Glycocharge is a food supplement useful for support during performance or for recovery after physical training. Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after intense and / or prolonged physical exercise that leads to muscle fatigue and depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscles. Yamamoto® Nutrition uses only the original 100% Made in Japan Cluster Dextrin™ Cyclines.
The product also provides a broad spectrum of amino acids, including BCAAs (Kyowa® Quality). Finally, Glycocharge is supplemented with vitamins that contribute to normal energy metabolism and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and minerals that contribute to physiological muscle function (magnesium, potassium). ).
Glycocharge also provides 500 mg of dipeptide l-alanyl-1-glutamine (Sustamine®) per daily dose. Yamamoto® Nutrition uses only and exclusively Sustamine® 100% Kyowa Quality®. Involved in the exchange of nitrogen between tissues and in the production and storage of glucose, it also plays an important role in moisturizing the muscle cell and supporting immune activity. Adding l-alanyl-1-glutamine to the rehydrating solution or drink will greatly enhance the increase in water and electrolyte absorption at the cellular level, giving the maximum potential anabolic environment.
The “optimal” beverage to support the most intense and prolonged performance, where all the components work together in maximum efficiency to support both the performance and the subsequent muscle recovery
Every athlete of any sport is very familiar with the importance and the decisive influence of carbohydrates on performance, resulting in the market of carbohydrate drinks that support the athletes before, during and after performance becoming increasingly varied and popular. However science continues to develop and we have come up with something that really is more “evolved”, which also avoids some problems of use that these drinks could present, especially at the gastrointestinal level. On this front in recent years the real innovation that proved to be a great success, came with the launch of highly branched Cyclodextrins (HBCD), a brand new form of carbohydrate that has brought a real evolution in this situation, of which Yamamoto® Nutrition has been a great promoter since its inception, spreading this product, in the form of the Japanese patent Cluster Dextrins, from 2015, and further highlighting the many benefits of the drinks used in pre-training and post-training, making this type of drink a true “must” for the athlete who wants a real support to his training and to improve the subsequent effects. Fuelled with this concept of total success, and riding this better opportunity to have the energy of carbohydrates rapidly available during performance, without causing any glycaemic drop or gastrointestinal disturbance, it was decided to insert a mixture of essential amino acids and precious electrolytes so that these elements could arrive in the circulatory stream and to the muscles in a very short time. And so, it was born: Glycocharge. The drink can be defined as “optimal” for the support of the most intense and prolonged performance, where all the components work in maximum efficiency to support both the performance and the subsequent muscle recovery, providing factors that accelerate not only their constant supply by exploiting the hyperaemia induced by muscular training, but “positioning” them in advance for the recovery process, preparing new glycogen, and feeding the synthesis of new proteins, maintaining maximum cellular hydration, since promoting an electrolyte balance is fundamental not only for performance but also for all those processes of healing and muscular adaptation. Moreover, an athlete who trains with the utmost intensity, needs maximum concentration and an energetic, metabolic, organic and endocrine situation at maximum efficiency. Through mixtures of elements based on simple sugars specific to performance, there is a definite recall of fluids to the intestine, subtracting “vital” blood to the muscles at work and then risking an unpleasant swelling and nausea up to flatulence and risk of osmotic diarrhea. Other than muscle pumping and maximum yield in training. For this reason many clearly abandoned the proven concept of “nutrition periworkout”, not taking advantage of this potential moment to ride the waves of certain mechanisms that if well “amplified”, will lead not only to the best performance in training even for a prolonged period, but also a better recovery with a more efficient storage of glycogen and reconstruction of the damaged muscles themselves.
Thanks to the “ideal” mixture of elements contained in Glycocharge, the athlete is found to have a real support, an amplifier of the effects of stimulation that is sought in and from training, rich in energy and plastic material available immediately, without having any gastrointestinal disturbance typical of previous generation carbohydrate beverages, and perhaps with poorly absorbed mineral salts. No digestive disturbance as the elements pass quickly through the gastrointestinal tract without creating a particular digestive commitment with great blood draw, a dense “content” of elements quickly making its way to the bloodstream, ready to be conveyed to the muscles. In workouts of a certain duration, it is even easier to perceive that there is no spike or “glycaemic” crash, due to the modulatory action on insulin. In fact, the great protagonists of this new integrator of the “gold” line are the Ciclodextrins, the innovative form of carbohydrate derived from particular enzymatic reactions on amylopectin, with higher solubility and absorption characteristics than any other form of carbohydrate such as dextrose/glucose, maltodextrin, but also the newest waxy and vitargo. Equipped with high molecular weight and very low osmolarity, from gastric emptying it will then be then sent from the intestine to the muscles without creating any feeling of nausea or fermentation swelling, positioning itself as a carbohydrate that really allows a stable energy supply over time, prolonging the onset of fatigue and modulating the increase in insulin and cortisol. The focus remains on the performance, contraction and maximum hyperaemia of the muscles being trained or training, which will almost immediately be available as carbohydrates, essential amino acids in free form, and Sustamine as a dipeptide, will not require any digestion and will be also made bioavailable very quickly during training to act as an amplifier for the synthesis of new proteins.
Thanks to the “ideal” combination of this specific drink for intra workouts but definitely favourable for post workouts, we will have significant improvements on:
- better recovery during the session and between sessions – better nutrient transport (e.g. preciousessential
- amino acids and Sustamine) – constant glycaemic support (no peak or crash);
- better resistance and reduced perception of fatigue;
- reduction of the intensity of the inflammation and the duration of the DOMS;
- no gastrointestinal disturbance;
- maximisation of cellular hydration;
- decreased likelihood of the onset of cramps;
- modulation of stress hormones, such as cortisol induced by training.
The features of Glycocharge are widely used and effective not only for the body builder but for the athlete of any sport who requires performance with maximum intensity such as for combat sports (MMA, Kick boxing, Muay Thay, Greco-Roman fight, Brazilian Ju Jitsu, etc..), cross fitters and athletes involved in endurance sports such as cycling, triathlon, athletics, football, etc.. who want increased support for performance or recovery for the next session, favoured by being able to always keep highly hydrated and support muscular work of precious mineral elements such as magnesium and potassium in citrate form.

How to use: mix 1 level scoop (20 g) in 200 ml of water twice a day, after working out. To contribute to muscle recovery after very intense and/or prolonged workouts, consume carbohydrates from all sources at a total intake of 4 g per kg body weight (for example, for a 70 kg man the intake is 280 g), starting within 4 hours after training and ending no later than 6 hours after training.
