Dextrose is a key ingredient in a lot of bodybuiling supplements, especialy protein powers and creatine. Thing is it's a very cheap product to buy. In Australia it's less than $5 for 500g. A lot of your "weight gain" powders will have dextrose in them, as do creatine supps to help the uptake through your body.
I'm trying to find the ad for a Muscle Tech creatine where they advertise the fact it's full of dextrose to help the creatine. You're better off buy raw creatine and adding a scoop of dextrose yourself than buying their prodcut. Same with protein powders, buy a low carb protein, have it during the day and add a scoop of dextrose to your pre and post workout shakes.
o ok cool, so i would still build muscle if i eat 0 carbs then? how many carbs do u eat a day?
