PhD Battery 1kg
Energy output is a complex matter. We all need a certain amount of carbohydrates to ensure that our glycogen stores are fully stocked to ensure we can perform to our optimum ability during exercise. This is an accepted fact. Slightly more complicated is the matter of pre-workout energy continuation and post workout glycogen replenishment. Different carbohydrate sources with different Glycemic measurements are required to satisfy these varying requirements. It’s additionally important that along with the triple-charged carbohydrate content of Battery +/- 3, amino acids that are vital to the muscle preservation process are also included.
PhD's 3 steps to a perfect energy product:
Step 1- Long and mid-term energy. Battery +/-3 contains fructose and maltodextrin to ensure that when taken before and during exercise, the blood sugar spike will not be so great that it impairs long and mid-term performance. Fructose has a low glycemic rating (GI 23) so it’s conversion to blood sugar is slow and steady. Maltodextrin has been used throughout the years as a complex carbohydrate, though in reality, it is sufficient for mid-term energy storage and additionally effective when used post exercise to replenish glycogen stores and ensure complete and efficient recovery from training.
Step 2- Immediate glycogen replenishment- High Impact carbs!- Dextrose monohydrate has a high-glycemic rating ensuring immediate and effective glycogen replenishment and an instant elevation of blood sugar for complete recovery. This particular process becomes vital upon the conclusion of a workout. This is the period when glycogen reserves have been drained and need immediate replenishment.
Step 3- Added Branched Chain Amino Acids are considered the critical cluster of amino acids, the most vital of all.
PhD Nutrition consider Leucine, Iso-leucine and Valine as integral inclusions within Battery +/-3 for the important role they play in helping the body preserve muscle tissue throughout times of stress and during and after periods of intense exercise.
Leucine, Iso-leucine and Valine have long been heralded within the sports nutrition world. BCAA’s are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue and appear to preserve muscle stores of glycogen (1, 2).

|Usage||Before- Use a 40 gram serving of Battery+/-3 immediately prior to intense exercise, whether this be weight training, cycling, long distance running, rugby, it doesn’t matter. Any athletic pursuit that requires sustainable energy. During- As glycogen stores begin to dwindle, fatigue may set in. This is when a 40-60 gram serving of Battery+/-3 during exercise can be vital. If you are in the middle of a 2-3 hour run or bike ride, using Battery +/-3 during exercise could be your saviour. After- Upon completing an intense workout, glycogen reserves are diminished. You need replenishment and quickly. The simple carbohydrates present in Battery+/-3 will do the job and they’ll do it quick. Depending upon body weight and exercise performed, we would recommend between 60 grams (3 scoops) and 100 grams (5 scoops) of Battery+/-3 at this stage.|
