Redcon1 RPG Nutrient Partitioning
A glucose disposal agent such as RPG helps to lower blood glucose levels by transporting glucose from the blood stream into the muscle cell where it can be stored as glycogen. Glycogen is your body’s fuel for anaerobic activities such as weight training. If there is an abundance of glucose in the blood for too long, the body can convert that glucose to glycerol, which makes up the backbone of a triglyceride, which is how your body stores fat. So when ingesting a high carbohydrate meal, a glucose disposal agent helps you to make the most of the glucose for fuel and not have it stored as fat.
RPG is non-hormonal, it is not a proinsulin (helps create insulin) product, it is an insulin mimicker (acts like insulin). To take advantage of the powerful ingredients contained within RPG, you would want to ingest it with carbohydrates. If you were to take RPG without ingesting carbohydrates, you would experience a drop in blood sugar levels and the effects that come with it (nausea, light-headedness, sweating), so it is important to ingest carbohydrates with RPG. RPG is going to try to transport glucose out of the bloodstream into the muscle; if there is little to no blood glucose, you could have a hypoglycemic experience.
