Default Dextrose and Maltodextrin in PWO Shakes

Here's a good article about why you should use both dextrose and maltodextrin in your PWO shakes. I had been using just dextrose, but I'm gonna get some malto, now, too.

Ya I have always heard that you should do a 50/50 mix of the two but have been too lazy to buy the malto. Maybe I will finally have to get around to doing it also.

Tomorrow I'm picking up a jug of Vitargo which has a way better absorbtion rate of carbs/creatine.

Quote:
VitargoŽ passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose, thus eliminating the risk of stomach discomfort as often seen in creatine/dextrose formulas
Quote:
VitargoŽ is a newly developed and patented sugar-free high molecular weight carbohydrate from Sweden
Expensive, but since I only hit the gym three days a week, it'll last quite a while.

I have always done the 50/50 mainly because I can't stand the sweetness of dex alone
