Here’s a quote from july’s interview:
TC: Speaking of oligodextrin, what was the thinking behind the rice oligosaccharides in Metabolic Drive?
TP: They give rice oligosaccharides to dehydration victims to re-hydrate them. It’s so incredibly soothing to the gut; it pulls water into the right tissues. It’s a great, great, carbohydrate. In fact, we have a blend of two ï¿½?? for lack of a better word, sugars ï¿½?? that constitute the first complexed carbohydrate that’s actually anabolic.
TC: To quote John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, that’s a bold statement.
TP: No, really. We’re finding people who go out on grueling bike rides, endurance athletes, high-energy-expending athletes, come back at the same weight or even heavier than what they started out!
These guys are not losing water weight. And they’re building muscle even though they’re hardcore endurance athletes. It’s remarkable. We took a sugar called platinose (palatinose–spelling?) and rice oligodextrn (oligodextrin) and mixed them together in a certain ratio, and these guys go out and work out for two or three hours in the hot sun, and come back heavier than when they went out and that’s never been done before.
We’ll be introducing that blend to Testosterone real soon.
TC: That’s pretty cool, but this is the same oligodextrin that’s in Metabolic Complete, right? Along with pretty cool fibers like oat fiber and apple fiber, right?
TP: Exactly. Apple and oat. [/quote]
Palatinose and Rice Oligodextrin are both low-GI carbs. When offered in a powdered/liquid form, I can completely see how they would help athletes immensely with hydration, and be able to give them ridiculous sustained energy. I’m excited for this product, and I’m guessing that’s not all that’s in store with this.
