ProSupps Karbolic is a pre- and post-workout carbohydrate drink. Consuming a carbs before and after workouts has many benefits. Carbohydrate drinks are a quick source of fuel to help you power through your workouts without getting fatigued. Drinking a carb drink post-workout provides quick glycogen replenishment.

ProSupps has always put out some of the best supplements. Is taking Karbolic pre and post-workout the ultimate anabolic booster to optimize all the hard work you are putting in at the gym? Let’s take a closer look at ProSupps Karbolic.

Why Do Athletes Need Karbolic?

When it comes to pre-workout and post-workout supplements, it would be safe for me to make the assumption that most people have used or are using a pre-workout booster and drinking a protein shake following their workout. When it comes to pre-workout supplements, they are great for giving you a “pump” and delivering a shot of energy and focus. These are important, but what your body really needs is fuel to not only get you through your workout but help you get the most from your workout. Karbolic contains fast-digesting carbs that hit your body quickly, helping you stay anabolic, and slow-digesting carbs that will help keep you anabolic until the end of your training session.

When muscles are worked out they are depleted of glycogen, the stored form of carbohydrates. Have you ever gone on a low carb diet and felt weak, tired and sluggish? That’s because you are depriving your muscles of the fuel they need. After a workout your muscles are like sponges, ready to absorb everything and anything you feed them. You need to feed them a quality source of carbs, like Karbolic along with some sort of protein to stimulate protein synthesis. When you replenish glycogen stores water gets pulled into the muscle. If carbohydrates are consumed without excess water, water from underneath the skin will be pulled into the muscle. This is what bodybuilders do pre-contest in order to give them a more dry look.

What’s In Karbolic?

According to ProSupps, Karbolic “is the first and ONLY dietary supplement to use Pterosport” [1], a scientifically designed extract that contains ingredients backed by more than ONE HUNDRED clinical and basic research studies… peer-reviewed studies that are published in prestigious journals done on real human subjects.

What Is PteroSport?

Pterosport is a scientifically proven ratio of stilbenoids that have been proven to enhance the synthesis of anti-oxidants and carbohydrates. These stilbenoids are Resveratrol, Pterostilbene, Piceatannol, and Piceid.

What Kind of Carbs Does Karbolic Use?

Karbolic uses a proprietary blend of long, medium and short chain polysaccharides derived from potato, rice and corn, corn dextrin, taurine, trimethylglycine, polyglucose (rice starch), lecithin (from soy) and carrageenan. The combination of long, medium and short chain polysaccharides are designed to transport nutrients and carbohydrates rapidly into the muscle tissue.

When is the best time to take Karbolic?

According to ProSupps, on training days you should always consume one serving of Karbolic™ with 16 oz. of water immediately after your workout. You can combine 1 scoop of Karbolic™ with your pre & intra workout nutrients to drastically increase their absorption rate. Amino acids, Creatine HCL, nitric oxide, glutamine, BCAA’s & other cell volumizers that are mixed with Karbolic™ will be “super-shuttled” through the stomach and delivered into hungry muscle cells.

Final Thoughts on Karbolic

Everyone seems pretty dialed in with their protein supplements and pre-workout supplements, but seem to neglect the power of good clean carbs. A carb drink like Karbolic will increase the nutrient uptake of other supplements your are taking, like creatine mentioned above. Your muscles will feel fuller for a longer period of time. You will have the fuel you need to sustain an intense workout for a longer period of time. Why wouldn’t you take Karbolic?
