WHY DOES GUT ROT HAP­PEN?

Bicycling (South Africa) - - Stories -

The sim­ple sug­ars in your gut need the help of a molec­u­lar trans­porter to make it to your mus­cles. But there are only so many of these trans­porters avail­able – enough to move 60 grams of glu­cose per hour, and 30 grams of fruc­tose. When ex­cess sug­ars get stuck in your gut, GI distress sets in. To pre­vent it, take in food or drinks with a mix of carbs, like Pow­erBar’s En­ergy Blasts – they con­tain a blend of sug­ars for max­i­mum ab­sorp­tion.
