Carbohydrates & gainers are a great help when building up muscle mass and strength. Within the body carbohydrates not only play an important role as an immediate source of energy, but are also a building-block of connective tissues such as cartilage and ligaments. They are therefore the most important component for the development of sporting performance, no matter what sporting activity you’re participating in. The advantage of gainers lies in their comprehensiveness. They represent an optimal combination of easily accessible carbohydrates and easily digestible proteins, and are often enriched with vitamins and minerals to boost regeneration and support muscle mass growth. They are mainly used in high-volume training to increase body weight, muscle mass and strength. After training, they are a good supplement to glycogen stores, reducing fatigue.
