Why 3CARB?

Finding the right carbohydrate to fuel yourself is difficult. Even complex carb sources fade after an hour or two, leaving you in a situation where you’re forced to rely on sugary drinks or gels to keep from crashing. As athletes ourselves, we’ve tried everything, from high carbs to ketogenic diets, in search of the perfect way to fuel ourselves. 

3Carb is the result of that search. It is a carbohydrate that is absorbed quickly but provides steady, long lasting energy. It does this by helping your body switch to burning fat while also buffering lactate. The end result is a carbohydrate that isn’t just a superior fuel source, but also helps your body become more efficient. 

The Science…

3Carb is a resistant starch – meaning although it’s made from waxy maize, it’s modified to act like a fiber. It produces low glucose and insulin responses, helping you sustain and maintain free fatty acid (FFA) oxidation in both the liver and muscles.  

This steady flow of energy comes without spikes and no drop off: Energy for hours.  We’ve been using and testing 3Carb for years, both with ourselves and the athletes we coach. We’ve successfully used it with Keto-adapted athletes as well as those on more traditional diets, from endurance events to the weight room, and it’s never let us – or our athletes – down.

Directions for use: Mix 1 serving (1 scoop) with 8-12 ounces of water any time you need extra carbohydrates to fuel your training and competition.  Alternately, 3Carb can be added to your favorite protein powder or used to add a high performance carb to ordinary baked goods.
