Multiple Transportable Carbohydrates and Their Benefits

During moderate intensity exercise carbohydrate and fat are the two important fuels and their relative contribution is dependent on a number of factors including the pre-exercise carbohydrate stores, the exercise intensity and duration and the training status of the subject (Jeukendrup, 2003).

Creatine, Carbs, and Fluids: How Important in Soccer Nutrition?

There is no persuasive evidence that creatine supplementation is beneficial to soccer play. Because most of the running in soccer is at less than maximal speed, it is unlikely that creatine supplementation would have any important benefits. However, adequate dietary carbohydrate in the days and hours before strenuous training and competition is critical to maintaining adequate glycogen level in the muscles. Also, even slight dehydration can be detrimental to impair performance in soccer.

Carbohydrates, Hormones, and Endurance Performance

Strenuous prolonged exercise causes a decrease in blood glucose and a corresponding increase in concentrations of the glucoregulatory hormones. At the same time blood insulin levels fall. Carbohydrate ingestion during endurance exercise blunts these hormonal alterations and can help spare muscle glycogen, maintain blood glucose and therby delaying fatigue.

Dietary Carbohydrate & Performance of Brief, Intense Exercise

How beneficial is dietary carbohydrate when your sport consists of short repeated bursts of high power? Studies examining resistance exercise, single and repeated sprints, and the role of carbohydrate as a fuel are contained in this latest publication. The supplement includes a formula to calculate your personal carbohydrate needs, instructions for analyzing your own diet, and a table illustrating the carbohydrate content of common foods.

Carbohydrates, Branched-Chain Amino Acids and Endurance: The Central Fatigue Hypothesis

The central fatigue hypothesis suggests that increased brain serotonin (5-HT) can cause a deterioration in sport and exercise performance. Whether branched-chain amino acid supplementation can effect performance remains uncertain.
