Decaduro is first for a couple of reasons. First, not everybody can tolerate caffeine and may feel like they have nowhere to turn for an immediate energy source. Second, it’s got a rather interesting blend of ingredients that have scientific backing.2. Caffeine
Acetyl L-Carnitine is a stimulant like caffeine, but it isn’t as strong, which means it isn’t as harsh to those who are extremely sensitive to stimulants. Basically, it provides the alertness without the side effects some people experience. Additionally, it contains L-Citruline, which is an amino acid also found in Decaduro and which is used to naturally decrease fatigue. Impressively, it has been said to reduce fatigue and improve both aerobic and anaerobic endurance. This, coupled with the stimulating properties of Acetyl L-Carnitine, is more than likely to give you the feelgood factor during your workout.
Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide produced from starch (carbohydrate). As you probably know, carbs are our primary fuel source during physical activity. As a supplement, maltodextrin is easily digestible and can be utilized by the body as rapidly as glucose. This makes it a good choice as an immediate source of energy. Many athletes and bodybuilders use maltodextrin as an intra-workout (consumed during a training session) to provide the energy required to perform to the max. It usually comes as a powder ready to mix with water.
Different supplements will cause different responses depending on your tolerances. It isn’t a “one size fits all” thing, and it can take time to find out what works best for you. It’s also important to remember not to overuse some of these supplements. Overuse can be dangerous, and we should only use supplements when we really need them. If we use them all the time, we won’t be able to identify their effects clearly.
