Coconut Lime Flavor


Ingredients: *Maltodextrin, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Stevia Leaf Extract.

Contains: No Allergens.

*Maltodextrin is an easily digested carbohydrate made from corn starch. It contains small chains of several dextrose molecules held together by very weak hydrogen bonds. This makes its absorption slower than sucrose and thus elicits maltodextrin as an excellent fuel for preoperative drinks. Sports drinks which contain a higher sucrose content and higher osmolarity do not provide the same level of improvement in insulin sensitivity as well as having inferior gastric emptying times. Multiple studies in orthopedic surgery have confirmed the safety of utilizing a clear maltodextrin supplement with a low osmolarity concentration in both elderly as well as Type II diabetic patients undergoing joint arthroplasty.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Carbohydrate Loading?

Carbohydrate loading, also known as carb loading, is a nutrition technique that aims to optimize glycogen reserves in the body, allowing athletes to perform at higher intensities and for longer periods. Instead of fasting, this method involves consuming increased amounts of carbohydrates in meals and snacks, typically for 1-3 days prior to a competition or performance. This technique has also been applied to pre-surgical procedures to improve post-operative recovery and reduce catabolic effects on the body.

When to pre-op carb load?

Consuming a drink containing complex carbohydrates 2-3 hours before a surgical procedure is a safe and effective substitute for the traditional pre-surgery fasting (NPO*) protocol. By providing the body with a source of nourishment, complex carbohydrates help maintain a fed state and mitigate the stress response, including insulin resistance, that can result from surgery.

What does NSF Certified for Sport® mean?

The Certified for Sport® certification is the only independent third-party certification program recognized by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA),Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, and the Canadian Football League. Certified for Sport® is also recommended by the NFL,NBA,PGA,LPGA,CCES,CPSDA,iNADO,Ironman,NASCAR,Taylor Hooton Foundation, and many other organizations seeking to mitigate the risks of contaminated dietary supplements.

There are numerous quality components of the Certified for Sport® certification program, which verifies that:

  • Products do not contain any of 290 substances banned by major athletic organizations
  • The contents of the supplement actually match what is printed on the label
  • There are no unsafe levels of contaminants in the tested products
  • The product is manufactured at a facility that is GMP Certified and audited annually or bi-annually based on grade for quality and safety by NSF

What are ERAS guidelines?

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery ERAS® is a multimodal perioperative care pathway designed to achieve early recovery for patients undergoing major surgery.

ERAS® specifically recommends preoperative carbohydrate treatment in orthopaedic procedures.

The Science

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) programs have established guidelines to minimize the surgical stress response and the deleterious effects that it has on patients. ERAS protocols such as screening for poor nutritional status and providing preoperative carbohydrate clear fluids instead of fasting provide effective measures to improve outcomes and decrease postoperative complications.
