CYCLODEX COMPLETE is a highly versatile carbohydrate-based supplement, exclusively created to improve performance and reduce fatigue in all sports that demand mixed high-intensity exertion such as CrossFit®, team sports such as football, rugby, volleyball, basketball, waterpolo, hockey, and prolonged exertion in, for example, endurance and ultra-endurance sports. Due to the cyclodextrins found in this supplement, Cyclodex Complete is suitable for immediate PRE training or PRE competition intake, offering a considerable amount of rapidly absorbed, slow-release carbohydrates, thus avoiding conditions of hypoglycaemia and providing a gradual supply of energy during particularly taxing sessions.
A 50 g dose is made up of:
- 31 g HBCD, i.e. highly branched cyclodextrins (Cluster Dextrin™), which are oligosaccharides extracted from starchy foods , commonly regarded as waxy corn starch, and Vitargo™ extracted from barley. The advantage of Cyclodextrins over the latter two glucose polymers is actually due to their very high solubility, their ability to improve the absorption of other compounds they bind to, and their resistance to high temperatures and low pH values. Their high molecular weight (160 kDa) and short molecular chain also means that they are more rapidly discharged from the stomach and more gradually released into the bloodstream than simple glucose . This particular feature makes cyclodextrin effective in high intensity sports , precisely because gastric emptying is compromised during physical activity exceeding 75% VO2Max , whereas simple glucose would take too long to leave the stomach and enter the bloodstream. Cyclodextrins have also been shown to be more efficient than simple glucose supplements in extending endurance time and maintaining blood sugar concentration during training . Finally, they result in a lower perception of effort than what is experienced on taking maltodextrins , thereby creating a feeling of stamina while training.
- Mineral salts such as Potassium 500 mg and Magnesium 450 mg, essential for the maintenance of the nervous system, the osteomuscular system and the electrolytic balance during exertion and sweating .
- A pool of branched-chain amino acids, (BCAA) in a 2:1:1 ratio (L-Leucine 2.5 g; L-Isoleucine 1.25 g; L-Valine 1.25 g), primarily facilitates glucose uptake via the PI3K/aPKC pathway, independent of the mTOR pathway and its use within the cells. These also perform a specific neuronal activation function, since they compete with the same uptake pathway as tryptophan , which increases fatigue during training; intake of these before and during training therefore increases neuronal excitation by the mTOR pathway, thus enabling greater focus and delaying the onset of fatigue  .
- 3 g of Creatine (Creapure™), for an instant increase in the phosphocreatine (PC) stores  essential for ATP synthesis during high intensity effort of short to medium duration; for the maintenance of adequate hydration and tone in the cells , given the loss of fluids due to physical activity; for the reduction of fatigue  under chronic conditions and sleep deprivation ; for the enhancement of glucose uptake in the cells  and thereby the successful use of glucose for energy purposes; for an increase in lean body mass and the diameter of type I, IIa and IIx muscle fibres .
Food supplements are not intended as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Due to the presence of creatine the product is intended for adults only. Do not use during pregnancy or when breastfeeding. Do not give to children. Do not use for extended periods without consulting a doctor. Keep out of the reach of children under 3 years. Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid exposure to localised heat sources and sunlight. The minimum durability period refers to the product correctly stored in intact packaging. Do not dispose into the environment after use.
Intolerances and lifestyles
CYCLODEX COMPLETE is a gluten-free, lactose-free dietary supplement and therefore suitable for people with coeliac disease or lactose intolerance. The product is also the ideal way to supplement a vegetarian or vegan diet.
