Glucose (dextrose) is commonly known as sugar. It is a complex carbohydrate that is used by humans, animals and plants as a source of energy. It is present in many foods including sweets, pasta, bread and potatoes. Glucose has a variety of uses, but there are a few potential dangers to be aware of as well.
As a pre-exercise supplement we would recommend consuming approximately 25-30g of Dextrose. During exercise its use is optional, but if you are adding it to a beverage we would suggest a figure in the region of 15-20g, to be consumed gradually throughout your exercise period. As a post-exercise supplement we would recommend immediately consuming approximately 50-75g of Dextrose.
Many foods contain glucose, which is used by the muscles, brain and other bodily organs. The sugars in food are broken down in the stomach and distributed throughout the body via the bloodstream, where it provides energy to the body. Although glucose is necessary for powering the human body, erratic levels of glucose can cause a myriad of health problems.
Glucose is found in the sap of plants. It is stored in plants in the form of starch, and is used by the plant on a cellular level for the development of leaves, roots and stems. In plants, glucose is first formed in the leaves, and is then transported to the seeds and roots, where it is stored until the plant needs it.
For individuals suffering from hypoglycemia, intravenous glucose is used to stabilize sugar levels in their body.
