Glycerol is a naturally occurring colorless, odorless, and sweet-tasting chemical. It has been used in food
products for decades. Glycerol is produced from glucose, proteins, pyruvate, triacylglycerols and other glycerolipid metabolic pathways.
Glycerol is commonly used by runners and other endurance athletes because it's a powerful hydrating agent
with strong osmotic properties.
Endurance athletes can utilize glycerol in conjunction with extra water prior to an event in order to support
hydration and therefore enhance performance.
Interestingly bodybuilders have been known for taking glycerol prior to their stage appearance in lower dosages
without consuming the additional water to "dry out".
When consumed with water or a sports drink, glycerol causes greater fluid retention than drinking water alone.
Hyper hydration before exercise can reduce, delay or eliminate the negative effects of dehydration which is a
common occurrence for many athletes and individuals who train vigorously and for long periods of time.
Glycerol is becoming a more common ingredient thanks to its efficacy in the hydration and pump department
which ultimately makes this a very tempting and essential compound to get the most out of your workout with
epic pumps, hydration and performance. Try it for yourself and see why it's becoming so popular in and around
the supplement industry.
