The trillions of cells and tissues in the muscles need sugar for energy. When muscles are active, they use almost four times as much glycogen as at rest. It is a scientific discovery that the pre-digested sugars in pollen quickly convert into glycogen in the blood. Almost immediately after ingestion, a rapid, natural absorption of carbohydrates occurs and nutrition is sent to the muscle cells and tissues. This results in a powerful and energetic feeling and helps athletes to improve their performance.
