All about Glucorade

Glucorade is made up of the best ingredients in its state of the art facility in Bangalore. Glucose powder is made up of Glucose, Iron, Vitamin D, Vitamin C and Calcium in the right quantities. Glucorade's formulation is based on years of research and feedback from some of the world's top academic and practicing experts in the field of medicine. Let us understand why each of the ingredients is important to us.

Glucose

Every living being needs energy - but none of them can generate it on their own. It has to be taken in from outside. We humans meet our needs through what we eat every day. If we want to use this energy on a targeted basis during physical and mental activity, we have to know how our bodies convert food into energy. Carbohydrates, and most especially glucose (also known as dextrose) play a key role in this process.

The brain is far and away the biggest user of energy in the human body. It’s hard to believe that our brain – a real lightweight, at only about three percent of our total body weight - burns huge quantities of fuel at the same time, powering away like a turbine. That’s because the brain is the body’s all-powerful control center and the center of cognition, and it has to be able to cope with a flood of tasks at all times: By comparison to computer technology, the human brain manages a staggering ten trillion (that’s a 1 followed by 13 zeroes) analog calculations per second. With so much work to manage, this unique powerhouse always needs an adequate supply of fuel.

Amid all this activity, the brain grants itself one very special luxury - it prefers glucose to meet its energy needs. And those needs are huge indeed: The brain needs more than half of the glucose present in the body. In stressful situations, when brain activity ramps up, the brain can commandeer even more of the available glucose, up to 90 percent. These kinds of peaks occur when the brain is asked to perform to its utmost, such as during a challenging test.

But the brain itself cannot store even the smallest reserves of glucose. The only source from which it can draw glucose is the blood and the reserves stored by the liver. Hence, keep Glucose powder handy as it will never let you down.

Iron

Iron in the form of haemoglobin is essential for carrying oxygen to all body cells. A lack of it can lead to iron deficiency anaemia with some serious health effects. In women, iron deficiency leads to persistent colds, intense tiredness, pale skin, heavy menstrual losses, poor concentration and sometimes a craving for non-food items such as ice or corn-starch. Iron deficiency during pregnancy can lead to an early delivery and low birth weight. In infants and children, iron deficiency leaves children tired and can affect intelligence, delay development and cause behavioural problems. Glucorade is fortified with iron and is recommended to all growing children

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays an important role in protecting your bones and your body requires it to absorb calcium. Children need vitamin D to build strong bones, and adults need it to keep their bones strong and healthy. If you don't get enough vitamin D, you may lose bone, have lower bone density, and you're more likely to break bones as you age. Glucorade is fortified with Vitamin D to keep your bones strong and healthy.

Calcium

Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium helps our blood clot, nerves send messages and muscles contract . About 99 percent of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth. Each day, we lose calcium through our skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and faeces, but our bodies cannot produce new calcium. Glucose powder helps you replenish the calcium lost in your body.

Vitamin C

The benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. Glucorade is rich in Vitamin C and helps build your immune system.

Phosphorous

Phosphorus is an important constituent of human bones, meaning that it would be impossible to one function normally without an adequate amount of this mineral in the body. In fact, phosphorus is regularly noted as the second most profuse mineral in the human body, and is the second most important element when it comes to maintaining bone health and integrity, behind calcium. Glucose powder ensures adequate amount of phosphorous is supplied to your body.
