Why Active Root - How does it work?

Active Root uses 32.7g of naturally occurring cane sugar sucrose, a dissacharide which is made up of 50% fructose and 50% glucose. Because it is a mix of 2 types of sugars with differing methods of absorption, the small intestine is more able to absorb the maximum amount of fuel needed for the body to function. On top of this, Active Root cane sugar has a lower glycemic index that's similar to bananas and dates. This helps deliver steadier fuel delivery with fewer peaks and troughs.
