Dextrose, commonly called glucose, d-glucose, or blood sugar, occurs naturally in food, and is moderately
sweet. It is a monosaccharide (basic unit of carbohydrates, C6H1206) and has a high glycemic index (digested
carbohydrates ability to raise blood glucose levels, also called GI) ranking at 100.
Dextrose is a type of sugar. When rating the speed at which carbohydrates enter the bloodstream we give
them a score against the Glycemic Index. The higher the GI the faster the carbohydrate enters the system.
Carbohydrates enter the blood stream as glucose and have to be either burnt as fuel for energy, stored in
muscle cells as glycogen or stored in fat cells as triglycerides.
As the glucose is in the blood stream the body stimulates the release of a carrier hormone insulin, which
essentially, takes the glucose from the blood and determines where it is to be deposited. Dextrose rates very
high on the glycemic index meaning that it enters our system extremely fast and so stimulates a high insulin
response very quickly. Insulin is a very anabolic hormone as it takes not only glucose to muscle cells, but
proteins, amino acids and other essential nutrients such as creatine and glutamine etc.
Your body needs zinc for the production, repair, and functioning of DNA, the genetic map and a basic building
block of cells, so getting enough is particularly important for the rapid cell growth that occurs during
-Zinc is an essential mineral that helps support your immune system, maintain your sense of taste and smell,
and heal wounds. It’s also important for forming healthy sperm and eggs.
-Zinc supplementation improves immunity.
-Zinc deficiency also has direct effects on the gastrointestinal tract such as impaired intestinal brush border,
increased secretion in response to bacterial enterotoxins and perturbations in intestinal permeability. Zinc
supplementation improves the transport of water and electrolytes across the intestinal mucosa in
experimental zinc deficiency.
-Zinc plays a fundamental role in cellular metabolism and is postulated to modulate host resistance to various
infections. Patients with pneumonia have been found to have lower blood zinc levels as compared to
Even in well nourished children suffering from acute lower respiratory infection, serum zinc levels have been
found to be lower. Case reports and observational studies have shown a correlation between low plasma zinc
concentrations in children and a greater susceptibility to infections.
