    Agave nectar?

    Just wondering about taking agave nectar for a post workout insulin spike? I've heard it causes insulin resistance? Educate me please.

    -Thanks, Afrohorse.

    In the Gym, if i could
    it will typically not cause a spike and is used as a substitute for sugar in many things, its' classified as a medium on the glycemic index.. if my memory isn't screwed..

    question.. why would you want a pre workout spike?? i can understand the post workout spike since you want to infuse as much nutrients into the damaged muscle tissue as you can..

    Agave is actually quite low on the glycemic index (GI). It is lower than (obviously) glucose as well as honey. I have a bottle of Sohgave I use on occasion, and the label states it "will not cause a blood sugar spike like many other sweeteners since it is lower on the Glycemic Index (17 GI)."
