Dextrose is it bad?

Dextrose

Dextrose
is d isomer of glucose, or simple sugar. It is a necessary fuel source for humans. I suppose too much of it taken by mouth could be bad because it might raise blood sugar and insulin requirements. But so are a lot of other things when taken in extreme amounts.

Can dextrose 50% be used in bodybuilding?

It's sugar

Weight_training
I don't know how you would use it. It's sugar water. I guess if you wanted to recover your glycogen stores it might be useful. Otherwise I see no difference in that and drinking a Gatorade after working out.
