Supplement Direct Glycerol MonoStearate (GMS) occurs naturally in the body. When it is ingested as a supplement, it is absorbed and increases the concentration of the fluid in the blood and tissues. The concentration of these fluids is held constant by the body, so water consumed with glycerol is not excreted until the extra glycerol is either removed by the kidneys or broken down by the body.  Taking glycerol in supplemental form quickly improves hydration and the absorption of other supplements that are taken with it. The end result is faster delivery of nutrients when and where you need them and a prolonged "pump effect" during your workouts. SD Glycerol is esterified with stearic acid to form GMS. GMS is a colorless, odorless and sweet-tasting flaky powder that is hygroscopic (Absorbs water from the air so keep bag tightly closed). Suggested Use. 1 serving added to your existing pre-workout or intra-workout per hour of exercise or alone by mouth chased with a 4-8 oz followed with adequate amounts of water to support increased hydration and fullness. Note: GMS not very soluable in water so it will not go into solution well. Nutrition Facts: Serving Size 5 gram (1 Scoop) Servings per container 50.

GMS (Glycerol MonoStearate)



GMS is a solid form of trihydric alcohol compound (Although mistakenly categorized as a carbohydrate by the FDA/NAS) glycerin (The terms glycerin,glycerine & glycerol are often used interchangeably).Glycerin is a sweet (GMS is salty on the contrary),water clear,odorless & viscous liquid commonly used in personal care & pharmaceutical formulations. Food-grade glycerin is obtained from fats by transesterification.Glycerin is a hyperhydrating agent (Increasing blood plasma volume through osmosis) that can lower blood pressure,thermoregulate the body & induce vasodilation.

Glycerin can delay fatigue associated with dehydration in hot/humid environments for trained endurance athletes

Why not Glycerin?

The question is why GMS?GMS is used instead of glycerin because glycerin is liquid.One way to make it solid (Powder) at RT is esterifying it with stearic acid (Fully saturated 18-carbon fatty acid).
Because GMS is a mono-glyceride (Fat) with 2 free hydroxyl groups it is stored as adipose tissue by re-esterification to di/tri-glycerides in presence of fatty acids or hydrolysed by pancreatic lipase & absorbed through the small intestine lumen to the liver where it is phorsphorylated to glycerol-3-phosphate (By enzyme glycerol kinase) which can be used to form tri-glycerides or generate ATP by the glycerol-P-shuttle system.

Some companies pushing GMS claim that stearic acid can generate ATP in myocytes by Beta-oxidation.This only happens if the body empties it's glycogen stores (>1h exercise) & start to use stored tri-glycerides (Adipose droplets).Also the absorption rate of stearic acid is lower than that of other saturated fatty acids
.

Is GMS safe?

Glycerin is of low toxicity & no significant adverse side effects are associated with it diluted with fluids but some subjects may experience headaches,nausea & diarrhea following glycerin consumption. In those individuals where increased blood volume may be undesirable including conditions such as pregnancy,high blood pressure,severe dehydration, anuria,congestive heart failure,pulmonary edema,hemolytic anemia,diabetes & kidney disease glycerin supplementation should be avoided.
The stearic acid in GMS is said to promote arterial thrombogenesis like other long-chain saturated fatty acids. Although previously thought to be hypercholesterolemic is proven to not rise serum cholesterol levels like others of it's kind.
