Sorry if this is a newbie question.......

The purpose of having dextrose w/ my post workout shake is to spike my insulin, so my body will absorb the protien better/faster.........right???

In a nutshell, yes. Insulin shuttles nutrients into your cells

Another reason would be that after a workout, your body needs to replenish lost muscle glycogen as soon as possible, so you'd want your carbs in the form of simple sugars so that you'd get quick digestion and absorbtion into your bloodstream
