NOW Carbo Gain is a 100% pure maltodextrin, an easily digestible complex carbohydrate derived from corn. Maltodextrin contains "glucose polymers", linked sugar compounds that are easier fot he body to assimilate and use. Glucose polymers are metabolized at a slow, steady rate that can help to sustain energy levels during endurance-oriented workouts and/or athletic events and support weight gain. Carbo Gain contains virtually no protein, fat or fiber and is a convenient source of energy for active individuals.*
I take Carbo Gain before and after a workout session. It helps cut down lactic acid or muscle pain/soarness. You can not drink this straight though! I did once and it was awful, but once I mixed it with Kool-Aid it was awesome.
This is just straight up maltodextrin, so not much to review. There isn't much taste unlike the sugary sweetness of dextrose. However, it makes for a slower release of carbs and is great mixed with protein powder and dextrose after a workout. I tried to find maltodextrin in a smaller size, but it doesn't seem to go bad if you keep it sealed and dry. My only major complaint is that it clumps up easily, but I don't' mind the clumps too much.
Contains NO salt, wheat, yeast, gluten, soy, milk or preservatives. Vegetarian formula.
