Whereas proteins help with muscle rebuilding, carbs refuel and replenish.
Of the various types available, Waxy Maize Starch and Trehalose are two of the best. Waxy maize starches are long-chain, highly-branched, exceptionally-dense complex carbohydrates that are rapidly absorbed.
Trehalose is a much smaller, slower-digesting molecule comprised of two unusually linked glucose sugars.
Together, these carbohydrates provide immediate and intermediate energy, top-off glycogen stores, and aid with nutrient absorption.
That’s why they’re the foundation for Optimum Nutrition Glyco-Maize formula. Unlike other high-carbohydrate formulas that you may have used in the past, Glyco-Maize is designed to be used often and in greater amounts.
So, when you’re ready to power-up your pre-, during- & post-workout drinks and shakes to meet the intensity of your sports, you’re ready for Optimum Nutrition Glyco-Maize.

- Works, but priceyReview by _Freak (4 September 2019)
- No bloating and gets the job done. I take it after my training with my whey shake. It is expensive for waxy maize. ON I guess.
