Highly Branched Amylopectin
Sustained Muscular Energy
A Dietary Supplement
NOW® Waxy Maize is a complex starch derived from Non-GMO corn that is naturally high in amylopectin‚ a high molecular weight‚ highly branched polysaccharide. Unlike typical corn starch products‚ which contain an average of 70-75% amylopectin‚ NOW® Waxy Maize typically contains 90% amylopectin. Amylopectin is slowly absorbed by the body‚ and then easily assimilated by muscle tissue‚ where it is converted into glycogen. Glycogen can then provide a sustained source of glucose for energy. Unlike maltodextrin or dextrose‚ Waxy Maize supports glycogen resynthesis well after you are finished working out and sustains energy levels throughout the day.

Overall Rating for NOW® Sports - Waxy Maize Powder - 5.5 lbs (2495 Grams)
By Tyler Johnson

Great complex carbs source.
Carbs are a must post workout! I add a couple scoops to my protein shakes. Waxy Maize Powder by NOW Foods mixes great and has little effect on the taste of my post workout protein shakes!
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
