Why

Carbohydrates are the most efficient macronutrient for the body to use as a fuel source. By providing carbohydrates to muscles you both replenish energy levels and ensure that your performance levels will not suffer due to inadequate glycogen levels.

When

Glycomaize is best suited straight after a session of extensive cardiovascular activity or else used to load the body with carbohydrates before cardiovascular activity.

Who

Glycomaize is suitable for both men and women who are looking to increase carbohydrate intake to promote performance and/or recovery.

Predator Nutrition Glycomaize Review

Glycomaize is a carbohydrate supplement based around two relatively unusual carbohydrate sources, waxy maize starch and trehalose. Optimum Nutrition have stated that they include the waxy maize starch because of its fast release rate and the trehalose for its sustained delivery over time but we have never come across a study supporting the contention that waxy maize starch is a fast digesting carbohydrate. In fact, numerous studies have shown that it is actually slower to be absorbed than commonly used sugars such as maltodextrin and dextrose.

While the reasoning behind its inclusion in Glycomaize is flawed, wxy maize starch actually has some unique properties which we think make it a good choice of supplement namely it tastes better in our view than simple sugars as well as being easier on the digestive system. Finally, we do not subscribe to the notion that extremely fast acting carbs are that important for most athletes and indeed some research suggests a slower, more sustained delivery of carbs to muscles is superior for glycogen replenishment.

In sum, we like Glycomaize after all!
