Mix 1 level scoop into 16 oz. of water or juice (or add to a smoothie). Consume before, during, and after intense exercise for best results. Double this amount if engaging in prolonged exertion of 2 hours or more. NOW Sports Waxy Maize is a complex starch derived from non-GMO corn that consists of 90% amylopectin, a high molecular weight, multi-branched polysaccharide. Due to its complex structure, amylopectin is slowly absorbed by the body; but once absorbed, it is easily assimilated by muscle tissue and converted into glycogen.* Glycogen is a stored carbohydrate that serves as a sustained pool of glucose that the body readily uses for energy production during exercise.* Waxy maize also supports glycogen resynthesis well after you are finished working out, sustaining energy levels throughout the day.*
- Highly Branched Amylopectin, Sustained Muscular Energy, Rapid Recovery
- 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
