Carbo Gain - Pure Maltodextrin Overview

Carbs have become a dirty word with respect to weight loss but it's a mistake to think that carbs don't have their place. The right intake of the right kind of carbs is one of the make or break factors in a weight loss or training program, and that's where NOW Foods Carbo Gain is such a useful product.

Carbo Gain lets you add precise amounts of carbohydratres to your diet, so that when you need to do so, you don't have to make major meal plan changes, or eat calorie-rich carbs like a pasta. You need carbs right after a workout, for example, so adding Carbo Gain to your low carb whey protein makes it a much better post-workout recovery shake than without it. Or double up the protein powder serving and add liberal amounts of Carbo Gain to make a weight gain shake. Carbo Gain consists of very pure and high-quality maltodextrin which has a mildly sweet taste and works with any flavor or sweetener. Be aware, though, that although maltodextrin is structurally a complex carbohydrate, it has a high glycemic index unlike complex carbs from whole grains, oatmeal or vegetables. That doesn't make Carbo Gain a bad product, it just means you should use Carbo Gain as a carb source only, not as a substitute for these necessary and healthy whole-food carb sources.

Carbo Gain - Pure Maltodextrin Description from NOW
NOW Carbo Gain is a 100% pure complex carbohydrate supplement derived from maltodextrin, an easily digestible blend of complex carbohydrates from corn starch. Maltodextrin contains "glucose polymers", linked sugar compounds that are easier for the 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. Look to NOW for all of your hight quality sports supplement needs.

solid product

Not much to critique on this product, does what is should do: good quality complex carbs at a killer price $25 for 8lbs. The 8lb tub will last you forever, depending on how much you use of course. I use this together with a scoop of whey protein after workouts, and I must say it mixes up really well,,, adds a nice creamy texture to whatever flavor of protein youre using. Great stuff.

Best thing out there for weight gain

this stuff helped me get from 155 to 180, mind you I still didnt get there overnight. I believe I gained 15 lbs in 2 months, however. Best taken before and after a workout and combined with high protein meals. I take 2 scoops using my protein scooper and mix it with 2 cups of juice and 1 cup of water in my blender and cant even taste it, it blends perfectly. I do that about 3 times a day which is quite a lot but it works Im here to tell you.
