Waxy Maize Overview
Now Waxy Maize contains pure non-GMO waxy maize derived from corn. It’s naturally high in amylopectin, a high molecular weight polysaccharide that is a slow-absorbing carbohydrate with a high affinity for muscle cell uptake. Waxy Maize is typically taken by elite bodybuilders and athletes who are looking to gain lean muscle mass by optimizing glycogen replenishment in muscle cells. Waxy Maize is also a favorite supplement of hard gainers who have trouble eating enough calories to gain quality size. It’s a better alternative to lower-quality maltodextrin blends and can help bodybuilders pack on lean weight instead of dirty mass weight. If you’re looking to pack on quality dense lean muscle, pick up a bottle of Now Waxy Maize and give your muscles exactly what they need to repair and grow.
Waxy Maize Description from Now
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.
