Glycomaize Overview

Of course you need protein to fuel muscle building, but intense workouts require a lot of energy also. Optimum Nutrition Glycomaize is designed to give you both immediate and sustaining energy. Waxy maize starch is the fuel that gets you started, very energy-dense and easy for your body to absorb. For energy that lasts through your whole workout, Glycomaize provides trehalose. It's a sugar compound that is absorbed more slowly than waxy maize starch, so it keeps you going when the initial boost runs out.

Unlike other energy boosters, this is intended for you to use as often as you workout and in large amounts if necessary. To make it even easier to utilize and digest, Carbogen enzymes are included, preventing uncomfortable bloating and cramping. Glycomaize is unflavored, making it easy to add to your normal protein, weight-gainer or other workout drinks. Make sure you have the energy you need to build the muscle you want by using Glycomaize.

Glycomaize Description from Optimum Nutrition

Whereas proteins help with muscle rebuilding, carbs refuel and replenish. Of the various types available, Waxy Maize Starch and Trehalose are two of the best. Waxy maize starches are long-chain, highly-branched, exceptionally-dense complex carbohydrates that are rapidly absorbed. Trehalose is a much smaller, slower-digesting molecule comprised of two unusually linked glucose sugars. Together, these carbohydrates provide immediate and intermediate energy, top-off glycogen stores, and aid with nutrient absorption. That’s why they’re the foundation of our GLYCOMAIZE formula. Unlike other high-carbohydrate formulas that you may have used in the past, GLYCOMAIZE is designed to be used often and in greater amounts. Added Carbogen enzymes help ensure fast, easy digestion without bloating or cramping. So, when you’re ready to power-up your pre-, during- & post-workout drinks and shakes to meet the intensity of your sports, you’re ready for GLYCOMAIZE.

Beyond the Basics:

-35 grams of concentrated carbohydrates per scoop
-Packed with fast-acting, high-molecular weight Waxy Maize Starch
-Trehalose for intermediate energy
-Contains Carbogen digestive enzymes to enhance utilization

SHAKE-UP YOUR PROTEIN SHAKE: Enhance your pre-and post-workout protein, weight-gainer, or meal replacement shakes with one or more scoops of GLYCOMAIZE. STACK YOUR CARBS: Make GLYCOMAIZE an even more powerful post-workout recovery product by adding creatine, arginine, glutamine, BCAAs, and other strength and recovery supplements.

quick and sustained energy/ does not dissolve well

This product is very versatile, as ON's description suggests. I mix 1/2 - 1 scoop with creatine, free form aminos, and whey protein. Generally, it results in a creamier, better tasting shake. As the name suggests, the main point here is maintaining glycogen stores to sustain activity. The real downside of this product is that it is messy and does not really dissolve (you get a suspension, not a solution). But the inherent messiness can be reduced with care, and shaking your bottle will re-suspend the product in the liquid. Do NOT use in a CamelBak style bladder.
