NOW® Carbo Gain is pure maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate
derived from corn. Maltodextrin is comprised of "glucose polymers,"
which are chains of glucose molecules that are easy for the body to digest and
assimilate. Maltodextrin can help to sustain energy levels during endurance
exercise by enhancing muscular energy stores. Furthermore, maltodextrin use
during exercise can help the body cope with the biological stress produced by
intense training, thereby supporting the post-workout recovery process.
Gain represents a convenient way to fuel your body with the quick, but
sustaining energy it needs during intense physical activity.
