CarboMax is a source of pure complex carbohydrates made from LCPF-50 (long-chain polymetric fraction) maltodextrin for quick and sustained energy. CarboMax contains complex glucose polymers that are metabolized at a slow, steady rate in a time released fashion making it the smartest choice for athletes who want to increase muscle endurance and mass without the complications of simple sugars. CarboMax can be used for pre-workout energy, post workout recovery, carb loading, or can be added to your favorite protein to create the perfect MRP to your own specifications.
CarboMax is an energy drink for athletes and exercise enthusiasts which contain both long and branched chain carbohydrates. Scientific research as far back as the late 1970s indicates that the digestion of long and branched chain carbohydrates is extremely efficient. In fact, there is evidence that absorption becomes more efficient as chain length and branching increase.
CarboMax contains the highest percentage of long and branched chain carbohydrates, more than any other carb drink. CarboMax gives you quick, consistent energy when you need it, with no unnecessary fat, protein or fiber. It won't leave you feeling sluggish and full when you need to feel light and energized. CarboMax is smooth and mixes easily, with no oily or bitter aftertaste. You can drink CarboMax before and throughout workouts, to replenish fluids and energy.
CarboMax is a 100% pure complex carbohydrate supplement derived from a specialized high-polymerization maltodextrin, an easily digestible complex carbohydrate 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. CarboMax is a convenient source of energy for professional athletes and active individuals.
CarboMax is not the standard low-polymerization maltodextrin sold by most companies. These cheaper maltodextrins are made from corn starch that has been so heavily processed that it barely qualifies as a complex carbohydrate. They are broken down so quickly that they virtually act like simple sugar. CarboMax contains: 3.5% mono and disaccharides, just enough for immediate energy requirements without any excess conversion to fat, 34% oligosaccharides, or medium chain carbs designed for glycogen replenishment and mid-term energy needs, and over 62% long chain polysaccharides that are slowly broken down to glucose of the next 2 hours to supply the body with a controlled, time released, continuous source of energy.
