Now Foods Carbo Gain 8 lbs
Now Foods Carbo Gain is a complex carbohydrate supplement that contains an easily digestible blend of complex carbohydrates from corn starch. This pure complex carb supplement is derived from maltodextrin. Maltodextrin contains "glucose polymers", linked sugar compounds that are easy for the body to assimilate and use. Glucose polymers are metabolized as a slow, steady rate that can help to sustain energy levels during endurance-oriented workouts and/or athletic events and support weight gain.
- 100% Pure Maltodextrin
- Free of: salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk or preservatives.
- Fuel for muscles for intense exercise and training
Mix a 1/2 cup of Carbo Gain in each 16 oz. of water or juice. Consume before, during and after intense exercise for best results. Double this recipe if engaging in prolonged exertion of 2 hours or more.

Was coming up about 50-60 short of my 500 gram carb total daily and instead of investing in a mass gainer grabbed Carbo Gain to throw into smoothies and protein shakes. mixes well depending on the water to malto ratio. I haven't tried just downing it with water, i can't imagine it would be pleasant but may not be awful. If you are in the same situation I was with meeting carb requirements I'd definitely pick this up. I only use about half a cup each time but one could use quite a bit more.
For Extra Carbs
If your looking for a way to get extra calories or carbs into your diet for a bulk then Carbo Gain is great product. Very reasonably priced and great for adding to a post-workout shake! I add anywhere from 40-80grams into my PW shakes depending on current diet macros I'm trying to meet.
