Product Summary

Now Waxy Maize Powder is a non-GMO corn-based carbohydrate supplement meant to aid with muscle energy and recovery. Now recommends mixing one scoop in 16 ounces of water. If you are going to exercise for longer than 2 hours, they recommend doubling the amount.

Waxy Maize is a complex starch from non-GMO corn that is 90% amylopectin. Amylopectin is a high-molecular-weight protein which is slowly absorbed. This is easily incorporated by the muscles and converted into glycogen. This supplement is both Informed Sport-certified and steroid tested, so it is likely safe for elite athletes who undergo drug testing for their sport.

Reviews of Waxy Maize are mixed. Customers liked that it provided long lasting energy for their workouts. Complaints included that the product tasted bad and mixed poorly. Some people also received containers without a scooper.
