Pure Karbolyn was invented for the sole purpose of carbohydrate loading. It was designed for elite Athletes looking for a fast, safe and high performance way to easily load the muscle with accessible muscle energy (glycogen). Karbolyn has been instantized, so it mixes instantly. The secret is all in the processing. Be careful. If your product looks like a "powdery", cheap, unprocessed corn starch (that you can buy at the grocery store) it probably is. Native, unprocessed starch is not going to give you the rapid absorbing, glycogen loading results you are looking for. Here is why: Whey protein, for example, is only 12 % protein in content and full of fat and lactose before it is processed. The highest quality of Hydrolyzed whey Protein Isolate available has gone through a ton of processing to remove fat, lactose and other whey components to yield a very nice amino acid profile. As you may already know, the extensive (and expensive) processing of whey protein is the reason why Hydrolyzed Whey Protein is the fastest absorbing protein and perfect for building muscle. The very unique, compounded, patent pending processing of Pure Karbolyn is the reason why it is rapidly absorbed, non-bloating and ideal for muscle glycogen loading. Don't waste your time and money on unprocessed starches. Consuming unprocessed starch is like taking cheap non-effective protein that does nothing for building muscle. Cheap is not what you want when it comes to your body, health and workouts. Plain and simple the best thing you can do you can do before, during and after your workouts is drink high quality Pure Karbolyn. Pure Karbolyn is designed to get the carbs and nutrients through the stomach and in the muscle, where they belong.
