NOW® Carbo Gain is a 100% pure complex carbohydrate supplement derived from maltodextrin, an easily digestible blend of complex carbohydrates 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 normal energy levels during endurance-oriented workouts and/or athletic events and support weight gain.*

I am a throat cancer survivor that is now restricted to a liquid diet. Carbo Gain is the best way to keep an active guy like me going. My biggest problem is lack of enough calories...Carbo Gain adds healthy calories. Mark W. ACPT

When I take this before a workout it seems like my energy levels stay consistent more so than when I dont take this.

This product is awesome. I have the ability to add quality carbs to my intra or post-workout shakes. Mixes well with protein powders and aminos. Since I started using this product I have noticed better recovery time and one 8lb tub last 2+ months (training 4 days a week).

This product helps me specifically address my complex carbs needs, for workout sustainability. I use pre-workout nitric oxide, and still hit energy lows, during workout. So, with Carbo Gain, I am able to load up on the carbs I need to push through the increasingly intense workouts I am engaging in, in my attempt to reach 250lbs of body weight. Excellent product for this goal.

Great product. I like the ability to be able to add the amount of carbs that I need to my post workout drink so this is a great fix for that! Great price and easy mixability. I feel it does truely have no flavor and no granular consistency!!

Simple and effective - it's why I love Caro Gain. Carbo gain is unflavored, but adds a nice milky flavor to my protein shake. I think it pairs very well with any vanilla protein powder. I like using Carbo Gain per and post workout, If you're looking for a way to add a lot of carbohydrates into your diet you should certainly give it a try!

Pretty good, not the cleanest carb in the world but right after a workout on my way to work it does the trick

Great carb. Simple, nothing to it, just like you want. Mixes up with protein in a blender bottle. Tastes like nothing. I use it in my pre shake, post shake, and sometimes I'll even mix it in my BCAA drink for during workouts. A great simple carb, everything you want, nothing you don't. Used it for at least a year and a half now, one of my go-to supplements.

This product has worked very well for me. I've been able to gain a solid amount of muscle by adding 1/3 of a cup to my pre and post workout protein shakes. When it says unflavored, it really means unflavored.

cant vouche for the effects yet, but just got it the other day. the 12 lb bag is huge, will last awhile. the first use i did the recommended 2/3 cup blus a scoop of protein powder. my shaker bottle was half full with powder.. the carbo gain has a very sweet taste. today im going to break it up and do just 1/3 cup with a scoop of protein powder and the first one i had tasted much better. hopefully this can help me gain some weight going into my first season playing football, currently 16, 6'1'', and 155 lbs
