Post-Workout GLYCOMAIZE(TM) To Refuel Exhausted Muscles

AURORA, Illinois, December 17th – After weight training or intense aerobic exercise, when your body’s supply of glycogen has been burned to fuel your muscles, quality carbohydrates can replenish those glycogen stores and play a key role in post-workout recovery. Optimum Nutrition’s (ON) new GLYCOMAIZE™ carbohydrate matrix combines rapidly-absorbing waxy maize starch with slower-digesting trehalose to provide both immediate and intermediate energy. Patented Carbogen® digestive enzymes complete the picture by enhancing utilization.

“Quality proteins are ideal for muscle rebuilding,” said Rachel Hopkins, ON food scientist. “But to refuel muscle glycogen, your body needs carbohydrates. Waxy maize starches are exceptionally dense long-chain complex carbs that digest rapidly, and can be consumed often and in large amounts without bloating or cramping. Trehalose provides lasting stamina that takes away the sugar crash.”
Because GLYCOMAIZE™ is instantized in unflavored powder, it can be mixed up easily in your beverage of choice and is ideal for stacking with virtually any pre-, during, or post-workout shake or drink.

Founded in 1987, Optimum Nutrition is a leading manufacturer of premium nutritional supplements. Recognized for quality and innovation, the company maintains two distinct brands – Optimum Nutrition and American Body Building – each offering a comprehensive product line.
