Total Carbohydrates - 22g

We use real food sources in Real Carbs because of the health benefits they provide. That’s something those other carb powders don’t do.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a bodybuilding standard. That’s because they have a good nutrient profile, and taste delicious. The glycemic rating is a little high at 70, but that makes them ideal for post-workout use. Sweet Potatoes also contain vitamin A, vitamin C, and several B vitamins. Plus, they provide calcium and potassium. Also, they provide fiber and add sweetness to the 5% Nutrition Real Carbs formula.


Rolled oats are another bodybuilding standard. The reason is they are a low-glycemic carbohydrate that’s high in minerals and fiber.

Wild Yams

You may think Yams and Sweet Potatoes are the same. They are similar but there are key differences. Wild Yams aren’t quite as sweet and have fewer nutrients. Still, Yams are a good source of vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium. Plus, they have a much lower glycemic rating (55 to 70).

Blueberry Fruit Powder

Blueberries are one of the more nutritious fruits available. They are a good source of antioxidants with high concentrations of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, and fiber. The health benefits of blueberries are because of a flavonoid group known as anthocyanins.
