Waxy Maize by NOW is a complex carbohydrate from Non-GMO corn that is high in amylopectin. Amylopectin is a highly branched, high molecular weight polysaccharide. NOW Waxy Maize typically contains 90% amylopectin, most corn starch products contains 70-75% amylopectin. Amylopectin is absorbed more slowly and is used more easily by muscle tissue, where it is converted into glycogen. Glycogen provides an extended source of glucose to meet the body's energy needs. Waxy Maize promotes glycogen re-synthesis long after training and helps maintain energy levels throughout the day, unlike dextrose or maltodextrin.
