    If you want to add carbs to your diet this is the way to go, especially at this price! It’s pure maltodextrin, you can use this as part of a homemade weight gainer or mix it up with your pre workout for longer lasting energy, or use it with your post workout. This is a great product at a great price.

    I was looking for a complex carb that I could use to get me through 2 hour BJJ classes. I started noticing that I was losing weight and becoming fatigued about halfway through my workouts. I had no idea that I was far from consuming enough carbs for the amount of cardio that I was doing. It’s now been a month since starting NOW Carbogain, and I’ve put about 5 lbs back on and now make it through rolling sessions no problem. This is, in fact, 100% Maltodextrin, so it bonds to water molecules while mixing. I’ve started adding this to my protein shakes pre and post workout. Carbo Gain is also cheap as hell.

    I found that I need a minimum amount of fluid (water) to prevent this product from clumping really bad. Once you get enough fluid though it mixes in very well. You have to balance the amount it needs with amount that doesn’t thin out the flavor of whatever else your mixing though (ie protein).
