PVL Essentials Waxy Maize Details

  • More Efficient & Powerful Carbo Powder
  • Sugar Free Athlete Fuel
  • Accelerates Nutrient Delivery
  • Improves Muscle Hydration

The sugar free athlete fuel - Waxy Maize is a special long branching chain complex carb. Complex carbs at their molecular level, are made up of chains of glucose, linked together. Typical complex carb powders have short chains, typically only about 20-100 glucose units long, all in a single line, like a train (these are called “amylose”). Waxy Maize carbs though are super complex (called “amylopectin”), having hundreds of thousands of glucose molecules, in chains that fork and branch – and their molecular structure looks more like 1,000,000-10,000,000 trains all in wreck. It is that “branching” structure that gives Waxy Maize extremely unique advantages over old school complex carbs. Waxy Maize has a molecular structure that is over 10,000 times larger than dextrose or maltodextrin.

What Does PVL Essentials Waxy Maize Do?

Amylopectins (as found in Waxy Maize based carbs) first gained notoriety in Europe, especially in professional cycling at first. For all athletes, there is no denying that Waxy Maize does offer a cleaner fuel source for working muscles, provides energy, delays fatigue and is terrific for carb loading and glycogen reloading; it also has faster gastric clearing rates, for less potential stomach upset during performance.

Cyclists in the Tour de France used Waxy Maize to super glycogen load – it worked so well that use of waxy maize was widespread in the inner circles of European professional cycling – this was the time before EPO and blood doping came along. The pros also noted that their body temperatures did not seem to overheat as much. This is easy to understand since the long multiple branch chains of waxy maize do not cause unwanted absorption issues, keeping the flow of carbs from the stomach to the muscles (where they are stored as glycogen) at a steady pace – this keeps the caloric expenditure in check, and thus the body temperature does not seem to spike. The cyclists also found they felt stronger and had deeper fuel reserves, did not feel “heavy” or bloated, and felt hydration was not only not compromised, but slightly benefited – this is also realized with athletics of all types.

Due to Waxy Maize’s impressive superior glycogen (fuel) loading attributes, then weight trainers and bodybuilders started to play with it, in an effort to pump up muscle size and volume. They quickly found that when adding other nutrients (eg; creatine, arginine, glutamine, BCAAs, whey protein) to their waxy maize, that the effect of the creatine for example, became more pronounced. While some credit this to typical blood sugar level manipulation from ingesting carbs, it is more readily explained that because of the giant molecular structure of Waxy Maize, it has often been described that its ability to “pull” other nutrients along with it, is just like how a giant ocean cruise ship has a large “pulling” effect that builds up behind it as it cruises, and that anything caught behind in its immediate wake, gets pulled along with it. Multiple studies show waxy maize has this unique structure and high molecular weight, and the effects and benefits for this nutrient continue to grow.
