Thanks for the insight. I'm going to replace the Cyto Sport with Maltodextrin. That being said, I'll keep an open ear if someone has the research showing why spendding the $$$ for a fancy carb powder would be worth it.
Got a question pertaining to this subject... is waxy maize all that better then dextrose or maltodextrin. Right now I just use gatorade powder, but I know the others are cheaper. I searched on here and other websites, and some say it's all the same, others claim WM just shits on everything else... So Bonez, and anyone else, does it matter at all? I mean they all nearly cost the same, I'm just wondering more is one less heavy on the stomach or something? Why is WM seen as 'superior' to many??
I still use waxy maize around workout time instead of other carb powders (I buy in bulk, same with every other carb/fiber, protein powder and supp I use)... But tbh, I can't tell much of a difference... I do it out of habit more than anything else now.
I think dextrose would only be used to spike insulin? then you would have to have other carb sources to refill glyc stores?
From what i've read waxy maize is suppose to be a better powdered carb source than malto. I've never used waxy maize due to its name. (waxy maize) so I don't have a personal opinion. I seen a few brothers post about using it before so i think It would be worth a try. Better than gatorade post workout.
I just use the gatorade mixed with whey during my workout. I'm just looking for something cheap, not heavy on your stomach, and comes in orange flavor. lol. I've tried kool-aid as well, but I know it being fructose or whatever, isn't the best carb source...
So I said I would take you guys up on the dextrose and maltodextrin advice but then went in a different direction. My bad.
I came across a carb powder called Vitargo S2. The research looked good. It's pricey but workout supplements are pretty much my only luxury expense so I went for it. I'll post an update soon re: whether I've experienced any benefit.
