What is Waxy Maize Starch (WMS)?
Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) is one of the most recent carbohydrate sources to hit the market and has become popular with athletes due to it low osmolality which means it is absorbed extremely quickly, delivering nutrients faster for glycogen replenishment, increasing performance and recovery rates.
What are the Benefits of Waxy Maize Starch (WMS)?
Waxy maize is free of sugar and lactose and is considered a superior carbohydrate source to dextrose and maltodextrin as it passes through the stomach 80% quicker than dextrose, restoring glycogen 70% faster. Our Waxy Maize Starch has a high percentage of Amylopectin (96%) which are larger, heavier molecules making it easier for the stomach to digest, increasing the absorption rate resulting in only a very short time period in the stomach and as a result does not cause stomach discomfort.
Waxy maize acts like a pump, pulling nutrients and water into the muscle tissue at the correct speed and osmolality ensuring full utilisation, as a result performance increases may be noticed as well as enhanced muscle pumps when used pre/intra workout.
Who is Waxy Maize Starch (WMS) Suitable for?
Waxy Maize is suitable for anyone who is physically active and wants to increase their energy levels, in particularly endurance athletes where WMS would help fuel training and events. Alternatively, Waxy Maize can be used effectively by strength athletes and bodybuilders to replenish glycogen levels, improve muscular endurance and increase muscle pumps.
