Waxy Maize

Waxy maize is a waxy corn starch, which is a carbohydrate dietary supplement. The preparation can quickly replenish glycogen stores in the muscles and positively affect their regeneration after physical exercise.

In addition, due to its specific structure and molecular mass, waxy corn starch does not remain in the stomach, but can almost immediately provide a solid portion of energy to the body.

Waxy maize - what is it?

Waxy maize is a carbohydrate dietary supplement, the basis of which is waxy corn starch.

Starch, in turn, is a sugar that consists of two chemical organic compounds, namely amylose and amylopectin.

Amylose is a polysaccharide, which forms simple chains, while amylopectin is a branched compound with a high molecular weight, which is distinguished by specific properties, i.a. is responsible for the swelling effect of starch and for its ability to form sols.

Branched chains of amylopectin are distinguished by their high availability for digestive enzymes and thus the corn starch waxy maize can be characterized by rapid digestion. Additionally, because the molecular weight of cornstarch is greater than other carbohydrates, waxy maize can leave the stomach faster and enter the bloodstream, providing a valuable source of energy.

Waxy maize - effects

Waxy corn starch can be an immediate source of energy. A dietary supplement can replenish muscle glycogen faster than dextrose or maltodextrin and thus may reduce the risk of flatulence and eliminate the feeling of discomfort in the stomach.

In addition, corn starch is distinguished by a low glycemic index and does not contribute to sudden insulin spikes. Waxy maize can therefore provide stable energy levels for many hours, providing "fuel" for both the muscles and the brain.

The conditioner can support muscle anabolism, provide a fast rate of glycogen reconstruction and promote regeneration after intense physical exercise. At the same time, a dietary supplement can provide a feeling of satiety for a long time, and thus can sometimes be used as a meal replacement.

Interestingly, cornstarch can also accelerate the absorption of other ingredients, e.g. creatine.

Waxy maize - for whom?

Waxy corn starch is a high-quality carbohydrate preparation, which is recommended especially among athletes of endurance and strength disciplines - it can have a positive effect on the rate of glycogen renewal in the muscles and be a source of fast energy necessary for their work and proper functioning. At the same time, waxy maize can promote the growth of muscle mass and strength.

Corn starch is most often used as a post-workout conditioner, because it can provide the body with a portion of carbohydrates that are absorbed gradually, and thus can support muscle regeneration after exercise, support glycogen reconstruction and provide the right amount of energy.
