Description
Complex carbohydrate powder
PhD Waxy-Vol contains pure barley powder and is derived from finest UK crop. Barley is recognised as a complex carbohydrate.

A carbohydrate is the most abundant natural organic compound that consists only of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, they occur naturally in a variety of foods. In simplistic terms and in food science, carbohydrates can be broken down into two forms (though in truth it is slightly more comprehensive than this) and these are: simple sugars and complex carbohydrates.

Complex carbohydrates is a term used to describe foods that are high in starch (cereal’s, breads, grains), whilst the term simple sugars is used to describe foods that are traditionally high in monosaccharides and disaccharides, which are smaller (lower molecular weight) and are found in sweets, fruits, fruit juices etc.

Traditionally, athletes will require the majority of their carbohydrate intake from complex carbohydrates (starches), except perhaps for a period of 1 hour after exercise when it may be preferential to use simple sugars, as they may be converted into glycogen quicker than starches.

"Good product to use to refuel after workout, I m 54 and workout for 2-3hours a session and this powers me until I can get a proper meal afterwards, I use the product on its own ,as I feel that mixing it pushes the cost up and does necessarly benefit, have tried the unflavored one and its a bit bland"

"I also bought the unflavoured one and I have to agree that it doesn't taste great."

"I have to say that the effects of this are really good. I have the unflavoured one though and it tastes like bitter flour. Next time I will get flavoured and match my protein flavour to it."

Q&A
Q can i add this to my post-workout protein shake, and mix the protein and carbs together?
A

Yes, that is highly recommended. Read the article - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/171 - for the best advice on Post-Workout supplementation.

Q Can you mix your whey protein and creatine to this product post training? Or should you take the creatine before your protein and carb shake?
A

Yep - highly recommended that you mix the three most important post-workout nutrients (protein, creatine & carbs) together. You'll effectively be making your own post-workout shake and carbs plus protein have been shown to increase the amount of creatine retained by the muscle.
