    GlycoMyx Feedback, Reviews, Questions


    A spot for anything and everything in relation to GlycoMyx. Got reviews, questions, baking recipes, anything related to the perfect purple carb product place them right here!

    So what are people saying about GlycoMyx?

It mixes fine into the shake and is an excellent source for slow release carbs. I felt it did an excellent job of replenishing glycogen and bringing life back to a tired man.

    Results: I am very carb sensitive and have battled carbs my entire life. My favorite aspect of glycemyx was that it did not hinder my goals at all like typical carbs do. This allowed me to increase my carb intake which in turn increased the quality of my workouts and overall energy. I ended up losing two lbs. on the scale but I am noticeably leaner and fuller.
    I will be buying more as soon as it is available.

    I recommend this product highly. I feel it's one of the best carb options out there.

Just two good carb sources without the artificial flavoring etc. Simple and effective. I've been mixing a scoop of Glycomyx with a couple scoops of protein powder and I'm g2g to the gym an hour later. Very convenient way to get your carbs in pre-workout. Also have used it as a meal replacement when I got nothing to eat haha. Very nice product to have.

    Effects of anthocyanins on cardiovascular risk factors and inflammation in pre-hypertensive men: a double-blind randomized placebo-controlled crossover study.

    Abstract

    High intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with reduced cardiovascular risk. A number of fruits and vegetables are rich in anthocyanins, which constitute a subgroup of the flavonoids. Anthocyanins have demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties, and anthocyanin-rich interventions have indicated beneficial effects on blood pressure and other cardiovascular risk factors. We assessed whether a purified anthocyanin supplement improves cardiovascular metabolic risk factors and markers of inflammation and oxidative stress in prehypertensive participants, and whether plasma polyphenols are increased 1-3 h following intake. In all, 31 men between 35-51 years with screening blood pressure >140/90 mm Hg without anti-hypertensive or lipid-lowering medication, were randomized in a double-blinded crossover study to placebo versus 640 mg anthocyanins daily. Treatment durations were 4 weeks with a 4-week washout. High-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol and blood glucose were significantly higher after anthocyanin versus placebo treatment (P=0.043 and P=0.024, respectively). No effects were observed on inflammation or oxidative stress in vivo, except for von Willebrand factor, which was higher in the anthocyanin period (P=0.007). Several plasma polyphenols increased significantly 1-3 h following anthocyanin intake. The present study strengthens the evidence that anthocyanins may increase HDL-cholesterol levels, and this is demonstrated for the first time in prehypertensive and non-dyslipidemic men. However, no other beneficial effects in the short term were found on pathophysiological markers of cardiovascular disease.Journal of Human Hypertension advance online publication, 16 February 2012; doi:10.1038/jhh.2012.4.

    Purple sweet potato color attenuates domoic acid-induced cognitive deficits by promoting estrogen receptor-α-mediated mitochondrial biogenesis signaling in mice.

    Abstract

    Recent findings suggest that endoplasmic reticulum stress may be involved in the pathogenesis of domoic acid-induced neurodegeneration. Purple sweet potato color, a class of naturally occurring anthocyanins, has beneficial health and biological effects. Recent studies have also shown that anthocyanins have estrogenic activity and can enhance estrogen receptor-α expression. In this study, we evaluated the effect of purple sweet potato color on cognitive deficits induced by hippocampal mitochondrial dysfunction in domoic acid-treated mice and explored the potential mechanisms underlying this effect. Our results showed that the oral administration of purple sweet potato color to domoic acid-treated mice significantly improved their behavioral performance in a step-through passive avoidance task and a Morris water maze task. These improvements were mediated, at least in part, by a stimulation of estrogen receptor-α-mediated mitochondrial biogenesis signaling and by decreases in the expression of p47phox and gp91phox. Decreases in reactive oxygen species and protein carbonylation were also observed, along with a blockade of the endoplasmic reticulum stress pathway. Furthermore, purple sweet potato color significantly suppressed endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced apoptosis, which prevented neuron loss and restored the expression of memory-related proteins. However, knockdown of estrogen receptor-α using short hairpin RNA only partially blocked the neuroprotective effects of purple sweet potato color in the hippocampus of mice cotreated with purple sweet potato color and domoic acid, indicating that purple sweet potato color acts through multiple pathways. These results suggest that purple sweet potato color could be a possible candidate for the prevention and treatment of cognitive deficits in excitotoxic and other brain disorders.

    Purple sweet potato color suppresses lipopolysaccharide-induced acute inflammatory response in mouse brain.

    Abstract

    The neuroprotective effects of purple sweet potato color (PSPC), which is natural anthocyanin food colors, have been investigated in mice treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS). In behavioral tests, oral administration of PSPC could significantly reverse the impairment of motor and exploration behavior induced by LPS in the open field tasks, and also improve learning and memory ability in step-through tests. Western blot analysis indicated that PSPC significantly suppressed LPS-induced cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and inducible nitric oxide synthases (iNOS) expression in mouse brain. PSPC also markedly decreased the overproduction of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in LPS-stimulated mouse brain. Mechanistically, PSPC strongly inhibited LPS-induced phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and phosphorylated c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) expression and nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) activation. Taken together, these data suggest that PSPC may be useful for mitigating inflammatory brain diseases by the inhibition of proinflammatory molecule production, at least in part, through blocking ERK, JNK and NF-kappaB signaling.

    Antioxidant and memory enhancing effects of purple sweet potato anthocyanin and cordyceps mushroom extract.

    Cho J, Kang JS, Long PH, Jing J, Back Y, Chung KS.

    College of Pharmacy, Chungnam National University, Daejeon 305-764, Korea.

    Abstract

    The effects of purple sweet potato anthocyanin (SPA) and Cordyceps mushroom extract (CME) on lipid peroxidation, 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radicals and cognitive deficits were examined. Both SPA and CME exhibited DPPH radical scavenging activities with similar potency. In contrast, only SPA was shown to effectively inhibit lipid peroxidation initiated by Fe2+ and ascorbic acid in rat brain homogenates. Furthermore, SPA markedly enhanced cognitive performance, assessed by passive avoidance test in ethanol-treated mice. Combined treatments with SPA and CME did not significantly influence the effects of SPA alone. These results demonstrate that anthocyanin prepared from purple sweet potato exhibits memory enhancing effects, which may be associated with its antioxidant properties.

    I'm very carb sensitive and it's allowed me to take in more carbs without blowing up and getting puffy and flabby. Great carb source!

    Awesome to hear, man.

    I keep hearing about XF and still haven't tried it, as I've stockpiled so much protein lol. I may have to break my rule of using what I have and pick some up, though.

    Once I polish off the rest of my tub through various uses I will post one.

    PS drank some Glycomyx and CR Ultra Peptide as I drove to see The Dark Knight Rises in true IMAX. Bane was beyond diesel and it was an insanely epic movie....

    I'm a uber Batman geek and I absolutely loved this one. The first time you see Bane with his shirt off there he just looks like an absolute monster of a man. Loved every minute of it and I'll miss Nolan on Batman, but what a trilogy

    If you mix it with chocolate egg protein, it tastes kind of like Coco Wheats hot cereal.

    Almost everyone who has tried it has grabbed another tub, I'd say that speaks volumes about its effectiveness!

    Sorry for the delay but finally got some time to type up the review:

    GlycoMyx Review:


    Taste: Having used a ton of ground oats in the past I found their taste/texture/mouth feel very apparent upon the use of this in any shake. Personally I never disliked this and actually tend to find it adds nice subtle additions to most shakes. Those same attributes can be found in GlycoMyx as well as an additional taste that is hard to describe for me. Overall it isn't a bad taste and not overpowering. If the shake has a strong enough base (protein powder, etc) it easily overpowers the taste of GlycoMyx. I mixed this stuff with tons of different flavors and found vanilla proteins did the least in terms of overpowering GlycoMyx, but I found XF CR to be incredible with this stuff.

    Texture: As noted above there is an additional texture when using this in a shake. Personally I like my shakes to have a good thickness and consistency so I found this a bonus. I did note that I had to use more water than usual for any shake with even a half a scoop or it could get really thick and a little hard to mix. Even just a little extra water alleviated this issue making it not much of a factor other than keeping me even more hydrated.

    Effects:

    -Satiety: I found this to be a very effective meal replacement addition. Most of my shakes have decent amount of fats and protein but getting in some quality CHO on the run can be hard with my busy schedule. Tossing some Glyco in there was easy and efficient. Felt it held me over pretty easily and actually sat in my stomach and made me feel full very effectively compared to most shakes.

    -Fullness/Vascularity: This one was probably the most surprising. I am not CHO phobic and don't lack CHO around training so I know how most effect me in terms of vascularity and pump, but this stuff surprised me. One of my most common combos was XF CR + 1/2 serving GlycoMyx + Milk about 1-2 hours pre depending on the day. This stuff added an additional benefit in terms of muscle fullness and vascularity. I experimented and tried the same exact amount of CHO in just plain oatmeal instead of GlycoMyx with the same exact meal and noted a lower level of fullness/vascularity. Honestly couldn't believe this, but couldn't discount it after several trials like this. Also noted increased vascularity post-workout when this was added to my post-workout shakes. Kinda crazy to be honest.

    -Endurance/Recovery: Noted some increases here, but didn't notice anything over and above what most CHO dosed in the same fashion typically result in for myself.

    Overall:
    Like with my protein I prefer to eat it rather than supplement a powder into my diet, but I will still pick more of this up in the future. Will use mostly as a MRP addition and to add to pre and post-workout dosings as I see fit. Nothing crazy (other than the noted veins that pop when dosing this for me), but it is a CHO source so expectations weren't very high. Cost is not cheap, but I tend to buy more expensive proteins and use sparingly and that is exactly how I will look at GlycoMyx in the future. Quality CHO source that may have health benefits and is not just empty additional calories IMO, and recommend if looking to add a powdered CHO source to your diet.

Those same attributes can be found in GlycoMyx as well as an additional taste that is hard to describe for me. Overall it isn't a bad taste and not overpowering. If the shake has a strong enough base (protein powder, etc) it easily overpowers the taste of GlycoMyx. I mixed this stuff with tons of different flavors and found vanilla proteins did the least in terms of overpowering GlycoMyx, but I found XF CR to be incredible with this stuff.

    Texture: As noted above there is an additional texture when using this in a shake. Personally I like my shakes to have a good thickness and consistency so I found this a bonus. I did note that I had to use more water than usual for any shake with even a half a scoop or it could get really thick and a little hard to mix. Even just a little extra water alleviated this issue making it not much of a factor other than keeping me even more hydrated.

    Effects:

    -Satiety: I found this to be a very effective meal replacement addition. Most of my shakes have decent amount of fats and protein but getting in some quality CHO on the run can be hard with my busy schedule. Tossing some Glyco in there was easy and efficient. Felt it held me over pretty easily and actually sat in my stomach and made me feel full very effectively compared to most shakes.

    -Fullness/Vascularity: This one was probably the most surprising. I am not CHO phobic and don't lack CHO around training so I know how most effect me in terms of vascularity and pump, but this stuff surprised me. One of my most common combos was XF CR + 1/2 serving GlycoMyx + Milk about 1-2 hours pre depending on the day. This stuff added an additional benefit in terms of muscle fullness and vascularity. I experimented and tried the same exact amount of CHO in just plain oatmeal instead of GlycoMyx with the same exact meal and noted a lower level of fullness/vascularity. Honestly couldn't believe this, but couldn't discount it after several trials like this. Also noted increased vascularity post-workout when this was added to my post-workout shakes. Kinda crazy to be honest.

    -Endurance/Recovery: Noted some increases here, but didn't notice anything over and above what most CHO dosed in the same fashion typically result in for myself.

    Overall:
    Like with my protein I prefer to eat it rather than supplement a powder into my diet, but I will still pick more of this up in the future. Will use mostly as a MRP addition and to add to pre and post-workout dosings as I see fit. Nothing crazy (other than the noted veins that pop when dosing this for me), but it is a CHO source so expectations weren't very high. Cost is not cheap, but I tend to buy more expensive proteins and use sparingly and that is exactly how I will look at GlycoMyx in the future. Quality CHO source that may have health benefits and is not just empty additional calories IMO, and recommend if looking to add a powdered CHO source to your diet.

    Another solid review. Thank you so much.

    Just thought I'd pop in to say I used Glyco again today after not using some for awhile. Veins were crazy again! Anabeta + GlycoMyx is a crazy combo.

    Today's shake was 1 scoop IForce RVC Protean + 1 scoop Dymatize Vanilla Iso-100 + 6oz Coconut Milk and .5 scoop GlycoMyx. Was very tasty and filled me up pretty good.

    Also have another tub on the way and posted my review in the official review section.

    Sweet action. I just started Ultimate Diet 2.0 and am using GlycoMyx on my carb up days and pre-workout on high-normal carb days.

    Sounds like a great combo IMO. I really like UD 2.0 but it hasn't fit with anything I have been doing lately, but I feel using Glycomyx on a carb up would definitely be something I will do when I use UD again.

    You're a lot leaner than I am currently. I looked similar to you (smaller though) many moons ago and am trying to get back there. I'll have a super log coming up where I'm running every Southland product so we will see if I can get shredded with the help of those and UD 2.0 (I like it as well, been a long time since I've done it but always gets me results!)

    I didn't even think about the combo of GlycoMyx and Anabeta...that really does sound awesome based on all the observations of how carbs are utilized by AB.

    For those who haven't got on the GlycoMyx bandwagon yet, the combo deal with Slintensity is at an outrageous price of under 30 dollars. Make sure you provide some feedback here if you jump on the stack!

    Where does GlycoMyx fit in the spectrum of carbs as far as things like dextrose, plain oats, pasta, etc.

    * Ideal for Pre-Workout, Post-Workout and Meal Replacement Shakes!
    * Quickly Delivers Nutrients to the Muscles Without a Large Insulin Response!


    Those 2 sentences together kind of confuse my little brain...

    It's just a really solid choice for carbs. Purple Sweet Potato Powder has a myriad of health benefits with more and more studies touting its benefits rolling in all the time. Seems like every other day Dsade is throwing a new study out showing cool effects from the stuff. It's a gluten free carb source that isn't going to jack up insulin levels to ridiculous rates.

    The pre-workout, post-workout, MRP stuff is just showing the diversity of the product. Want to take in some carbs pre workout (this is when I use it largely) and get a better pump? GlycoMyx can help there. Want to start replenishing glycogen or get a healthy carb source in? Use is as an MRP or post-workout when you want some extra carbs.

    Right now on UD 2.0 I use it pre-workout (half a scoop) on my carb days and then use it as an MRP as a healthy carb source for carb ups.

    Hope that helps, let me know if you have any more questions.

    So how would you implement it on a TKD with slin tinsity?

    I was thinking

    45min pre workout 1 cap slin
    25min pre take 1/2 scoop glyco with my pre-workout
    sip on 1/2 scoop with my 25grWMS/10gr peptapro intra workout.

    I think it's a solid plan :-D
