Favorite Supplemental Carb Source.
With all the controversy of different carb sources especially new ones, lets see what everyones favorite carb source in supplement form is. Post what you use the carb source for, and why you like it.
Personally I like to mix wms and gatorade for pre and during workout because it helps maintain my energy levels. I am a big fan of kre celerator because of its carb source as well. Both give me sustained energy and good pumps.

Waxy Maize (any brand) for the win! Less bloat and not so heavy in your stomach post workout... plus its better to have anytime of the day than dextrose

If I was paying for something special, I would go with vitargo.
I just use gatorade powder with bcaa's intra, and chocolate milk PWO (at least for now).

I'll ask again as my question as yet to be answered by those advocate/sell WMS: is there any conclusive evidence substantiating the efficacy of WMS? i come across a lot of controversial evidence when it comes to WMS and that's unfortunately why i haven't purchased it yet.

In essence, WMS = all hype and it actually isn't a fast-digesting carb as many believe.

With whey was no good. Gave me some bloating but i tried a few t-spoons with Purple Wraath and thought it was quite good as an intra workout drink.
I should mention i train first thing in the morning on an empty stomach so i need something easy digesting and WMS seems to fit the bill.
I think it defeats the purpose having it with anything else other than BCAA's or EAA's which also digest quick, much quicker than whey.
Another drink i like is whey and gatorade but the WMS and AA's absorb much, much faster.

There's a lot of misconception with this WMS situation. It actually came about due to studies using Swedish POTATO starch. That's the supplement industry for you though. Preying off the minds off those looking for the "next new best supplement."

slow digestingConsumption of the slow-digesting waxy maize starch leads to blunted plasma glucose and insulin response but does not influence energy expenditure or appetite in humans.
what more do you want? Its nothing it was sold to be, in fact it is the opposite.

So far complex carbs are in the lead.
There is so much controversy over wms, finding evidence both ways seems easy to find.

Really oats are so versatile breakfast, shakes and biscuits I never looked any further. There are a few commerical super low GI carbs but oats take some beating.
I use Glycogrow - super low GI - but that is really a fat.
