What is Karbo-lyn™?
Karbo-lyn™is a patented carbohydrate sourced from starch and contains very unique properties. It is a homopolysaccharide carbohydrate which means it is made up of many monosaccharide’s joined together by glycosidic bonds. Karbo-lyn™ passes through the stomach very quickly and it acts like a pump, pulling water and nutrients along with it.
Benefits of Karbo-lyn™
Karbolyn™ has a high osmolality and is completely sugar free. To create a fast absorption through the stomach, the molecular mass has been uniquely manipulated making it have an uptake much faster than dextrose or Maltodextrin but without the added bloating effect.
Who is Karbo-lyn™Suitable for?
Karbo-lyn™is ideal for anyone looking for a source of carbohydrates before or after their training or competition. It is also suitable for anyone looking for a non-sugar based carbohydrate prior to endurance or ultra-endurance based events or for recovery after resistance based exercise. Due to the fast uptake of Karbo-lyn™, it is recommended to consume this immediately following your exercise.
We recommend consuming 50g of Karbo-lyn™ either before, after or during your exercise. However, this will depend on your specific training goals and the type of exercise you are undertaking.
Carbohydrate loading: If you are wanting to use Karbo-lyn™ for a carbohydrate loading phase, we recommend to consume 1 serving (50g) with a high carbohydrate diet every 2-3 hours in the day leading up to your event.
Pre-race: We recommend consuming 1 serving of Karbo-lyn™ 2-3 hours prior to your race for optimal results.
Post-race: We recommend consuming 1 serving of Karbo-lyn™ immediately (<1hour) following your race. Take a following serving 2-3 hours following this alongside a high carbohydrate diet.
As a food supplement we recommend mixing 1 large scoop (50g) with 400-500ml of water or mix with your supplements. Consume this either pre or post your workout.
We also recommend consuming Karbo-lyn™ on recovery days or as a source of carbohydrate for carbohydrate loading strategies.

I have used other fast absorbing carb powders before but Karbolyn seems to far exceed any of them ( vitargo, waxy maize,cycle dextrin etc) I had amazing pumps and fullness all throughout the workout and allowed me to push far beyond my normal capabilities with other carb powders. I normally do not write reviews but I feel I had to for this one. I am also impressed with the price as I never did try Karbolyn before from other brands due to the price and my protein seem to have beaten their prices to make it more accessible.
