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®
Karbo-Lyn®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.

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.
Heard about this from Niko Chaprales (Powerlifter) I gave it 5 stars for taste because it is essentially flavorless and therefore super easy to down. It mixes completely too, no issues there. Drinking this 30-40 minutes pre-workout has been keeping me fueled and it really is without bloating (other than the amount of liquid used to mix perhaps). It's quite convenient vs oats because I dont always have the time to cook oats, clean up and then allow them to digest properly. I can't say much about the post workout benefits because I haven't been using it for that long. I combine it with a protein powder after the gym for a fast digesting gainz cocktail. Together they definitely speed up reparation and I can see the growth. Also 200 calories per serving is a blessing when trying to sneak in calories without bloating or stuffing yourself. Great product will definitely but more of this stuff when it runs out.
Best carb ive used so far for post workout shake taken with either whey protein isolate or ISO:pro 97. Fastest recovery from intense weight training sessions and no come down hrs after like some carbs. No nasty taste and mixes easily with water and unflavoured protein. Great value aswell. Will Defo be buying again. Less doms and muscle fuller days after. Enables me to train more often. Get this! You won't be disappointed Goes Well With:Impact whey protein isolate or ISO:pro 97
The best pre-workout carbohydrate ever....AAS type pump throughout the workout! Not stocked anymore by myprotein ?Goes Well With:Workout
For me no other pre workout (Bodybuilding,weights) carbs come close to this.....1 Scoop, about 1 1/2 hours before workout (best for me) amazing pumps and fullness. I only use workout days.Goes Well With:Whey,Caseinate and Creatine.
Brought this product for post workout along with whey. Got the unflavoured one. I mix it in with the whey, it mixes well, not grainy. Seems to to do the job. Only been using it week so too early to really see if it's effective
