I tried this great product on a recommendation from jmlstocks (thanks bro!). Like almost all other SciFit
products, this one is a winner in my book. I never was really big on ‘carb products’, besides Vitargo (which is amazing and ridiculously expensive btw) until I tried KarboLyn.
I primarily used this as pre cardio/wrestling/grappling supplement, so my review of it will be mostly based off of those experiences. However, I did use it postworkout on several occasions, so I will touch on KarboLyn’s effectiveness in that aspect also.
Profile: 9.5 out of 10
‘Karbo-Lyn is a patent pending homopolysaccharide, which is a newly developed rapid absorbing sugar free carbohydrate. Karbo-Lyn
is derived from corn, potato, and rice via an “enzymatic milling process” and has been precisely manipulated to create absorption through the stomach.’
30grams of Carbs per serving
Value: 8.5 out of 10
Initially I was not all that impressed with the value of this product, but my opinion changed after I realized its effectiveness. It is not as affordable as most fast carb products (glycomaize/maltodextrin, ect.), but it offers much more than most of those IMO. Overall, depending on where you purchase it from, it comes out to be in between $0.50-0.60 per serving, not too bad for what it does.
Taste: 7.5 out of 10
I can really care less about taste because I just chug everything down, but this was surprisingly decent, and I actually started to enjoy the Orange flavor.
Effectiveness: 9.5 out of 10
As I stated before, I mainly used this product for pre cardio purposes, so in terms of that, KarboLyn was extremely effective. I would just slam down 1 to 1.5 servings 30-45minutes before my cardio/wrestling sessions and away I’d go. No issues with bloating or a ‘heavy’ feeling in my stomach, which is common for me if I were to ‘carb load’ instead. Initially, I was somewhat skeptical of the ‘never ending’ energy claims, but they couldn’t be any more truthful. KarboLyn + 3 grams of Beta Alanine
and I felt like I could not run out of gas, the stamina/energy from this product is pretty amazing.
In terms of using KarboLyn for postworkout purposes, it served as a solid alternative to other ‘quick carbs’, although not nearly as cost effective. You could tell that the absorption rate is very fast and its nice and easy on the stomach. Overall I’d recommend it for either use.
All in all, Karbolyn is a very solid product with multiple uses. Personally, I think it works even better than I could have ever imagined. It will remain a staple for me as long as I keep doing intense cardio sessions. If you are in the market for a solid pre cardio and/or postworkout carb source, KarboLyn is the way to go.
