VOLU‑GRO contains 60 grams of a very unique and ultra high-molecular weight carbohydrate called Long Chain Waxy Maize Starch per serving to maximize creatine and glycogen loading. Waxy Maize Starch is equally as potent in stimulating insulin as dextrose and maltodextrin, yet unlike these two sugars, Waxy Maize Starch is completely sugar free. Waxy Maize Starch passes through the stomach faster than dextrose or maltodextrin and therefore does not cause the same discomfort. In doing so Waxy Maize Starch acts like a pump, pulling creatine and water along with it into the bloodstream. This ensures that creatine and insulin are present in the bloodstream at the same time. A much greater amount of creatine can now be transported into the muscles due to synchronized levels of creatine and insulin in the blood.
Additionally, if taken immediately after training, the Waxy Maize Starch element in VOLU‑GRO restores muscular glycogen (muscle energy) faster than dextrose or maltodextrin. This makes VOLU‑GRO the ideal post workout creatine formula. It not only helps to deliver more creatine to the muscles, but also replenishes glycogen stores much quicker causing the muscle cells to become super-hydrated while speeding up recovery more efficiently than any other glucose polymer or monomer (dextrose, maltodextrin, sucrose, fructose etc.). The overall result is a greater muscle cell volume, enhanced protein synthesis, and improved nutrient transport; all major factors contributing to more muscle growth. The fusion of creatine with long chain waxy maize starch as seen in VOLU‑GRO has set a new standard in creatine supplementation.
Detailed Facts About VOLU‑GRO
Waxy Maize Starch
Sugar-free ultra-high molecular weight waxy maize starch is a very effective compound to load glycogen and creatine into muscles. Waxy maize starch has an extremely low osmolarity rate and forms a very hypotonic solution when mixed with water. These two factors allow waxy maize starch to pass through the stomach quicker than many other carbohydrates. In doing so it acts like a pump pulling creatine and fluids along with it into the bloodstream.
Consisting of 99% amylopectin waxy maize starch causes a rapid and pronounced insulin spike allowing for glucose and creatine to be pressed into muscle cells for cell expansion and super-hydration. In other words, the loading of creatine and glycogen are maximized.
Waxy maize starch is the ideal carbohydrate source for a post-workout drink as it quickly replenishes muscular glycogen stores hence optimizing recovery.
Creatine supplementation is essential to enhancing the capacity of energy production during high-intensity workouts. Creatine has proven itself, time and time again, to improve exercise performance accounting for gains in strength, power, and repetitive speed work. Long term creatine ingestion can also lead to significant gains in muscle mass accounted for higher workout intensity, more energy availability and augmentation of myosin heavy chain expression. The harder you train, with increased myogenic regulatory factors from creatine supplementation, the more apt you are to experiencing considerable hypertrophy.
Creatine monohydrate has also claimed its remarked absorption capacity (in comparison with other forms of creatine) especially when in conjunction with the ideal carbohydrate source such as ultra-high molecular weight waxy maize starch.
Magnesium makes a significant contribution to the glycogen loading system of VOLU‑GRO. Muscle and liver glycogen formation from blood glucose is enhanced as a result of magnesium supplementation. Magnesium also serves as an electrolyte, especially when combined with potassium.
Phosphorous is an important component of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), cyclic adenosine monophosphate (AMP), and phosphocreatine. All three are essential to providing energy to the body for all biological processes, particularly enhancing energy for intense workouts.
Potassium serves as an imperative electrolyte component for efficacious absorption of nutrients as well as clearing waste products from the body. Furthermore, potassium serves to optimize muscle action and stimulation from respective nerve impulses.

Days 1-5: During this five day loading phase take two servings daily. Consume one serving in the morning immediately upon waking and one serving immediately after your workout. On non-training days take your second serving in the afternoon between meals.
Day 6 on: Only one serving per day is needed. On training days consume Volu-Gro immediately after your workout. On non-training days take Volu-Gro immediately upon waking or in the afternoon between meals.
If you are a diabetic, consult your physician before using Volu-Gro. Stay well hydrated throughout the day.
