The Carbohydrate source that ‘pushes’ through cell walls!
Osmocarb™️ is a Fast Absorbing, Taste Free, Non Chalky, Slow Burning glycosidic bonded carbohydrate source. Provides an even stream of carbohydrates, without spikes and or crashes, reduces and eliminates any Gut Rot or GU Gut associated with high fructose, sugar, honey or difficult to digest carbohydrate sources.
Our Guts are in a compromised state while racing, and simulating race conditions while training. The gastrointestinal track is under stress, inflammed, with altered pH and in less than optimal conditions for nutrient absorption.
To elevate the amount of carbohydrate the body can absorb, we suggest OsmoCarb™ as your efficient source of carbohydrate to maintain the best gut environment, while reducing the stomach distress commmonly associated with simple sugars; bloating, nausea & occassionally diarrhea.
Protocol For Use:
Primary carb source during 1st 3/4 of an endurance race: Triathlon, Marathon, Century.
Amounts based on your personal caloric needs, combined with electrolyte beverage to your water bottle
Can be combined with other simple or complex carbohydrate sources as needed.
Each Serving = 2 Rounded Tbps
Add your personal caloric requirements to your water bottle.
Personalize your Caloric Consumption for Maximum Results
Hourly carbohydrate consumption is extremely individualized, and our solution is to provide the best known absorbable carbohydrate source separately, as an ADD-IN to your nutrient-dense PhytoLyte™️ Electrolyte drink or to your existing 'non-carbohydrate' electrolyte beverage.

These glycoside bonds in OsmoCarb™️ have a very low molecular weight, thus the osmotic pressure is lower than blood; creating a ‘hypotonic’ environment, enabling rapid intestinal absorption pushing fluids through the cell walls. 2
Faster Gastric Emptying than dextrin, maltodextrin, sugars.
Reduces Bloating & Excesive gas while racing and training
Clinical evidence concludes that hypotonic drinks are faster absorbed to increase endurance. 1
OsmoCarb™️ is composed of cyclic carbohydrate chains which are packed into tight clusters via enzymatic breakdown and resulting in Amylopectin.
Amylopectin consists of easy to digest glycoside bonds, resulting in EASY digestion.
Cluster Dextrin® (Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin) is a new type of dextrin that is produced from amylopectin via a cyclization reaction of a branching enzyme (BE, 1,4-α-D-glucan: 1,4-α-D-glucan 6-α-D-(1,4-α-D-glucano)-transferase, EC 126.96.36.199). Ezaki Glico has successfully achieved industrial production of Cluster Dextrin® by applying its unique technology in enzymology. Glico obtained FDA Notified GRAS status for Cluster Dextrin® in October 2012. A Swimming Endurance Study with Cluster Dextrin® demonstrated a 50% increase to fatigue.* Cluster Dextrin improved Gastric Emptying Time compared in Glucose & Dextrin based solutions with a significantly higher tolerance.
Hourly carbohydrate consumption is extremely individualized, and our solution is to provide the best known absorbable carbohydrate source separately as an ADD-IN to our PhytoLyte Electrolyte drink, HydraMag drink or your existing 'non-carbohydrate' electrolyte beverage.
