    Carbs for supplements?

    I am looking to get carbs in my supplement for pre-workout and post-workout. For pre it is energy to boost my performance. For post it is recovery.
    What carbs do yall suggest? I considered creatine but from researching i am told it is dangerous to the body and for nitric oxide stuff i was also told it can mess up the body as well. Thank you for your time and answers.

    Wherever you've been "researching," please don't go there anymore.

    Creatine is one of the few novel ergogens we have, and is incredibly safe. Outside of caffeine it's likely the most studied supplement available. Also, you do not specifically need post workout carbohydrates for recovery. Eat a meal at some point after your workout bout. Pre workout: have a carbohydrate-rich meal 60-90 minutes pre bout.

    If you want carbs in a preworkout, mix in some sports drink powder or buy some dextrose. You can get that in bulk from any place that sells baking ingredients in bulk. Otherwise, just eat a banana or 2.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Dietary carbs from food are your best bet, loading works for at least a full day pre workout.

    Stop researching wherever said creatine was 'dangerous to the body'. Take 3-5g every day, any time of day, in any beverage, no loading, no cycling.

    What does "nitric oxide stuff" refer to? Sounds like equally bad advice/info.

    Post workout, food.

    Pre, like an hour+ before, food carbs, banana, rice, cereal, oatmeal, whatever floats your boat.

    If you want something immediately pre or intra, highly branched cyclic dextric, for example, nutra bio super carb or gaspari glycofuse

    if your a hardgainer you can just use dextrose.

    I used to use maltodextrin and it worked along with protein. Its just calories. (everyone says food, but guys lets face it some people can't eat so much comfortably) I used to chug 400 caloried of ultrafuel on the way to the gym and sure I could of had food but 400 calories in a quick drink is easier for some.

    Preworkout carbs are some of the funnest things to eat. That is, sweets with mainly or entirely sugar. You know, the stuff that otherwise you're supposed to stay away from. My preference is salted caramel chews.

    Edit: There's only so much carbs you can ingest from food at any time. So if you need 30+ grams, then a liquid carb like Gatorade/dextrose will digest faster.

    Unless you're endurance training or your workout sessions are >2.5 hours, there is no reason to time your carbs. Eat them as you see fit whenever convenient. You certainly don't need a supplement.

    You shouldn't have edited. Brb, need to crap out the complete unprocessed carbs. I ate over 30 grams.
