RICH PIANA 5% REAL CARBS COMPLEX
As great as an arsenal of quality supplements can be, there’s nothing like real whole food meals. In fact, Rich Piana believed that you should be eating several high-quality whole food meals a day if you want to make maximum progress.
However, we understand that the idea of prepping 3-4 meals a day doesn’t always work for a lot of people. Many people lead very active lifestyles and just don’t have enough time to prep or eat enough quality real food meals. Real Carbs is an innovative whole food based product designed to help you get the nutrition you need to grow easily and quickly.
Real Carbs is a complex carbohydrate powder that consists of Sweet Potatoes, Oats, Yams, and Blueberry Fruit Powder. This combination is primarily low glycemic and provides 22 grams of carbs per serving with just 2 grams of sugar. Real Carbs comes in several delicious flavors including Sweet Potato Pie, Blueberry Cobbler, Strawberry Shortcake and Banana Nut Bread. Enjoy it several times per day as a meal or pre/post-workout meal especially if you combine it with a superior whole food protein source such as our Egg White Crystals.
Total Carbohydrates – 22 Grams per serving from:
Sweet Potato – Sweet potatoes are a mainstay in the diets of many bodybuilders and athletes due to their nutrient profile, delicious flavor and the fact that they are considered a low glycemic carbohydrate. Sweet Potatoes originate in the Americas and contain high amounts of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, B vitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin C.(1) Additionally, they provide fiber and add sweetness to the flavor.
Oats – This is regular rolled oats which is another mainstay in the diets of many bodybuilders and athletes. Oats are a low glycemic carbohydrate that are also high in important minerals and fiber. The combination of these three carbohydrate sources creates an outstanding real food Carbohydrate Powder that sets a new standard in the industry.
Wild Yam – Often confused with Sweet Potatoes, they are not the same thing. While both are tuberous vegetables, Yams are not quite as nutrient dense or as sweet. They provide good sources of minerals such as potassium, phosphorous, and magnesium as well as vitamin C and are another low glycemic carbohydrate found in the diets of many bodybuilders and athletes.(2)
Blueberry Fruit Powder – Blueberries add to the overall flavor of Real Carbs but are one of the most nutritious fruits available.(3) They are high in manganese, vitamin K, vitamin C, and fiber as well as an extremely rich source of antioxidants. The cognitive and cardiovascular health benefits of Blueberries are largely attributed to a type of antioxidant known as flavonoids, specifically, a flavonoid group called anthocyanins.(4) The use of real food in Real Carbs supplies exceptional health benefits you won’t find in other types of carb powders and illustrates one of the primary reasons Rich Piana was adamant about getting in several whole food meals throughout the day.
The Flavors – You can’t really talk about Real Carbs without talking about the amazing flavors, especially since there are two brand new flavor options. Now there’s Strawberry Shortcake and Banana Nut Bread along with original flavors Sweet Potato Pie as well as Blueberry Cobbler. Talk about delicious!
