    i can answer the second question, its cause it works the fastest basically cause its in liquid form...u could use any carb like breads and rice's and shit but this is just faster to replenish the glycogen levels. this is my opinion dont know if its a fact.

    all carbs on the GI are compared to dex.. it spikes your insulin the fastest.. its easy to get the amount correct and it makes shakes mmm good

    there's a lot of debate on this...here is one particular thread that explains both theories

    Question on amounts/type of carbs needed after workout

    i myself agree with deca in that it is a no fuss way to get my PWO ratios down...and it makes the shakes taste yummy!

    haha...let me rephrase that...there are a couple different opinions. there has been more evidence presented in the "any carb PWO will do" case.
