Vitargo® S2 is the original super carb, proven in university studies in humans to be up to 2.3x faster than maltodextrin (homopolysaccharide). Vitargo’s patented IVg technology delivers faster gut transit, glycemic and insulin responses (within a normal range), muscle glycogen refuelling, and performance.* No other carb has this span of proof. Vitargo S2 is 100% sugar-free, lab tested gluten-free, and certified undetectable banned substances.
- Leaves the stomach quicker3x faster than maltodextrin + sugars – in the first 10 minutes after ingestion.1 This leads to less stomach “distress” and faster absorbing muscle energy.*
- Gets into muscle faster7x faster glycogen re/fueling than maltodextrin + sugars after intense, exhaustive workouts. Within a normal range.*
- Boosts performance in your next workoutUp to 23% greater maximal endurance (average of 10% greater) 2 hours after exhaustive, glycogen-depleting exercise, compared to maltodextrin + sugars.3*
- Turns off muscle protein breakdown8x faster/higher insulin response than maltodextrin + sugars (insulin levels within a normal range), within 10 minutes – the most potent, natural way to activate the anti-catabolic signals that spare muscle protein.*
Directions of Use:
Before: Vitargo begins to empty from your stomach within 10 minutes and most people like to begin exercise between 20-60 minutes after taking Vitargo. On the other hand, Vitargo is regularly used during exercise without any time between consumption and exercise. Take it for a test ride or run and figure out what works best for you.
During: Workouts, training sessions, and competitive events that last longer than 60-90 minutes will benefit from re-fueling approximately every 45-60 minutes, and your exact timing will depend on when you drank your pre-workout dose. Your hourly carbohydrate gram need is personalized for you in the carb calculator. You want to be ahead of your energy burn rate, meaning that you want to have taken your Vitargo before your tank runs low, giving time for stomach emptying and digestion to begin: about 15-20 minutes.
After: Post-training or post-event, as soon as possible use Vitargo alone or Vitargo plus protein to begin the processes to refuel, recover, repair and grow. Then go eat a great meal. For those with very high carbohydrate and protein needs, a second serving of Vitargo or Vitargo plus protein may be beneficial later in the day.
How to make a gel: Start by putting the Vitargo powder into a small bowl. For every 1 scoop of Vitargo, add 1.5 to 2 ounces of water depending on your desired consistency. Stir with a spoon for about 1 minute. Then let the gel sit for roughly 5 minutes until it becomes clear. Transfer the Vitargo gel into a gel sport bottle and you are ready to go!
