WHAT IS VITARGO®?
Vitargo® is the ultimate sports performance carbohydrate. BULK POWDERS® offers Vitargo® S2, which is the super-soluble form of Vitargo®. Starch-based products in general do not mix well in liquids. However, this form of Vitargo® has been produced in such a way that solubility is not an issue.
Vitargo® consists of much larger carbohydrate molecules than other sugar-based carbohydrates such as Dextrose, Fructose, Sucrose and Maltodextrin; which are often the preserve of the mainstream sports drinks you find in various gyms and supermarkets. These larger molecules ultimately enable Vitargo® to move through the stomach faster than the aforementioned products. The result of this is that Vitargo® is absorbed extremely quickly. Furthermore, when Vitargo® is consumed after training or competition, it replenishes muscle glycogen levels*. What’s more, Vitargo® is also 100% sugar-free!
Vitargo® is produced from barley starch. Barley starch is naturally occurring in foodstuffs such as cereals and grains. These products will not however have anywhere near the same properties as Vitargo® due to the patented process by which it is produced.

WHO IS VITARGO® SUITABLE FOR?

* Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. The beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4 g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.Disclaimer: Implied results may vary. Individuals will respond differently. Implied results assume an appropriate nutrition and training plan.
