Vitago is a patented molecular carbohydrate derived from a special barley starch. S2 means Super Soluble, making it much easier to mix. Vitargo S2 is unique because it is specially processed to yield a molecular profile that is massively different from the carbs that make up sugars (e.g. glucose, fructose, sucrose) and maltodextrin found in ordinary sport, energy, and recovery drinks. Most importantly, Vitargo is proven to work in athletesin university studies.
How Does Vitargo Work?
Vitargo is a molecule that dwarfs sugars as well as maltodextrin, the carbs found in ordinary energy and recovery drinks. Vitargo's larger size minimises its osmolality, which refers to how much water it draws around it. Vitargo's low osmolality allows it to move through the stomach over 2 times faster than other carbohydrates, which tend to act more like a sponge in the stomach. Spending less time in the stomach allows Vitargo to be delivered to the part of the intestinal tract, the duo denum where it is rapidly digested and absorbed. This provides a near immediate surge in energy to blood and muscle, superior to other ordinary carbohydrates. After training or competition is over Vitargo recovers glycogen fast, allowing for an increase in performance up to 23% greater after just two hours when compared to carbohydrates found in ordinary sport and recovery drinks.
Carbohydrate-based energy and recovery beverages can make you feel bloated. That's because the type of carbohydrate use in ordinary formulas act like sponges drawing water into the stomach, which can cause uncomfortable bloating, distension, and cramping. Vitargo is a patented molecular carbohydrate form proven to empty from the stomach faster and be absorbed into the body quicker. In fact, university researchers found that Vitargo emptied from the stomach more than 2 times faster than a comparable beverage with sugars and maltodextrin, the types of carbohydrates used in many popular sports/energy and recovery drinks and powders.
