Product Description

Size: 5kg

Product Description

Vitargo is the ultimate sports performance carbohydrate, delivering rapid glycogen resynthesis to the muscles (70% faster than other carbohydrates such as dextrose and maltodextrin). Using Vitargo to rapidly refuel glycogen has been shown to improve performance and recovery in peer reviewed research studies! Our super soluble S2 version gives all the benefits of regular Vitargo but with an easier to mix product. Vitargo is the ultimate sports performance carbohydrate, manufactured in Sweden by Lyckeby Starch using a unique patented process. ***Please note that BULK POWDERS stocks 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.*** HOW IS VITARGO DIFFERENT TO OTHER CARBOHYDRATE SOURCES? 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 80% faster than the aforementioned products. The result of this is that Vitargo is absorbed extremely quickly and provides almost instant energy to working muscles. Furthermore when Vitargo is consumed after training or competition, it replenishes muscle glycogen levels 70% faster than other sports drinks, enabling faster recovery and an increase in performance of approximately 23%! What's more Vitargo is also 100% sugar-free! What is important to note here is that these claims are backed by clinical testing (carried out at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm) and are not examples of the exaggerated claims that product manufacturer's often make. To view these clinical studies please click here and here. WHERE TO FIND VITARGO: 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. Vitargo can also be referred to as Vitargo Powder, Vitargo S2, Pure Vitargo, Super-Soluble Vitargo. Supplementing with Vitargo can have numerous benefits on sporting performance: INCREASE ENERGY Due to the rapid nature in which Vitargo passes through the stomach, it is absorbed by the working muscles 80% faster than sugar based carbohydrates such as dextrose and maltodextrin. This means that Vitargo is the best way for athletes to gain almost instant energy and without suffering from the 'crash' or 'come-down' inevitably experienced with sugar-based products. To this extent Vitargo is an ideal supplement for endurance athletes such as tri-athletes, long-distance runners and cyclists, but would also be beneficial for anybody participating on physical activity for 45 minutes or longer. INCREASE ENDURANCE It is stated that endurance athletes should undertake carbohydrate loading for around 3 days prior to competition. For an average 75kg person this would mean approximately 600g of digestible carbohydrates per day, or the equivalent of 2.5kg of boiled pasta! This is almost impossible for most people to consume, but using Vitargo this would simply mean drinking around 5 x 75g servings on top of your daily food intake. IMPROVE PERFORMANCE Alongside carbohydrate loading it is vital to ensure that blood sugar levels remain elevated during competition or intense training periods. When blood sugar levels start to decrease it is scientifically proven that levels of performance also drop. It is recommended that for every hour of exertion you should consume around 1g-1.5g of carbohydrates per kg of bodyweight. A 75kg athlete should therefore be taking on around 75g-112g of carbohydrates per hour during exercise. Using Vitargo is the ideal way to ensure your body receives this necessary amount of carbohydrates to keep blood sugar levels elevated and thereby ensuring optimal physical performance. IMPROVE RECOVERY Taking Vitargo immediately after exercise has been proven to replenish muscle glycogen 70% faster than other carbohydrates. Low glycogen levels lead to fatigue and extend recovery periods needed after exercise. Supplementing with Vitargo can prevent fatigue, muscle soreness and also reduce recovery periods needed between training sessions.

Vitargo was recommended to me as a carb source to drink with my protein shake pre and post exercise. I had previously used Vitarade and would say that I preferred it but this is only a personal choice. The powder is a good carb source that speeds muscle recovery but does not bloat. Am happy to have found these products and the price is middle of the road.

Has the taste and consistency of Solvite wallpaper paste - it did however prevent the 'crash' after an intense workout but so did the Maltodextrin Dextrose powder (also by Bulk Powders) which tastes much better and mixes easily. Can't say it was a waste of money as I'm decorating the hallway next week.

Easy and efficient way to monitor your carb intake. One downside is its poor solubility. Warm-ish water doesn't even improve it :( need to find a trick!

Best carbs I have ever used!

I have been training for over 15 years and I have tried all types of carbs out there for recovery after training and these are the best I have tried, you can use them as pre or post workout.

Arrived in a green "Complete Series" bag, not the white "Pure Series". The Complete series doesn't include Vitargo so perhaps they just ran out of green bags at the factory? Hmmmm. Or did they put the wrong sticker on the bag and this could be anything from the Complete seriers?
Also, it's fairly flavourless and given it's just a white powder, I have no idea whether it's even Vitargo. Didn't notice anything after tacking it but because I haven't used Vitargo previously, I have no point of reference to compare it with. Basically, it could be anything and given the packaging mistake, I'm unsure if I should even continue to use it. Don't really want to keep injesting 75g of an unknown substance if it's not Vitargo
