CAN YOU EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS, THE RESEARCH THE YOU HAVE DONE ON VITARGO AND HOW IT MAY IMPACT MY TRAINING?
According to the research data from independent university laboratories published in peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts, Vitargo is emptied from the stomach, enters the small intestine, and arrives in the bloodstream twice as fast as maltodextrin plus multi-transport carbohydrates, known to be the next fastest carb supplement. Glycogen is replenished in muscle cells within two hours—again twice as fast as any other rapid sports drink, and performance studies have shown up to a 23 percent higher work output two hours after exhaustive exercise. Therefore, recovery is very rapid. Independent research also shows that when taken with Vitargo, L-carnitine enters the muscle cell and improves fat oxidation during exercise to reduce perceived exertion and enhance work output. Vitargo is very easy on the gut and can be used before, during and after both resistance and endurance exercise without any stomach upset or bloating. No other product outperforms Vitargo, backed by published, peer-reviewed research studies.
HOW DOES VITARGO’S STIMULATION OF INSULIN ENHANCE TRAINING RESULTS?
The purpose of Vitargo is to deliver fast fuel. It is rapidly emptied from the stomach, rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream to raise blood glucose levels with a rapid insulin response to deliver the blood glucose to your muscle cells faster. That is the only way that you can fuel high-intensity performance. You can only improve athletic performance through athletically challenging your muscles. Vitargo is the premium fuel for athletic challenge and enhanced training results.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEXTROSE AND VITARGO?
Dextrose is a simple sugar that is chemically identical to glucose but always made from corn. Dextrose has a tiny molecular weight of 180 g/mol. Vitargo has an enormous molecular weight of 500,000-700,000 g/mol. Small molecules pull water into your digestive tract, very large molecules do not. This unique characteristic allows you to fuel with much more Vitargo at one time without any stomach fullness, bloating, or discomfort, and is likely part of the reason behind the rapid stomach emptying and refueling properties of Vitargo. With Vitargo you can fully fuel your training and feel empty enough to train.
DO YOU CUT YOUR VITARGO WITH LESS EXPENSIVE CARBS?
NEVER! We third-party test every batch and guarantee the purity of our product. There is never anything in our product that is not on the label. The only carbohydrate in our product is Vitargo, period!
ISN’T VITARGO THE SAME AS WAXY MAIZE?
Vitargo is very different than other products made from waxy maize. Waxy maize is simply a high starch corn variety commonly used in the food industry. It is cornstarch. Vitargo can be and has been produced from any food starch, including waxy maize, potato, and barley. We use a patented process to create Vitargo with the unique properties characteristic of our product. No other brand can make Vitargo, or anything close, regardless of the source of their starch.
WHAT IS THE GLYCEMIC INDEX GI OF VITARGO?
Many people ask the glycemic Index of carbs in common. A sports drink should have a high glycemic index, giving a rapid and easily accessible energy to the bloodstream and this is the case of Vitargo. No exact value is known at the moment, but insulin and blood glucose values indicates higher GI than for maltodextrin (glucose polymer) ~137.
HOW LONG BEFORE EXERCISE SHOULD I TAKE TAKE VITARGO?
Vitargo begins to empty from your stomach within 10 minutes and most people feel pretty comfortable 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. So take it for a test ride or run and figure out what works best for you.
HOW MANY CARBS ARE IN A SCOOP OF VITARGO?Y SHOULD I TAKE CREATINE TOGETHER WITH VITARGO RATHER THAN CREATINE ALONE?
There are 35 grams of carbohydrate per scoop of Vitargo.
CAN I TRAIN FOR A BIKINI CONTEST ON VITARGO?
Vitargo is fantastic to fuel your training for bikini contests. Many women find that the closer they get to contest, the more they target their carb fuel right around their training times, and Vitargo is the ideal choice. Even on contest day, Vitargo can be your primary nutrition source, causing no bloating or gas, yet keeping you fueled to pose steady and be strong on stage.
WHY MUCH VITARGO DO I NEED PER HOUR FOR AN IRONMAN RACE?
Every person has a different fuel burn rate, but in general Ironman competitors burn from 600-1200 calories per hour out on the course depending on gender, training, body size and pace. Considering the same caveats, 60-90% of your calorie burn will come from carbohydrates. That means that carbohydrate grams usage can be as low as 90 grams to as high as 270 grams per hour, with some wiggle room around those numbers again based on the factors noted and more. Since you should have stored glycogen in your muscles before your race, a smaller or slower competitor may do well with 2 scoops of Vitargo per hour. We know that many highly competitive Ironman racers use 6+ scoops of Vitargo per hour by mixing it into less water and turning it into a gel for easy carrying on the course and then drinking plain water at hydration stations.
CAN I SWIM AND USE VITARGO?
Absolutely. The top swimmers in the world fuel with Vitargo. Coach Dave Durden, Men’s Swim Coach for the UC Berkeley Golden Bears swears by Vitargo for all of his athletes. Female and male Olympians have won their gold medal races fueled by Vitargo.
IS VITARGO JUST FOR RECOVERY?
Vitargo is the perfect pre-exercise, during exercise and post-exercise recovery fuel, and we have the data to prove it.
WILL VITARGO MAKE ME FAT?
Here’s the thing: eating the wrong foods, too much food, and no exercise are the biggest reasons that people become overfat. It may surprise you that the thing that holds most people back from achieving a sculpted physique is under-fueling their training. Most people plateau or get stuck before reaching their goals because they think that all it takes is hard training to burn fat. But if you don’t fuel your body with carbohydrate you can’t do high-intensity exercise. Your body needs carbs to train at high levels. When you lack carbs, you feel like you’re training really hard, but if we measured your work output it would actually be low. So your calorie burn is lower than you think it is, and your training suffers. When you fuel your body before high-intensity exercise, you train harder for longer, burn more calories, get a better training effect, and you burn more fat during recovery. That’s what creates the ultimate sculpt. Trainers who fuel with Vitargo know that they’ve never looked better!
HOW TRANSPARENT IS YOUR INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PRODUCT AND WHAT KIND OF TESTING DO YOU DO?
