From mouth to muscle, Vitargo® is proven the fastest fuel for performance and recovery designed specifically for athletes.
In 1966, two scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden discovered that carbohydrate loading of muscles enhanced exercise endurance. Athletes learned that they needed carbohydrate to train hard and win. Sports drinks containing sugar and maltodextrin emerged to address the need though these ingredients were not specifically designed for athletes. They caused stomach and gut upset.
There had to be a better way.
Thirty years later in 1996, at the same lab, scientists confirmed the development of a new, groundbreaking, very fast high molecular weight starch designed specifically to fuel exercise without stomach upset. That was 22 years ago, and so far no one has caught up to the technology of Vitargo®.
The research resulted in a highly regarded published study in 2000 which proved that Vitargo replenished glycogen levels in muscles 70 % faster within 1-hour compared to maltodextrin-sugar-based sports drinks. A second study was published later the same year which showed that Vitargo left the stomach 2.3 times (130%) faster than other maltodextrin-sugar-based sports drinks.
In 2008 scientists proved that after exhaustive exercise Vitargo fueling increased performance up to 23% (average 10%) compared to maltodextrin-sugar-based sports drinks. In 2016 re-searchers showed that Vitargo fueling after exhaustive endurance exercise increased movement velocity and power output in repeated bouts of maximal resistance exercise.
WHAT IS VITARGO?
Vitargo is a revolutionary source of energy used by Olympians, elite athletes in all sports and millions of people striving to improve their exercise performance, health, and well-being. Vitargo is the fastest body fuel, allowing everyone to fully fuel training yet feel empty enough to train. Train with Vitargo again that day with same day recovery. Nothing comes close!
“Vitargo is the product we rely on …”
“Whether it is a 14-event race schedule at a three-day NCAA championship or the grueling 8-day meet at our Olympic Trials, Vitargo is the product we rely on to provide recovery nutrition for our athletes both pre- and post-racing. Our program would not have the success we are currently enjoying without the support of the Vitargo family and their products fueling our athletes.”
