* Carbohydrate content: 100% Vitargo ®
* Better than maltodextrin and dextrose.
* Faster glycogen replenishment.
* Leave your stomach fast = energy fast!
Vitargo® is a patented carbohydrate composition with unique properties, specially formulated for top athletes to effectively store easily accessible muscle energy (glycogen) in their bodies. Vitargo® is a considerably longer carbohydrate chain than those used in all other carbohydrate energy drinks, the molecular structure is reminiscent of that of glycogen.
The larger the carbohydrate chain, the faster it will pass through the stomach and it will be quickly absorbed into your blood via the intestines. This is called osmolality, the lower the osmolality the faster the gastric passage will be. Vitargo® has been clinically tested at the Karolinska Institute of Sports in Stockholm and compared with other 'normal' carbohydrate-rich sports drinks. The results show that Vitargo® is faster in the replenishment of glycogen stores and gastric passage compared to the normally used combinations of complex glucose polymers (glucose, fructoes, dextrose, maltrose, malttrodextrin).
Vitargo Electrolyte can be used to replenish your glycogen stores before or after a competition or long workout. To do this, mix half to a whole bag of Vitargo with 500 ml of water. Vitargo can also be taken during exercise. In that case, mix half a bag of Vitargo with 500 ml of water.
