Vitargo is a "Fast Carbohydrate" used to Fuel Performance and Recovery.
VitargoS2 is a patented, non-bioengineered starch, a sugar-free carbohydrate for fueling (before and during) and recovery (after) for any intense training or competition. Vitargo S2 is virtually bloat-proof, produces a 2x faster glycemic (blood sugar) rise, and promotes 1.7x faster muscle carbohydrate (glycogen) and performance recovery (no other starch product has this evidence, especially waxy maize or special "homopolysaccharides").
Vitargo S2 can be made into a drink, a gel/pudding, or frozen, and can be mixed with any other low to zero carb nutrition product (especially pre-workout and protein products). Each batch of Vitargo S2 is certified free of banned substances by the only lab that is WADA experienced in North America, BSCG.org. Vitargo™, Proof Before Promises™.
Proof Before Promises - University Born
About 1 out of 1,000 nutrition products has ANY independent scientific evidence that the actual product works in humans, better than a placebo (or anything else). Vitargo is one of those rare products reinforced by multiple university studies, conducted in top research laboratories led by world class scientists. The evidence showing Vitargo to be the “Fastest Muscle Fuel” links a critical metabolic sequence, unmatched by any other carb: from gut transit to glycemic response to glycogen recovery to recovery performance. In each of these studies Vitargo was compared head-to-head against the fastest generic carb, maltodextrin:
• BLOAT-PROOF – 2.3x faster movement through the stomach into the intestine, in just 10 minutes after a 75 gram dose11. So you can gulp (not sip) Vitargo pre-training/competition, or even intra (during) and not worry about bloating or “seeing it again”
• GLYCEMIC SURGE—CRASH-PROOF – Just 10 minutes after a 100 gram dose of Vitargo, the speed of blood sugar (glycemic) rise is 2x faster, with no glycemic “cliff dive”12. Fuel your brain and your muscles faster, without carb “crashing”
• GLYCOGEN SPEED – Intense exercise, of any type, relies on muscle glycogen as the major fuel source, even under low carb/low glycogen conditions1,13,14. Two hours after exhaustive exercise, Vitargo led to 1.7x higher and faster muscle glycogen replacement15. Part of this may be due to the 1.8x higher and faster insulin spike just 10 minutes after taking it12. It’s not how high/fast is the glycemic (or blood insulin) response but how high/fast are muscle carbs (glycogen) being replaced after intense training or competition. Vitargo is fantastically suited for carb loading, due in part to it moving so quickly through the gut...

Vitargo is a unique carbohydrate because it is specially processed to yield a high molecular weight profile that is massively different from the carbohydrates 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 athletes—in peer-reviewed published university studies. Part of the secret of Vitargo’s technology is the molecular size of Vitargo. Scientists use molecular weight (how heavy the molecule is) to determine the size of molecules. As shown in the table, Vitargo is hundreds and thousands of times larger than maltodextrin and sugars.
CARBOHYDRATE MOLECULAR WEIGHT
High Molecular Weight Vitargo: 500,000 to 700,000 g/mol
Maltodextrin: 1,000 to 10,000 g/mol
Starch syrup: 250 to 1,000 g/mol
Sucrose: 342 g/mol
Dextrose (glucose) : 180 g/mol
But molecular size alone does not make Vitargo unique. Vitargo is made through a special fractionation process that makes it rapidly digestible and therefore capable of delivering glucose to the blood, liver, and muscle at least twice as fast as other ordinary carbohydrates. Other so-called “high molecular weight” carbohydrates are “weightless” when it comes to proof—they have zero university studies showing superior fuel delivery or performance in humans.
