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.
The highly regarded raw starch of Vitargo comes mainly from specially selected and strict non-GMO contract farming in the south-east of Sweden. The farmer-owned cooperative plant in south-east Sweden where Vitargo is produced is completely computerized and controlled to ensure the highest quality grade available. The Vitargo powder is processed in a “closed system”, in a factory which only produces starch, so there is no risk of contamination.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Vitargo is proven to work in athletes—in peer-reviewed published university studies.* Part of the secret of Vitargo's technology is its molecular size. 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 sucrose (dextrose).
CARBOHYDRATE MOLECULAR WEIGHT
High Molecular Weight Vitargo 500,000 to 700,000
Maltodextrin 1,000 to 10,000
Starch syrup 250 to 1,000 Sucrose (Dextrose) 180
Vitargo's larger size minimizes its osmolality, which refers to how much water it attracts around itself, or pulls into your intestines. Vitargo's low osmolality allows it to move through the stomach faster than other carbohydrates, which tend to act more like a sponge in the stomach. This helps you feel emptier compared to any other carbohydrate drink. Spending less time in the stomach allows Vitargo to be delivered faster to the intestinal tract where it is rapidly digested and absorbed. This provides a near immediate energy boost to blood and muscle, superior to other ordinary carbohydrates.* After training or competition, Vitargo recovers glycogen stores faster, allowing for an increase in performance.*
Vitargo starts emptying from your stomach in just 10 minutes: more than 2 times faster than the other known fast carb, maltodextrin. Within 10 minutes Vitargo is on its way to deliver high-octane carbs to your muscle and brain cells to fuel your training. Vitargo is a complex starch that is so rapidly emptied from the stomach and fully digestible that there is no sense of stomach fullness. That means that you can fuel and refuel on the fly during your exercise bouts with virtually all the energy that you need to beat the challenge!
Vitargo blows the doors off of carbohydrate fuel replenishment, getting glucose to muscle cells faster. Your brain receives the signal that you've got fuel on board—full speed ahead to burn energy! Now these carbs know exactly where to go—they become fuel for your muscles to train hard, and calorie burn and after burn are maximized! Training effect and sculpting are optimized!*
Vitargo led to nearly 2 times higher and faster muscle fuel recovery just 2 hours after exhaustive exercise. Train, and train again the same day. After exercise you can combine Vitargo with your favorite protein for measurable recovery—measurable performance enhancement!*
UNIVERSITY PROVEN GAME CHANGER!
Vitargo is among a rare breed of supplements with independent university-based scientific research backing up every single claim! Conducted by world-class scientists, multiple published studies establish the physiologic pathway that Vitargo, the key starch ingredient in Vitargo, takes in the body to be the Fastest Body Fuel™: from stomach to intestine to bloodstream to muscle cells, and ultimately to the support of enhanced performance and recovery.*
Vitargo can be stacked with your favorite non-carb supplements (protein, pre-workout, amino acids, electrolytes, creatine, etc.). A clinical study showed that stacking Vitargo with L-carnitine led to measurable benefits for athletes. L-carnitine alone did nothing. Vitargo improves the absorption and storage of creatine. Stacking protein with Vitargo is an optimal recovery strategy.*

The premium carbohydrate choice for meeting the intense demands of life.
Vitargo is the fastest, university-proven body fuel to power your performance and recovery. Elite fueling for hard training is the ideal system to expand the boundaries of human endeavor, sustain metabolic balance, and form a sculpted physique
Same Day Recovery®: Replenishing muscle glycogen as fast and fully as possible after intense training is key to maximizing muscle recovery. Vitargo achieved nearly 2 times higher and faster muscle fuel recovery just 2 hours after exhaustive exercise compared to maltodextrin, glucose or dextrose based supplements. Train, and train again the same day, with up to 23% more maximal endurance.
Fastest Body Fuel™: Peer reviewed, published University research shows that the best way to replenish muscle glycogen stores after workouts is to consume high molecular weight (HMW) carbs immediately following a workout. Vitargo is the fastest absorbing super HMW carbohydrate available and the perfect choice post-workout.
Post Workout Muscle Recovery: Muscle refueling, repair and recovery will help athletes achieve peak performance. Vitargo post workout drink allows for rapid uptake of elements of recovery like glucose, amino acids, creatine and carnitine. Research shows that Vitargo is the fastest carb for post workout recovery.
Stacking: Ideal for stacking with non-carbohydrate pre-workout supplements and electrolytes, Vitargo is also the perfect companion for amino acids and protein for post workout recovery. Vitargo Carbohydrate enhances uptake of creatine, and only Vitargo has been shown to stimulate transport of carnitine across the muscle cell membrane for enhanced fat oxidation and energy metabolism.
Natural Flavors: Vitargo is offered in 6 natural flavors (Fruit Punch, Grape, Lemon Lime, Mango, Orange, Watermelon) and Plain.
Vitargo is sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan, halal, kosher and free of banned substances, certified by the Banned Substance Control Group (BSCG).
Our mission doesn't stop there. When you fully fuel your training you also support your body's needs throughout the rest of the day. Our goal is to empower your desire to train hard and meet the intense demands of a full life.
