Vitargo® is a patented, molecular carbohydrate with ZERO SUGAR. Only Vitargo’s low osmolality, molecular carbohydrate form is university-research proven to move through the stomach more than twice as fast as the carbohydrates (e.g. maltodextrin and sugars) found in other sport drinks and powders.
That means faster carbohydrate digestion and absorption into the body. It also means no bloating or that “heavy stomach” feeling common to ordinary carbohydrate-based products. Furthermore, Vitargo is the only product of its kind that is university-research proven to deliver carbohydrate to muscle and the rest of the body 2X faster after exhaustive exercise and to accelerate glycogen refueling and recovery.
Because university studies have shown that Vitrago – when consumed at rest – was able to transit out of the stomach twice as fast as ordinary carbohydrates, many of our elite and pro athlete users take Vitargo before or during training/competition or at half-time, between periods, on the bench and while transitioning between sports (e.g triathletes).
Improved Gastric Emptying Rate in Humans of a Unique Glucose Polymer with Gel-forming Properties
Many athletes complain about sports drinks giving them stomach discomfort. All we can say about that is: It is history! Vitargo has a very low osmolality, giving you a rapid stomach emptying, in fact 80% faster than with ordinary sports drinks. The 2nd study made on Vitargo at Karolinska Institute of Sweden shows that. ’ Improved gastric emptying rate in humans of a unique glucose polymer with gel forming properties’ Scand. J. Gastroenterol 2000;35:1143-1149.
Muscle glycogen resynthesis rate in humans after supplementation of drinks containing carbohydrates with low and high molecular masses
Vitargo replenishes glycogen levels in your muscles 70% faster than any other sports drink carbohydrate! The 1st study made on Vitargo at Karolinska Institute of Sweden shows that. ’ Muscle glycogen resynthesis rate in humans after supplementation of drinks containing carbohydrates with low and high molecular masses’ Eur J Appl Physiol 81:346-351.
Post-exercise ingestion of a unique, high molecular weight glucose polymer solution improves performance during a subsequent bout of cycling exercise
A new clinical study made on the Vitargo starch, published in Journal of Sports and Science shows that post-exercise ingestion of a unique, high-molecular weight glucose polymer solution improves performance during a subsequent bout of cycling exercise’ journal of sports sciences, 1-6.

How Vitargo® is made
Vitargo® is produced by a special starch commodity which consists of amylopectin starch. This makes it possible to have large molecules such as Vitargo be totally stable in a water solution. The highly regarded raw material of Vitargo comes mainly from specially select and strict contract farming in south east of Sweden. READ MORE>
