Whether you’re an endurance athlete looking for more energy, or a bodybuilder looking to quickly refill glycogen storages and achieve the glycemic peak for increased protein synthesis and muscle gains, Vitargo Pure is for you – as it is for the thousands of elite athletes, including powerlifters, hockey players, competitive bodybuilders and Olympic medalists.
Virtually zero sugars, zero fat and zero protein
Vitargo Pure offers pure Vitargo Carbohydrates with no additions and virtually zero sugars, zero fat and zero protein. Vitargo comes in a convenient powder so you can add as much as you need to your drink (or protein shake) depending on how much you want to carbo-load.
Energy Fuel for anytime
20-60 minutes pre-training or event, drink Vitargo. Use the Carb Calculator to determine your personalized dose. Do a couple of practice rides or runs to determine your timing. Vitargo begins to empty from the stomach within 10 minutes, but some people need more than 20 minutes pre-exercise to feel comfortable as well as energized. Many find the “sweet spot” to be 30-45 minutes pre-exercise.
Workouts, training sessions, and competitive events that last longer than 90 minutes will usually benefit from re-fueling approximately every 45-60 minutes. Your hourly carbohydrate gram need is personalized for you in the carb calculator. You want to be ahead of your energy burn rate, meaning that you want to have taken your Vitargo before your tank runs low, to give time for intra-exercise stomach emptying and flow into your bloodstream to begin: about 20 minutes.
Post-training or post-event, as soon as possible use Vitargo plus protein to begin the processes to refuel, recover, repair and grow. Then go eat a great meal. For those with very high carbohydrate and protein needs, a second serving of Vitargo plus protein may be beneficial later in the day.
