Genr8 Vitargo S2
Genr8 Vitargo S2 is the super-soluble form of Vitargo, 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, Genr8 VitargoS2 IVg technology 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 Vitargo - 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 VitargoS2 before or during training/competition or at half-time, between periods, on the bench and while transitioning between sports (e.g triathletes).
Let's face it; a sport nutrition product's claims are only as good as its research proof. Vitargo S2's patented IVg technology is the only product of its kind that is university-research proven to be a more effective refueling and recovery carbohydrate source than those found in virtually all other sport and recovery products.
Genr8 Vitargo S2 is the super soluble form of Vitargo, a patented molecular carbohydrate. Compared to carbohydrates such as maltodextrin and sugars used in ordinary fuel and recovery drinks and powders, Vitargo's patented IVg technology is university-research proven to:
1) Move through the stomach more than 2X faster,
2) Deliver fuel to muscle and the rest of the body more than 2X as fast within 10 minutes after exhaustive exercise leading to:
3) Accelerate glycogen recovery by 168% and
4) A return to higher performance up to 23% greater. The bottom line is that Genr8 Vitargo S2 is the only refueling and recovery product that is university-research proven to be the strategic solution for serious athletes to maximize performance.
Every type of endurance athletes can leverage the patented IVg technology of Vitargo S2. That's because carbohydrate fuel is the common muscle powering and endurance factor for every endurance athlete. Vitargo S2 provides the Fastest Muscle Fuel for:
- Runners (short and long distance)
- Cyclists (Velodrome, Road and Mountain)
- Multi-sport (e.g triathletes)
- Skiers (Downhill and Cross Country)
- Adventure racers
- Xtreme sports
- Wheelchair racers
Because university studies have shown that Vitargo was able to transit out of the stomach twice as fast as ordinary carbohydrates, many of our elite and pro athlete users use Vitargo S2 before and during training/competition or at half-time, on the bench and while transitioning between sports (e.g. Triathletes).
How To Use
Genr8 Vitargo S2 can be used before or during training or competition, or between bouts such as the transition zone during a triathlon; half-time during a match or game; between heats for the fastest muscle refueling and recovery to perform at a higher level again, sooner.
You can use Vitargo S2 any time of the day as a sugar-free component of your favorite shakes and smoothie recipes. Vitargo S2 is a favorite during carbo-loading!
Genr8 Vitargo S2 is a different molecular carbohydrate - follow the directions closely.
What is Vitargo S2?
Vitargo is a patented molecular carbohydrate derived from a special barley starch. S2 means Super Soluble-much easier to mix. Vitargo S2 is unique because it is specially processed to yield a molecular profile that is massively different from the carbs 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 university studies. Part of the secret of Vitargo's IVg 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 sucrose (dextrose).
CARBOHYDRATE MOLECULAR WEIGHT
Vitargo 500,000 to 700,000
Maltodextrin 1,000 to 10,000
Starch syrup 250 to 1,000
Sucrose (Dextrose) 180
But molecular size alone does not make Vitargo the Fastest Muscle Fuel. 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 carbs. Other so-called "high molecular weight" carbs are "weightless" when it comes to proof-they have zero university studies showing superior fuel delivery or performance in humans.
Is Vitargo the same thing as "waxy maize" or high molecular weight starches?
Genr8 Vitargo can be made from most plant starches. What makes Vitargo patented and the Fastest Muscle Fuel is not the source or the molecular size but the unique, patented molecular "handprint", proven in university studies in athletes-not lab rats or test tubes-to greatly outperform other ordinary carbs, from your gut to getting more performance within 2 hours after exhaustive exercise. In fact, the first two studies done on Vitargo used potato starch as the starting source. For several years through 2005, Vitargo was made from a special strain of corn that is higher in starch-waxy maize. This is where other companies have gotten the idea of using different "waxy maize" starches. However, none of these other, non-Vitargo starches have any human studies showing a Vitargo effect. Furthermore, some of these unproven carbohydrate source might even cost less, however some of them, based upon laboratory analysis, are likely to be indigestible, delivering little or no glucose to the blood, liver, and muscles. If you want Vitargo results...get Vitargo S2. It's cheaper to lose.
How does Vitargo work?
Genr8 Vitargo is a molecule that dwarfs sugars (e.g glucose, fructose and sucrose) as well as maltodextrin, the carbs found in ordinary energy and recovery drinks. Vitargo's larger size minimizes its osmolality, which refers to how much water it draws around it. Vitargo's low osmolality allows it to move through the stomach over 2X faster than other carbohydrates, which tend to act more like a sponge in the stomach. Spending less time in the stomach allows Vitargo to be delivered to the part of the intestinal tract-the duodenum-where it is rapidly digested and absorbed. This provides a near immediate surge in energy to blood and muscle, superior to other ordinary carbohydrates. After training or competition is over Vitargo recovers glycogen 168% faster, allowing for an increase in performance up to 23% greater after just two hours when compared to carbohydrates found in ordinary sport and recovery drinks.
Will Vitargo make me feel bloated?
Carbohydrate-based energy and recovery beverages can make you feel bloated. That's because the type of carbohydrate used in ordinary formulas act like sponges drawing water into the stomach, which can causing uncomfortable bloating, distension, and cramping. Vitargo is a patented molecular carbohydrate form proven to empty from the stomach faster and be absorbed into the body more quickly. In fact, university researchers found that Vitargo emptied from the stomach more than 2X faster than a comparable beverage with sugars and maltodextrin, the types of carbohydrates used in many popular sports/energy and recovery drinks and powders.
This may explain why many of our elite and pro athlete users notice no bloating or "heavy stomach" feeling when they use Vitargo S2 before or during training or competition.
Why doesn't Vitargo S2 contain vitamins and other nutrients?
Vitargo S2 doesn't contain vitamins and other nutrients for two reasons. First, the addition of vitamins and other nutrients can impact the ability of VitargoS2 to get fuel to muscle and the rest of the body quicker than other carbohydrate sources. This is the critical factor here. Secondly, in order for vitamins, most minerals and other nutrients to be absorbed and processed internally optimally they be should consumed with real food.
Can't I just eat pasta, bread or other carbohydrate foods to get the same results?
Without question these foods will help refuel muscle and liver glycogen stores. However the question really should be will they refuel and recover glycogen stores as fast as Vitargo S2 and without the bloating and "heavy stomach" feeling? If you are training or competing the next day or sooner you need to choose the carbohydrate source that is research proven to accelerate refueling and recovery after exhaustive exercise. Remember, unless a food or supplement is studied in its actual form you can't be sure it will work the way you want (or the product claims).
What does the "S2" mean?
Genr8 Vitargo is made from barley and is considered a starch, amylopectin to be exact. In general, starches don't mix very well in water. Vitargo S2 is a Super Soluble form that mixes more easily in water than other starches, and even previous forms of Vitargo.
Is Vitargo S2 Sugar Free?
Unlike most other sport drinks and recovery supplements Vitargo is 100% sugar free! That means that you can enjoy Vitargo before, during or after training or anytime and not be concerned about taking in any sugars.
Is Vitargo S2 vegetarian?
Yes. Vitargo is made from barley starch and will fit in any vegetarian nutrition plan.
What is used to sweeten flavored Vitargo S2 versions?
The two flavored versions of Vitargo S2, Tropical Fruit and Juicy Orange, use sucralose as a sweetener. Sucralose is a calorie- and sugar-free artifical sweetener. Vitargo S2 also is available in an unflavored and unsweetened form. This contains just Vitargo in its 100% pure form.
Can I use Vitargo to Carb-Load prior to Competition?
Absolutely, we encourage you to! In fact, using Vitargo S2 during carb-loading is common among elite athletes and Olympic competitors. You can use Vitargo in shakes and smoothies as a sugar-free carbohydrate source. Each scoop provides 35 grams of glycogen-building carbohydrate (or 70 grams/serving). Many athletes use Vitargo S2 between meals to ensure they meet their carbohydrate goals during loading and after exhaustive training so that they can eat normally during regular meals.
Is Vitargo safe?
Vitargo is a safe, natural carbohydrate derived from barley and has been used by athletes world-wide for years.
