Vitargo Post – Made for athletes.
Vitargo® is a unique, patented starch carbohydrate with zero sugars. Vitargo is a large, complex carbohydrate with low osmolality (osmolality is a measure of the number of particles dissolved in a solution — the larger the molecules, the lower the osmolality).
The size of a carbohydrate, or its osmolality, does not define its speed and performance after consumption. These are physical measures that do not translate to metabolic effects. Other large, starch-based carbohydrates (waxy maize starch), or modified waxy maize starch (highly branched cyclic dextrin) have low osmolality yet show very different effects after consumption compared to Vitargo. Vitargo has been the subject of numerous university studies, comparing it to other carbohydrates, in male and female athletes.
Vitargo POST is designed for use after intense exercise or competition. A number of studies suggest that protein intakes greater than 20–25 grams after intense exercise,among athletes weighing less than 90 kg, do not offer any added benefit, with the excess protein being used as an energy source, and excreted in the urine. A serving of Vitargo POST provides 24 grams of protein from a single source—whey protein. To adjust your intake of carbohydrates while using Vitargo POST you can also add our Vitargo Pure (unsweetened and unflavoured), which will add Vitargo carbohydrate, or you can use a smaller amount of Vitargo POST and add your favorite low carbohydrate protein powder to boost the protein content. Vitargo POST can also occasionally be used as a macronutrient replacer when you don’t have enough time to prepare food.
