From the desk of Art Atwood: I discovered this remarkable supplement at the 2003 Mr. Olympia. I was discussing carb-loading with one of the top pre-contest gurus and wanted to find out just how Mr. Olympia looked so incredible that year. The reigning Mr. O came in the contest HUGE, full, round and dry-as-a bone. Add to these qualities, a drastically reduced stomach distension spelled out a unanimous victory in 2003 & 2004 for Big Ron. I was so astonished by these improvements and even more surprised by the answer. This pre-contest magician laid it out to me plain and simple, he said these enhancements were from loading with Pure Vitargo.
I was so intrigued about this "Vitargo" that I spent the next 2 months researching this unique carb supplement. I started implementing it into my diet, post-workout recovery drink and my pre-contest prep. Need less to say I was immediately hooked! My recovery was phenomenal, my muscles were fuller and harder & I didn’t get that bloated feeling like I usually did from dextrose or glucose polymer formulas.
So what is Pure Vitargo?
Pure Vitargo is a unique patented high molecular weight carbohydrate made from Swedish waxy maize starch. Pure Vitargo is a long chain complex carbohydrate which acts far more favorably than dextrose & maltodextrin (the main ingredients in sports drinks today). Pure Vitargo has a molecular weight that is about 100 times greater than maltodextrin and about 3000 times greater than dextrose. Due to its high molecular weight, Pure Vitargo passes through the stomach very quickly. In doing so it acts like a pump, pulling water and nutrients along with it. In Fact, Pure Vitargo moves through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose and maltodextrin. Dextrose also binds water from the body's reserves (small intestine, blood & muscles) and draws it into the stomach. This explains why so many dextrose users experience stomach discomfort or a bloated feeling. Pure Vitargo, on the other hand, keeps you bloat-free and the muscles super-hydrated.
After using Pure Vitargo for over a year now, here is my take on the MAIN benefits of this ultimate carbohydrate formula:
1. Pure Vitargo reloads muscle glycogen 70% faster than any other carb drink on the market. This helps the muscles recover quicker and makes it an IDEAL post-workout carb drink.
2. Pure Vitargo passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose. With this rapid absorption, depleted muscles will receive vital glycogen in record time. Vital nutrients that are combined with Pure Vitargo are also PULLED into the muscles 80% faster. What this means is that if you combine Pure Vitargo with creatine, glutamine, taurine, NO2 products, BCAA's, or creatine ethyl esters, you'll get almost DOUBLE the absorption! These nutrients can now bypass harsh stomach acids and are super-shuttled into your muscles. Talk about ULTIMATE nutrient transport!
3. Pure Vitargo acts like a pump and pulls nutrients and water into the muscles. This "pump effect" super-hydrates the muscles and helps them expand creating fuller, rounder and harder muscles. Add to this Pure Vitargo's non-bloating properties makes it the IDEAL carb-loader for pre-contest bodybuilders! Why do you think 5 out of the top 10 Mr. Olympia competitors used Vitargo for the 2004 contest? Because it works like magic! (But due to sponsorships and contracts, they can't admit it!)
Now the "secret" is out! I've personally developed a solid relationship with Swecarb AB and they are allowing me to exclusively bring this precious supplement to the masses!
