Professional Supplement's Pure Vitargo
This stuff rocks! I just got a tub last wednesday and used it Post-Workout with some CEE. Man I was so damn swole! I also took another 1/2 serving with my whey about 1/2hr later. I was mad sore thursday after my wednesday workout, but come friday I barely felt a thing! Any of you ever try this stuff?

I am right with you...I absolutely love vitargo. Between the pumps and the fullness, I don't think that I will try any other post WO carb source.

I love this stuff! The fruit punch flavor, WOW! It tastes like it should be bad for me or something it's THAT good!
Recovery-wise and such, I didn't really notice that much different compared to a mix of 75grams of carbs worth of Maltodextrin/Dextrose/Kool-Aid. What I DID notice though, was my malto/dex/koolaid... uhm.. how shall we say... ran RIGHT through me. I mean, EXPLOSIVE.
With the Vitargo, there's no bathroom issues, so I don't feel like an 80-year old geaser rushing off to the bathroom every 5 mins.

Considering that vitargo converts to glycogen in muscle at a higher rate than dextrose, I'm guessing gains should be solid..Originally Posted by avian
I plan to get some vitargo myself, should be interesting to try while cutting..

Add me to the supporters of Vitargo (though I've not used this brand.) No more maltodextrin and/or dextrose for me post-workout.

Hey can you guys link me to a good read about Vitargo? I'm not sure I understand it that well. Thanks

hmmm I thought we were getting away from high carb / sugar post workout drinks these days with the new information that is currently out there.
Guys I seriously think Vitagro is a waste of money unless people are using it maybe for contest glycogen loading.

Yeah...ok, granted this stuff sounds great, but 25 servings of yet another supplement to add to the monthly bill for 46 bucks? I dont know...

True and I agree as well, but vitargo has a different action from simple sugars.. If I wazsn't so busy tearing into this porterhouse, I'd look up some more info on that..Originally Posted by Phoenix rising

True, Oats/Malto are sufficient, but I still have to say that Vitargo works much better for me personally. If I were on a more limited budget, then I'd probably stick to those choices as well, but I figure I might as well enjoy the enhanced benefits while I've got the green to spare.Originally Posted by Kendog

How many times a week do you lift weights? For me, I only lift 3 days a week, so I use one serving 3 times a week. 3x8=24. So I get two months worth out of that for me, and is why I decided to give it a try. Sure, if I ever get strapped for cash, I could drop it, but like I said - the stomach/bathroom issues, it's not that much.Originally Posted by Odessa14

I think PA claims that one should consume this immediately post workout, wait 15-20 minutes, then take in whey. NOT at the same time.....

Yes, i've read that on Avant board recently. I believe I had no significant results from it because i simply took in my post-workout protein shake.Originally Posted by Max32
Cost-wise, its doable if one works out 3 or 4 times a week, not more.

I would say that it would be best used during the last 20 minutes or so of a workout if only doing wieghts; however, if incorporating cardio post workout, I would take it after cardio, then allow 20 minutes before consuming protein. I have gone through a bottle of this stuff and loved it. I even turned Sagi Kalev onto this after my discusions with Art Atwood. Now Sagi has all of his clients using it as well....Originally Posted by Syr
I think it is definitly worth the money. I use it post workout the majority of the time, but pre workout on days where I am lagging. I wonder if it would work well if taken with BCAAs as opposed to standard protein powders....

I've never seen the justification for this claim, could you give me an explanation as to why some people believe this? I get very, very skeptical when I hear all these esoteric diet claims about making sure you take this in at this time, this at this time, don't eat that when you eat this, etc, etc. If it were that complicated how did bodybuilders, natural and otherwise, get huge a ripped before such practices were known? It makes no sense to me. I have trouble believing that mixing cabrs and protein after a workout is going to have significantly less effect than eating them 15-30 minutes apart. You should eat what's required when it's required, which means during the day a balanced diet and pre a post workout a couple shakes to account for the fact that you just burned a boatload of energy and need something that absorbs a little faster.Originally Posted by Zero Tolerance

This intrigue me a lot. I just got the new ergopharm EAA (carb free), All in One, and I plan to try as post workout in place of proteins. Maybe in that case i could have a single drink consisting of Vitargo + EAA?Originally Posted by Max32
The taste is not on par of the best tasting proteins though, its very similar to Vendetta.

But, to the issue at hand, the reason given for the delay after, an in injesting the carb source (post-workout) first, is that it's desired affect on your blood sugar is not instantaneous. That is, the idea of 'shuttling' nutrients (like aminos from a whey protein shake) to your muscles, is best accomplished by first causing the 'spike' or surge and then consuming the protein.
I have no idea if this actually demonstratable or true-in-fact or not. Just that this is the reason given and it is plausible. I personally drink my protein and carb mix (together) as soon as I can post-workout (usually within 10-15 minutes of ceasation of training) and then I eat a whole food meal within an hour or 90 minutes of that.
