Vitargo® S2™ is a patented, engineered starch, a sugar-free carbohydrate for fueling (before and during) and recovery (after) for any intense training or competition. Vitargo S2 is virtually bloat-proof, produces a 2x faster glycemic (blood sugar) rise, and promotes 1.7x faster muscle carbohydrate (glycogen) and performance recovery (no other starch product has this evidence, especially waxy maize or special "homopolysaccharides").
Vitargo S2 can be made into a drink, a gel/pudding, or frozen, and can be mixed with any other low to zero carb nutrition product (especially pre-workout and protein products). Each batch of Vitargo S2 is certified free of banned substances by the only lab that is WADA experienced in North America, BSCG.org . GENr8™, Proof Before Promises™.

Vitargo S2 is a different engineered carbohydrate – please follow directions closely:
In a Shaker Bottle:
Add 10-12 oz. of water (room temp. is best) to a large shaker bottle. Add 2 level scoops of Vitargo® S2 and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. Add an additional 10-12 oz. of cold water and shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds.
In a Blender:
For best results add 2 level scoops into a blender with water while it's blending at low-medium.
PRE- (before) or INTRA- (during) training or competition:
Mix 1 or 2 level scoops of Vitargo S2 as stated above. Feel free to add your favorite pre-workout, amino acid, electrolytes, or other non-carb supplement. Note that Vitargo is a fractionated STARCH and is thicker/more viscous than other powdered drinks.
POST- (after) training or competition, or for glycogen loading:
Drink 2 level scoops as soon as possible after finishing. Ideally, mix 20-25 grams of a protein source. After longer training/competition (>1-1.5 hrs) take another 1-2 scoops 30-90 minutes later.
Ingredients: Fractionated barley amylopectin (Vitargo S2)[Source: Europe], natural flavor, citric acid, natural color [grapeskin], sucralose
