    Just bought some of this to throw in with my intra. Who's using it? What do you notice from it/ benefits?

    More energy? Feel fuller?

    Cheers!

    I ordered the one from bulk powders same serving size I think. Have to have a look for this study then, why would it be useless though??

    I like it when bulking cause it tastes nice and adds easy cals. Have I ever noticed a difference? Nah

    Supposedly digested faster - most report being able to drink 100g+ without stomachs bloating and discomfort compared to other carbs like maltdextrin or dextrose etc which seems to be the biggest selling point

    Apart from less bloat, there won't be much real world differences between it and cheaper carbs. I prefer vitargo tbh.

    Had a look at the vitargo, looks decent. Might give it a run after this.

    Think I'm gonna have to get some of this when I start having to force the calories down in a few weeks

    I only wanna increase carbs around training and dextrose intra makes me feel terrible with bloating etc.

    Vitargo® consists of much larger carbohydrate molecules than other sugar-based carbohydrates such as Dextrose, Fructose, Sucrose and Maltodextrin; which are often the preserve of the mainstream sports drinks you find in various gyms and supermarkets. These larger molecules ultimately enable Vitargo® to move through the stomach 80% faster than the aforementioned products. The result of this is that Vitargo® is absorbed extremely quickly and provides almost instant energy. Furthermore when Vitargo® is consumed after training or competition, it replenishes muscle glycogen levels 70% faster than other sports drinks. What’s more Vitargo® is also 100% sugar-free!

    Vitargo® is produced from barley starch. Barley starch is naturally occurring in foodstuffs such as cereals and grains. These products will not however have anywhere near the same properties as Vitargo® due to the patented process by which it is produced.

    BENEFITS OF VITARGO®
    • 100% Pure Carbohydrate
    • Fast Release Source of Carbohydrate
    • Rapid Absorption makes it ideal to use pre/intra/post workout
    • 100% Sugar Free
    • Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
    • Gluten Free
    • Ideal to use when carb loading

    Lol I love me some skittles.

    Only use it if you want to get really JACKED!!!
    Don't use it if you just want to be average every day big.
    This will turn you into a superfreak in no time at all!
