CARBO+ LOAD is a carbohydrate (Vitargo®) food supplement, intended to promote recovery after intense and prolonged physical activity. The formulation of the carbohydrate food supplement CARBO + LOAD contains Vitargo®, a carbohydrate patented by the Karolinska Institutet of Stockholm.
Vitargo® is obtained from corn starch, a polysaccharide consisting of long branched chains of glucose: through starch hydrolysis it’s possible to obtain a mixture of glucose chains with high molecular. This peculiarity induces a very rapid gastric emptying, which is ideal to induce a rapid absorption in the intestine in the 2 hours following intense physical efforts. Therefore, the formulation of CARBO+ LOAD based on Vitargo® allows to compensate quickly and efficiently the loss of muscle glycogen induced by intense and prolonged physical efforts and to speed up recovery.
