  • Faster Absorbing Muscle Energy
  • Up to 23% Greater Post-Workout Performance
  • 178% Greater Insulin Release for Anti-Catabolic Action
  • Patented IVg Technology
  • University Proven
Vitargo® S2 is the original super carb, suggested in university studies in humans to be up to 2.3x faster than maltodextrin (homopolysaccharide).* Vitargo's patented IVg technology delivers faster gut transit, glycemic and insulin responses, muscle glycogen refueling, and performance.* No other carb has this span of proof. Vitargo S2 is 100% sugar-free, lab tested gluten-free, and certified undetectable banned substances.
  • Leaves the stomach quicker 2.3x faster than maltodextrin + sugars - in the first 10 minutes after ingestion.1 This leads to less stomach “distress” and faster absorbing muscle energy.
  • Gets into muscle faster 1.7x faster glycogen re/fueling than maltodextrin + sugars after intense, exhaustive workouts.
  • Boosts performance in your next workout Up to 23% greater maximal endurance (average of 10% greater) 2 hours after exhaustive, glycogen-depleting exercise, compared to maltodextrin + sugars.
  • Turns off muscle protein breakdown 1.8x faster/higher insulin response than maltodextrin + sugars, within 10 minutes3 - the most potent, natural way to activate the anti-catabolic signals that spare muscle protein.*< ul>GENR8-Specific Research-this actual product is university proven in HUMANS.

Health Notes

Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel
Bitter orange has traditionally been used as a digestive aid.(more)
Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange contains synephrine, which might promote weight loss. (more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia. There is no clinical trial data to support its efficacy in this regard. The usual amount of tincture used is 2 to 3 ml at bedtime.1, 2

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAlthough historically used to stimulate appetite, bitter orange is frequently found in modern weight-loss formulas because synephrine is similar to the compound ephedrine, which is known to promote weight loss. In one study of 23 overweight adults, participants taking a daily intake of bitter orange (975 mg) combined with caffeine (525 mg) and St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum, 900 mg) for six weeks lost significantly more body weight and fat than the control group.1 No adverse effects on heart rate or blood pressure were found. Bitter orange standardized to contain 4 to 6% synephrine had an anti-obesity effect in rats. However, the amount used to achieve this effect was accompanied by cardiovascular toxicity and mortality.2

          Comments about MISCELLANEOUS Genr8® Vitargo® S2 - Orange:

          There are so many products out there which offer claims to bring your performance throught the roof. In reality, if all these claims were true, they would either A) Make Everyone superathletes and nobody would ever have to train and we would all be world champions in their respective sports, or B) Contain anabolic steroids.

          With all these claims on the market, it is easy to look at Vitargo as being some overpriced powdered pixie dust. Until you use it, you will not realize how much of a performance advantage it provides. Due to having a unique carbohydrate structure, it is able to pass through the stomach faster than any other carbohydrate availible. It is the best recovery product I have ever used. When taken after I train, I mix it with my BCAA, Whey protein isolate, and creatine. Vitargo does the best job of any supplement indelivering these critical anabolic nutrients to the muscle. After doing a hard day of strength training and then using Vitargo, I feel worlds better the next day than if I do not. It is amazing.
          All in all, while there is NO supplement which is going to replace a proper training regimen, Vitargo does an awesome job of supporting your energy and recovery needs which will allow for you to train harder on back-to-back days which will make you a beast!
