Vitargo CGL plus whey?

My current post-workout supplementation is 40-50g of whey protein isolate, 5g of glutamine, and 70-80g of maltodextrin. I have read a lot of good things about vitargo, and have just purchased some, and will be giving it a go in a few weeks. Living in the US, vitargo CGL by nutrex is my only option for vitargo. Just wondering if anyones used vitargo, and if mixing whey with it would slow down its absorption at all...any feedback is really appreciated

    It may have a small effect on the transit of whey. Vitargo is supposidly slower released carbs. is this neccesary PWO? My thoughts are that it may be of no more benefit that maltodextrin.

    ah..james. vitargo is actually absorbed faster than maltodextrin. it probably depends from person to person. you need to take carbs with your whey after a workout. as you know. carbs increase blood sugar levels,which increase insulin, which increase the uptake of carbs,amino acids etc into the muscle etc etc.

    Absorbed faster? By what process?

    go read up a bit about it.something to do about it being able to pass through the system faster. anyway james, some people feel it is better than malto dextrin for them, i know a few who swears by this stuff.
    for me when it comes down to price - i will choose malto, if price is no problem then fine try it. it is worth a go anyway. good for the first phase of carbing up. but who am i to argue with an expert like yourself, i've only got firsthand experience and no phd.....

    go read up a bit about it.

    where? You made the claim, and I was only asking! I couldn't find it on their site which is why I asked

    Nor have I which is why I asked. I don't know everything and am willing to learn more. If I ask a question, it may mean I genuinly would like to know and am not trying to trick you.

    I am still not sure about it yet. I have used it and as have said before personally didnt notice anything over and above dextrose. Could potentially be useful with creatine.

    okay , james. they sell it at my gym. you can order on their website. you can actually really feel teh difference when your body is depleted after a good workout.

    it is a complex carb(starch) contains less than0.5 grams of sugar. gets absorbed faster than maltodextrin due to certain properties ie. moleculer weight etc.

    it is very hypotonic with a low osmolality rate, passes through stomach quickly, 70% faster than dextrose i think.
    i've read quite a bit about it, tried it, and it works.

    just do a search. there is a company that makes a product called vitargo cgl (nutrex) they have quite a good informative write up about their product.

    the best thing i can recommend is to try it for yourself and to see if you feel a difference.

    i am on a low carb, high protein diet and i have some after my workout, just to refuel my muscles again - very fast acting.

    its definetly the business for me and gary. its a product we both wish we had found a while ago. no more bloating for me while carbing up on a pre contest diet.

    absorbs 70% quicker than glucose or maltodextrine. we mix ours with our glutamine and our whey for pwo drink. im fuller and pump lasts longer. brill stuff. i posted here about it last week.

    Thanks you have answered my question here:
    it is very hypotonic with a low osmolality rate, passes through stomach quickly, 70% faster than dextrose i think.
    i've read quite a bit about it, tried it, and it works.

    So it's the digestion which speeds it up as opposed to the absorption per se. This makes sense. Thanks. This is partly the reason also why matodextrin is digested/absorbed faster than dextrose, and why it is so odd that MD is often marketed as a 'slow release carb!'
