Multi-V is the first multinutrient vitamin that’s clinically proven to enhance endurance for athletes such as cyclists and triathletes. The nutrients in Multi-V have been shown to effectively protect athletes from the stresses of exercise and to improve endurance. Multi-V is the only multivitamin that contains Carbogen, a patented enzyme blend that’s been shown in clinical studies to improve carbohydrate utilization and increase time to exhaustion significantly. Multi-V is unlike any other multivitamin available thanks to its addition of special ingredients other than vitamins and minerals to address the unique requirements of endurance athletes. In addition to having the highest-quality, most bio-available vitamins and chelated minerals available, this special endurance formula delivers clinically effective doses of enzymes, Iron, Green Tea, Ginkgo Biloba and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Multi-V is also formulated with Ferrochel Iron- a highly bioavailable source of Iron which is non-toxic and does not affect the absorption of minerals, like other Iron sources do. First Endurance is the sole licensee for Carbogen in the endurance sports market. Clinical studies on elite cyclists showed Carbogen breaks down multi-chain carbohydrates into simple glucose. This is important for endurance athletes because glucose is readily accessible and useable for working muscles. What’s really unique about Carbogen is that even with this fast breakdown of carbohydrates, there is no effect on insulin. With no insulin spike, your blood sugar remains elevated for many hours so it can fuel working muscles and improve performance.
