Humans are meant to metabolize fat as their primary aerobic energy source. For over 20 years VESPA has pioneered results driven performance. VESPA is a fat-burning catalyst which works with your body's natural metabolic pathways.
It is not a significant source of calories nor an electrolyte replacement nor an “energy” drink so you won’t feel a sugar high or a caffeine buzz (You won’t feel the crashes either). VESPA works by optimizing your body’s ability to derive its energy from a readily available and plentiful source to enhance athletic performance, recovery & overall health.
VESPA does not “boost” performance but optimizes your natural potential. VESPA’s effects are subtle and largely un-noticed in the conventional sense. While the direct effects of tapping in to your natural fuel stores are key to endurance/stamina, the indirect effects are just as critical. The shift to beta-oxidation and ketosis also produces:
While carbohydrates provide fast energy they should not be the principle energy source for the aerobic spectrum of your exercise. VESPA recommends “strategic” use of carbohydrates to maximize the benefits and minimize the issues related to their over-consumption. In fact, one way to notice how VESPA “works” is the carbohydrates will exert a more powerful, more sustainable boost, using less.
VESPA is a synergistic blend of naturally-occurring, minimally processed ingredients from bees & wasps (Honey, Propolis, Royal Jelly, Wasp Extract). The key fat metabolizing catalyst is the wasp extract peptide derived from the Asian Mandarin Wasp (Vespa mandarina), one of nature’s most potent endurance & performance animals. This wasp flies between 70-100 KM per day in search of food and carries half its body weight to its entire body weight in food back to the colony to feed to the larvae. The adult wasp does not eat this solid food, rather, it receives a liquid containing the wasp extract peptide from the larvae in a symbiotic relationship called trophallaxis. This allows the the adult wasp to metabolize the fats stored in its thorax. In turn, the adult wasp feeds the larvae a food ball usually composed of other insects the wasp has preyed upon and subsequently chewed into a food ball using its powerful mandibles. Because all animal cells are similar across species the ingredients of VESPA exert their fat burning influence in human cells.
VESPA JUNIOR, is recommended for youth and athletes weighing under 160 pounds / 72 kilograms. VESPA JUNIOR is formulated as a "ready-to-go" 2.7 fluid ounce / 80 ml. drink taken 30-45 minutes prior to commencing physical activity and every 2 hours for activities of greater than 2-3 hours in duration.
Many athletes prefer to use VESPA JUNIOR as a "boost" immediately at the start of competition and/or every 1-1.5 hours or at T1 & T2 for Triathlons and Aid Stations for ultra-endurance events due to its balanced blend of fat-burning wasp extract and fast-acting Orange Juice.
