First Endurance Launches Multi-V Containing Triarco’s Carbogen®

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Wednesday, September 21, 2005 -- First Endurance continues to lead the endurance nutrition category by introducing Multi-V, the first multivitamin that’s clinically proven to improve endurance. This unparalleled formulation contains clinically effective doses of Triarco’s patented ingredient, Carbogen. Other ingredients include ORAC tested antioxidants, Ginkgo Biloba, Green Tea extract and endurance-specific vitamins and minerals. Multi-V is the only multivitamin that contains Carbogen.

Athlete Feedback:

"First Endurance continues to set the standard with the new Multi-V. It has everything I look for in a multi vitamin and more. Multi-V assures me that I am getting the nutrients I need to train at full-capacity.”
Levi Leipheimer (Gerolsteiner Professional Cycling Team)

“I'm very impressed with Multi-V. I began taking it simultaneously with the beginning of my biggest, most demanding block of training for Hawaii Ironman. My recovery has been excellent. I find myself quite eager to train on a day-to-day basis Multi-V has kept me feeling surprisingly good during a time when motivation can often dip and the threat of getting sick is at it’s peak. I am confident Multi-V will help me get through my toughest, most important block of training healthy and ready to race in Kona.”
Michael Lovato (Ironman Champion)

“I feel stronger and better recovered after a few days on Multi-V.”
Healther Gollnick (3X Ironman Champion)
