Have you got on the #Barup bandwagon yet? If you haven’t tried our Energy Bars yet then you are missing out!
Here we take a look at why they are so good, what they have in them and why and how to use them.
Like all of our Produrance products, we have formulated each of our Energy Bars to contain 30g of instant and sustained release carbohydrates to make it easy for athletes to know exactly how much carbohydrates they are consuming. This also means you get the instant energy hit you need while also getting slow released energy to help you keep going when you need it the most and optimize your endurance performance.
Our bars contain Sodium which has been shown to be beneficial for athletes exercising for longer than 1 hour, as it minimizes hyponatremia (low blood sodium), dehydration, improves taste and stimulates thirst. When sodium is present, absorption of fluids that enter the intestines is more rapid. This rapid water uptake in the small intestine will help to maintain extracellular fluid volume and aid carbohydrate absorption
When developing our Energy Bars, we spent a lot of time making sure the bars were easy to chew while out training and racing. Making sure they didn’t stick in your mouth or leave a grainy, hard to get out of your teeth, mess. They are soft, moist and easy to chew, in an oversized, easy to tear wrapper, making them the ideal Energy Bar for when you are on the go.
So how can you use Produrance Energy Bars while training or racing? Here are just 3 ways to incorporate Energy Bars into you racing or training to get the ideal 90g of carbohydrates per hour.
- Consume 1 bar during every 20 minutes during exercises with 150-250ml of water or Prodrate
- Consume 1 bar, plus 2 Energy Gels with 450-750ml of water every hour of exercise.
- Consume 1 bar, plus 1 Energy Gel with 1 scoop mix of Produrance in 600-1000ml of water every hour of exercise
There are many possible combinations of our Produrance products you can use to make sure you receive the ideal 90g of carbohydrates per hour, so be creative and take your nutrition to the next level.
