Sport Bars and Gummies

Description

The amount of carbohydrates that are available for energy is a key factor determining performance in endurance and high-intensity intermittent exercise. Therefore, during exercise where carbohydrates are depleted, it is important that you take on additional fuel to maintain performance and avoid fatigue. This ensures that blood glucose level is maintained during exercise and restores muscle glycogen.

The Etixx Energy Sport Bar contains approx. 29 g of carbohydrates and is suitable for both before and during exercise. It can be used before exercise as part of a carbo-loading strategy to ensure that muscle glycogen stores are maximised prior to an event. Athletes preparing for prolonged, strenuous competition should aim to eat a diet rich in carbohydrates in the days prior to their event and the Etixx Energy Sport Bar is a great snack to include in this.

During events where there is significant depletion of muscle glycogen, carbohydrates need to be consumed to sustain performance and minimize fatigue. Carbohydrate stores are depleted afterapprox. 90 minutes of exercise.

How much carbohydrate should i aim for?

  • Exercises <1h:not necessary to consume carbohydrates during exercise
  • Exercises 1-2h: 30g carbohydrates per hour exercise. (~1 energy bar)
  • Exercises 2-3h: 60g carbohydrates per hour exercise. (~2 energy bars)
  • Exercises >2.5-3h: up to 90g carbohydrates per hour exercise.(~up to 3 energy bars)

The Energy nougat Sport Bar is enriched with honey and almonds and contains 29g of carbohydrates per bar. So it provides the energy needed to perform optimally. Magnesium, which contributes to a normal energy metabolism and reduces fatigue, has also been added.


Who can benefit from using Etixx Energy Nougat Sport Bar

The Etixx Energy Nougat Sport Bar can provide benefits to any athlete that needs carbohydrates to maintain performance. They provide long lasting energy supply due to the carbohydrates they include. They contain complex carbohydrates which are broken down and digested slower and therefore energy is released over a longer period of time. They can be easily digested and are therefore ideal for consumption during endurance events such as marathons, triathlons or cycling sportives. They can also be useful for team sport athletes looking to take on some carbohydratewhen they get a break (i.e. football- at half time). Furthermore, the Etixx Energy Nougat Sport Bar is great for any athlete looking to increase carbohydrate in their everyday diet and can also be a great way of topping up carbohydrate stores on days when athletes have training for multiple hours on end.
