Whether you are a pro athlete or a weekend warrior, we are all looking for maximum results. All the hard work in the world will not help us reach our peak performance if we don’t put the right fuel in our body. This fuel is necessary for training and competition. The fastest racecar is useless if you run out of gas, or even worse, if you put the wrong type of gas in the tank. A combination of simple and complex carbohydrates along with electrolytes, healthy fats and protein are required to provide a quick boost of energy along with sustained energy for the duration of your exercise.
-25 grams of carbohydrates
High-intensity training and competition is fueled primarily by carbohydrates
-10 grams of all natural sugars derived primarily from organic honey.
The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. Honey has also been found to keep blood sugars more constant than other types of sugars. This prevents crashing.
-More Potassium than a banana
Potassium is an important mineral that functions as an electrolyte. It helps regulate fluid balance, nerve signals, and muscle contractions. Fluid balance is affected by electrolytes, mainly potassium and sodium. Eating a potassium-rich diet can help you maintain a good fluid balance. Fluid loss causes the water levels in our muscle cells the shift causing muscles to cramp during exercise.
