The PowerBar Performance Energy Bar is a great choice for use before and during training sessions and high-intensity competitions like running, cycling, and swimming. It's formulated with PowerBar C2MAX dual-source energy blend, a 2:1 glucose to fructose blend found to deliver 20 to 50 percent more energy to muscles than glucose alone and improve endurance performance by 8 percent. Performance Energy Bars also contain 200 milligrams of sodium--a key electrolyte lost in sweat that is associated with muscle cramping in some athletes. Performance Energy Bar At a Glance: Provides more energy to muscles with C2MAX Contains 200 milligrams of sodium, a key electrolyte The original energy bar Low in fat, with 8 to 9 grams of protein per bar No preservatives or artificial flavors Contains 200 milligrams of sodium to replenish electrolytes and prevent fatigue. C2MAX formula provides your muscles with 20 to 50 percent more energy. Energy to Fuel Your Workout Fueling up right can make a big impact on how you feel and perform, no matter what you're tackling. PowerBar Performance Energy Bars are high in easily digestible carbs to top off your muscle glycogen stores before exercise. Each bar contains 3.5 to 5 grams of fat and small amounts of fiber. High-fat and high-fiber foods before exercise can slow down the gastric emptying rate, leaving you more susceptible to stomach discomfort during exercise. Choosing a sports nutrition product like PowerBar Performance Energy bars before and during exercise will give you the energy your muscles need for optimal performance and leave you less likely to experience stomach discomfort. Eat one bar 30 to 60 minutes before exercise, and for events lasting more than 60 minutes, eat one to two bars per hour during exercise. How C2MAX Works Athletes and exercise enthusiasts need to eat adequate amounts of carbohydrates on a daily basis in order to load up on muscle fuel stores of glycogen before and after exercise. You also need carbs during exercise in order to delay the onset of fatigue. PowerBar Performance Energy Bars provide maximum energy delivery with PowerBar C2MAX dual-source energy blend. Transportable carbohydrates--the combination of glucose and fructose found in C2MAX--have been research supported to outperform glucose alone. Through an ever-growing list of published studies, researchers have made a compelling case for transportable carbohydrates as the fuel of choice during endurance exercise. Benefits in comparison to glucose alone include increased delivery of carbohydrate fuel to working muscles; enhanced emptying of fluids from the gut and improved delivery of fluids to the bloodstream; better reliance on ingested carbs as fuel in difficult, high-temperature conditions; and increased endurance performance. This groundbreaking research on transportable carbohydrates is the basis for the muscle-fueling innovation known as PowerBar C2MAX dual-source energy blend. Seeing the incredible performance potential in this cutting-edge research, and, in fact, collaborating with the researchers pioneering this scientific work, PowerBar scientists have incorporated the research-supported 2:1 ratio of glucose and fructose into PowerBar sports nutrition product intended to fuel and hydrate athletes during higher intensity exercise.
