Energy bar - Fast energy supply on the go
Anyone who practices training does not come from training alone. A large portion of it makes a healthy diet. In particular, the ratio of proteins, carbohydrates and fats plays an important role. Carbohydrates are the energy sources for the body. They release the insulin secretion, which positively influences the blood sugar level. In order to bring full performance during training, a sufficient carbohydrate intake is therefore crucial. Especially complex carbohydrates (long-chained) are recommended for athletes. They provide constant and sustained energy to the body, which can last for several hours. These are mainly found in legumes, rice and whole grains. But even short-chain carbohydrates are suitable for consumption. Due to the glucose they contain, they can be used very quickly and provide the body with energy. In particular, before training or immediately thereafter, a rapid energy intake is of great importance. For example, foods with short-chain carbohydrates are bananas or wheat products. But what do you do to get carbohydrate-rich through stress, work or on the road? There are so-called energy bars for this problem. Similar to protein bars, they provide a percentage of carbohydrates, proteins and important minerals and vitamins. They are filling the stomach, which makes them a suitable meal replacement. In contrast, however, the carbohydrate content of an energy bar is much higher. One does not want muscle growth, as in protein bars with high protein content, but the energy reserves of the body.
The powerblock energy hedgehog offers a combination of simple and complex carbohydrates and contains 30g of oatmeal. It provides the body with energy both fast and long term. As a meal in between, as well as immediately before and after training, it is ideal for this and at the same time provides valuable proteins that support muscle building and maintenance. The additional fiber ensures a long-lasting satiety and thus prevents food cravings. Powerblock in chocolate, vanilla and strawberry is a time-saving way to recharge your batteries for strenuous training days.
