Utilizing an ingredient engineered by nature as opposed to in a laboratory has its benefits, like higher quality and no additional flavoring or coloring. Honey Stinger uses honey, a natural form of energy and antioxidants, as the main carbohydrate source for all products. Research in endurance athletes has proven that a mixture of carbohydrates is better tolerated by the body, prevents fatigue and enhances performance more than a single carbohydrate form. Honey is considered a combination of carbohydrates, containing the natural sugars fructose and glucose that work together to be quickly and easily digested.
In addition, honey’s low glycemic properties have been scientifically proven to increase athletic performance by providing a sustained energy boost that allows blood sugar levels to remain constant throughout activity without a high insulin spike and crash.
MORE VERSATILE THAN OTHER ENERGY GELS
Honey Stinger Organic Energy Gels may be consumed straight from the packet before or during activity, spread on toast, stirred into tea, or anything else you can think of. All flavors mix well with water to make a natural energy drink.
Consume 5-10 minutes before activity. When consumed before activity, energy is immediately released into the body and is absorbed into the system at a steady rate throughout exercise.
Consume every 45 minutes – 1 hour for energy maintenance. When consumed during activity, honey helps muscles remain nourished longer through a steady release of energy, delaying fatigue.
