Powerbar Energy Gel

Powerbar energy gel is from Powerbar. Powerbar chooses to distinguish themselves from their competitors in a couple of ways.

  • Powerbar’s products contain 4 times the amount of sodium as compared to their leading competitors
  • Powerbar has a 2:1 glucose to fructose blend in their products. This improves endurance performance than glucose alone.

The body loses a lot of sweat during any endurance activity such as long distance running, cycling, etc. Losing sweat amounts to losing salt or sodium and this sodium needs to be replenished — else it will lead to muscle cramps. Muscle cramping is experienced by many endurance athletes towards the end of their races. As an example, a long distance runner may experience muscle cramping during the last 5-10 miles of a marathon race.

Sodium can be replaced using energy gels or also using sports drinks which will contain sodium needed to be replenished during exercise.

The products from Powerbar come in various forms :

  • Power bar energy gel
  • Powerbar energy blasts
  • Powerbar energy bites
  • Powerbar ProteinPlus bites
  • Powerbar sports drinks
  • Powerbar energy bars

Powerbar Energy Blasts

Powerbar energy blasts are energy chews as opposed to energy gels. Some athletes prefer to use energy chews for several reasons. Unlike energy gels which need to be consumed once you open a packet, these chews can be consumed one at a time. Some atheletes prefer the taste of energy chews than that of energy gels.

They are available in four different flavors:

  • Cola
  • Lemon
  • Raspberry
  • Strawberry Banana
