Extended blood sugar control helps sustain athletic performance

Man working out in a gymHave you ever “hit the wall” during a workout because you lack energy?

It is common to lack energy during strenuous exercise if you aren’t getting the right nutrition for energy and fitness.

In order to excel in physical activities we need energy, which comes from the food that we eat.

Muscles and organs cannot function on one nutrient alone.

The best way to fuel your body is with a well balanced diet designed to keep blood glucose levels in healthy ranges (glucose is the body’s main energy source.)

Carbohydrates are the body’s most important fuel source.

Carbohydrates are converted during digestion to glucose which is used both for immediate energy and stored energy in the body as glycogen. (If your body already has enough glucose in the blood than it will convert some to glycogen for storage.)

As your glycogen stores are used up, blood glucose levels fall causing a decline in performance and resulting in exhaustion. It is therefore important that your blood sugar (glucose) levels are stabilized to maintain the energy needed to support a high level of physical activity.

Extend Nutrition uses the only formula clinically proven to help stabilize blood sugar levels for up to 9 hours – this helps prevent the body from depleting glycogen stores during demanding activity.

Slow conversion to glucose helps fuel athletic performance

Sustain your energy – don’t spike it!

Carbohydrate gels have become popular as a source of energy during workouts, marathons, triathlons or endurance sports –but those quick bursts of glucose just spike your blood sugar, with very little nutritional quality.

Most carb gels contain 10g of simple sugar or more!  

You wouldn’t bring a sugar bowl to the gym! So, why count on simple sugar during a workout?

Extend Nutrition offers a unique alternative that sustains athletic performance.

Eating any Extend Nutrition snack as a pre workout snack provides you with long-lasting energy, not just a quick burst. Your body burns carbs during exercise, but because Extend Nutrition snacks convert so slowly they keep releasing a baseline of glucose while you exercise to help maintain peak performance.

Performance during an event or activity is affected both by the foods that are consumed in the days prior to the event and the foods consumed immediately before or during the event. Foods like Extend Nutrition that contain a modest amount of carbohydrate, are low in fat and moderate in protein are the best choice for pre-activity snacks.

Any Extend Nutrition Snack is a great choice for sustained athletic performance.

Take ExtendBar, for example – it’s convenient, contains 11-12 grams of lean protein, is low fat (2-3 g), and contains 21 grams of carbohydrate with only 0-1 gram of simple sugar (nutritional values vary slightly by flavor.)

You may even spot Extend Bar on the LPGA or PGA Tour, where professional golfers use Extend Bar to help maintain stable blood sugar throughout their round.
