ExtendSnacks help prevent energy crashes caused by low blood sugar

Endurance AthletesOne effect of exercise is that it uses the energy your body has available.

The energy you burn is measured in calories, just like the food you eat.

If you have not had an adequate amount of calories and carbohydrates prior to exercise this can lead to falling blood sugar levels and, in some cases, could cause exercise induced hypoglycemia (dangerously low blood sugar).

Proper nutrition is a fundamental part of both training and athletic performance. Eating Extend Nutrition snacks can help improve your performance.

Your Body Needs Fuel During Exercise

When you exercise, your body uses it's available energy.  If the body runs out of available energy from food, your blood sugar may begin to drop - and this will diminish your athletic performance.


For most people, the body responds to dropping blood sugar by converting stored glycogen from the liver into glucose for release into the bloodstream.

If you keep working out strenuously after your body has depleted its glycogen stores, you may experience low blood sugar.

If blood sugar falls too low you may feel dizzy, confused, generally bad, or in rare instances even lose consciousness (due to severe hypoglycemia).

Avoiding episodes of low blood sugar is important for athletic performance.

If your body has depleted its glycogen stores, it begins to break down protein to make glucose for energy. The primary job of protein is building and repairing muscle tissue, so using protein for short term energy ends up depriving your muscles.

When the body breaks down protein for energy, it also puts additional stress on the kidneys which have to work harder to rid the bloodstream of byproducts from protein breakdown.

Extend Nutrition makes the leading nutritional snacks for blood sugar management and the Extend Nutrition formula has been clinically proven to help prevent blood sugar from falling rapidly.

Eating any Extend Nutrition product prior to exercise can give you the confidence and peace of mind to work out without worrying about a rapid drop in blood sugar.

Only the Extend Nutrition formula contains an optimal blend of slow-burning carbohydrates, including raw cornstarch, a small amount of healthy fat, combined with protein and fiber to help stabilize blood sugar levels.

(Extend Nutrition does not treat hypoglycemia once it has occurred because the long lasting, slow-burning carbohydrates work gradually over time. If you experience hypoglycemia, it is important to rapidly restore your blood glucose levels with a simple sugar such as a glass of fruit juice, regular soda, or table sugar.)
