Because Extend Nutrition products convert to blood sugar over 9 hours – more slowly than any other product – they can supply the energy you need for even the most physically demanding activity. And Extend Nutrition products continue providing energy for several hours after, while your body works to adjust its blood sugar needs back to a normal level.

Because Extend Nutrition products doesn’t raise blood sugar levels significantly, you won’t see a spike in insulin levels, so your body will be more likely to burn fat for fuel. They will also keep you going strong long after exercising.
