High 5 Protein Bar
Contains an exact mix of protein and carbohydrate. The protein content is 27and#37;. Research shows that protein and simple carbohydrate act together post exercise to produce a high insulin response. This insulin response facilitates faster glycogen replacementandnbsp;and#40;carbohydrate stored in the musclesand#41; in the crucial 2 hour post exercise recovery window. The protein composition is designed to be absorbed quickly into the body and broken down to give an amino acid pool in the blood stream about 1 hour after consuming the bar. This coincides with the start of protein synthesis, which is suppressed until 1 hour after exercise ends. The high insulin response also acts as a trigger for synthesis. Protein Bar has been designed to be easily eaten even when you are dehydrated, which is likely post exercise. As well as simple carbohydrate the bar contains additional complex carbohydrate for sustained glygogen replacement.
