When To Use
As part of your active lifestyle, during your training or as the ultimate Recovery bar.
Fuelling for exercise is well understood, but for any workout that lasts longer than 90 minutes it is essential that you fuel for your recovery too. The best way to do this is with 100% natural & delicious real food, with the optimal balance of Carbohydrates and Protein.
Fuelling your recovery means you should aim to rehydrate, replenish glycogen stores & start to rebuild muscle within the first 30 minutes after exercise.
Your muscles store energy in the form of glycogen that is released when you exercise. When you work hard your muscles’ stores of glycogen are depleted & this is known as the Glycogen Debt. To optimise recovery it is essential to top up these stores – the quicker the better. Glycogen stores are built up by eating glucose and that means that carbohydrates are your best friends at this time.
With a Carbohydrate:Protein ratio of 3:1, each 70g Forza bar has plenty of the all-natural essential stuff to kick start your recovery.
Recommended intake: consume a Veloforte Protein bar within 30 minutes of finishing exercise.
Protein repairs & rebuilds muscle tissue after exercise. The 12g complete protein within each Forza bar comes from a combination of nature’s best protein sources… egg whites and almonds.
A complete protein is one which contains all 9 essential amino acids to facilitate muscle repair. With a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score of 1.0 (the highest level possible) our pasteurised egg whites are free from saturated fat & cholesterol, easy to digest and 100% natural.
Almonds provide essential proteins to repair muscle cells & are rich in magnesium, a mineral known to support normal muscle function & combat tiredness & fatigue – making them pretty handy for endurance sports.
