Genki Bar with Lentils for Improved Performance
Genki Bar is made with the highest quality ingredients to maximize performance, nutrition and health. Lentils are one of the best sources of a low glycemic index carbohydrate. This provides a controlled fuel source for muscles during activity, crucial to overall performance.
This key component of low glycemic index carbohydrate combined with a low fat content and high quality/significant amount of protein, allows for optimal absorption and utilization by the body.
PLUS… it tastes great! My athletes, to a person, have all felt the benefit of the Genki Bar while appreciating the taste. I have used it with many types of athletes ranging from ultra endurance to power athletes before, during and even after training/events depending on their assessed needs. Genki Bar can have a role at any one of these times depending on the need of the athlete.

Sport performance bars are a convenient way to fuel the body before training sessions and races. They can also replenish depleted glycogen stores to improve recovery, particularly when a pre/post meal is not possible.
However, not all bars are created equal when it comes to how the body metabolizes the ingredients. Recent scientific trials on 11 well-trained athletes showed that consuming a Genki Bar before exercise enhanced exercise metabolism.
Eat 1 to 2 Genki Bar® 30 minutes to 60 minutes before your event with a glass of water for optimum metabolic efficiency. For maximum recovery we recommend you consume Genki Bar® within 60 minutes after your event.
