Juicy apricots, crunchy almonds, aromatic fennel & the power of complete protein makes the Forza the optimal workout refuelling bar.
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 you best friends at this time.
Each Forza bar is packed full of apricots, orange juice, agave nectar, cane sugar & honey…100% natural rapidly available carbohydrates to restore those tired muscles.
Our apricots are unsulphured so are naturally darker & sweeter, full of essential carbohydrates, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. Fennel is a great source of calcium, potassium & iron & is well known for it’s anti-inflammatory powers, perfect to calm muscle soreness after prolonged exercise.
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.
We believe that everything is better if it’s natural. No cardboard, no digestive issues…#refuel better
