Maple syrup is a 100% natural product that has not been transformed, that contains no artificial colors and no preservatives. It contains a high volume of carbohydrates which are easily metabolized in glucose by the body during effort, providing the energy needed to perform and to increase resistance. After workout, it helps restore carbohydrates reserves rapidly.
Being a source of potassium, calcium and magnesium, maple syrup is a must because these three minerals have an important role in muscle contraction and release. It is also an excellent source of manganese and zinc, two minerals necessary for muscle recovery.
Maple syrup is a natural energy source that contains lots of antioxidants. A total of 63 antioxidant compounds have been found in this bio-organic cocktail. Those nutrients have the capacity of neutralizing free radicals which protects cells from the oxidizing stress generated during long term effort. In other words, the intake of antioxidants before and after workout reduces muscular fatigue and eases recovery.
RE KARB Energy syrups are composed of simple ingredients like maple syrup. Each flavor contains 100 mg of sodium from sea salt to increase electrolytes levels, to assure a sufficient intake during long term efforts.
Offered in an easy to carry and convenient package, Rekarb energy syrups provides you with an affordable, efficient and exempt of chemicals way of fueling up during races. Being less viscous than conventional gels, they are easy and quick to swallow. They don’t contain transformed sugars like maltodextrin which is hard to digest and give a lot of discomfort to many athletes. Finally and not to neglect, it has a heavenly taste! The bad taste of refueling is now part of history!
RE KARB is now available at Runners’ Choice!
