The Benefits of Fueling with Maple Syrup
Containing all natural carbohydrates, maple syrup provides prolonged, sustained energy rather than offering a quick burst and subsequent crash. It offers a quick pick-me-up in the short term, but is there for you in the long run as well.
When your body is working hard, or even just undergoing daily stress, you produce free radicals that have an inflammatory or damaging effect. This array of polyphenols found in maple syrup have powerful free radical-fighting properties. Foods with similar qualities include berries, green tea, red wine, and flaxseeds.
When you’re training and racing hard, your muscles get beat up. Amino acids help repair that damage and prevent muscle deterioration, ultimately making you stronger.
Easy to digest and quick to absorb. Perhaps best yet, say goodbye to gut-rot which is a common complaint of athletes after consuming typical energy gels, as they are loaded with synthetic flavors and supplements. Plus maple syrup is a cinch to clean up; just rinse with water. Alternative sports gels are like tar to clean up.
I love how the UnTapped products keep my energy consistent through long efforts versus the rollercoaster I’ve experienced with other energy products.Kikkan Randall
