MĀNUKA HONEY FOR A NATURAL SPORTS BOOST
Kim Bulder, 02 October 2019

If you’re a sportsperson - whether weekend warrior, a daily gym-goer or hard core athlete - you’ll know there’s often a need for an energy boost to get you going, or to sustain you while training .                                                                

You may already be familiar with the various sports gels and energy or recovery products on the market, however many people are not aware that most of these products contain highly processed refined sugars and carbohydrates, preservatives, colours, flavours and other synthetic ingredients that can be pretty tough on the body.

In contrast, pure Mānuka honey is a 100% natural energy shot, just as nature intended. The sugars in Mānuka honey are mostly glucose and fructose. Glucose is absorbed faster to provide a quick acting energy boost, while fructose has a slower more sustained effect on blood sugar levels to support energy needs over a longer time. This means you get a more prolonged energy lift without the crash. 

Importantly, high quality honey contains naturally occurring trace nutrients and antioxidants which aid the body’s absorption and utilisation of sugars, and support the body during exercise. Refined sugars and carbohydrates have all this stripped away, so all you get is a sugar hit without the supporting nutrients the body needs to metabolise sugar and to manage blood sugar levels in a healthy way.1

Sport places high demands on the body, so it makes sense to choose natural, wholefoods that support the body. Mānuka honey is a great natural energy boost for pre-workout, during prolonged activity and endurance sports, and to aid post-workout recovery.

Mānuka Honey single serve snappacks are perfect for sportspeople, or anyone looking for a natural wholefood energy boost on the go. Super convenient, they fit easily in your pocket, bag or in the kid’s lunchboxes.

Simply snap and squeeze for a teaspoon of delicious premium Mānuka honey, or dissolve into water to make a completely natural replenishing drink.
