product description
PowerBar Recovery Bar is a convenient source of recovery nutrition, specially formulated to jumpstart muscle recovery and help restore muscle lipids depleted during endurance exercise. Replenishing depleted stores are an important part to recovering properly and becoming a stronger athlete and POWERBAR Recovery Bar helps you get to that goal.

Athletes need to consume carbohydrates during recovery to replenish glycogen fuel stores that get depleted during exercise. Protein is helpful because it supplies amino acid building blocks needed for muscle tissue repair and the building of new muscle tissue in response to exercise. Unless carbohydrates intake during recovery is very high, carbohydrates and protein consumed together are better at boosting the rate at which glycogen stores are replenished than carbohydrates alone. The reason for this is that the combination is very effective at boosting insulin levels. Insulin is a natural anabolic hormone that helps the body build and recover after exercise. Thus, carbohydrates and protein provide the necessary building blocks to promote recovery, and when consumed together, they can help speed the recovery process.

Recovery Bar Features:
  • 30 grams carbohydrates to kick off glycogen replenishment
  • 12 grams high quality protein, complete in essential amino acids, to help rebuild muscle tissue
  • 9-10 grams of fats to help restore muscle lipids depleted during endurance exercise
  • Flavors: Cookies & Cream Caramel Crisp (CNC) and Peanut Butter Caramel Crisp (PBC)
Shipping weight: 0.2 lbs.

These always seem to arrive having been melted at some point along the way. This means when you open them the chocolate coating is just crumbs and dumps all over the place. I presume this is happening prior to arrival at TriSports warehouse as I will get one package that's clearly been melted (the bars are misshapen) and one that hasn't. Otherwise they are great but don't try to eat one in the car after a workout.
Pros:
Tastes Good, Tasty, Quickens Recovery Time
Cons:
Usually Messy
Best Uses:
After Workout

Nutrition-wise, I know these bars are "good" for me, but that part matters less to me than the fact that they are really pretty tasty. I'll snack on one in the middle of the day sometimes, and even though there are a few more fat grams in there than I'd like for snacking, it tides me over for a few hours. Plus, they are a great treat after a swim.
