What are the benefits of beetroot?
Each bar is packed with the equivalent of a medium sized beet and therefore the associated dietary nitrates. The health and performance benefits of nitrates are widely researched, you can read in more detail about how nitrates can boost your performance. Dietary nitrates cause a Nitric Oxide boost in the blood which in turn can help lower blood pressure and improve arterial blood flow through vasodilation of capillaries. This enhanced blood flow has been found to aid sporting performance in a range of research trials and studies.
How do I use the POWR bars?
1) For the performance-driven we recommend 1 - 2 bars daily for 3 days before you compete; this is because dietary nitrates have been shown to boost blood nitrite levels and aid performance. Another bar around 2-3 hours before competition will keep blood nitrite at peak levels. Read more about the importance of nitrates for athletes here.
2) Secondly the beetroot Pow® Plant bars are endurance energy bars, so they’re perfect for eating out on a longer ride, run or hike - anytime you need to keep your energy topped up.
