High5 Slow Release Energy Bar
Slow Release Energy Bar is a low GI energy bar with real fruit and oats for longer-lasting energy. Enhanced with Ocean Minerals for an invigorating hit of magnesium and over 70 minerals and trace elements.

Product Details
During endurance exercise your body relies on carbohydrates for energy to help keep you going. HIGH5 Slow Release Energy Bar contains Isomaltulose, a slowly digested carbohydrate that provides you with a stable and sustained energy supply for longer lasting fuel during sport. This avoids spiking blood sugar levels and the insulin response that comes with other sugar-containing bars.

HIGH5 Slow Release Energy Bar has also been enhanced with a new electrolyte complex, which provides you with an invigorating hit of magnesium.

Naturally sourced from seawater to help you balance your electrolytes, Slow Release Energy Bar gives you all the essentials so you can be at your best.

Dosage and Usage
One of the key benefits of Slow Release Energy is that it slowly provides your muscles with energy. To take advantage of this, it's important to start fuelling early on to drip-feed your muscles throughout your ride or run.

"We use Slow Release products in training for example to reduce the VLamax (lactate building rate) and therefore increase the efficiency of a rider. When racing, the Slow Release Energy products are used in the first 1 or 2 hours of a race when the intensity is rather low, for sparing muscle glycogen and increasing efficiency of fuel supply again."
- Robert Gorgos, BORA – hansgrohe Head Nutritionist

How much should you consume?
When taking Slow Release Energy you should aim for around 60g carbohydrate per hour. This can be from the drinks, bars and gels so you mix it up. For example, you could drink 500ml and take a bar every hour to get to 60g carbohydrate.

Carbo-loading
Before an event or competition, pre-load your muscles by taking Slow Release Energy 90 – 120 minutes before the start. This will keep your energy stores filled for when you need it most.

High intensity exercise
There is a benefit using Slow Release Energy even when you take part in short and high intensity exercise but when you need energy quickly (for example, during high intensity sport), you should take fast-release energy products to provide you a quicker energy boost. When you take part in short and high intensity exercise, you can use Slow Release Energy in the 90-120 minutes before to pre-load your muscles with a steady energy supply. If you are doing an event or race, use Slow Release Energy early on before switching to fast-release energy products during the latter stages when the intensity is higher.
