Longer lasting fuel for Sport Slow Release Energy Bar contains Isomaltulose, a slowly digested low GI 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 products.New electrolyte complex Our new low GI Energy Bar has also been enhanced with Ocean Minerals. This is our most advanced electrolyte complex, providing you with an invigorating hit of magnesium and over 70 minerals and trace elements, to help you balance your electrolytes during sport. At HIGH5, we’re always looking to use natural ingredients where possible and it doesn’t get more natural than sourcing minerals from seawater.Developed and tested in partnership with BORA – hansgroheAs part of our thorough development work, we’ve also been putting the products to the test with our partner BORA – hansgrohe to ensure the products deliver in the real world, under the toughest conditions.‘My energy levels feel a lot better throughout a ride.

Slow Release Energy Bar is designed to be taken BEFORE and DURING exercise.Please consider the environment and keep the countryside clean by taking your empty bar wrappers with you after use.Enjoy as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Vitamin B6 and Magnesium contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance. Consumption of foods containing isomaltulose instead of other sugars induces a lower blood glucose rise after their consumption compared to sugar-containing foods.
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 NutritionistHow 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-loadingBefore 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 exerciseThere 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.
