smart fuelling for top training
It’s not just about event day fuelling, getting good nutrition during training is important for keeping you feeling Perky!
The last thing you want is getting an injury or nasty coughs and colds. Perkier bars can help support your immune system and muscle recovery during your training period with vitamins, probiotics and high quality protein.
Perkier’s immune boosting Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate and Nutty Toffee & Dark Chocolate bars are vitamin packed to help support your immune system. Each bar is fortified with 100% RDA of Vitamin C, B12 and D.
Perkier’s Gut Health range contains 2 strains of probiotics, paired with protein for optimal muscle recovery and protein absorption. Read more on how Perkier’s Active Culture bars can support sports performance here!
Why Perkier bars make a great pit stop snack
Ultra running can be just as much about the fuelling as it is the running! We know how important it is that you are fuelling right on the big day, here’s some reasons our bars can be a great choice for your adventures…
- Perkier bars contain 7g-14g of carbohydrate per bar, which can help replenish the glycogen fuel that our muscles use to keep us moving. They can be a nice ‘real’ food edition to gels and liquid carbohydrates.
- Perkier bars contain up to 7g of plant based protein. Protein can help with essential muscle recovery and help mitigate muscle damage, reducing injury risk.
- It’s recommended when running ultra distances you get between 150-400kcal/hr. Perkier bars can help you stay fuelled with nutritious energy throughout the race!
