Dosage/ When & How to use?

Known for 100's of years as a high-altitude, energy giving, sweet treat - KMC NRG BAR is a perfect pocket sized addition to any demanding sports or physical activity.

We recommend you consume one 14g block (3 per bar) every 20-30 minutes, before and during exercise to #Recharge.

Suitable for all Sports.

The pocket-sized KMC NRG BAR contains 40g of Carbohydrate per bar. Each bar can be broken easily into 3 blocks of 14g. They contain 4 Essential Electrolytes and B Vitamins (B3, B5, B6 & B12) so they pack a real punch. If you want to #Recharge your performance, you have come to the right place!

Always think ahead and stay on top of your energy levels, eat pro-actively not reactively, to avoid hitting "the wall".

  • Eat well before you start exercising and have one block (14g) within 30 minutes into your activity, take one 14g block every 20-30 minutes thereafter.
  • Our KMC NRG BARs are easy to take, they dissolve in your mouth and leave a refreshing and slightly invigorating aftertaste, but we would still recommend having some water with them. Try taking our KMC ISO MIX in a bottle or pack for hydration!
  • It's a good idea to mix it up with some GEL+ Caffeine energy gels. Caffeine is scientifically proven to boost your physical endurance. (...but don't exceed the recommended GDA).

Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

NO STOMACH TROUBLE

Experience Digestive Comfort with Our Stomach-Friendly Products

Our bars are made using a Top-Secret blend of Natural Peppermint oil a recipe which has been carefully refined over 100 years. An age old herbal remedy for everything. Mint is scientifically proven to help promote digestion, it's pretty good at clearing your airways AND it's even been proven to increase pain threshold.

Collapsible content

What makes your gels easy to digest?

Our Recharged gel formula is much less viscous , without compromising Carbohydrate content, making them less sticky, more easily swallowed and digested. Water is essential in helping digestion as it keeps the food you eat moving along through your intestines and it keeps your intestines smooth and flexible, too. We always recommend taking our gels with water - So why not use our KMC ISO MIX?

Benefits of Mint You will find at the core of all our energy gels the natural flavour of mint. Mint is amazing, it not only tastes great, but has other many other proven beneficial qualities as a soothing herb, an antispasmodic and even increases pain threshold!

Mint has been known for thousands of years as a natural calming and soothing herb. It is made up of 78% menthol which encourages bile to flow into the Duodenum, where it promotes and aids digestion. Mint is also a natural and potent ‘antispasmodic’ which relaxes the action of muscles making digestion and the subsequent release of energy quicker, and also kinder on your stomach.

Mint has even been proven to naturally increase the pain threshold of the human body! (Quite handy when you need that extra edge on your apponents).

IMPROVED PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE

KMC NRG BAR incorporates 4 Electrolytes carefully selected to aid in hydration by replenishing electrolytes lost through sweat, resulting in improved physical performance. Moreover, electrolytes play a crucial role in preventing cramps and fatigue.

Collapsible content

What are the benefits of Electrolytes?

+Electrolytes - KMC NRG GEL contains a blend of 4 Electrolytes designed to aid hydration by replacing salts lost through sweat and improve physical performance. Electrolytes also help avoid cramp and early onset fatigue.

They sound exciting but they are all about balance. Simply, electrolytes are electrically charged minerals which have a key role in many bodily functions, specifically fluid balance. Their charge helps pull water from your blood into your muscles. 

The important electrolytes for athletes are sodium, magnesium, calcium and potassium.

Electrolytes are necessary for a variety of things, like hydration, muscle contraction and blood pressure. Certain electrolytes, like sodium and potassium, are lost in sweat and need to be replaced to maintain the proper fluid balance in the body.
