Easy to Digest - 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.

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

+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.

EFFECTIVE ENERGY DELIVERY

+B Vitamins - The KMC B Vitamin complex (3,5,6 and 12) is designed to breakdown carbohydrates more effectively into energy and maintain nerve and blood cell functionality. Creating a more effective energy delivery system with added benefits.

COMPACT DESIGN

An efficient design removes excess air and water, which means less packaging and more efficient dispatch. These small differences lead to significant carbon emission reductions at scale.

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 (6 per bar) every 25-30 minutes, before and during exercise to #Recharge.

Suitable for all Sports.

KMC NRG BAR contains 83g of Carbohydrate per bar. Each bar can be broken easily into 6 blocks of 14g. They also 4 Key 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).

Wow

Tried this today and it was fabulous! Ran 9 miles on my half marathon training and felt quite tired half way through. Took this and wow! Felt great and full of energy all the rest of the way.

KMC NRG Bar Bundle

Fantastic energy bars for when out hiking in the hills.

One major issue!

Sooooo I bought these as I love KMC and have been looking for something to boost my energy and electrolytes whilst mountain biking. The issue is... They are too good and I end up eating them at home! Product development... Some kind of device to prevent me just scoffing them whilst not actually biking!

Refreshing

I love these bars, they have a very high carb content which means you can carry less on long runs. I'm currently testing them on long runs as I usually get stomach issues during ultras and so far so good. My only complaint it the size of the bar, its quite long and flat so they don't fit in pockets very well, If they made them smaller and thicker with individual blocks they would be perfect.

5.0

Great product

I've been using these bars on training runs and ultras for nearly a year and they are great. Easy to get down on the move and no tummy issues.

4.0

Energy boost

This product melts in the mouth and gives just the boost needed to go the extra mile (or two)

When you need a boost….

My partner, running friends and I use this as an energy boost on the go, melts in the mouth, refreshing and gives us the sugar high we need to keep on going

5.0

Every day to Ultra Marathon

I cannot recommend these bars enough. I use them to boost my energy on a usual day but mainly use them on Marathons, Ultra marathons and training runs. Easy to store and easy to digest gives you a much needed energy boost plus refreshes your mouth too which is an added bonus.
