SCIENCE

Honey is a natural form of energy, free of stimulants and artificial ingredients. For decades honey research demonstrated that it’s a cornerstone to sports nutrition programs as well as a standalone solution for training and competition. Dense with carbohydrates, specifically fast release glucose and slower release fructose, honey provides a sustained fueling option for athletes. Honey is rich with amino acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. When ingested its antioxidants protect the bloodstream and within cells. Honey does not interfere with the digestive system, removing the risk of illness, bloating and discomfort associated with artificial sweeteners.

The sports science community has conducted over 40 research studies on honey and found it to be a justified option for athletes looking to perform harder and with greater recovery after training. Honey can be used with hydration strategies as well as part of muscle recovery after training.

Manuka Sport conducted extensive research to preserve the natural components of honey while creating a way to make the gels easy to swallow, unlike most sticky or thick products commonly seen today.

Manuka Sport provides an array of sport and lifestyle products to promote the superior fueling and recovery benefits of natural honey. Honey is not a new player in the sports world, but how we have made it convenient and enjoyable.
