enerGi Bio Bars are a delicious between-meals formulated sports food, backed by biological and nutritional science. With specially selected low GI ingredients, probiotics and a core of essential vitamins and minerals, they are designed to keep blood sugars levels steady, maintain healthy weight and provide sustained energy for a healthier lifestyle.
Originally intended to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, a low GI (Glycemic Index) eating plan can be adapted as an option for weight loss. Our body performs best when blood glucose levels are balanced without spikes or crashes - maintaining a low GI diet helps provide a slower, more sustained release of sugar into the blood as well as keeping energy levels up and hunger levels at bay. Low GI foods can assist in ensuring healthy blood sugar and thus help the body to maintain a healthy weight, in conjunction with regular exercise.
Excess weight and volatile blood glucose levels can lead to pre diabetes and onto diabetes. Most diabetics are now type 2 (adult onset), and diabetes is recognised as the world’s fastest growing chronic condition. If not controlled it can lead to a painful and restricted life for those diagnosed – it can lead to heart attack, stroke and kidney failure, and even amputation. The good thing is most cases of type 2 diabetes can be managed or even prevented by developing healthy lifestyle habits.
Food and exercise are key players for healthy weight control. It is essential to eat the correct foods and exercise regularly, even as simple as taking a walk for 20 minutes a day. A low GI diet is beneficial as it keeps blood sugar levels balanced, promotes satiety (you feel full for longer), and can help to stabilise your energy levels, concentration and mood.
We all know that in between meals snacks can be a problem – we are all busy and it can be difficult to eat well whilst on the run. enerGi Bio Bars make it easy.
enerGi Bio Bars’ ingredients are selected to help you maintain a low GI lifestyle, whether you want to stick to your ideal weight or just care about feeling good. They contain prebiotics, probiotics, 18 essential vitamins and minerals, and are gluten free, high in protein and fibre with no artificial sugars.
