Many bars on the market are full of refined sugars which will give you a quick burst of energy followed by a crash about 30-60 minutes later. SO PERF Bars are loaded with minimum of 5g plant-based fibre and protein which help keep your blood sugar levels stable. Protein is essential because it is the building blocks of our body. When we eat protein, it gets broken down into amino acids. These amino acids are then used to create our immune system, hormones, enzymes, pretty much everything in our body! If we don’t get enough protein, we can’t optimise our body and its functions. It is important to eat protein with each meal as it also helps stabilise our blood sugar levels, preventing spikes, and it also keeps us fuller for longer. A general rule of thumb is to try and get 1 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight.
Why is this important? Balanced blood sugar levels mean sustained energy for up to 3 hours, no dips – this means better focus, better mood, better hormones and better brain function.
