The beloved energy bar! Much has improved since the advent of Nature Valley Bars and PowerBars in the 70's and 80's. But, the general concept of having nutritious food on-the-go has not changed. Bars are a tasty and efficient source of fuel while you're being active, but let's face it, many days are also spent in front of a computer screen.
When your body is physically resting – not engaged in any activity outside of breathing, digesting, or keeping warm – your brain uses 20-25% of the body's overall energy. The fuel of choice for the brain is mainly glucose, and this translates to 350-450 calories per day for the average person. The brain is actually the most energy-intensive organ in your body, and it only accounts for roughly 2% of your body's weight.
Energy bars are a reliable source of fuel during activities – hiking, climbing, biking, you name it – but, our wide range of bars also check a lot of additional boxes. Whether you're optimizing for protein intake, slow burning carbs, glucose replenishment, or fruit & veggies, Gelvio has you covered!
