Extreme Sport Beans™, from the makers of Jelly Belly®, are unique jelly beans specially formulated to fuel your body before, during and after exercise. Extreme Sport Beans jelly beans offer a distinct delivery system to help you manage optimal intake of carbohydrates and nutrients when you need them most. Extreme Sport Beans® jelly beans are specially formulated with sports performance in mind. The addition of 50 mg of caffeine gives you an extra edge in a workout or competition. Each box contains 24 1-oz resealable
bags of flavor.
Every 1 ounce pack contains:
- 50 mg of caffeine, about the same amount as in a half cup of brewed coffee, for those times when you need an extra edge in a workout or competition.
- 25 grams of easily digestible carbohydrate blend to fuel your body during intense exercise.
- A balanced supply of electrolytes (sodium and potassium) vital for maintaining fluid balance.
- Thiamin (vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), and Niacin (Vitamin B3) to help burn carbohydrates and fat, energize metabolism and maintain good health.
- Vitamin C to protect muscles and cells against oxidative damage.
Caffeine is considered an "ergogenic" aid and acts as a mild stimulant to the central nervous system. It temporarily speeds up your heart rate, increases brain activity and stimulates blood flow throughout the body. The result is an extra edge that can provide a range of documented benefits including:
- Improved endurance.
- Reduced perceived exertion. (RPE)
- Enhanced agility.
- Faster sprint speeds.
- Increased power output.
The primary carbohydrate source in this product is table sugar (sucrose) and corn syrup (a mix of the sugars glucose and fructose.) This blend is similar to what is used in sport drinks and other products designed for fueling. Research studies show the mix of carbohydrate sources used in Extreme Sport Beans® jelly beans is well taken up by the body. In fact, a mix of carbohydrate sources is better used by the body when compared to a single carbohydrate source, such as glucose alone, in a sports product.
Sport Beans® jelly beans are made for a broad range of active people including endurance athletes, weekend warriors and sports enthusiasts. In fact, Sport Beans® jelly beans are appropriate for anyone engaged in prolonged exercise of 60 minutes or more.
