While there are a ton of energy products in the outdoor space, way too many are made of synthesized ingredients you can’t read. Maple UnTapped is a surprisingly healthy alternative to processed energy goo. Though, yes, it is merely a pouch of maple syrup, we would argue that this is one of it’s best features. Maple syrup contains amino acids, electrolytes, antioxidants, as well as being low glycemic source of energy!
Why Maple Syrup?
Maple syrup is low glycemic. Containing all natural sugars, maple syrup provides prolonged, sustained energy rather than offering a quick burst and subsequent crash like many adulterated sports sweeteners.
• Maple syrup contains Calcium, Riboflavin, Manganese, Zinc, and Potassium. These inherent components of maple syrup promote energy production, muscle recovery, and help prevent cramping.
• Maple syrup features more than fifty antioxidants. This cocktail of polyphenols have powerful free radical fighting properties. Foods with similar qualities include berries, green tea, red wine, and flaxseeds.
• Maple syrup contains amino acids, which help prevent muscle deterioration.
• Maple syrup is water soluble making it easy to digest, quick to absorb, and no more gut-rot from downing chemical-laden energy gels! Plus it’s a cinch to clean up; just rinse with water. Alternative sports gels are like tar to clean up.
