St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
Extend Nutrition, a leader in nutritional snacks, will be participating in Northern California’s largest fitness Expo on June 29-30 in Santa Clara, CA.
The St. Louis snack company (http://www.ExtendNutrition.com) manufactures the only snacks clinically proven to help control blood sugar for up to 9 hours. Extend will be among 100 exhibitors. Company representatives will be at booth #210 offering samples of the patented and clinically proven snacks at TheFitExpo.
“We are excited to be participating in our first FitExpo,” said Kensey Turnbaugh, Extend Nutrition brand manager. “There are a lot of other nutrition snacks and bars out there, but the Extend Nutrition line is the first and only one on the market that’s clinically proven to help stabilize blood sugar for up to 9 hours. The importance of good blood sugar control in the fitness industry is catching on and we are proud to be on the cutting edge.”
Jonathan Lindberg, Extend Nutrition’s outreach manager, is one of the featured speakers at the event. Lindberg has over 7 years of experience in the food and nutrition industry and is very active in recreational fitness activities. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC.
Lindberg said he believes the two most important aspects of a happy lifestyle are enjoying physical activity and fueling your body with nutritious foods.
“Extend Nutrition has been a partner in my training for many years due to the protein and extended-action carbohydrates,” Lindberg said. “The clearest example was during a “century” bicycle ride. Other riders dropped out due to fatigue and even low blood sugar. I successfully rode all 104 miles!”
Lindberg is not the only fitness enthusiast who uses Extend Nutrition snacks for peak performance. Among the many athletes who use the snacks to help improve their fitness results is Justin Park, a professional tri-athlete.
Park said he started using Extend Nutrition snacks for training because they help with the regulation of good blood sugar. His favorite Extend Nutrition snack is the Peanut Butter Chocolate Delight bar.
“I’ll have one just before a session, to make up for any errors I made, or I’ll use it just for extra equilibrium during a workout,” Park said. “Regular blood sugar is very important. Having a product that’s proven to control blood sugar can help when you’re struggling with your dietary needs due to lack of time or poor nutritional selection.”
The key ingredient is raw, uncooked cornstarch, which is noted for its appetite-reducing powers in the May/June 2013 issue of Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine in an article called “Say So Long to Cravings Forever!”
Blood sugar stabilization is important for fitness because carbohydrates are converted during digestion to glucose which is used both for immediate energy and stored energy. (If your body already has enough glucose in the blood then it will convert some to glycogen for storage.)
As your glycogen stores are used up, blood glucose levels fall causing a decline in performance and resulting in exhaustion. It is therefore important that your blood sugar (glucose) levels are stabilized to maintain the energy needed to support a high level of physical activity.
Extend Nutrition uses the only formula clinically proven to help stabilize blood sugar levels for up to 9 hours – this helps prevent the body from depleting glycogen stores during demanding activity.
Invented by Dr. Francine Kaufman, world-renowned endocrinologist and former President of the American Diabetes Association, the patented line of Extend Nutrition Bars, Shakes, Crisps and Drizzles are delicious nutritional solutions clinically-proven to help control blood sugar for up to 9 hours.
