Sue Bee Honey and Sports Nutrition

Combining honey with other healthy foods can add to your total nutrition and gives you an energy boost. One of the most important things to remember when you’re on the go is to stay hydrated. A squeeze of honey in your bottle is an easy substitute for expensive sports drinks.

The benefits of carbohydrate consumption prior to, during and following endurance exercise are well documented.

Pre- Exercise

Honey taken before and during exercise can help maintain blood glucose levels and prevent premature fatigue.

During Exercise

Research has shown that using honey as carbohydrate source while exercising significantly improves performance during endurance cycling trials.

Post Exercise

After exercise, carbohydrates are necessary to replenish muscle and liver glycogen and prepare the athlete for the next training bout.
