BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Endurance athletes are in a league of their own. Think ironmen competitions. Marathons. Even ultra-marathons.

These athletes are not weekend warriors. They run 50-60 miles a week, put in another 200 miles on their bikes and swim hundreds of laps and that doesn't even include any weight or resistance training they may undertake. They are pushing their bodies to the limit and beyond.

This is where Manuka Sport's endurance and performance supplements can really help. Manuka Sport has packed Manuka Honey into their energy gels, hydration powders, and protein powder for recovery. On top of these three products, Manuka Sports sells raw Manuka honey.

"Manuka honey is a gift from the bees for the endurance athlete," said company CEO Tom Buckley. "Endurance athletes need to consume carbohydrates before, during and after their competitions."

In the honey hierarchy, you have Manuka honey from New Zealand and then you have the rest. What makes Manuka honey perfect for the endurance athlete?

Here are the five major benefits:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Natural antibiotic and anti-bacterial
  • Improves gastrointestinal health
  • Mitigates problems with low stomach acid

Researchers at the University of Memphis found that honey is the "most effective form of carbohydrates to eat just before exercise. Honey can also help an endurance athlete's muscles recover because of its anti-inflammatory benefits."

"You know honey is a great carbohydrate for endurance athletes," Buckley said. "You also know that Manuka honey stands apart from all others."

All Manuka Sport products contain Manuka honey, which provides athletes with health benefits in two different areas such as hydration with its orange honey ultra blend of Manuka honey powder, BCAAs, carbohydrates and electrolytes; and energy with its energy gel containing, carbohydrates, electrolytes and the option of caffeine.

Manuka Sport, which has been in the Manuka honey business for a decade, has created a line of nutritional products that meet the needs of all athletes. Its product line includes Manuka Sport Energy Gels, and Manuka Sport Hydration + Energy powder mix.
