Science and Research behind our Product development
We spent months of research working with a team of leading Applied Sports and Exercise Scientists and Nutritional experts.
We invest our resources in Science, R&D - That's why our product formulation is underpinned by:
- Scientific evidence of the nutritional needs of youth
- Identifying key macro/micro-nutrients essential for a youth
- How each of these nutrients correlate with each other for maximum effect
- How these nutrients are absorbed in their body
- How the ingredients will support the gut microbiome stability of a young person
FORMULATED WITH NUTRITIONAL EXPERTS
Working with Sports & Exercise Scientists and Nutritional Experts - we used sports science, food science & nutrient synergies to create our recipes to support the diverse needs of young people which is different to adults, to optimise nutrient absorption and performance. Long term impact of health benefits is our priority and that's why we invest our resources in science backed research.
EVERY INGREDIENT CAREFULLY STUDIED AND CHOSEN FOR A PURPOSE
We carefully chose our Macro & Micro nutrients (protein, carbs , good fats, vital vitamins & minerals) essential for optimising performance. Carbohydrates support energy, Proteins for muscle synthesis, Magnesium for bones & electrolyte balance, Vitamin B12 for healthy oxygen flow, brain & immune function, Copper for minimising oxidative stress caused by exercise, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium for energy metabolism.
BIO AVAILABLE NUTRIENTS FOR LONG TERM HEALTH BENEFITS
We are proud to have worked with academia experts who are gut-brain researchers.
Gut is one of the most active part of the human body with over 70% immune cells in our gut. Further human colon harbours about 10 micro-organisms and over 1000 species of bacteria and is considered the most metabolically active site in the human body. . These intestinal microbiota have been shown to play a prominent role in maintaining gut health.
ProYouth Bars contain ingredients that not protect and improve the gut microbiome stability of the athlete but also aids effective nutrient absorption.
