GOforever Energy Bars don’t rely on man-made protein isolates like protein powders to pack a punch. These types of additives are often highly processed and heated to the point that the protein is denatured, which makes it nearly impossible for the body to recognize and use. The result is higher levels of acidity and toxicity in the body, which can lead to plenty of unwanted illnesses and diseases. GOforever Energy Bars provide a complete protein source without using man-made isolates. With a 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, our bars ensure maximum glycogen storage in your muscles. Glycogen provides the gradual release of energy that your body needs to be “forever on the go.”
Not only will you find that our bars are stocked full of natural proteins found in our nuts, seeds and oats, they taste amazing. Why? Because we proudly use only the finest ingredients available and then carefully handcraft each batch to the point of perfection.
