Sports Beans are meant to help fuel your body during a workout. They are clinically proven to maximize performance, help maintain fluid balance from the electrolytes, and protect cells against oxidative damage from the Vitamin C. These beans are made with natural flavors, have real fruit juices, and come in a handy resealable bag, so you can easily take them on a run. Not to mention they taste pretty dang good, and come in a variety of flavors: assorted, berry, green apple, orange, fruit punch, juicy pear (my favorite), and lemon lime.
They also have an Extreme Sports Bean for when your workout needs a little more oomph. It has the same benefits of the original sports beans with the addition of 50 mg of caffeine to help with alertness, endurance, and agility. These come in flavors such as: assorted, extreme cherry, extreme watermelon, and extreme pomegranate.
I’ve noticed these little beans pack quite a punch, and help a lot with my energy level when going on a longer run. They are also easy to use. Just take one pack 30 minutes before activity with water. Then, while running a longer distance, I normally take one or two every couple of miles to sustain my energy level.
Fun fact: These beans are also gluten free, vegetarian friendly, and OU Kosher certified.
So, if you’re looking to try some sort of energy supplement for the first time, or want to change it up, these Jelly Belly Sports Beans are worth a shot.
What’s your favorite way to fuel before and during a race?
