ULTRA SPORT NUTRITION
Näak is the first sport nutrition made to fulfill the energy needs of endurance athletes with the most sustainable approach. The Näak ULTRA ENDURANCE ENERGY BARS help you cover long distances without running out of energy while eliminating gastrointestinal discomfort. Our products are formulated with a 4:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio, 180mg of natural electrolytes, a list of natural ingredients, and a proprietary protein blend of cricket powder that optimizes nutrient absorption and energy yield, ensuring you never run out of steam.
With a 4:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio, Näak ultra energy bars provide you with sufficient amounts of carbohydrates to top off your muscle glycogen levels in the most efficient way possible thanks to the addition of protein, which enhances glucose uptake by your muscle cells and reduce energy level fluctuation.
Each Näak ultra endurance energy bar contains 180mg of electrolytes. They are rich in sodium and potassium for two reasons: help athletes balance their electrolyte levels lost through sweat during exercise & prevent muscle cramping during intense physical challenges.
Most of ultra endurance athletes face digestion issues and taste fatigue while running ultra marathons. We solve these issues by creating a product that provides an easy absorption during the intake, no gastrointestinal discomfort while exercising, and with a taste not too sweet to avoid sugar fatique.

"Näak bars go with me everywhere. They are nutritious and delicious. They fuel me for my long runs. This is the only bar I can eat before or during my trainings and races and feel great, completely avoiding stomach pains and prevent me to bonk. I like the fact they are not too sweet. Because at some point during an ultra marathon you have a sugar fatigue and you can't eat any gels. Näak is the favourite piece of my sports nutrition."

I use the Näak Ultra Endurance Energy Bars to have the sustainable fuel I need during my long trainings or my races. I like the brownie texture that make them easy to ingest and I love them because they are not too sweet, which makes a huge difference when you're running for hours in the mountains. My favorite flavour is definitely the Chocolate Sea Salt."
