Inspired by the nature of Patagonia and their love for sports, Pamela Lagos and Karel Hrdina were encouraged to dream of creating a nutritional food for athletes that was 100% natural and made from local ingredients. This is how POWERhoney was born in 2012, an alternative to existing foods that both adults and children used for their workouts. What makes POWERhoney so special is the ulmo honey; a native honey from southern Chile, which in addition to having a unique flavor is recognized throughout the world for its high healing power and exceptional energy content. The hallmark of Powerhoney is to create natural foods with quality ingredients and with a high nutritional content for the world.
This is how we became a natural energy alternative for athletes, honey lovers and for all people who like a healthy life.
POWERhoney will be your ideal companion because it is a real food made with natural and quality raw materials, immediate and sustained energy without sudden drops after consumption and great efficiency in performance.
The Nutrition Laboratory of the University of Memphis rates honey as the best energy alternative for exercise, since it is rich in fructose and glucose, a high energy power for athletes that manages to delay the onset of fatigue due to the fact that the liver makes little effort to transform it into glucose, due to the fact that it is predigested by the enzymatic contribution of the bee. In this way it has immediate assimilation in the body.
It has more than 60 important substances for the athlete such as vitamins, calcium, potassium, folic acid among others. Ulmo is a tall tree native to southern Chile, with white flowers. Its honey, in addition to having a unique flavor recognized in the world, has a high healing power. This allows the rapid regeneration of tissues damaged by sports activity.
A study carried out by the University of Chester (England) using ulmo honey, showed that a drink based on this honey has the same efficacy as a commercial energy drink. In addition to achieving equivalent performance, energy drinks and honey were significantly superior to water in maintaining adequate blood glucose and low body temperature.
“But since the glycemic index of honey is lower, it does not produce sudden insulin spikes ”
