Raw Vegan Sports Nutrition: Amrita Bars

AmritaHomePage

DHH is excited to announce the addition of Amrita Bars to our selection of sports nutrition products.  “Amrita” in Sanskrit means “nectar of the gods” – which is fitting since these bars are filled in with super-natural ingredients.  Amrita bars were developed by a vegan endurance athlete looking for quality plant-based nutrition to maximize his performance.  The bars were also formulated so they would be an ideal snack for his Autistic son who follows a strict gluten and dairy free diet.  Amrita bars are (of course) gluten free and they are also free from:

  • Soy
  • Nuts
  • Dairy & Eggs
  • GMO’s
  • Cholesterol or added oils
  • Preservatives
  • Anything artificial

Amrita bars are not just impressive for what they leave out.  Each bar is packed full of superfoods such as organic chia seeds, organic maca, and organic unsweetened coconut.  The ingredients are raw and 80% organic.  Unlike many other vegan bars on the market, they contain a significant amount of quality bio-available protein, much of which comes from Sunwarrior’s warrior blend – a raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile that is high in glutamine, arginine, lysine, leucine, and branched-chain amino acids. The bars are also rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s, with a good dose of fiber.

Amrita bars have two different nutritional profiles:  Endurance and Recovery.  Endurance bars are scientifically formulated to provide 60% of calories from carbohydrates, 25% from fats, and 15% from protein. This balance is ideal in fueling and sustaining endurance activities. They come in the following fruit-filled flavors:  Mango Coconut, Cranberry Raisin, Apricot Strawberry, Pineapple Chia, and Apple Cinnamon. The Chocolate Maca Recovery bar is designed to reduce stress and recovery time after exercise. It delivers 15 grams of complete, plant-based protein, formulated to strengthen and regenerate muscles. These bars also contain maca, a stress-fighting adaptogen, known to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue.

DHH also offers a variety pack of all six flavors so you can try each one!
