What is ZV9? The ZV9 Protein Energy bar has been specially formulated using high quality whey and milk proteins. It is ideal for use after training or racing as a healthy snack, which also helps recovery.
Why should I use ZV9? The ZV9 Protein Energy Bar applies the latest advances in whey protein science to produce a soft moist texture without comprising nutrition quality by using collagen or other 'low value' proteins. It also includes the ZIPVIT SPORT synergistic mix of vitamins, to help with energy production from carbohydrates and fats and protect against harmful free radicals. ZIPVIT SPORT's protein bar is without question the most exciting bar to be launched in the last decade. Setting new milestones for flavour, taste and benefits, it has already started to revolutionize nutrition for endurance sports.
How does it work? Zipvit's ZV9 Protein Energy Bar digests so easily it can actually be taken during exercise to accelerate recovery. It can also be used after exercise to help refuel and repair exercised muscles. The quality proteins and carbohydrates in the ZV9 bar improve muscle repair and refueling several days after hard training sessions, making them a useful aid to recovery even on rest days. The great taste and convenience of the Zipvit ZV9 bar also makes it the perfect high protein snack.
Zipvits ZV9 Energy Bars are groundbreaking within the pro peleton. They were originally formulated to provide a convenient high protein snack to take after training to boost recovery. Importantly ZV9 Protein Energy bars are made with high Biological Value (BV) proteins fortified with whey. Great care was taken to avoid the use of soy, collagen and gelatine, which though commonly used in protein bars are nutritionally inferior as they have a lower Biological Value (BV). Despite the use of quality protein sources Zipvits ZV9 bars are soft and moist and do not become hard over time. The combination of great taste and a quality protein formulation was the result of intensive R&D activity. Zipvit also included their unique synergistic blend of antioxidants and vitamins to protect against damaging free radicals and maintain energy production.
In tests, athletes all commented on how good the ZV9 protein bar tasted and found that they recovered faster from training with less muscle stiffness. Zipvits extensive research investment to develop the ZV9 energy bars was immediately recognised by the Radioshack Team.
