What is the Q-Bar?
We know how hard it is to eat healthy while traveling and on-the-go, but just because you don’t have time to prepare and eat a home-cooked meal doesn’t mean you have to resort to junk foods that are loaded with sugar. Pure Nutrition has gone the extra mile to create the Q-Bar - a high-protein bar that is not only convenient but also healthy, tasty, and satisfying.
In fact, Q-Bar comes in six delectable flavor options, including Lemon Tarte, Cookies N’ Cream, Coconut, Chocolate Truffle, Berry Cheesecake, and Birthday Cake.
Why the Q-Bar is Best High-Protein Bar on the Market:
- Provides lasting energy and avoid crashing
- 19+ grams of easy-to-digest, high-quality protein in every bar (no soy protein!)
- Over 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in each bar to promote satiety and fullness
- Less than 3 grams of sugar per bar to prevent blood sugar swings
- Delicious taste and convenient on-the-go nutrition
What’s in the Pure Nutrition Q-Bar
Here’s an overview of the ingredients in our high-protein bar and why the Q-Bar was engineered different from most protein bars:
High-Quality Protein from Milk Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Isolate
Many supplement companies formulate their protein bars with inferior, highly allergenic protein sources such as soy protein and wheat protein just to save on cost and deceptively increase the protein content on the label.
Rather than biting the bullet and settling for poor-quality protein sources, we designed the Q-Bar with high-quality whey protein isolate and milk protein isolate as the main ingredients. This ensures maximum bioavailability, digestibility, and a complete profile of essential amino acids for supporting muscle building and recovery.
After all, these are called protein bars for a reason, so it only made sense for the Q-Bar to contain high-quality protein sources and no soy protein.
Prebiotic Dietary Fiber and Minimal Sugar
At the end of the day, our endocrine system dictates what the body does with nutrients and energy we consume; this means that hormones like insulin and growth hormone play a significant role in body composition, athletic performance, muscle building, and fat loss.
Unfortunately, many protein bars rely heavily on added sugar and other fast-acting carbohydrates as purported sources of “energy.” The reality is that overconsumption of sugar can lead to insulin and leptin resistance, which in turn can cause type-2 diabetes, increase risk of obesity, inhibit satiety signals (leading to overeating), and induce feelings of lethargy.1
Not to mention that protein bars loaded with sugar merely provide a short burst of energy that ultimately makes people crash due to the rapid swings in blood sugar. To make matters worse, sugar causes the not-so-friendly gut bacteria to flourish and “overcrowd” the good bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal tract.
Thus, the Q-Bar has minimal sugar content and contains several sources of prebiotic dietary fiber such as fructooligosaccharides and isomalto-oligosaccharides that are slowly fermented by healthy gut microbiota, thereby promoting satiety and lasting energy. In addition, these fibers literally feed beneficial gut microbes and keep your gastrointestinal tract working properly.
Recent research shows the emerging importance of healthy gut flora for protection against gastrointestinal dysfunctions, such as inflammatory bowel disease and even colorectal cancer (which is the 3rd most common form of cancer worldwide).2 The gut microbiome also acts as a barrier of sorts against common pathogens by enhancing immune system defense and promoting absorption of key nutrients from food.3
To put it simply: Every time you eat a Q-Bar, you can feel good knowing you’re supporting your gut health.
Benefits of the Pure Nutrition Q-Bar
We’ve rapidly become a culture that values convenience and quantity over quality, especially when it comes to food selection. Many people just hop over to a nearby fast food restaurant on their lunch break and never want to prepare a healthy meal when they get home from work.
While convenient meals and fast food options are easier than preparing a home-cooked meal, they tend to lack the quality nutrition that active individuals need for optimal health and performance. Remember that food is ultimately nature’s primary form of medicine and fuel for the body.
Sadly, many people completely disregard proper nutrition when they’re in a pinch, instead opting for whatever is easiest and fastest. Repeatedly relying on subpar foods can quickly lead to poor health and deteriorated physical wellness.
This is precisely where the Q-Bar comes in handy for individuals who want to live a healthy lifestyle but don’t always have the time or resources to stay on track with their diet.
Pure Nutrition Q-Bars are made with premium ingredients that provide lasting energy, promote digestive health, support lean body mass, and boost recovery from exercise. Unlike many protein bars these days, Q-Bars aren’t loaded with added sugars and high amounts of saturated fats just to reduce the cost of production.
For gym-goers, athletes, bodybuilders, and health enthusiasts alike, the Pure Nutrition Q-Bar is the ideal form of high-quality on-the-go and convenient nutrition. Not to mention it comes in six delicious flavors that you won’t be able to resist! Try one for yourself today and experience the Q-Bar difference!
