Product Description

Similar to LUNAbar vs. CLIFbar, LUNA Sport™ Moons are considered a woman's alternative to CLIF Shot Bloks™. But don't be misled; LUNA Sport™ Moons can be just as beneficial and delicious to men as they are for women.

LUNA Sport™ Moons are a semi-solid, easily chewable source of carbohydrates, half the bite-size of CLIF Shot Bloks™ (i.e. 5 Grams/EA vs. 10 Grams/EA).
One packet of LUNA Sport™ Moons is one serving of 100 calories (in contrast to one packet of CLIF Shot Bloks™, which contains two servings and is 200 calories).

LUNA Sport™ Moons were originally designed for Women Endurance Athletes (i.e. Cyclists, Runners, Mountain Bikers, Triathletes, Adventure Racers, etc.) who were looking for alternative eating options in their sports nutrition products.

Features

LUNA Sport™ Moons are currently available in three flavors: Blueberry, Watermelon and Pomegranate. Each flavor emphasizes a specific benefit:
BLUEBERRY: Contains antioxidant vitamins A, C, E.
WATERMELON: Contains energizing B vitamins.
POMEGRANATE: Contains 50% daily value vitamin C.

Each flavor of LUNA Sport™ Moons contains 70 mg of Sodium and 20 mg of Potassium per serving (one packet), providing important electrolytes.

LUNA Sport™ Moons are 50% Complex Carbohydrate and 50% Simple Carbohydrate.

LUNA Sport™ Moons are organic, and do not contain gluten, animal products, or MSG.

LUNA Sport™ Moons have been product-tested during winter activities (skiing, snowboarding), with no undue hardening resulting from exposure to cold weather.

Recommended Instructions For Consumption

LUNA Sport™ Moons should be eaten 15-30 minutes prior to activity to increase blood sugar levels, and then every 20-30 minutes during activity to maintain energy levels. Keep in mind that LUNA Sport™ Moons will affect your blood sugar levels more slowly than sports gels because they are semi-solid.
***Just as recommended with CLIF Shot Bloks™, always follow LUNA Sport™ Moons with a mouthful of water to aid in digestion.***
