Luna Sport Moons: For Long Workouts

If any of you are training for a marathon, or you just love running long distances for fun, you're going to need more than your trusty sneakers and your tunes to keep you going. To move you need energy and fuel, and if you're on the move for over an hour you'll start to run out of juice. Carrying around food will just weigh you down, and you most likely won't have the appetite for it anyway. So Luna, the makers of those energy bars we all love, has created the first organic energy electrolyte chew designed for women, called Luna Sport Moons. These chews were designed for female endurance athletes: cyclists, runners, skiers, mountain bikers, triathletes, and hikers.

To hear more about Luna Sport Moons,


Luna Sport Moons are like the fruit snacks you ate as a kid. They're an easy source of quick carbohydrates, and each flavor offers different functional benefits. Watermelon Moons are full of B vitamins. The Blueberry Moons contain antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, and the Pomegranate Moons are loaded with half your daily value of vitamin C. They can be eaten 15 to 20 minutes before an activity to increase blood sugar levels, and then every 20 to 30 minutes during your workout to maintain your energy levels. They affect blood sugar levels slower than those gooey gels because they're semi-solid. Each packet of chews contains 100 calories, so it's easy to keep track of your caloric intake.

Fit's Tip: Most gear shops sell Luna Moons for about $1.30 each, but REI has them on sale right now for $0.89 per packet.
