Why name the company REACH Nutrition?We should always reach beyond our grasp and never settle whether it be in our personal lives, careers or when it comes to our health and fitness. We created this brand to support you in whatever it is you are REACHING for. Our journeys are all different and no matter where yours takes you, we’ll be there every step of the way.
Life is about the REACH; so REACH for something remarkable!
Why launch a nutrition company?
We have spent nearly 30 years studying and working within the nutrition industry and concluded that there is a void in the marketplace when it comes to products across the board from bars, supplements and beyond. This company was founded out of a passion for helping people achieve their health and wellness goals with high quality products that have well-balanced ratios of macronutrients.
What is the importance of a macronutrient lifestyle?
The body needs all three macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, fats). We are our healthiest, strongest and most efficient when we intake the right balance and the right kind of macronutrients. The proper amount of carbs will supply energy throughout the body. Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that is vitally important to maintain health, support GI health, lower inflammation and remove toxins from the body. It is important to note that our energy does not only come from carbohydrates, and if we intake too many sugars, it can have a negative impact on our health and achieving our goals.
Proteins are responsible for growth of our muscles and to build and repair tissues. Though we may be successful at consuming some proteins, typically, the difficult part is whether we are getting in enough to support our active lifestyle, and whether we are getting in a healthy balance of non-inflammatory to inflammatory proteins.
Fats are a great source of long-term, efficient energy and allow us to perform at our peak. Healthy fats support a leaner body with less inflammation and also support cardiovascular health while stabilizing blood sugar and insulin levels.
Tell us about the first product, REACH Bars?
We can assure you that these are not just another nutrition bar! New bars pop up constantly claiming to be “good for you,” but some may be no healthier than a candy bar. We understand that it can be challenging to get in enough healthy fats and low inflammatory proteins on a daily basis, and at the same time, control how much added sugars we intake. Typically, carbohydrates and sugars come into our daily lives without much thought, and we can easily create an imbalance of our macros.
Hence, our REACH Bars! We spent over a year in the kitchen figuring out the right ingredients and perfect ratios for a well-balanced macronutrient bar with a strict focus on only including elements that would be a positive addition to any lifestyle. Our bars are low sugar, low carb and have a digestible amount of plant-based protein with a lot of super healthy brain and energy boosting fats. Taste is just as important so we worked with a food scientist to make sure they are delicious with a satisfying texture.
Reach Bars have 2 grams of sugar, 4 grams of net carbs, 12/13 grams of protein and 15 grams of health fats.
Currently, REACH Bars come in two flavors: Nut Brownie and Vanilla Coconut. Two new ones are in the pipeline so be sure to sign up for updates.
Who is able to eat REACH Bars?
This bar has been formulated for everyone. Meaning, we used ingredients that could benefit any menu plan or lifestyle. We eliminated things like dairy and peanuts to keep the allergen factor low. We used organic ingredients when possible and used a high quality plant-based complete protein. Whether you follow a plant-based diet or not, this bar has the perfect mix of protein, carbs and fats to give you the energy you need for a great workout, an efficient recovery or just an in-between meal snack. It’s even a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth craving.
