“The Honey Stinger Hive program is designed to help support the athletic pursuits of our customers and supporters. Hive athletes are leaders in their sports, involved their community, and have nutritional views that align with our brand.

“I am ecstatic about signing on with Honey Stinger®”, says Gill. “Several years ago, after suffering from stomach issues in ultra-distance races, I switched to a low carb diet. Honey Stinger® utilizes honey, which has been shown to have lower glycemic properties. It provides sustained energy that allows blood sugar levels to remain constant throughout activity without a high insulin spike and crash. In addition, it tastes great which is really important for long-distance running events.”
