GG Energy By Gamersupps Product Review
GGhas been a well known energy and focus supplement in the Esports space for a while now although with the community growing and the competitive space also growing large individuals are looking for the competitive edge along with this comes increase for knowledge on these nootropic energy products. So here we are to give our opinion on GG by Gamersupps.
Introduction To The Product
Why Would Someone Use An Energy Product For Gaming? Pre workouts have been a long standing product in the sports supplement industry for decades utilising caffeine and a variety of stimulants combined with performance enhancing ingredients like creatine, beta alanine, citrulline and more to improve power, endurance and pumps. GG By Gamersupps has been formulated differently with their intended purpose to help improve cognitive function, mental accuity and reaction times in gamers and assist in general day to day focus.
What Is The Cost Of The Product. GG comes in a 100 serve tub valued at $64.95AUD giving it a serving cost of $0.64c although if you are someone who has a higher tolerance to stimulants you may want to 2 scoop it bring the serving size to $1.299 which is still insane value for money.
Flavours.Currently GG comes in 5 unreal flavours. Definitely not as many as some of it's competitors although they really hit the mark with the flavours they have brought to the market. Those flavours being:
- Acai Blueberry
- Dragonfruit Punch
- Citrus Lemonade
- Blue Razz
- Mango Meta
Calories & Fillers
Each serve of Gamersupps GG energy formula contains 0 calories unlike other competitive products that contain maltodextrin gg contains none which allows it to have 0 calories. This is a 0 filler formula and comprised of entirely active ingredients with the addition of a stabilisers and the artificial sweetener erythritol a non-GMO sugar alcohol with no impact on your blood sugar, no insulin response, and a 0 on the GI index. Erythritol is not acknowledged by the bacteria in your gut which is why it's able to be 70% as sweet as sugar but contain no calories. Keto Friendly, Diabetic Friendly.
Vitamin Complex Initially we see a serve of vitamin c in the form of absorbic acid this is utilised in most sports supplements to help with your bodies ability to utilise many of the active ingredients with also providing the benefits of immune health that vitamin c is so well known for.
Secondly we see vitamin D3. Unfortunately, about 42% of the US population is vitamin D deficient. The human body primarily gets D3 from sunlight and proper nutrition. Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function.
Once again another very mainstream addition of the b vitamin complex with the intended use of the GG product for providing energy and focus a b vitamin complex is a must have an also helps reduce the crash from caffeine along with the benefits of:
- An essential B Vitamin primarily necessary for brain function and the creation of red blood cells to carry oxygen through your bloodstream. Supplementation of B6: May Improve Mood and Reduce Symptoms of Depression, May Promote Brain Health and Reduce Alzheimer’s Risk, and May Prevent Clogged Arteries and Reduce Heart Disease Risk.
- It is crucial in the metabolism of every cell of the human body. Primarily its added for the benefit of developing red blood cells and its alertness effect among people who are deficient and unaware, which are most people. B12 may improve mood, symptoms of depression and may benefit your brain by preventing the loss of neurons.*
The last addition to the vitamin complex is biotin (B7) now at first glance it really doesn't make much sense to see biotin in a formula like this as biotin supports the growth and strength of hair, skin, and nails. There is little benefit for gaming related purposes but it is very common for people to be deficient and needing more for healthier cell function. I see GG going for a more well rounded daily use energy drink and that's potentially there though behind the addition of this ingredient.
To summarise the Gamersupps GG vitamin complex i'd say it hits all the marks needed for an energy formula with the addition of the biotin that although may be not needed is a welcomed addition.
NR GG. Energy Complex (proprietary). The first thing to note is obviously Gamersupps have decided to go with a proprietary formula meaning i really can't get into the nitty gritty of dosages with each ingredient and really only give an explanation of each ingredient as a whole. My assumption is Gamersupps have wanted to keep their GG Energy Formula a secret although form a review perspective it makes my job hard... LOL.
First off we have organic caffeine derived from the patented PureCaf. This is an amazing addition as i am personally a huge fan of organic caffeine and we see it in one of our top selling pre workouts dragons breath. It provides a cleaner energy feeling with less crash compared to synthetic caffeine anhydrous. We do know each serve of Gamersupps GG contains 100mg of purecaf per serve. This serve is standard across most mainstream energy drinks although if you are looking for a little more of a kick i would recommend 2 scooping.
The remaining portion of the energy formula is comprised of a variety of different nootropics such as
- L-Theanine An amino acid that is naturally found in tea and green tea leaves. Works extremely well with caffeine to prevent any crash or jitters, reduce anxiety. Theanine’s combination with caffeine at a 2.25:1 ratio is the gold standard for clinically studied nootropic effect.
- L-Tyrosine An amino acid generally used for mental cognition though its help in the production of several key neurotransmitters such as nor adrenaline and dopamine. Basically a must have in an energy focus formula.
- Choline L-Bitartrate A precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that performs many functions relating to both muscular control and memory.
- Phosphatidylserine Boosts memory and cognitive function, Helps manage stress, May help ease ADHD symptoms in children. Phosphatidylserine is especially important for cellular function in the brain and studies show a benefit in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.
EYE HEALTH BLEND Now i am super pumped to see eye support ingredients in this formula. As more and more energy/focus nootropic products for gamers come out i believe it should be essential they all contain some sort of eye support formula. Large amounts of screen time can deteriorate eye health and it's definitely not something people are actively aware of and supplementing so if people can kill 2 birds with one stone in an energy product like this here GG by Gamersupps that's amazing. The GG Energy Formula has 2 eye health ingredients and they are lutein and Astaxanthin.
- Lutein Primarily found in greens, Lutein is an important component in the protection and health of your eyes. Many of us are staring at digital screens for a majority of their day and lutein is the best supplement to protect against the damage caused by blue light.
-Astaxanthin In the same family as both Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Astaxanthin is known as the king of the family of Carotenoids. Along with Eye Health, studies show an amazing antioxidant profile headlined by a lowered risk of cancer by decreasing mutagenesis and carcinogenesis by inhibiting oxidative damage to cells, Ear and hearing protection, Management of Diabetes, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, and maintenance of brain health. Our favourite ingredient
ANTI OXIDANTS, MINERALS & ELECTROLYTE BLEND": An important factor to minimising caffeine crash and general mental and physical performance is hydration. Many individuals immediately assume hydration primarily has to do with water consumption and although that is obviously very important something that is equally as important is adequate electrolyte (salt) consumption.
So obviously it's a must that GG has added an electrolyte blend to their formula with the addition of a few ingredients rich in anti oxidants such as Acai Berry Extract, Goji Berry Extract, Ginseng Root Extract and Mangosteen Fruit Extract. These ingredients can provide an array of benefits from healthier skin, lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation and more. Their addition is to provide a general health and wellbeing aspect to the formula to give it more of that daily energy drink formula vs. pigeon holing the formula to be specifically for gaming. I make that assumption based primarily off the addition of the biotin and obviously the anti oxidants.
The electrolytes we see in this formula are Zinc & Potassium i would like to see the addition of sodium and magnesium as a part of their electrolyte blend but zinc and potassium will be benefial none the less.
GG by Gamersupps overall is an amazing product for those looking to increase their energy and focus at an extremely cost effective price while adding 0 calories to their daily intake unlike other mainstream energy drinks.
It wont provide a kick anywhere near as much as a pre workout but it also doesn't aim to be a pre workout. I would have liked to see a more transparent breakdown of it's ingredients instead of a proprietary blend to be able to give a more in depth review of the formula.
Although Gamersupps have really nailed all their flavours and each flavour is very refreshing and hits the mark with their description. I really can't fault their flavours and they top all their competitors rivalled flavours.
Gamersupps GG is a definite must try!
