Before we move on to talk about the ingredients in G Fuel, we want to have a brief look at the history of the brand and who is behind this exciting energy drink.

History of G Fuel

G Fuel energy drink was launched in 2012. The founders saw a gap in the market that needed filling – that of the gaming community.

Presented as a fun and accessible lifestyle brand, G Fuel immediately became a hit with the target audience as well as with many other energy drink lovers.

Collaborations with famous candy brands and limited edition launches appeal to the younger generation. Other collaborations include those with film production companies, game studios, and musicians.

G Fuel is available in ‘tubs’ – a unique selling point that helps it stand out in the crowd – and with the bright and exciting branding it is immediately recognizable on the shelves.

The people behind G Fuel are Gamma Labs, based in New York. The product was originally issued as a caffeinated powder which was mixed with water. Since then, they have expanded the G Fuel range to include the popular cans.

G Fuel comes in two ranges: the standard caffeinated version and a range of hydration drinks that are caffeine-free.

What is G Fuel Good For?

G Fuel was designed as a product for gamers and eSports athletes. Typically, these two classes of people operate for long periods of time.

A can of G Fuel will provide added sustenance and focus for between 4 and 6 hours. Let’s have a close look at the ingredients within a can of G Fuel.

First, we want to look at caffeine which is one of the main active ingredients not only in G Fuel but in most energy drinks. In fact, at 300mg, G Fuel contains the most caffeine of all energy drinks bar two others which also have 300mg.

This is a lot of caffeine. The recommended daily dosage for a healthy adult is 400mg. Children and women who are pregnant should not indulge in caffeine-rich products such as this.

Caffeine provides sustenance as anyone who enjoys their coffee will know.

G Fuel also features small amounts of Vitamins B3, B6, B12, and C, plus minor amounts of potassium and sodium which are found naturally in the body.

One major active ingredient in G Fuel – also present in most if not all products of this type – is taurine.

Taurine is produced in the body and is known to aid muscle development and boost the cognitive performance.

L-Tyrosine is another constituent of G Fuel. This natural neurotransmitter helps conserve energy, which is useful for body builders and the market for this product – gamers. It is present naturally in the body so you ae boosting that ability.

Also in G Fuel is L Theanine, another natural substance that helps with concentration and focus. This is found in many brands of energy drink.

These are just a few of the active ingredients and you can read the full list on the side of the can. The product does include a mix of antioxidants for added measure.

G Fuel is a zero sugar and zero calorie product which is becoming increasingly popular. Let’s talk about the various flavors.
