Serious gamers need extra focus and endurance to do their best during intense and extensive gaming sessions. Here, gaming supplements like GFuel and GamerSupps prove useful. These energy formulas fuel their energy and help them stay on top of their game.
Now, GamerSupps and GFuel are endorsed by celebrities, and they advertise impressive promises. However, do these brands live up to their claims? And more importantly, how safe are they? Let us find out.
GFuel and GamerSupps—The first impression
GFuel has been around longer than GamerSupps. It is the official drink of e-sports and is endorsed by many top gamers and sportspersons. GFuel has a proprietary blend that consists of an energy complex, anti-oxidant blend, and focus complex. These three blends work together to improve overall performance, endurance, and alertness.
Although GamerSupps is newer than GFuel, it enjoys immense popularity. This brand uses organic ingredients to create a clean energy formula. Additionally, it is sugar-free and keto-friendly.
Although both brands have a wide array of flavors, GamerSupps is tastier. It is light and does not leave any chalky residue or unpleasant aftertaste.
Key ingredients and their effectiveness
There are two main factors behind the working of most energy drinks—the amount of caffeine in them and the energy they deliver per serving.
Most energy drinks use caffeine as the main ingredient to increase energy. Caffeine is a stimulant that increases mental alertness and physical energy. A healthy adult can safely consume up to 400 mg of caffeine each day.
Now, here is the catch—you must consume adequate caffeine to observe any significant effect. However, you should not exceed the recommended daily dosage to avoid unwanted side effects.
G-fuel delivers 150mg of caffeine per serving. So, you can have two GFuel servings in a day, without suffering unwanted side effects.
GamerSupps does not specify how much caffeine is present in each serving. They beat about the bush and mention that each serving contains “about the same caffeine as a cup of coffee.” Assuming that this means “about” 100 mg of organic caffeine, it is unlikely to deliver the same kick as an equal serving of GFuel. So, GFuel seems to be the superior choice as it is more likely to deliver enough caffeine to make a difference.
Neither G-fuel nor GamerSupps contains sugar, and hence no empty calories. However, you need carbohydrates for energy. GamerSupps has zero carbs. Meanwhile, GFuel contains maltodextrin that delivers nearly 5 grams of carbs per serving. This means you get around 25 calories per drink, which can make a significant difference to your gaming performance. When these carbs combine with caffeine, it forms a win-win combination that Gamersupps cannot compete against.
Other ingredients and their benefits
If you are like me, you would want to know exactly what you put into your body. So, you would treat any product that does not display a comprehensive ingredient list with caution.
GamerSupps does not even disclose the quantity of caffeine, a prime ingredient, which is questionable.
Nonetheless, both GFuel and GamerSupps have an extensive list of ingredients, including vitamins, nootropics, anti-oxidants, minerals, and electrolytes. But the problem is that just stuffing a lot of ingredients into the product does not help.
Unless you consume adequate quantities of any active ingredient, you cannot enjoy its benefits. In the case of GFuel and GamerSupps, there is just enough of most ingredients to put it on the ingredient list. However, they do not deliver a sufficient amount of any of these ingredients to produce noticeable results.
Sealing the deal—Cost comparison of GFuel and GamerSupps
Regardless of the ingredient list, taste comparison, or energy benefits, most gamers will prefer a product that is more affordable.
When we consider this factor, GamerSupps emerges as the winner because it has more servings per tub of product. You can enjoy one serving of GamerSupps for just 0.35$. Meanwhile, an equal serving of GFuel would cost you nearly twice as much money. So, if you are looking for maximum bang for your buck, GamerSupps is the energy formula for you.
As far as energy-drink formulas go, GFuel and GamerSupps deliver similar benefits. Each has pros and cons. Both improve alertness and endurance, and the results are comparable. Neither are exceptionally good for your body.
Nonetheless, the results are similar, and you wouldn’t notice significant differences between the two. However, there is a drastic difference when we consider taste. GamerSupps is lighter, tastes better than GFuel, and is easier to consume. Nonetheless, I have misgivings about the incomplete ingredient list of GamerSupps. Although GamerSupps is cheaper and more affordable, the questionable ingredient list and lack of details make me wonder if it is worth the risk. In either case, I would stick to the recommended serving limits and consume both drinks in moderation to stay safe.
