Why should you CHEW your Energy over drinking an energy drink?
If you skip over the part where energy drinks can be corrosive and overall bad for your teeth and ignore some of the sketchy ingredients that can be found in them, energy drinks don’t seem half bad. However, drinking your energy is an obsolete method compared to chewing your energy.
First of all, the way energy drinks affect you largely depends on 1) how fast you drink them, 2) how much/how little you’ve eaten that day, and 3) your metabolism. With all of these factors coming into play, you never truly know when you will feel the effects or how it may affect you this time around.
Lastly, energy drinks are EXPENSIVE! Energy drinks can cost anywhere from $2-$4 per drink, not to mention the long-term effects that they can have on your health and teeth. Whereas Apollo Energy Gum can cost $1 or LESS per piece, and can score you some brownie points with your dentist.
How does Apollo® Energy Gum differ from other energy gum products on the market?
For starters, Apollo Energy Gum has a liquid center that allows the active ingredients to be released quickly and effectively. You will initially taste the intensity of the energy being released but it quickly fades (within 3-17 seconds) and turns into a smooth, minty flavor.
Other Energy Gum Products use powdered caffeine in the shell of a solid piece of gum. With this method, you never know how much caffeine is being released from the gum while you’re chewing, which is why it ends up tasting bad once the flavor dissipates - because the caffeine and vitamins get stuck within the gum itself.
What are these “Cognitive Benefits” that you can get from Apollo® Energy Gum?
The Cognitive Benefits that Apollo Energy Gum can help to promote (based on quality chewing) are increased focus and concentration, improved memory recall, and decreased stress just to name a few. These are all based on independent studies that can be found here, here and here.
