What is FLY GUM®?
FLY GUM® is, what we believe to be, the perfect performance enhancing energy supplement for air-sports enthusiasts on and off the ground! Our unique liquid center contains B-vitamins and natural caffeine and is surrounded by a delicious, xyltiol-rich gum shell that stays soft and chewable for an hour or more. This allows the active ingredients to be released quickly and effectively while refreshing your breath and helping you stay focused. It truly is Smarter Energy with an Edge™. Each piece includes:
~80mg of Natural Caffeine per Piece
Reduced Fatigue to Improve Reaction Times
Improved Focus & Concentration through the Act of Chewing
Improved Oral Health from Xylitol
Always Sugar-Free, Vegan & Gluten-Free
FLY GUM® is perfectly portable and contains 5 pieces per pack, which equals 5 servings of energy!
Is FLY GUM® Sugar-Free?
Yes! Like all of our Liquid Core® Gums, FLY GUM® does not contain sugar, aspartame or acesulfame-k.
How much caffeine is in each piece of FLY GUM®?
Each piece contains approximately 80 mg of natural caffeine from green coffee beans. That is roughly equivalent to a small cup of coffee or a single serving of an energy drink.
When should I chew FLY GUM®?
We recommend chewing a piece of FLY GUM® about 10 minutes or so before you jump to allow time for the energy to kick in. You can keep chewing to promote the brain-boosting benefits like increased focus and concentration, which can certainly come in handy when you are skydiving, BASE jumping, paragliding, etc.
FLY GUM® is not just for the drop zone! You can chew FLY GUM® as a preworkout before the gym, as an after lunch pick-me-up at the office, during a road trip, etc. Anytime and anywhere you can use some extra energy and focus is a great time to chew!
How long does each piece of FLY GUM® last?
FLY GUM® will typically stay soft and flavorful for an hour or more, so you can chew it until you can’t chew anymore! As for the energy, depending on your metabolism, you can expect to feel the effects very quickly and taper off smoothly over a few hours. Unlike sugar laden energy drinks, FLY GUM® offers a cleaner energy boost that is not accompanied by a “jittery” sugar crash!
Why should I chew FLY GUM® instead of drinking a coffee or 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 caffeniated beverages and 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. Coffee is better for you, health wise, but unless you are making it at home, it can be even more expensive than energy drinks. Whereas FLY GUM® can cost $1 or LESS per piece, and can score you some brownie points with your dentist.
What are the "Cognitive Benefits" that you can get from Golf Gum®?
The Cognitive Benefits that FLY 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.
We even wrote an entire blog article about the benefits of chewing gum! Check it out for more information and more links to scientific studies.
