Dick’s Sporting Goods, REI and PGA TOUR Superstores among Stores Nationwide to Carry Product Delivering Twice the Energy, Twice as Fast
(Phoenix, AZ) – The GLUKOS Company, a natural performance energy foods brand, today announced the launch of its all-natural, performance energy products at retail and through e-commerce at GLUKOSENERGY.com. Providing twice the energy in half the time of leading energy products, GLUKOS is now available in hundreds of specialty retail stores, including DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, PGA TOUR Superstores and FLEET FEET SPORTS, among many others.
Founded by Mark Jensen, an Ironman competitor and former collegiate runner, GLUKOS is a more effective source of performance energy. Unlike fructose and sucrose-based energy products, which the body must first convert into glucose before using, GLUKOS is glucose based allowing it to immediately get into the bloodstream for fast, useful energy. Athletes using GLUKOS also avoid the increase in heart rate associated with caffeine-based energy drinks.
“GLUKOS is a game changer in the performance energy category and we’re thrilled to have so many respected specialty retail stores jumping on board,” said Mick McCormick, president and CEO, GLUKOS Company Inc. “Over the next several months GLUKOS will be available in several thousand specialty retail stores ensuring athletes and active people everywhere can benefit from this exciting alternative to what is currently on the market.”
Through extensive research and development, Jensen and GLUKOS found the optimum source of energy that was both healthy and effective for active consumers. GLUKOS is similar to an IV because it contains the same basic ingredients, including water, glucose and electrolytes such as potassium and sodium. Glucose, being the most important ingredient, is known as the “good” sugar because it is the only fuel the human body can use to produce natural energy, and is also the purest form of energy available. GLUKOS is devoid of many substances such as caffeine, which artificially increases the heart rate and causes dehydration; High Fructose Corn Syrup and Sucrose, the “bad” sugars, which create lactic acid and triglycerides in the muscles hindering performance and recovery; artificial sweetener, which provides no nutritional value.
GLUKOS will be widely distributed in sports specialty retail stores and online to reach consumers that want their body to perform at its optimum level. Product is available in six different delivery mechanisms, including ready-to drink, gel, powder, tablet, gummy and bar.
