How to stay energized while playing games the healthy way

G Fuel by Gamma Labs

So after being introduced to this by my gaming buddies I finally decided to give this stuff a try. Everyone keeps raving about it on twitter so I thought what the heck and when a bought some sample sticks online. I purchased 3 flavours to give a test to which were fazeberry, grape and the pineapple flavour that has just been released.

Mixing the drink

When I received my sample packs I was excited to try them out. It was a bit hard for me to mix the power with the water as instructed as I didn’t have a shaker cup that easily does this. I did see that Gamma Labs do make their own official G-Fuel shaker cups, and I highly recommend getting one if you don’t have anything at home to mix the drink.

The taste

Compare to most supplements that I have tried over the years, the taste is actually really good which makes it enjoying to drink as well. My favourite out of the 3 I bought was the fazeberry as it tasted the sweetest, but that’s just my personal preference. I would suggest you try them all out to see what is yours.

The effects

It didn’t take long to feel the effects kick in, approximately 20 minutes for me, which is a little longer than a energy drink like Red Bull would take, but that is down to the sugar! While playing the new CoD Black Ops I felt a strong fixated rush that had me glued to my screen and reactions were a lot more on point as I racked up my kill streaks.

After about 90 minutes I felt the drink start to wear off, however, unlike the usual energy drink crash I just felt normal again. Normally after a dose of sugar fuel energy I want to take nap!


What makes this drink great is that there is zero┬ásugar (yes really!), which is great as it doesn’t take a toll on your health if you start to drink loads. The energy come from the caffeine content. The dosage is high compared to a cup of coffee, but it is a lot safer then consuming a load of sugar that’s for sure!

Buy it in the UK

As GFuel is a U.S based company it is pretty difficult getting it shipped over, and can work out quite expensive. All G Fuel products can be bought in the UK, which is really cheap as well. This website has all whole Gamma Labs range which makes it a one stop shop!
