Golf-Specific Energy Gum Slated to Hit Shelves Just in Time for The Holidays
(DENVER, CO.) – Apollo Gum Company, the Denver-based producers of Apollo Energy Gum, today announced the launch of Golf Gum, the perfect energy source for people who choose only the best for their body, mind, and golf game. Just in time for last-minute stocking stuffers, the new product promotes B-vitamins and ~80 mg of natural caffeine, giving the golfer in your life the fast-acting, healthy energy and focus they’ll need for their game.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a division of the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, “A moderate dose of caffeine consumed before and during a round of golf improves golf-specific measures of performance and reduces fatigue.” A 2015 Auburn University study found similar results, shaving, on average, two strokes off of collegiate golf scores. “Chewing gum was [also] associated with enhanced productivity and reduced cognitive errors,” according to the NCBI.
“There’s an evolving consumer demand for cleaner supplements,” says Troy Widgery, CEO and founder of Apollo Gum Company. “We’re creating the future of energy. Golf Gum’s liquid core delivery system rapidly releases the full benefits of specially-sourced natural caffeine and B-vitamins. Although the taste lasts for hours, you don’t have to chew it for more than a few minutes to experience the results of a pure, compact formula that provides long-lasting, comfortable energy. Golf Gum also contains an effective dose of Xylitol, a natural sweetener that has been proven to reduce the risk of cavities and strengthen tooth enamel.”
Golf Gum, #thegolfersgum, is the second product in the company’s repertoire, following Apollo Energy Gum which hit shelves in 2015. Widgery, who also founded Go Fast Energy Drink, created the product out of demand for a healthier, more portable energy supplement that could be taken and consumed on the go.
“Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a practicing professional, every golfer wants to do their best,” says Widgery. “Golf Gum delivers the focus, attentiveness, and competitive edge you need to lower your handicap.”
Golf Gum hits shelves on December 12, 2017, and can be purchased online at www.golfersgum.com. Local Colorado pro shops and select retailers will also carry the product, with nationwide expansion slated for early 2018.
