Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is GRIZZ Energy Gum?

GRIZZ Energy Gum is a functional, sugar- and fat-free energy gum with 80 mg caffeine, 20 mg taurine, and 20 mg guarana. GRIZZ Energy Gum works within 5 minutes and provides a fast and long-lasting energy boost. This allows you to enjoy, for example, more energy, better concentration, increased endurance, more strength, faster muscle recovery, and better focus.

… all the above and a fresh breath which of course is never a bad idea!

How does it taste?

GRIZZ Energy Gum has a characteristic and refreshing mint flavor that gives you an energy boost and fresh breath at the same time. In the beginning, you can taste a delicious fresh mint flavor, followed by a slightly herby/ bitter taste, this taste means that the energy ingredients are being released and starting to do their job (caffeine has a bitter taste of itself), the bitterness disappears after a while and what remains is the typical, fresh GRIZZ taste.

 

How much caffeine does GRIZZ Energy Gum contain?

A piece of GRIZZ Energy Gum contains 80 mg caffeine, 20 mg taurine and 20 mg guarana

Why should you chew GRIZZ Energy Gum over drinking an energy drink?

Where shall we start? The effect of energy drinks depends on many factors, for example:

  • How quickly you drink them
  • Your metabolism
  • How much / little you ate that day

Because of these factors, you never know exactly when and how much you will feel the effect of an energy drink. This can differ each time without you being able to directly control it. So much for the technical part, now the obvious advantages:

  • Price to quality ratio. Per chewing gum, you get the same amount of caffeine as an energy drink, but the price per GRIZZ Energy Gum package with 7 (!) Chewing gums (80mg caffeine each) is €2.45 and an average energy drink costs around € 1.40 PER CAN. Just buy 7 energy drinks….
  • Faster absorption - energy gum is absorbed through the mucous membranes so that the effect can be felt within 5 minutes. Energy drinks pass through the gastrointestinal tract, a process that takes much, much longer to be absorbed into the body. This can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes.
  • No added sugars - completely sugar-free so you don't get a DIP after consumption! #skipthedip
  • GRIZZ Energy Gum does not contain any secretive, harmful ingredients
  • There is no deposit on packets of energy chewing gum
  • Tooth-friendly
  • Easy on the go – no litter
  • Not liquid, so fewer visits to the toilet
  • Easy during exercise, small, compact, and therefore easy to carry with you. Ever tried running with a can of energy drink in your hand? Or what about mastering your tennis skills with a can hidden in your pocket? The photos are certainly welcome!
What are the cognitive benefits that you can get from GRIZZ Energy Gum?

The cognitive benefits that GRIZZ Energy Gum can help to promote are better focus and concentration, improved memory recall, better reaction speed, and reduced stress to name a few. These are all based on independent studies found here, here, here and here.

What is the patented production process?

GRIZZ Energy Gum is produced in a patented production process that produces at room temperature. This ensures the preservation and full effectiveness of the ingredients. Cheaper and less-effective methods produce at temperatures up to 120 °C.

Where is GRIZZ Energy Gum manufactured?

We are proud to say that GRIZZ Energy Gum is an energy gum produced entirely in Europe

How does GRIZZ Energy Gum differ from other gums on the market?

Best value for money. GRIZZ Energy Gum contains a high dose of caffeine (80mg) - where other energy gums sometimes only have 12.5mg per energy gum - and the least sweeteners (2). Many other energy gums contain an average of 3+ sweeteners, unfortunately often including less-healthy sweeteners such as aspartame and acesulfame-K. The price per GRIZZ Energy Gum package (€ 2.45 incl. VAT), combined with the above information, makes us stand out compared to the other energy gums on the market.

Functioning

How does GRIZZ Energy Gum work?

GRIZZ Energy Gum is, as the name implies, an energy chewing gum. The caffeine in GRIZZ is directly absorbed into the blood via the oral mucosa. This new technique is the fastest way to get caffeine into the system. With energy drinks, coffee, and green tea, on the other hand, caffeine is absorbed via the gastrointestinal tract. This will take much longer, sometimes up to 45 minutes.

 

When should I use GRIZZ Energy Gum?

GRIZZ Energy Gum is great when you need a quick energy boost. Whether it’s right before a training session or a match, or during a long meeting, working from home and beat the afternoon slump #skipthedip, jet-lagged, while gaming, driving, studying, partying, or getting up, GRIZZ is there for you when you need a quick, long-lasting energy boost! You absorb the ingredients within 5 minutes, which makes GRIZZ Energy Gum the perfect energy boost.

 

How many pieces of GRIZZ Energy Gum should I chew?

We recommend that you start with one gum. Depending on your sensitivity to caffeine, you can always take a second one. Our recommendation is a maximum of 4 gums per day.

How long should I chew on a piece of GRIZZ Energy Gum?

From a purely technical point of view, 99% of the caffeine in GRIZZ Energy Gum is absorbed into the blood via the oral mucosa within 5 minutes. You no longer have to chew the energy gum to feel the effect. Besides the energy boost, GRIZZ also gives you a delicious fresh mint flavor in your mouth, so you don't HAVE to chew it for long, but you CAN chew it as long as you like it.

 

Are there any side effect when using GRIZZ Energy Gum?

Besides the great energy boost? No.

GRIZZ Energy Gum consists of natural ingredients approved by the food and commodities authorities and is completely safe for consumption. Of course, always take a look at the packaging or scroll down to “Who should chew GRIZZ Energy Gum” to find out GRIZZ Energy Gum is also suitable for you.

How long does the energy boost last?

Caffeine remains in your blood for an average of 4 to 5 hours. The duration of the energy boost that you get from the energy gum depends on your metabolism and weight and differs per person. After a few hours, the effect will gradually diminish, and your body will return to its original energy level.
