Energy drink companies love their gamer customers. Serious gamers need that little extra boost to get them through marathon sessions. Many people who have tried various energy drinks will tell you they get jittery and antsy thanks to all those happy chemicals bouncing around in their bodies. Today, a company called Go GungHo claims its GungHo energy drink can improve a gamer’s concentration without making them hyper and unbalanced.
GungHo has the backing of Dr. Perry Renshaw who is a professor of psychiatry and director of magnetic resonance imaging at the University of Utah.
I understand it’s easy for a company to make up an expert, so I looked Dr. Renshaw up. It turns out he’s the real deal. Innovation Utah describes Dr. Renshaw as “one of the top experts in the world using a technique called magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which he uses to study the effect of drug abuse on chemicals in the brain.”
He’s also listed on the University of Utah’s Interdepartmental Program in Neuroscience page.
“Unlike other energy products that deal with short-term energy and no lasting impact on brain energy, GungHo will actually increase levels of critical neurotransmitters in the brain over time,” Dr. Renshaw said.
It’s worth pointing out GungHo’s claims have not been proven by the Food and Drug Administration.
If you’re feeling curious, you can purchase a single shot of GungHo for $2.99, a 12 pack for $34.99 or a 12 pack monthly supply of GungHo for $14.99 for the first month. Additional months will cost $29.99.
