GLUKOS, founded by Mark Jensen, a former collegiate runner and Ironman competitor, is an energy product based on glucose--the form of energy used by all life on earth, and the only energy your body can really use without having to expend more energy to break it down. Fructose and sucrose have to be digested, but glucose passes though the cell wall immediately, giving you that boost you need right away. In addition to glucose, GLUKOS products all contain critical electrolytes, which are electrically charged minerals in the body. Electrolytes are vital to health and act as chemical messengers in the body carrying electrical impulses from the nerves to control all tissue function and movement. An imbalance of any of the electrolytes can lead to serious disruptions in physiologic function and maintenance of the body's fluid levels. Not good.
Glukos Tablets can be used two ways: simply eat one and take some water with the tablet. The glucose immediately enters your bloodstream and you'll get that boost you need. If you're setting out on a ride, first dissolve a tablet in 2oz of water, then top off your bottle. The tablets are easy to carry, so you'll never have to think twice about how you'll find fuel on the road. It's in your pocket.
