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 powders are perfect for the athlete on the go. Just fill your water bottle, pour in the Glukos powder flavor of your choice, shake and go. With orange, lemon, and fruit punch flavors, you'll have the best tasting water bottle on your group ride, and even better, you'll know you're hydrating with optimal fuel. The rest is up to you.
