SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The GLUKOS Company Inc., an all-natural sports nutrition brand making high-quality energy and protein products for world-class athletes, is proud to announce the use of GLUKOS by seven athletes from the United States who earned a collective five Olympic medals.
It became clear the implementation of GLUKOS products in training had assisted their impressive finishes, which earned them many Olympic medals, while smashing personal records in Rio. GLUKOS energy, which provides these athletes twice the energy in half the time of leading products on the market, optimally fuels the body while training and during competition so that it's performing at its optimal level. GLUKOS protein – the fastest protein on the market – assists Olympians in recovering quickly and more efficiently after each practice session, workout or competition. Extraordinary results in these athletes' respective fields are representative of the benefits of using a product compiled solely of the "good" sugar Glucose, such as GLUKOS, to provide an optimal fuel source for the body throughout.
"World-class endurance athletes possess the most extreme physical and mental toughness, but it takes more than that to compete at the highest level, which is where an all-natural performance energy and protein product like GLUKOS comes into play," said Mark Jensen, GLUKOS founder. "GLUKOS products provide the fastest natural energy and recovery for these athletes' bodies, while continuing to set that standard ensuring these athletes perform at their peak when competing."
One of the many impressive GLUKOS athletes, Jared Ward, competed in his 6th marathon race at the Olympics and finished with a personal best of 2:11:30. Ward, with the help of GLUKOS gels, earned a 6th place finish and was the 2nd American to cross the line in Rio.
"The body takes a brutal beating during the races and I have to remain strategic about the fuel I insert into my body for energy," Ward said. "The switch to GLUKOS products during training and races was crucial for me. I am very particular about what I put into my body and knowing GLUKOS gels are all natural, it was a no-brainer. These gels ensure I stay at the top of my game and run the fastest against the best runners in the world."
In addition to the impressive performances at the Olympic Games, the GLUKOS athlete roster has been smashing records on the international endurance circuit. The roster includes professional triathlete Liz Lyles, who recently set the course record at the Ironman Brazil - South American Championship, along with Mary Beth Ellis, who did the same at Ironman Maastricht.
