GOOD GUM and sports
The use of GOOD GUM during sportive activities varies depending on the athlete and the type of sport. GOOD GUM can be consumed before, during and after sportive activities.
GOOD GUM and Anti-doping
GOOD GUM does not contain any doping substances. In January 2004, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed caffeine from the list of doping substances. The International Olympics Committee (IOC) agreed to this decision.
Scientific Opinion on the safety of caffeine
Many authorities around the world have looked at the effects of caffeine. For example, Health Canada scientists conducted an extensive review of the scientific literature on caffeine (Nawrot et al., 2003). Based on this review, they concluded that the general population of healthy adults is not at risk for potential adverse effects from caffeine if they limit their consumption to 400 mg per day. This is in line with similar findings from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in 2015. However, pregnant and breast-feeding women should limit their caffeine intake to 200 mg.
One package of GOOD GUM contains 400 mg caffeine. Each gum contains 50 mg caffeine. 2 pieces of gum equals one large cup of coffee. Effects shows within 5 - 10 minutes. We do not recommend more than 8 pieces a day.
