Energy gum, also known as caffeinated gum, is a type of energy supplement sold in the form of gums, which provide physical and mental stimulation and instant burst of energy. It helps in reducing the effects of fatigue, sleep, and deprivation. Energy gum is prepared by softening the gum base followed by infusing it with other formulation ingredients such as caffeine, taurine and B-vitamins. It improves mental and cognitive performance by delivering caffeine, which is effective for stimulating physical vigilance. The other health benefits associated with energy gum include improved reaction time, alertness, concentration, and prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Sportsperson and military personnel are the traditional users of energy gum for obtaining instant energy and relieve mental and physical stress. In addition, increase in sport participation rate and surge in the number of fitness centers in countries such as U.S., Brazil, Germany, UK, Australia, China, and India fuel the growth of the energy gum market.
Energy gum is majorly consumed by individuals before and after fitness training/exercise regime to increase stamina and improve their overall performance.

Countries such as India, China and Brazil have heavily invested in promoting national and international sports. The number of youngsters choosing sports as a career option, especially in developing countries has increased in the past few decades, which in turn has fueled the demand for sports nutrition and fitness supplements.
