Just like in sports nutrition, video gamers also need to pay attention to their health, as they’re often spending long hours gaming, especially during competitions. Read on to learn more about a new line of products by Skinz.gg, specially designed for gamers in mind. Skinz.gg, a company that boasts to be the first and one of its kind to addresses the wellness of gamers, and announced a newly launched line of products for the 2.6 billion of the world’s population who are passionate about gaming. The most important areas addressed by these products are energy levels for increased performance, sleep, pain, and focusing.
The competitive gamers' customer base has been a coveted market by many supplement companies as of late, and the reasons for this are obvious. There have been many clinical studies that proved some natural ingredients help the eyes remain healthy, whereas nootropics are known to improve the cognitive function of those who are spending too much time in front of TV and computer screens. Even if they have a sedentary lifestyle, many gamers are still interested in their own health and what they could do to preserve it. Here’s what Skinz.gg’s President and co-founder, Gary Kleinman, had to say about this and his company’s new products line:
“Stereotypes persist that video gamers don’t care about their health and wellness and that they just sit around eating junk food and drinking soda and energy drinks. This could not be further from the truth. Nearly 200 Universities offer around $15 million per year for video gaming scholarships, and there is serious competition for these funds. This is one of many factors driving gamers’ increased interest in health and wellness. Just like athletes in other sports, video gamers are very aware of the impact of proper health and wellness on their performance. They’re seeking out ways to address the physical, mental, and emotional challenges that come with high-level gaming.”
