United Sports Brands will utilize its expertise, partnerships and experience to create new market opportunities for Glukos, enabling the brand's continued focus on ground-breaking product innovation.

About Glukos Energy

GLUKOS is an energy supplement brand that provides the ultimate source of natural energy for athletes to perform at their optimal levels. GLUKOS does this by capitalizing upon the science of the metabolic system and on the inherent properties of glucose. Glucose is extremely hydrophilic, meaning it is rapidly absorbed into the body — absorption begins immediately, in your mouth! Beyond that, glucose is your body’s preferred form of energy; unlike other sugars like Fructose and Sucrose, your body doesn’t have to break down glucose to use it, making it the most efficient form of energy you can consume. Initially developed to meet the needs of elite athletes, GLUKOS is now used by athletes of all levels, people with diabetes and as a daily hydration and energy supplement.
