Driveforce is a new sports nutrition company whose product is geared towards helping golfers when they use the company’s pre-round performance blend drink.
In the last few years, we have seen several startup companies enter the golf market with claims of their product helping golfers to focus more, have more energy, and in not-so-many-words play better golf by drinking, eating, or taking some sort of concoction with ingredients from caffeine to electrolytes to coconut water. The latest company to join the fray is Driveforce.
This newly formed enterprise specializes in creating functional health products, and this week it introduced DF-18. Driveforce says its pre-round performance blend will sustain a golfer’s focus, hydration, and stamina for hours while playing golf. And it does so without the use of added sugar or caffeine. Instead, Driveforace says it uses a multitude of health-promoting ingredients designed to be mixed with a bottle of water and consumed before a round of golf.
So what is in its mixture?
Well, here you go…
Arugula Extract, Calcium Beta-Hydroxybutyrate, Pink Salt, Magnesium Glycinate, Potassium, Agmatine Sulfate, Taurine, Glycerol, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, Ashwagandha, N-Actylcysteine, L-Theanine, Theobromine, Vitamin C, Zinc Citrate, Pantothenic acid (Calcium Pantothenate), Riboflavin, Choline Citrate, Thiamin HCL, Folate, Methylcobalamin, and Biotin.
I know, a lot to digest but according to co-founder Zach Williams, he began designing a formula to address specifically the wear and tear on the body and mind a golfer experiences during a round of golf.
“For a game that has evolved where golfers are now training like athletes in other sports, it was shocking to discover how little was being done for them in this area. DF-18 is about bringing golf into the 21st century of sports nutrition,” said Williams. “DF-18 came together in pieces. First, it needed to sustain player hydration, then provide focus and calm without over-stimulation. After that, it needed to reduce fatigue and support their cardiovascular system and finally, it needed to do all this across a four to six-hour period during a round of golf in a single serving.”
Williams, together with more than a dozen LPGA/PGA professionals, amateurs, and instructors refined the formula to a point where all believed DF-18 was ready. “After nearly a year of work, we’re happy to say that we’ve created a first-of-its-kind product. Its healthy ingredients are designed for all levels of golfers and approved by golf professionals.”
But wait there’s more…
So while DF-18 will not make you a better golfer per se, Drvieforce says it will at least help you throughout your round to be more focused and help to maintain stamina and hydration during 18 holes of golf. Which we all know eventually every golfer hits the wall during his or her round. Away from the course Driveforce says DF-18 supports a healthy immune system and increasing the supply of nitric oxide in the body, and according to the company DF-18 may help to regulate healthy blood flow and blood pressure, and a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.
Currently, Driveforce DF-18 is only available in Pineapple Passion Fruit, with more flavors to come, and costs $3.99 for a 20-gram packet. As a side note, actual Passion Fruit has been known to increase blood pressure when consumed in large quantities.
