European retailer and brand GymBeam has moved into the gaming market this week with a completely new product, available in two versions and branded very differently from your typical GymBeam supplement. XBeam is the company’s entry into the growing world of gaming products, built to support energy and focus, and you can choose to enjoy it as a flavored powder or in capsule format with a slightly simpler formula.
GymBeam’s XBeam relies on a variety of vitamins, minerals, and some common energy and focus ingredients, which again vary slightly between the powder and capsule variants. As mentioned, the powder XBeam is the more advanced experience, with more active ingredients and better dosages. It comes with B vitamins, a gram of tyrosine, 400mg of acetyl-l-carnitine, 100mg of rhodiola, 150mg of bacopa, and a moderate 150mg of caffeine.
GymBeam built XBeam to support energy, focus, cognition, stress, and performance, and you can see all of the ingredients supporting that in the facts panel above. That formula is for the powder version of XBeam, with the capsule alternative pictured below, where you can see obvious differences.
GymBeam’s XBeam capsules do indeed have fewer active ingredients, some identical dosages, and also some lower ones compared to the powder. The product has the same 200mg of ashwagandha, 33% more bacopa but no tyrosine, half the acetyl-l-carnitine, 20% less rhodiola, and two-thirds the caffeine at 100mg. The powder does appear to be the more comprehensive experience, and fittingly, it is more expensive.
Directly through GymBeam’s online store, the XBeam gaming powder supplement will cost you €27.95 (27.77 USD), and that is for a tub of 40 full servings in three flavors; Green Apple, Strawberry Kiwi, and Wild Berries. The capsules are about 30% cheaper overall at €19.95 (19.82 USD), but they do have 25% fewer servings, which actually brings their prices per serving that little bit closer to €0.70 versus €0.67.
