"RESPAWN was created to address the clear market for food and beverage products in gaming that help players maintain focus and mental agility during gameplay, without the intense rush provided by many energy products," says Sean Driscoll, Senior Product Evangelist for Respawn Ltd.. Rather than infusing the gum with caffeine or sugar, RESPAWN focused on B vitamins and other nutrients.
