Game Suppli: vitamin supplements for gamers

As gamers, we have a sort of reputation for being unhealthy. I’m not saying that all of us slam bottles Mountain Dew and cram a slice of pizza in between rounds, but you know what I’m talking about. There’s gamers out there than can use all the help they can get.

What would it take get a gamer to take a vitamin supplement? Telling him that it would help his or her game might do the trick, right? Maybe that was the idea behind Game Suppli, a vitamin supplement developed specifically for gamers.

Trends in Japan says that there are two varieties of this Japanese product. The Blueberry one is designed for long play and eye stamina, while the DHA variety is packed with omega-3 fatty acids to help improve concentration. They’re being sold in packets of 30 for 880 yen, and are intended to be taken twice daily.

What do you think? Is it silly to think that little pills will improve your game? Or is this a trick to get unhealthy gamers to take their vitamins? What ever happened to Flintstone vitamins? The purple ones were good!
