Opinion on my homemade gel

This recipe was concocted from merging several on the internet. The amazing thing is it actually tastes pretty good. What do you all think in terms of purpose though. Is there anything I should add, or change doses of? This is per serving.

1 t - Agave Nectar
3 t - Brown Rice Syrup
1 t - Natural Cocoa
Pinch of salt

Obviously the cocoa is for flavor only, but it does give it a good taste. This is the unsweetened cocoa used for baking.

I recommend adding "No Salt" or substituting "Low Salt", for regular salt. That would give you some potassium.
