      I had seen this product advertised on TV and in magazines, and I decided to try it for myself. Usually I can’t tolerate energy products very well because they usually make me shaky, anxious, or jittery. Sometimes they even make me feel sick. Usually in the afternoon I need a bit of an energy boost, and I have tried products with lots of sugar and/or caffeine, and those usually give me a quick jolt of energy, but then I crash an hour later. This product claimed to have no crashing effect, and the energy drink was in a tiny bottle rather that a large can like some others, so that appealed to me too. It was more like taking a “shot” instead of having to down a whole

      drink.

      I first purchased just one little bottle to see if I liked it rather than purchasing the entire 12 pack. I was glad that I could purchase the item individually so I could try it out. The bottle is really small, but the directions say to just take half of it at a time rather than drinking the whole thing at once. The first time I tried it, I wasn’t too fond of the taste. It is very, very sweet. I almost felt like I should dilute it in some water to get the right taste, but since it was only one swallow, it was tolerable.

      A few minutes after taking it, I did notice that I perked up slightly. The results were similar to drinking a cup ...


      • of coffee or a can of soda pop with caffeine. What I really liked was that I didn’t seem to get jittery with this product like I usually do. The directions said that it was best to take this on an empty stomach, and I was worried that doing that would lead to the jitters, but it didn’t.

        Even though this product says there is no “crash”, I felt like I did crash a bit a couple hours after taking it, so I finished the bottle at that time. Again I noticed that I had enough of a boost to get me through the afternoon. This product didn’t seem to interfere with my night time sleep like other products can, so that was a big plus for me.

        Even though I had take 2 doses of the energy drink, I slept fine that night.

        Now I use this product occasionally when I need a boost. I don’t use it every day, but if I am overly tired or need more energy, I will stop at the drugstore and pick up a bottle. I have found that the taste is better if I mix it with a half a glass of ice water, otherwise it’s too strong for me. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a quick energy boost without the negative side effects that other energy products can have. This product doesn’t last 5 hours like it claims, but it will give you a quick boost for a short time.
