If you've ever tried to workout while taking huge doses of caffeine or 5-hour energy you'll notice that you'll get very tired and very sore during and after your workout, but you won’t be able to sleep well. If you're planning on taking 5-hour energy to help power you through a work out I suggest trying a pre-workout, like this pre-workout, which is like the ones the Olympic athletes use, instead of this energy shot. There are no harmful fillers or chemical and it's formulated specifically to boost your performance in the gym, instead of just keeping you awake and alert. Some people actually use this pre-workout in lieu of caffeine, but I don't recommend this unless you're working out in the morning. I actually do use this method: I take my pre-workout, then go to the gym, then go to work. The energy I get from the pre-workout lasts throughout midday. I would not recommend taking both at the same time, you will get jittery and feel like crap frankly.
In summation, 5-hour energy works like a charm but has its limitations and the drawbacks. If you want something a little more formulated just take a pre-workout like the one I mentioned, or do a little more research into the concept to get an idea of what might work best for you.
All I know is that they are super expensive per ounce for a drink, even an energy type drink, and they didn't do one thing for me other than quench my thirst for 10 seconds.
I'm giving it two stars because it tasted decent. The bottle was very easy to find on the go at gas stations. It's very small and therefore very portable. Unlike energy drinks and coffee you can keep this in your purse or pants at work so if it does work for you it's really easy to access it anywhere because it is so easy to carry with you.
It's also a very small amount so it's really easy to drink the entire "dose" at one time which is much easier than a big coffee or energy drink. That's also got to be much healthier than those things on your teeth.
Overall this is a good product but the fact that even drinking 2 or 3 of these at a time doesn't do anything for me at all no matter how tired I am or how awake I am is a huge deal. Therefore I can't recommend it because I've seen no proof that it works even a little bit.
