Product Overview

5-Hour Energy was formulated to help wake up your brain and provide the support to help you feel the way you want to feel - bright, alert, focused and energetic.* What you won't feel is jittery.* That's because, unlike other energy drinks, 5-Hour Energy doesn't jack you up with sugar and herbal stimulants. Instead, it's packed with stuff like B-vitamins and amino acids.

Drink it in seconds!

To get anything out of those canned energy drinks you have to force down a lot of liquid - up to 24 ounces for some of them. It takes just seconds to slam down a 2-ounce 5-Hour Energy shot. That means its energizing ingredients get into your system faster.

Feel it in minutes!

In just a short amount of time you may feel 5-Hour Energy brushing away the cobwebs and helping support the alert, focused feeling you want to get through your day.* Canned energy drinks give you a lot of sugar, caffeine and herbal stimulants which can make you feel jittery, shaky or tense. But 5-Hour Energy's blend of vitamins and amino acids was formulated to promote hours of "smooth energy."*

Support That Last For Hours!!*

We named it 5-Hour Energy for a reason. People typically feel an elevated sense of energy, focus and alertness support for about five hours.* Individual results will vary, of course. And when that feeling wears off, it does so gently.

What to Expect from 5-Hour Energy!

If you're not tired, why take an energy drink? 5-Hour Energy was designed to be functional, not recreational. It may help take you from tired and foggy to bright and focused.* But it won't take you beyond that.

Afraid to try 5-Hour Energy?

You may have read some scary things about other energy drinks and are afraid to try 5-Hour Energy. The knock on other drinks is their large amounts of sugar, caffeine and herbal stimulants such as guarana and ginseng. But 5-Hour Energy contains no sugar, no herbal stimulants and only as much caffeine as one cup of coffee. The active ingredients in 5-Hour Energy can be obtained in everyday foods, or is a nutrient your body makes naturally.

My husband and I both use this product at least 3 times a week. It just gives that edge when you feel your energy giving out. Then 2 hours later.....you think...WOW...I feel so much better but how. Then you realize the 5 hour really helped. Before workouts we mix 8-10oz water with 1 5 hr energy and 1 isopure fruit protein drink and sip on this before and during workout. I just helps keep the energy going with hydration of water and protein for muscles.

Here are some its advantages: 1. Three different voice alarm (for different metals), and the console can display the metal type. 2. The connecting pod is adjustable---So whatever your height is, it will be suitable for you. 3. Low Battery Indicator - Let you know when it is time to replace the batteries. 4. Automatic sensitivity adjustment and horizon adjustment 5. The price is low. We have our own shopping website and factory so the price is lower than other sellers.

The subject of today’s review will be a popular product that is sold everywhere. When I say everywhere, I mean every gas station, GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Convenience Store, you think of it its in there. Today’s product is Living Essentials 5 Hour Energy. I’ve tried 5 Hour Energy a few times and never really caught onto why people are obsessed with it. I actually didn’t even want to write this review because I really don’t like the product, but my girlfriend convinced me to write it since she is one of the (I’m sure) millions of people who can’t get enough of 5 Hour Energy. So let’s get right into it, here is the Supplement Label for 5 Hour Energy: Serving Size – 1 Bottle (2 Fl Oz), Calories – 4, and the ingredients are as follows, Niacin (As Niacinamide), Vitamin B6 (As Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 (As Cyanocobalamin), and lastly Sodium. 5 Hour Energy also contains an Energy Blend, which includes Taurine, Glucuronolactone, Malic Acid, N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, L-Phenylalanine, Caffeine, and Citicoline. Here are the ingredients broken down one by one. First we have Niacin (As Niacinamide), which may help lower bad cholesterol and improve good cholesterol. Next is Vitamin B6 (As Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), which is necessary for Amino Acid Metabolism. The next ingredient on the label is Folic Acid, or Vitamin B-9, which helps in cellular growth, as well as red blood cell production. Next we have Vitamin B12 (As Cyanocobalamin), which is a man-made form, and this is necessary for the formation of Red Blood Cells. And lastly under the regular ingredients on the label we have Sodium, or Salt, which is part of the electrolytes which keep the body hydrated, too much salt may have an adverse effect on the body. Now for the Energy Blend, the first ingredient under this Blend is Taurine, which is usually billed to be able to provide you with energy, but those claims have been proven false. What Taurine will actually do for your body is remove fatty liver deposits, preventing liver disease, also possibly reducing cirrhosis and it has been proven beneficial to lowering blood pressure. Next is Glucuronolactone, which has been claimed to detoxify the body (These claims have not yet been proven true). Next we have Malic Acid, which is used to flavor foods, it is also sometimes found on labels under the name “E296.” The next ingredient under this blend is N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, which can be synthesized into the body by Phenylalanine, can help improve your mood when faced with a stressful situation. Next up is L-Phenylalanine, which is said to have antidepressant effects on the body. Next up is Caffeine, which provides large amounts of energy to the body while also increasing mental alertness while also fighting off muscle fatigue. And lastly we have Citicoline, has been shown to improve focus and mental energy, while also being a possible medication for those with A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder). Now, I am not a fan of 5 Hour Energy in the least bit, but after researching the ingredients, you really can’t say that this product is “bad” for you. The only ingredients that may show negative side effects are Caffeine and Citicoline, and even those side effects wouldn’t be all that bad. I must say my experiences have been negative with 5 Hour Energy so far because I do not have a particular liking for the taste of the product, and despite my high tolerance for Caffeine and stimulants in general, this is the only “Energy Drink” that has ever given me the shakes or made me feel nauseous and lightheaded. Now, this wasn’t just a one time thing, I have tried 5 Hour Energy on many occasions and every time I get the same results. I don’t know what it is but because of my experiences I really don’t like the product. So from my personal experience standpoint I will give 5 Hour Energy a 3/10, but if I were to give a neutral review of this product based on the ingredients, I would give 5 Hour Energy a 8/10. http://fitnessguru33.wordpress.com/2011/11/27/living-essentials-5-hour-energy-review/

Orange is the best flavor. The berry flavor is too strong. Let me tell you something. I worked at a poultry plant and would drink these when I would have the burned out feeling. It works. After drinking it, I could feel it in seconds. Thats how fast this thing works. Don't listen to all those people that post bad things about a product until you have tried it yourself. I now use these to work my 12 hour shifts all the time.
