5-Hour Energy Extra Strength
Energy supplements have come a long way. It wasn't too long ago that if you wanted a supplement strictly for giving you a big boost in energy you didn't have very many choices. There were harsh caffeine tablets like the kind sold in drugstores. Or you could drink coffee. Then came various types of “diet pills” which were caffeine with other odds and ends thrown in. Then came “energy drinks” which were caffeine and sugar, with other odds and ends thrown in. The other odds and ends included herbs and other nutrients, but in token amounts unlikely to be making a meaningful difference. This earlier generation of energy supplements may have been better than nothing, but for many people these products were hard to use. For example, tablets release slowly and unpredictably, their effects can take too long to kick in and then take too long to wear off. Tablets don't offer much flexibility with the dose, either. Energy drinks were an improvement in some ways but most have added sugar, something just about everyone is trying to avoid. Then came the sugar-free energy-drinks, which were a little better still but still problematic for many users. Whether you use sugar or not, because of the extreme bitterness of caffeine and other nutrients, it's hard to make an energy drink taste good enough to drink an entire 12 oz bottle. As a result, many people tried energy drinks, but couldn't get past the taste of energy drinks or found it hard to consume a full serving or enough to get the effects they want. And so they don't use them, which is a shame because a boost in energy when you really need it is invaluable for your training, your performance at work, or in other situations.
5-Hour Energy Supplement is an innovative little product that really solves all of these problems. Because it works so well and is so easy to use, 5-Hour Energy drinks have enjoyed an explosion in popularity as many people realize it's just the kind of energy supplement they need; it works well, sugar-free, tastes good, you don't have to drink a huge bottle of it, it's small and discrete and easy to bring with you anywhere.
While no one uses products like 5-Hour energy for their taste, even those who don't like commercial energy drinks shouldn't mind the taste of the 5-Hour drinks. Because of its small serving size, formulators were able to include robust amounts of all the best energy nutrients and still give 5-Hour Chaser drinks a good taste. But even if you're not crazy about the taste, it's not a hard product to use since there's only a small amount to consume. And the liquid format means users can consume all or just a portion of each bottle, which is great for those very sensitive to stimulants.
Unlike tablets, the liquid formula kicks in quickly making Chaser 5-Hour a really good choice when you need an energy product to kick in around a specific time, such as for your 2 PM workout or your 6 AM jog. You won't stand around waiting to notice something as sometime happens with capsule and tablet products.
In terms of ingredients, the Chaser 5-Hour drinks are much more than another "caffeine, etc." formula. There is caffeine, but also robust amounts of B-vitamins and amino acids. These make all the difference because they equip the brain and nervous system to best respond to the caffeine. These vitamins and amino acids are a big reason why the Chaser drinks are able to give you long sustained energy, not the typical caffeine peak-then-crash. If you've been looking for the right energy supplement, but haven't had luck with capsules tablets or other drinks, try the Chaser 5-Hour Energy Drinks, they're different and they're a big improvement over the older-generation products.

5 Hour Energy
When describing the 5-Hour Energy feeling, some people say it's "like the sun coming up in my head." That's because when you're feeling groggy and lethargic, 5-Hour Energy wakes up your brain and gets you back to feeling the way you want to feel - bright, alert, focused and energetic. What you won't feel is jittery, or - crash. That's because, unlike other energy drinks, 5-Hour Energy doesn't jack you up with sugar, caffeine and herbal stimulants. Instead, it's packed with stuff that's good for you - B-vitamins, amino acids and enzymes.
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.
In a few minutes you can feel 5-Hour Energy brushing away the cobwebs and helping you regain the alert, focused feeling you need 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, amino acids and enzymes gives you hours of "smooth energy."
We named it 5-Hour Energy for a reason. People typically feel an elevated sense of energy, focus and alertness for about five hours. Individual results will vary, of course. And when that feeling wears off, it does so gently. Other energy drinks can make you feel jittery and tense for a short time then let you down with a crash leaving you feeling worse than before.
