5-Hour Energy Extra Strength Overview
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 Extra Strength Description from 5 Hour Energy
Don't drink energy drinks. Drink 5-Hour Energy.
Until afternoon naps become an accepted part of the work day you may need a little help staying sharp and alert. Coffee and soda help a little, but how long do they last before you're back for more? But with a 5-Hour Energy shot you can leave grogginess behind and sail through your day without feeling jittery, tense or crashing.
Drink it in seconds
When you need an extra boost you don't want to wait. You want to feel more energetic now. A 5-Hour Energy shot takes just seconds to drink, so it gets in your system fast. Typical canned energy drinks are eight to 32 ounces - and they're carbonated - so they take a lot more time to finish. In the mean time you won't be feeling any more energized.
Feel it in minutes
In minutes you can feel a 5-Hour Energy shot working, helping you recapture the bright, alert feeling you need to power through your day. If you were drinking a canned energy drink, you'd still be drinking.
Lasts for hours
A 5-Hour Energy shot can help you feel awake and alert for hours. What you won't feel is "jacked up." That's because 5-Hour Energy gives you "smooth energy" that lasts. It wears off gradually, not with a sudden crash. That's because 5-Hour Energy is sugar free.
