LIVING ESSENTIALS 5-HOUR ENERGY Review by Steven Sidorski
My name is Stephen Sidorski and the product I am reviewing is 5-Hour Energy by Living Essentials and the flavour is Lemon Lime. Before you read any further, I wish to send a warning for those of you who are phenylketonurics as this product contains phenylalanine. This product does not have sugar or aspartame.
My first impression is that it opens quite easily and is environmentally-friendly because if you open it right you are only throwing away one piece because the plastic that you use to remove the top stays attached to the rest of the plastic which covers the bottle. So in summary, the packaging sticks together over the bottle.
The taste is very good and probably just as important so is the after-taste. It is a pinkish-red liquid which resembles the taste of sugarless lemonade or watered down CoolAide. It definitely does not have the sour taste of a lemon or a lime. It is more than good enough to be tasted without having to mix it with any other liquids. I also admit it has an addicting taste so one could get quite used to using this product as their daily source of caffeine. As it says on http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/livingessential/5hour.html one serving of this product contains about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. For what 5-Hour Energy does, its a slightly better value than coffee and is much better for you and lasts a lot longer!
I had some to wake up and believe me I feel quite refreshed! I am the kind of person that usually takes awhile to completely wake up so I would say this product is just right for me. With taxes and shipping, the price works out to just under $3 per bottle. The only other place I found a better price was at this gym I workout at called McFit where they sold it for $2. I think they did this because they wanted people to buy an Orange membership where you pay more per month but you get to buy liquids such as water, energy drinks and juice for half the price of people with a cheaper Green membership. Anyway, once they figured out that they got enough people to buy Orange memberships, they stopped selling 5-Hour Energy completely. They would normally have sold out of them by supper time. Now the only reason I still have this preferred Orange membership is I to get to tan as much as I want without having to pay $4 per session.
Anyway, I took my second bottle that Matt gave me because he also wanted to see how it affected my workout. Let me tell you that I was able to lift more weight than normal and workout longer. It also helped my mood. The best part though is that I did not feel a crash like I normally do when I had drank a coffee or a diet pop beforehand. If you want it to last longer than five hours my advice is to drink lots of water with it to water it down and then enjoy yourself longer!
5-Hour Energy is made in the USA. It is imported by Living Essentials, Novi, MI, 48377. 5-Hour Energy is distributed by Hilary’s Salesmaster, Inc. Concord, ON L4K 4G4. The phone number is 1-800-668-6451.
