LIVING ESSENTIALS 5-HOUR ENERGY Review by Marc Skaf

I first heard of this product during exams a few years ago, my friend was taking it to stay up to study and he said it worked great. Of course, you could use the energy for anything, but I am going to focus on how it benefits a work out. Other then helping you stay up late night, this will give you an energy boost any time of the day even if you're feeling groggy from the night before.

The 5-hour energy products are 2 ounce shots which you can either consume entirely for maximum energy or you can take half for moderate energy. I have always taken the whole shot since I always figure maximum energy is best, why not right? The product itself comes in 5 different flavours, I have had two of them: berry and lime. Although the lime flavour was better than the berry flavour, both tasted horrible....I guess it's why it comes in a 2 ounce shot size, cause this stuff is like drinking Buckley's (ok maybe, not that bad) but sticking with the Buckley's theme, this stuff tastes awful but it works. You can sometimes tell the effectiveness of a product if you can really taste the raw ingredients in it. And for this, you can definetly taste the caffeine and amino acid blend. That being said, I don't think it will matter too much which flavor you try, most likely you're not going to be excited about the taste. But that doesn't really matter, it just means you have to get it down quick and let it work its magic.

So sticking with what it does, I didn't want to take 5-hour energy after a good nights rest and saved it for a time when I stayed up late the night before so I would be at my maximum fatigue for the next day. I figure this would be a good test of effectiveness, mind you I didn't really try to take it when I wasn't tired. I took it about 20 minutes before going to the gym for a chest workout, and I thought this was enough time as many other pre-workout products call for 30-45 mins before workout. Chugging it was the hard part, if the lid had been a little more open it would make it go down a bit quicker but it kind of makes you need to sip it cause the opening is pretty small. So it seems like I have been bashing the product a little based on its taste, but the effects are great. It did deliver energy, and I had a good workout. Was able to get through my sets with energy and focus, as if I had taken a N.O. supplement. However, this isn't what many people believe, I think the misconception is that this has a tonne of caffeine, that's not to say it doesn't but that's not the only thing giving you energy. It also has a blend of vitamins and amino acids which are found in products such as N.O. Xplode which deliver large hits of energy. Back to the workout, I didn't do anything spectacular, no personal records, but it's what I didn't do that makes this supplement great. I didn't give up, I didn't cut my workout short, and I didn't do it with any less intensity then I would have if I got 8-hours of sleep the night before. This is the result I really wanted and what 5-Hour energy should be used for in terms of working out. Now the effects might have been reduced by working out, that is I don't think that you really get 5 hours of energy when you're exasperating yourself in the gym compared to staying up studying or just trying to do something with lower intesity. I was pretty tired after my workout, that doesn't mean I crashed, but I defintely wanted to relax and take it easy. The point is, if you're planning on having a late night and might need some extra energy the next day, you might want to keep 5-hour energy on hand.

This product has proven itself useful for many applications, I chose to look at the effectiveness it brought to workouts. It did the same thing it does for studying, recreation, or whatever you might need energy for; gave me energy to stay motivated and focused. The small bottles prove to be convenient and although you won't really like the flavour, you'll appreciate that the servings are small. I would suggest this for occasional use for days where you just don't have the energy to push through your workout, I don't suggest taking it every day though.
