Are you a fan of energy drinks? I'm not. That fact that they contain so much sugar scares me. I feel like I may have a heart attack if I have one. Even though I'm not a fan of them, I've been so busy recently and just don't have the energy to get everything done, So I've considered using them for a much needed boost. 5-hour ENERGY isn't like other energy drinks out there on the market, this one's different. 5-hour ENERGY contains 0 sugar, 0 herbal stimulants and only has 4 calories.
The first time I took a 5-hour ENERGY was about 3 weeks ago. I was so tired and had a deadline to meet. I took it in the evening and planned to pull an all nighter. Within 10 minutes of drinking my first bottle... I passed out. I was out for the night and was not happy about that. My boyfriend told me that the drink can have adverse affects if you're sleep deprived. That makes sense, I suppose. A few days later I had another deadline to meet so I gave it another shot. This time I didn't fall asleep but I didn't feel energized. I was awake but with not much energy. I felt as if the drink just prevented me from falling asleep instead of energizing me. I've heard of certain products having adverse affects on people and I guess I'm one of "those" people.
Even though it didn't work on me like it does with most people, I felt comfortable taking the shot because it contained no sugar and wasn't loaded with calories.
Philosoraptor asked a great question. Do you know the answer?
