I like the way they hide the amount of caffeine in these, by clumping it together with other junk and calling it an energy "blend". If you need a jump- get some caffeine via coffee or whatever. That's really the only source of "energy" from this stuff anyhow.

Energy Blend

Taurine, Malic Acid, Caffeine, Glucoronolactone, N-Acetyl L Tyrosine, L-Phenylalanine

2125mg

Actually all the vitamin B6 and B12 is where a large portion of the "energy" comes from.

It's not 2125mg of straight caffeine. That would be enough to kill some people and, for those who don't die, it would be rather unpleasant.

These were just on sport.woot! on Monday. I missed them then, in for 96 now.

Dude, that's the point I was making. You can't discern exactly what portion of that is actually caffeine.

B vitamins do not give you energy directly-they help biochemical processes in your body to use energy.This in no way is an immediate process, so taking those B vitamins now is going to take a while until it disseminates through your system before you get any effect. And will you perceive any noticeable effect from this- probably not , unless you were clearly deficient in those vitamins to begin with.

So basically all we are left with is caffeine as the only actual ingredient with any "energy" stimulant properties. You can get this from coffee. I don't have an issue with caffeine since I use it everyday (in the form of coffee). I just think that the amount of caffeine alone should separately be displayed for both safety and effectiveness- since that is clearly the sole truly active ingredient responsible for the stimulant effects in this product.

These drinks aren't harmful. No company would ever sell you something that would hurt you and then lie about it. Good thing we live in a society where we are protected by the FDA and USDA who have our best interests at heart.

Humans, if your tired, that’s your body saying "I need sleep", not "I could go for a collection of chemicals that artificially alters how my heart works". Try turning off the yogscast before 11 and act like an evolved race that understands the tradeoff of short term gains VS long term health.

Humans are designed to function well, and given enough exercise, healthy food and sleep they can do just that. Woot? more like boooooooo…t.

Exactly, a product that appeals to misinformed ed hardy crowd looking for a quick cool buzz. Remember when doctors recommended smoking to pregnant women? Pepperidge farms remembers and so do I. I would say dump this crap down the tolit woot, but that much in one sewer system would not be safe.

And stop wearing that monster energy hat/t-shirt, dum dum, it’s embarrassing and you will regret it.

Not really true:
A few things that people should understand about dietary supplements:

http://ods.od.nih.gov/Health_Information/ODS_Frequently_Asked_Questions.aspx

Research studies in people to prove that a dietary supplement is safe are not required before the supplement is marketed, unlike for drugs. It is the responsibility of dietary supplement manufacturers/distributors to ensure that their products are safe and that their label claims are accurate and truthful. If the FDA finds a supplement to be unsafe once it is on the market, only then can it take action against the manufacturer and/or distributor, such as by issuing a warning or requiring the product to be removed from the marketplace.

The manufacturer does not have to prove that the supplement is effective, unlike for drugs. The manufacturer can say that the product addresses a nutrient deficiency, supports health, or reduces the risk of developing a health problem, if that is true. If the manufacturer does make a claim, it must be followed by the statement "This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."

Couldn't find a FAQ on the stacker2.com site with any more specific information about how much of the "energy blend" is actually caffeine other than "Contains about as much caffeine as a cup of brewed coffee".

So just judge by what would happen if you drank 48 cups of coffee. I would guess at the very least, you would have to take a massive, neon-yellow piss.

Also - the grape flavor is "Extra Strength" and appears to have 2200 mg of the Energy Blend compared to 2125 mg in the Berry and Orange flavors (woot! is selling the Grape).

3.4% more is not much to make it "Extra Strength" really.

I ordered these a few days ago and they were just delivered. The outer package includes this statement:

"CAUTION: Contains about as much caffeine as a cup of premium brewed coffee. Limit or avoid products containing caffeine to avoid jitters, sleeplessness and rapid heartbeat. Stacker 2 Energy Shot contains niacin (as niacinamide) so some people may experience a flush feeling, hot sensation or redness of skin that lasts for a few minutes. Not for use by children, pregnant women or individuals sensitive to caffeine. Do not consume more than 1 bottle every 6 hours. No refrigeration necessary. Discard unused shot. Phenylketonurics: contains phenylaline."

True, but too much of something can be harmful. One of these shots is 8333% of your daily intake of B12 vitamins. Imagine taking one of these a day. That's over a year's worth of B12 vitamins in a week. You can take too much of a vitamin.

Personally, I prefer caffeinated teas over coffee.
