The simple answer is “When you’re tired.” Depending on your lifestyle, here are additional ideas of when you may want to take a 5-hour ENERGY® shot: When you get up: Not a morning person? Is coffee not doing it for you anymore? Try waking up and taking a 5-hour ENERGY® shot. It’s a great way to start your day off feeling alert and energized.
After lunch: Tired of that 2:30 FEELING®? You’re not alone. In fact, research shows that more than 70 percent of us hit the wall after lunch. Let a 5-hour ENERGY® shot help you leap over that wall instead of crashing into it. Before your workout: Want to get in shape but having trouble staying motivated? Make 5-hour ENERGY® shots part of your lifestyle and get the energy boost you need to get fit.
During sports: Don’t just get in the zone; stay there longer with 5-hour ENERGY® shots’ combination of an energized feeling of clarity and alertness.
When traveling: Anyone who travels frequently knows how tiring it can be. Whether you’re on business or on vacation, a 5-hour ENERGY® shot can help you stay alert and energized wherever you may be headed.
On weekends: Weekends can be busy. So, grab a 5-hour ENERGY® shot when you’re “on the go” and get the boost you need to tackle your “to-do” list.
5-hour ENERGY® products were created for hard-working, busy adults, but everyone is different. Some people can take the maximum daily amount of 5-hour ENERGY® shots (two bottles per day spaced several hours apart), while others find they do well taking less. To learn how 5-hour ENERGY® shots work best for you, take just half a bottle to start. Wait about 10 minutes, then decide if you still need an additional boost.
Some people are sensitive to having elevated amounts of niacin (vitamin B-3) in their bodies. This can result in an increase in blood flow near the skin or “flushing.” Should you experience a niacin flush, it will generally go away in a few minutes. To help avoid a possible reaction, take half a bottle and save the rest for later.
