Don't buy "Extreme Shock" energy drinks

Seriously, they suck. I guess it can be classified as one of those "thermogenic" pre-workout supplements. I bought one today at the Vitamin Shoppe and drank it on my way home. 15 minutes later I was overcome by a prickly, itchy sensation like ants crawling all over me. My face began itching uncontrollably and it really sucked. The back of my neck began to burn and my hands started sweating.

When I got home I read the label, to find it had 40mg of niacin! That's 200% packed into one little juice bottle! Horrible, and not something I would call a very "motivating" pre-workout drink.

I also bought my first tub of N.O. Xplode. I hope that doesn't suck, I have 40 servings of it now.:ohcrap:

take an aspirin if you want to avoid the effects of niacin... have tkaen it before and actually like that feeling

An aspirin, huh? Interesting. The effect wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the itch that came with it. Is niacin actually considered a useful energy supplement?

Thanks for the heads up on this drink! Wow...sounds like it was pretty uncomfortable for you. That's a pretty good shot of niacin in one taking!

caffeine is even cheaper and would probably give you more bang than a 5 hour energy I dont think they have 200mg in those, do they?
