Composition 5-Energy is composed of Niacin, Vitamin B6(as pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 (as Cyanoccobalamin), and Sodium. The Energy Blend consists of Taurine, Glucronic acid, Malic Acid, N-Acetyl L- Tyrlosine, L-Phenylalanine, Caffeine, and Citcoline. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Niacin (Vitamin B3) Niacin is important for energy products. It plays a role in converting fats, proteins, carbohydrates and starches into energy that can be used. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxamine) Vitamin B6 plays a key role in the making of amino acids, and the building blocks of protein. It is used in the creation of DNA. It’s involved in over 100 crucial chemical reactions in our bodies. It helps form nearly all new cells in our bodies. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Folic Acid (Vitamin B9, Folate) Folic Acid helps produce and maintain new cells in our bodies. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) Vitamin B12 is involved in a variety of important functions including the production of amino acids and the processing of carbohydrates into energy. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Sodium http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp Na and element number 11. Sodium are highly water- soluble, and their sodium has been leached by the action of water so that chloride and sodium are the most common dissolved elements by weight in the Earth's bodies of oceanic water.
Taurine Taurine is A naturally occurring chemical substance present in meat, fish and dairy products. Adult humans have high concentrations of Taurine in white blood cells, skeletal muscles, the heart and central nervous system. It plays a role in digestion, and is used to process potassium, calcium and sodium in the body, as well as maintain the integrity of cell membranes. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Citicoline Citicoline is a water- soluble compound essential for the synthesis of phosphatidyl choline, a constituent of brain tissue. Citicoline plays a role in neurotransmission and can help support brain function. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Tyrosine An amino acid that transmits nerve impulses to the brain. It is present in meat, dairy, fish and grains. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
Phenylalanine http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that enhances alertness. It’s found in dairy products, avocados, legumes, nuts, leafy vegetables, whole grains, poultry and fish.
Malic Acid http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp The body synthesizes Malic Acid during the process of converting carbohydrates to energy. The main food source of Malic Acid are fruits, especially apples, which contain the highest concentrations.
Glucuronolactone Glucuronolactone is a natural metabolite found in the human body. It is produced by the metabolization of glucose in the liver. It has been shown to reduce sleepiness. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
How Does It Work? 5-Hour Energy is an energy shot that gives you an extra boost. It has as much caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee which wakes you up. It is filled with B-Vitamins and amino acids. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
SAFETY Do not take if you are pregnant or nursing, or under 12 years of age. If you are taking medication and/or have a medical condition, consult your doctor before use. Contains caffeine comparable to a cup of the leading premium coffee. Limit caffeine products to avoid nervousness, sleeplessness, and occasional rapid heartbeat. You may experience a Niacin Flush (hot feeling, skin redness) that lasts a few minutes. This is caused by increased blood flow near the skin. http://www.5hourenergy.com/ingredients.asp
