First Impression: When communication started about this review, I was given some info on the company and was very impressed. They get their guranana from Brazil and give 10% of the profits go to The Atlantic Rainforest Institute.
This is NOT an energy drink. It is an energy shot.
Background Information: I generally try to stay away from energy drinks/shots. I don’t like consuming that much sugar and I really don’t know the long term effects of many of the ingredients. I eat as much organic, non-GMO, non-processed food as possible. If this were the typical energy drink, I would have passed on doing a review.
The 2 samples used were provided by Sudden Rush Guarana. The samples were used on two separate occasions.
The card that came with the sample said to take 10 minutes before physical activity. It can be taken straight or it mixed with water/drink. I took it straight. It has a very strong coffee-type of taste to it. Not the best taste, but I don’t drink coffee.
The first sample was used before a very challenging run. It was only an 11 mile run, but it was during the day, in August, and I live in Las Vegas, NV. The temperature was 105-110° (first problem). I took the shot and started running 20 minutes later (I got sidetracked). I definitely felt the shot about 5 minutes before I left. I had not eaten much for breakfast (second problem), but had consumed about a liter of water. It ended up being one of the toughest runs I had done in a while. The sun took just about everything out of me. I had to stop a few times (it’s not good when you get goosebumps). So, I can say that I did notice the shot, but I was also asking a whole lot from it on this day. I was completely drained.
After the first sample, I decided that I should try it on a much easier day so that I can feel the effects more. I took it before doing some work around the house, food shopping, and going to work. This reaction was much more effective than the first. I did feel more energized during the day. Not so much that I felt stronger, just more alert. Honestly, it is hard to say how long it lasts for. I got a solid 3 hours out of it, but there is no crash, so it’s difficult to say when it stops working. About 10 hours after taking the second shot, I went for a 5 mile run and circuit workout. I felt great! I don’t know or expect that it was still the Guarana, because it states that it lasts for 4-6 hours, but felt the need to include it.
Feedback: I am not sure what the price of shots are. I am going to take a shot in the dark and say that I would expect to see them sell for around $2.50-$4 each. If you rely on energy supplements, or would like an extra boost every now and then, try Sudden Rush Guarana. I would recommend Sudden Rush over the sugar energy drinks any day.
