Absolutely love these. So cheap and they come in the perfect dose. I have dropped my preworkout and now just take this. Let's face it, your preworkout works well because it's loaded with caffeine. Unfortunately all the other stuff that's thrown in often upsets my stomach, especially when taken on an empty stomach. I take these on an empty stomach all the time with no issues. I used to drink coffee every single morning for a boost but now I can take one of these and get the same effect.
One fun tip for people who have issues getting up the morning: set your alarm for 45 minutes to an hour before you have to wake up. When that goes off take one of these and go back to sleep. By the time you have to wake up that caffeine should be in full effect and I have a MUCH easier time getting out of bed that way.
So i used to practically live off of Herbalife liftoff drinks to get through my work day. Plus I have chronic migraines & was on medication that contained caffeine to help prevent them, so caffeine is a huge need for me. And I work sooooo early morning. I get up at 4am & work sometimes 16hours, since I never get enough sleep I'm really needing some help during the day. I'm still on my first bottle & about to reorder. I take 1/2 in the morning when I wake up & 1/4 about mid day. I like that these are very easy to cut, since I never take a whole one at one time. This definitely gives you that boost you need without making you shaking & jumping off the walls. Helps me to of course stay awake & helps me focus. Plus I don't notice a huge crash when it wears out, but for me I notice it wearing off after about 6 hrs. Again that's just me with taking 1/2 in the morning, everyone is different. I definitely do recommend these!
Quit coffee because of heart burn. I do miss coffee, especially in the winter. With these I don't get the crash that I did with coffee. You take one in the morning and you're just awake. Not bouncing off the walls, just awake. When I first started taking these I did notice that I would get a little jittery if i didn't eat anything. I've been taking these for about 2 years now. Both in the morning and as a pre workout because those real pre workout powders give me crazy heartburn to the point of nausea.
These are great! I take one every morning before the gym. I noticed that, compared to a cup of coffee, the effect had less magnitude, but lasted much longer. To counter act this, I break the pill in half and take both halves so that it kicks in faster. Still lasts a bit longer than coffee. If I need an extra kick in the afternoon I'll pop another half tablet. Cheap and much more effective for coffee!
These are great. I use them pre-workout to help me get through longer workouts. I usually workout for around 2 hours, sometimes with insufficient sleep so these help give me an extra edge to push through. I can tolerate black coffee but I prefer creamer, which counteracts my weight loss goals. This is the solution I've found to help me get my caffeine calorie free. I have a pill cutter, so I usually will cut these depending on how much caffeine I think I'll need - how long I will be working out, or whether I'm just using it to replace a morning cup of coffee.
I am a bit of an expert on caffeine pills, having taken them daily for at least a decade. I've tried many brands and have had many experiences. These are definitely the worst (useless) caffeine pills I have ever tried. With any OTC grocery-store obtained caffeine pills, the effect is usually the same. After 20-30 mins, there is a little bit of heartburn/stomach upset followed by the energy effect of the caffeine.
With these ProLab tablets, I didn't feel any of that. Especially not the energy. It wasn't just one time either, I've been taking these for several weeks but I'd be constantly falling asleep if I didn't also drink a cup of coffee with each one. I always take them on an empty stomach too.
These tablets seem to be coated with Calcium, which is probably why I don't feel any heartburn or upset stomach. But I swear, I could take a handful of these and not feel much at all. Certainly not any of the caffeine-based energy I'm used to. Would not recommend to anyone.
These are pretty much exactly what I've been looking for. I can't stand the taste of coffee or energy drinks and I gave up soda about 2 years ago so I needed something else to help kick start my mornings. I wake up each morning and take two right away (which is about 4 cups of coffee) and there really isn't a crash afterwards because by the time they wear off my body has finally just woken up and I don't even really notice. I originally bought these for when I have to stay up late for work or what not and need to be at least half awake and they do jut that. The only concern is that you should probably take them after some sort of meal or at least snack, if you take them on an empty stomach you'll feel kinda sick afterwards which is no good. But aside from that they work great. 10/10 would buy again
