I have a major problem in my day to day life with energy crashes. Even before drinking coffee like a mad woman just to stay awake, I always have had problems in this area. As a kid, I would come home from school and sleep until the next morning. I won't even know that I am tired until I am waking up from dozing off. On the computer, watching TV, sitting by the stove waiting for the water to boil, reading... it's even happened in the car! If I am not physically moving, I will probably fall asleep. I will just crash out of nowhere.
Below is me pretty much every day, wide awake enjoying coffee one minute, passing out the next. Not cool, my friends, not cool.
Coffee has helped some, but sometimes my energy will plummet regardless. A few times I had so much coffee just to keep me awake that I could feel my heart race. Scary! Especially since I have heart issues to begin with. It really comes from absolutely nowhere, even if I feel fully awake I can suddenly find myself waking up from a sudden crash. Now I keep caffeine pills in the van in case I need them while I am out.
I've wondered for a while now if there was anything that I could do to keep it from happening. I've been told that Narcolepsy is genetic and runs in my family. While I really hope that I don't have narcolepsy, I do need to figure out a way to stay awake for myself and for my kids. That's why when I saw the chance to try GungHo Energy Shots, I thought it would be a good fit. It promises a healthy boost of energy without jitters or a crash.
According to it's website, GungHo is different than most energy drinks or shots because it targets multiple neurotransmitters instead of just the one that most products target. It promises a smooth boost in energy followed by a gradual fall, no plummeting.
So how did I like it? The first day I tried it, I honestly forgot that I had even taken it. I didn't notice a huge difference in focus, but I do recall that I didn't crash at all that day. It was very refreshing to be able to stay awake all day. The second time I took it I wanted to really test it, so I stopped drinking coffee for 2 days prior. And that day I also had no crashes. I was able to stay awake and I felt good about the day in general. It was wonderful. I didn't feel like I was on high doses of caffeine or anything, I just felt awake. I did feel like I could focus better and get things done more efficiently.
The only thing that I will say as far as a con is that the taste is not great. You can tell that they tried to make it taste good, but it just doesn't. But then, that's why it's an energy shot and not a drink. Chug it fast and you will be fine :)
