Epic Nutrition Intense NRG Concentrate Review by Steven Sidorski
Hi there this is Steven Sidorski and it is nice to finally be doing reviews for Matt Canning once again!
The product I am reviewing today is called Intense NRG Energy Shot. The type of shot I am reviewing is known as Red Energy and each single dose / bottle is 2 ounces or 60ml but if taken all at once it promises to provide up to eight full hours of NRG. After a bit of research, it appears as though NRG is a type of fat-burner. More information can be found on http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/epic/nrg.html or check the links on this page.
As for the taste this particular one resembles cherry but I have never had a cherry taste like this. It is neither too sour nor too sweet. The first thing I noticed when I tried it is that it made me really hungry. The second thing I noticed is that I naturally take smaller sips than I would with other drinks. I am not sure as to why.
On the NRG bottle it promises the following effects: wakefulness, alertness and cognitive performance. As you may already know, these effects are quite similar to those of most energy drinks such as Red Bull or Monster. Additional effects stated on the bottle are endurance and enhancement of motor performance. After a bit of research, motor performance relates to motor skills, which by dictionary.com refers to "the ability to perform complex muscle-and-nerve acts that produce movement; fine motor skills are small movements like writing and tying shoes, gross motor skills are large movements like walking and kicking". In a nutshell, it would seem that activities such as running, weight-lifting, and other forms of cross-training would be included in the definition of motor performance.
The first thing Matt noticed before he gave me this product to help review for him was that it did not state anywhere on the bottle how much caffeine it contains. However, some of the benefits are that NRG Energy Shot provides NRG for hours, it has zero calories and is sugar free.
If you look at the list of ingredients, you will notice that this supplement has a lot of B-Vitamins which are also present in other supplements such as 5-Hour Energy Shot and similar mini-drinks. In my opinion, these smaller energy drinks are superior in that they are less filling and have a lot less sugar. In addition, there is generally less of a crash effect which I can say is true because of my experience with both smaller and larger energy drinks. If you are thinking about buying the larger ones due to its ability to quench thirst, I would probably think against it and drink water instead or Gatorade or G2 which is even better overall!
My experience with this product has two parts to it: last night and today while I am writing this review. Last night I tried about a third of the bottle to see if it would keep me up as I was tired before I had it. It did not keep me awake any longer which is probably why it explicitly states on the NRG bottle that it is not intended to be a substitute for sleep. However, when I finished the bottle just now, I definitely noticed a change in my wakefulness as well as alertness and a generally improved sense of well-being.
