I have a friend that swears by Herbalife products. I tried the shakes several years ago, and could not get into them, but my friend kept insisting that I try their energy supplements. So, I started using the N-R-G pills last year.
I really liked them at first. I started taking them before long runs. It worked like a gel, and gave me a boost of energy. But, it seemed to wear off pretty quickly. I also used them during the day when I needed a pick me up in the afternoon, or when I was having a hard time waking up in the mornings. When I first started them, I could tell a little bit of a difference, but after taking them for awhile, they just didn’t work at all. I also noticed that if I am tired, they are absolutely no help! My friend said she had the same problem, and would be taking up to 4 of them a day and they still weren’t working.
She has now gotten me to try out the Lift-Off energy tablets. These dissolve in water, and so far they are working much better than the N-R-G pills did. I can tell a huge difference after I take one.
I put them in a bottle of water, and I can tell a difference before I even finish drinking it. It does the same thing to me that an energy drink does, but it’s a lot better for me. I have tons of energy when I take one, and it lasts for several hours. The first time I tried one, I drank it around 10 in the morning. I still felt energized at 4 that afternoon. It lasted that long. I was skeptical about it lasting that long, so I paid attention to the next one. It did the same thing!
I did notice that on a day when I was really tired, it helped, but it wasn’t a huge difference. I have tried the grapefruit flavor and the pomegranate flavor. I did not like the grapefruit at all, it kind of had a “medicine” taste to it. The pomegranate is sweeter, but does have a little bit of an after taste that I had to get used to.
I would recommend the Lift Offs because they do work. The N-R-G pills would be good if you just need a small boost, but they don’t last long enough to make a big difference.
Do you have any suggestions for energy?
