* I have used this product several times over the years (the original and the 2.0). It does do what it says. Every cycle with it I have incredible focus, increased strength, increased endurance, and will generally gain muscle while losing fat. So, you may wonder why I rated it a 1 and would not recommend it to others? For the same reason I don't recommend steroids. This product is very bad for your body. I am no medical doctor, but I have done my research on safe/healthy levels of caffeine and you will go way beyond them using this product. Each serving has the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee and they recommend taking up to 3 servings. 6 cups of coffee worth of caffeine in a day is dangerous and even more so when combined with creatine. You will develop a severe caffeine dependency and could do long term damage to your body. At first one serving will be fine, but your tolerance will build quickly and you will find that without 2-3 servings your workouts become nearly impossible as you lack energy. There slogan of 'once you workout with it, you won't workout without it' is entirely true... because you'll be physically addicted. It also makes you a totally annoying weirdo to be that jacked up on caffeine all the time. If you're goal in life is to look buff for the summer season and are willing to sacrifice overall health and drive away friends and family by annoying them than by all means use this product. I personally value the health of my internal organs and feel that others should also, so I have stopped using this and cannot recommend it to others.
* It's great for a post work out after you have past your breaking point to gain some energy and go about your day (a little rest and protein shake with creatine would do the same). Every-time I have used it as a pre-work out I have come close to vomiting it up and actually did it the last time I used it as a pre-work out. I left it at three stars because you can feel something inside of you wanting out after taking this.
