Choose From Different 5-Hour Energy Drinks
All of the brand's energy drinks contain no sugar and no herbal stimulants. The energy shots use caffeine as the primary stimulant and include other ingredients that provide additional nutritional support and boost pathways in the nervous system that contribute to wakefulness. You can replace your morning coffee with these energy drinks or drink them in the afternoon for a little pick-me-up. They are also ideal as pre-workout drinks to keep you motivated at the gym or while running.

The brand offers three different versions of its energy drink formula. The regular strength drinks contain about the same amount of caffeine as a regular cup of coffee. The extra strength variants have a higher caffeine content while the decaf shots contain 6mg of caffeine per bottle. This is half of the amount of caffeine in a regular cup of decaffeinated coffee. To ensure that its energy shots taste great, the brand offers them in a variety of fruit flavors.

Improve Your Workouts With Protein-Rich 5-Hour Energy Drinks
You can make your workout routine more effective and less tiring with one of the brand's protein shots. These come in regular and extra-strength formulas and are available in four flavors. In addition to the caffeine, amino acids, and vitamins in the regular energy drinks, these shots also contain 21g of whey isolate and vegetable proteins. Although it comes from milk, whey protein isolate is an excellent protein source that is suitable for lactose-intolerant individuals.
