Questions and Answers
Your bottles say E6 Energy Shots contain 235mg of caffeine. Will that much caffeine give me the jitters?
The Beverage Industry’s standard average of caffeine content for an 8 oz. cup of coffee is 80mg. So, E6 has a little over twice that or two cups of coffee worth. However, a 12 oz. “Tall” cup of the leading green-labeled premium coffee contains 260mg, according to that company’s website.
That means E6 Energy shots actually contain a little less caffeine than the smallest cup of one of the most popular coffees in the world. That’s just enough – when combined with our other B-vitamins and nutrients – to give you that extra energy boost you’re looking for, without getting the jitters.
Since every person’s body chemistry is a little different, if you have sensitivity to caffeine, we recommend only using a half-bottle the first time you try E6 Energy.
When is the best time to take E6 Energy?
You can use E6 Energy anytime a boost of energy or increased focus is needed. (Use only as directed.)
How often should I use E6 Energy?
We recommend you do not exceed more than one bottle every six hours.
Who should not take E6 Energy Shots?
Women who are pregnant or nursing; children under 12 years of age; or people diagnosed with phenylketonuria (PKU).
I felt very warm and turned red and itchy when I tried E6 Energy! What happened?
You have experienced what’s known as a “niacin flush.” Some people are sensitive to elevated amounts of Niacin (Vitamin B3). The warm, red sensation stems from the niacin in E6 increasing blood flow near the skin.
I’m sure you noticed it going away in a few minutes, and it may not happen again, as E6 contains Niacinamide, a form of Niacin that causes little or no “niacin flush.” To avoid a niacin flush, altogether, try drinking only half a bottle, and save the rest for later.
Have E6 Energy Shots been approved by the FDA?
The FDA categorizes products like E6 Energy Shots and as “dietary supplements.” Government rules for supplements differ from those established for foods or synthetic medicines.
All dietary supplements must comply with DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act) regulations for labeling, manufacturing practices, and use ingredients categorized as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). The FDA does not test and approve dietary supplements, as they do with medicines, because their ingredients are already established as safe.
