I've tried just about every energy drink out there.  Monster was too sweet.  Rockstar made my pee look like green antifreeze.  NOS was alright, but it seemed to make me a little jittery and when it wore off I was ready for bed.  Red Bull made me jittery and had a crash afterward.  Amp was pretty good until they changed the flavors and it doesn't work as well and tastes watery to me now.  The Army used to give us "Rip-It" in Iraq and those were pretty good, but I couldn't drink very many without having stomach pains.  I tried a 5 hour energy once and it tasted nasty and didn't really seem to have any effect on me.  I finally settled on Full Throttle.  The citrus flavored Full Throttle seems to wake me up, give me energy to be active and alert without being jittery, and I don't have a crash afterward, not to mention it tastes pretty good.

TBH, you should probably avoid energy drinks and just make sure you get enough sleep and enough regular exercise!  Exercise builds energy!

If it just uses caffeine, there WILL be a crash later, making the ad a lie.

No it doesn't make it a lie.  They claim it gives you a boost.  They make no claim what occurs after the boost wears off.

Exactly, I approve to ban all energy drinks. It is not about the ingredients, its about that it can also increase dangerously the rhythm of your heart and there is a chance of creating a stroke.

Maybe you should have initially stated that.  I, for one, have never read the bottle or taken it.

There's a honking great big picture of it in the OP, with that claim clearly stated right in the middle of the label.  It's not my fault you didn't bother to read the OP.
