Spike and the Lay-Person

I did a search but couldn’t find what I was looking for…

I seem to remember there being a much more detailed article than what is currently available for Spike (and Spike Shooters); going a lot more in-depth about what Spike is comprised of, and why it is better than other stimulants [and energy drinks] to be found on today’s market.

Where did these articles go? And where would I direct a person who does not lead a “strength/athletic” lifestyle, but who is intensely interested in this “OMG-What-the-Hell-is-this-Stuff -that-SO-Freakin’-Kicks-Red Bull’s-Watery-Ass?!?!?!?!?!” (this was after letting her try half a can), but is worried that they might be ingesting an illegal substance?

Where do the lay-people learn about Spike?

They haven’t said what exactly is in Spike to the best of my knowledge.

I know for a fact that I took Spike prior to my last meet (powerlifting) and I was drug tested, results came back negative for anything illegal.

The shooter has 300 mg of caffeine… IIRC.

All the ingredients are printed on side side of every can.

Perhaps a crowbar to remove my foot from my mouth?

Look, it is impossible to get some solid rumors started with you all interjecting reality into the situation constantly!

There were 2 articles printed up. The one that is currently the “more info” article under the product and then one TC wrote shortly after called “I am Spiked” which tells a little more about the ingredients.

Really?

Do you care to tell us what is in the “Spike Shooter formula”?

Thanks, Lonnie. I’d forgotten about that one. I missed it last night.

Again,

Try looking on the side of the can.

N-acetyl-L-tyrosine
Caffeine anhydrous
Yohimbine HCl

I think orion wants to know how much N-acetyl-L-tyrosine & yohimbine is in each dose of the Spike Shooter.

Na, I just thought that “look at the side of the can” was just a tad misleading.

The Spike Shooter Formula contains N-acetyl-L-tyrosine, Caffeine anhydrous, and Yohimbine HCL.

This is printed on the can.

Note:

Wasn’t my intention to stir up a cloud of controversy.

Just Sayin’…
