A lot of it really depends on the amount of caffeine in the drink. If you read my comments below, you’ll see how much caffeine it takes to increase your cortisol by 30%. You have to remember that supplement companies, in general, don’t care about your health or even your performance. What they care about is that you “feel” something when using their product and therefore you “believe” it’s doing some good so that you come back and buy their product again and again. That’s not to say that caffeine doesn’t have performance benefits because the literature is very clear that it does, but it’s a double-edged sword. So you have to weigh the pros and the cons with it and decide for yourself if it’s worth it based on your own individual performance and body transformation goals.
As with all supplementation, consult your physician first (especially if you have a medical condition). Do not use if you are pregnant/lactating or under the age of 18. Remember that an adequate state of hydration must be maintained when using this product. Have at least 8-12 large glasses of water per day. Taking more than the recommended dose will not improve results and may cause adverse reactions. For best results an appropriate muscle gain eating plan and training programme should be followed. High intakes of free-form amino acids may cause gastric discomfort in sensitive individuals - if this prolongs, reduce dosage or discontinue. Do not exceed recommended daily intake. Nutritional supplements should not replace a varied diet. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
Wasting can be caused by an extremely low energy intake (., caused by famine ), nutrient losses due to infection , or a combination of low intake and high loss. Infections and conditions associated with wasting include tuberculosis , chronic diarrhea , AIDS , and superior mesenteric artery syndrome . The mechanism may involve cachectin – also called tumor necrosis factor, a macrophage -secreted cytokine . Caretakers and health providers can sometimes contribute to wasting if the patient is placed on an improper diet. Voluntary weight loss and eating disorders are excluded as causes of wasting.
