 Biotest's Spike Shooter

Description

Biotest's Spike Shooter is powered by an energizing blend of caffeine, vitamin B12, tyrosine and yohimbe. This unique blend of nutrients synergistically boosts mental and physical energy levels. Caffeine is a well-known performance accelerant that has been shown to have powerful stimulant effects. Research suggests that caffeine can improve alertness and performance, as well as support energy and increase endurance.

Spike Shooter features vitamin B12, a well-known energy nutrient that is used to support all body functions that require high levels of energy. Vitamin B12 or cobalamin, is required for the production and growth of all the cells in our body. Vitamin B12 is mainly found in animal foods including meat, poultry, fish and dairy products. It's not found in any significant amounts in plant foods, which can cause a vitamin B12 deficiency in vegan diets (a vegetarian diet that also avoids dairy and eggs). In addition to supporting energy levels, vitamin B12 helps control homocysteine blood levels. Homocysteine is a toxic metabolite can damage blood vessels and increases the risk for various chronic illnesses, including heart disease, depression and Alzheimer's disease.

Tyrosine is an amino acid (protein building block) and precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine is released in the brain and plays an essential role in mental alertness. Tyrosine supplementation can build dopamine levels in the brain and promote energy, enhance alertness and increase feelings of well being. Athletes may benefit from tyrosine supplementation since it can help offset fatigue and stress associated with intense training.

Spike Shooter also contains yohimbe, a botanical extracted from the bark of a West African evergreen. Traditionally used as an aphrodisiac in Africa, yohimbe is a vasodilator that increases blood flow to the extremities. Research suggests that yohimbe also increases the neurotransmitter dopamine, has antioxidant effects, and stimulates lipolysis (fat burning).


Pros

Biotest's Spike Shooter is a high speed energy drink that is delivered with no calories, no carbs and no sugar. Spike Shooter is a lightly carbonated, concentrated liquid packed into an 8 ounce shot.

Spike Shooter's nutrients have numerous benefits including:

  • Potent energy booster
  • Mental and physical performance accelerant
  • Delays fatigue onset
  • Increases mental alertness

Cons

Speed Shot contains 300 mg of total caffeine from all sources. High caffeine drinks have been found to increase heart rate and blood pressure. Caffeine and yohimbe may cause insomnia, trembling, anxiety, and urinary frequency. Individuals that are sensitive to caffeine's stimulant effects should avoid taking Spike Shooter.

If you regularly consume coffee and caffeinated drinks, Spike Shooter should be taken in place of your coffee, not in addition to your coffee. This may be a problem if you don't want to give up your caffeinated drinks.

Side effects reported with vitamin B12 include mild diarrhea, anxiety, heart palpitations, insomnia, breathing problems, chest pain, skin rash and allergic reactions to B12 injections.

It has not been determined if long-term use of tyrosine in large amounts (more than 1,000 mg per day) is safe. Long-term use of tyrosine should be monitored by a health care professional.
