Energy Boost ... or SCAM

We know vitamins and minerals do not give us energy... And yet these "certified athletic trainers" believe in a product called, Effex, which they used at an athletic convention. Effex has supposedly been shown to improve energy instantly (anecdotally).

The ingredients of this product, according to the spokesperson, are the following:

"Only good stuff. Nothing but vitamins and minerals."

Check out the "ingredients," and see if you agree. Last I heard, caffeine is neither a vitamin nor a mineral, so they are marketing this product very unethically.

What's most interesting is that they do not list the amounts of vitamins and minerals in their product, only the form. Another point to note is even though caffeine has been shown to boost performance; too much is not a good thing. The latter study specifically mentions the word "moderation" to reap a benefit. Most likely, Effex-users could become abusers if they respond well to the spray, meaning, moderation might not occur.
