All you need is one piece of gum. The directions say to chew one piece for 5 minutes. If you do not feel any energy within 15 minutes you can chew another piece. I never have had to chew 2 pieces. One does an amazing job! I usually feel it's effects within a couple minutes of chewing. As for the taste... it's not bad at all! there are three flavors. Spearmint, Artic Mint and Cinnamon. Spearmint is what I chew daily. I'd have to say out of all three flavors (they were awesome enough to send me a BUNCH of Artic Mint and Cinnamon to try since the only one I've had is spearmint) the Spearmint is the one that has a kind of harsh aftertaste. It's definitely not a gum you can throw in your mouth and chew all day. After about 15 minutes you can get rid of the gum and enjoy your day.
The kick it has is pretty incredible. After the gum is broken apart in my mouth, which is when I start to feel it, you definitely know you have a boost. Your heart does NOT pound out of your chest, you do NOT get a weak stomach or headache. It delivers enough caffeine for you to jump up outta your seat and get sh*t done! Its lasting effect? I'm not 100% sure because you do NOT crash, or feel like you lost a ton of energy. It just slowly fades off somewhere I think :)
I will never be a single day without this gum. It has been my life saver during my last couple hours of work at night and on my days off it has given me the energy and motivation to accomplish everything I need to.
I highly suggest you go and give this a try if you are in need of some energy. Being a Mom, working full time, or just on a lazy day that you should be getting stuff done. I now purchase mine straight from the company, as their customer service is above and beyond any I have ever dealt with. I will leave you the link as well as the product information below :)
Have an amazing day!!!
