    I hear they are bad when mixed with Alcohol tho??
    too many vodka and redbull's have been causing peep's damage in the long run.

    i love my Vodka and Redbull (of course in moderation tho)

    Careful FJ - nearly 1g of caffeine is a pretty large dose mate!

    I take it about an hour before training - iirc caffeine levels peak ~60-90 minutes after ingestion.

    Really 60-90mins? Intresting, Cheers

    Just to let you know a certain supermarket chain (not sure if you can mention names on here, but there colour is red and blue) has it's own brand caffeine drink at half price 45p for a litre 30mg/100ml.

    Caffeine is caffeine right? this seems cheap to me and does not taste too bad either.

    Interesting to know about the absorption times though, I did not know that.

    Oh and no I don't work for them !
