Stimulants increase heart rate and blood pressure. They also cause the person taking the supplement to feel a sudden boost of energy. This boost often comes with a crash after the energy rush, which leaves only two options – feel tired or take more stimulants. Stimulants should not be taken within 12 hours of bedtime because it takes 12 hours for caffeine to leave the body. The total caffeine impact of Bally Total Fitness Energy is 220 mg.
Pills sold over the counter to keep people awake contain only 200 mg of caffeine. This supplement contains more than that.
