Jet Alert Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


If you haven’t looked carefully at Jet Alert, now’s your chance. We took the time to create a comprehensive review, examining the side effects, ingredients, clinical studies and level of customer service. Plus we sorted through dozens of user comments from around the web. At last, we summed up all of the facts and feedback we found to give you the information you actually need.

What is Jet Alert?

To start with, Jet Alert is and energy booster. The ingredients include caffeine (200 milligrams per caplet). This product is supposed to help improve focus, enhance concentration and keep you awake. It is touted as a double strength formula, and an alternative to coffee. Furthermore, it’s claimed to be fast-acting and non-habit forming. You simply take one pill every three hours. You can find this product through common dealers such as Walmart and Amazon. It’s suitable for people ages 12 and up.

The brand that makes Jet Alert caplets is Bell Pharmaceuticals, Inc. This product has been on the market since at least 2009. There is plenty of helpful customer feedback posted on the web. Also, this formula is easy to use/take anywhere, but read on…

Side Effects – “Is It Safe?”

One concern we have is the Jet Alert side effects. According to our Research Editor, “This product can lead to unpleasant adverse reactions such as upset stomach, headache, jitteriness, anxiety, insomnia, nervousness and fast heartbeat.”

One customer stated, “Doesn’t work. Makes me feel very sick. My heart was beating fast and hand was shaking.”

But, a different user had this to say, “The first couple of times that I used them they seemed fine. At first I felt I had a lot of energy, but then they started to upset my stomach.”

“It’s okay. Doesn’t seem as potent as other caffeine supplements,” commented another.

Jet Alert Minimal Results – “Uh Oh”

Another issue is the minimal results some customers have reported. For instance, one user said, “I purchased this product because I am not a coffee drinker and until I have had time to adjust to my new hours, I needed something to keep me alert during the first half of my day. I tried the recommended dosage and there was no effect. The following day I increased the dosage and still no effect. So after a week of use, I gave up on Jet Alert.”

On the other hand, a different person revealed, “Okay results. Not the strongest I’ve ever had. Won’t be buying this again.”

Another mentioned, “It will give you some energy. Helps me focus, but not as good as coffee.”

The extensive research we’ve conducted has shown if there’s some specific part of an energy supplement or workout product that is quite bothersome (side effects, minimal results, unpleasant taste) the likelihood of long-term success is slim. This means if Jet Alert does in fact cause unwanted adverse reactions in a lot of people, this could be a serious issue.

The Science – “Is There Any?”

Well, first off, Jet Alert does contain caffeine. This is a well known stimulant and mild diuretic. It has been shown to improve focus, boost energy levels and help with workouts to some degree. However, some people do experience side effect from this ingredient. Furthermore, this formula may not be potent enough for some individuals and their needs or goals.

What Users Are Saying

"Worked great, easy to take. I use them to help my ADD and drinking coffee can be hard on my stomach. Mostly they help when I am working, when I really rely on them in my work as a transcriptionist and I need to be able to concentrate well."


The Bottom Line – Does Jet Alert Work?

So, should you spend your hard-earned cash on Jet Alert caplets? Well, we like that this energy booster supplement is easy to find online and in common stores. We also appreciate that it is easy to use anywhere. Then again, we have some doubts about this product because some users have complained of minimal to no real results. Furthermore, we’re a bit leery of the side effects that some people have reported.

If you really want to boost physical performance, increase energy and take your workouts to the next level, we recommend a product that’s supported by documented research, does not lead to any harsh adverse effects and is backed by numerous positive user comments.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is our product called Dietspotlight Burn. The supplement contains a four-ingredient blend. All clinically-tested with results often found in publications including The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Also, we’re so confident that you’ll love our supplement, that we’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

  •  gives you Energy
    sharon (Verified User)

    Do it give you energy?

    • Devon (Editor)

      Dieters may get energy from the 200mg of caffeine contained in this product. Please work up to this amount as it is a large dosage of caffeine.

  •  Just started jet alert they seem to keep my mind busy.

  • Your Name

  • Karlene

    Dose jet alert give a person cramp in feet and hands?

    • Devon (Editor)

      Hello Karlene. Some dieters report mild physical discomfort. Please take the formula to you doctor to ensure you do not experience adverse effects from this product. You might want to think about switching to a supplement clinically shown to boost energy, like Dietspotlight Burn.

  • Christina

    I love Jet Alert! I use it to counteract medications that make me drowsy. It makes me alert and helps me stay awake but not to the point that I become jittery and anxious. I can honestly say it’s not addicting like some of the others I’ve tried. If you need alertness and a low dose of energy to help be the best you can be, Jet Alert is great!

  • Lisa

    Jet Alert works GREAT, w/o the bad flavor & nausea of competing products like No-Doz. Also, the oblong 200 mg tabs are easy to break in half if desired. Wish the 100 mg tabs were available in more stores–and also that Target carried Jet Alert at all!

    • Sharpeyed Looker

      You’re so right,about.Target! They USED TO carry Jet-Alert all the time, and stopped a few years ago for no stated reason. Kmart still has it, but we should worry about the troubles now burdening Kmart’s and Sesrs’ very survival, i’m afraid. Many drugstore chains put out their own house brand of caffeine,,and i imagine don’t like goid chesp Jet-Alert competing. Until pretty recently, you could find amazingly cheap Jet-Alert thru Amazon, and Walmart’s price was only $2 for the 90 caps. A good guess is that the Bell corp.,,the makers,, put pressure on these super-discount prices. Understandable, but too bad for us!

  • Jet Alert is better than coffee.
    Donovan Tourette (Verified User)

    I love Jet Alert, but you have to use it right. Take it with some water (because if you don’t, you might feel like throwing up). Do not consume other caffeine containing products for the next 5 hours. I recommend limiting the use of caffeine containing products to 400mg every 5 hours. Jet Alert is much better than coffee because you know exactly how much caffeine is in your system and when. Also, coffee typically has sugar and stains your teeth; Jet Alert does not. Sugar rots your teeth and makes you fat. Coffee is habit forming because subconsciously we humans treat it like food when it is NOT, resulting in overconsumption and bad health. As human beings, we are trained to treat pills with discipline. The result of switching from coffee to Jet Alert is better health (if you use it as I stated).

  • Thomas

    Great product I use it daily for work 1 every morning and it gets me going

    • Montana (Editor)

      Hello Thomas! If you like Jet Alert, then we think you’ll also like Dietspotlight Burn, which contains ingredients clinically shown to boost energy levels.

  •  Works for a senior.

    I don’t like coffee and worry about side effects of soda so I have been taking two of these first thing in the morning for over two years now. I can’t say it gives me a lot of pep but on the days I do NOT take them I am dragging along. I am 77 go to the gym five days a week and ride a bike every day with a minimum of 20 miles. I have not experienced any of the side effects reviewers have mentioned.

  • Please don't take if..
    Tyler (Verified User)

    Please don’t use this product if you dont normally use caffeine. I usually take about 9 mg of caffeine every so often (like twice a month). I took Jet Alert (200 mg) because I was tired. I had the worst jitters and my stomache felt horrible. Don’t be an idiot like me and take it when you don’t usually have caffeine in your system.

  • T

    Great product if used responsibly! I only take 1 pill per day and it works great.

  • Robert

    90 pills for $3.43, it’s a no brainer! I’ve drank Red Bull ($2.50 a can), and 5hr Energy (2.12 a shot) for years, even buying them in bulk. I have full confidence on this product and have since changed to Jet.

  • Laurie

    I’ve been taking the regular dose for years since I don’t drink coffee. Just enough to start my day and probably has saved my life several times while tired and driving. Question is there is some calcium in the pills. Exactly how much calcium??

  • Your Name

    This product WORKS drove six hours out of town and I stayed woke the whole time.

  •  thumbs up" from me
    K.B (Verified User)

    I have issues with staying focused and woke long enough to get anything done when I am at work. I tried Jet-Alert on yesterday and was up the entire shift instead of drifting off. I even got my school work done. This product in my opinion is a “thumbs up” from me. I just wouldn’t advise a person take more than 1 a day if it is the double strength one.

  •  I like that it is only caffeine
    Michael (Verified User)

    Jet Alert works well. I run some of the largest trucks on Earth in all conditions and all shifts (1,120,000 lbs truck fully loaded).. Jet Alert keeps me safe and keeps my coworkers safe by keeping me alert. It is low cost. I like that it is only caffeine. I have been known to use Jet Alert before I hit the gym. Very safe when used as directed.

  • quicker affect an better
    Diana (Verified User)

    Been taking them for years Take one right before I go to work and works almost all day. I take one before I work out I never had no problems would recommend I even take when I have to travel a long drive. It’s just like drinking a cup of coffee but quicker affect an better

  •  Talking about ingredients.
    venesa (Verified User)

    Formula/Dosage of the Jet-Alert 100mg pills…Also, I’ve never heard of it being advertised as a diet supplement, but like I said before, perhaps for people who for whatever reason consume too much soda, these pills give u the caffeine without the extra side effects of her crap. When u drink 2 or more bottles of soda a day taking these pills aren’t going to give you the jitters or anything else. On the side of the bottle it specifically states to Limit use of caffeine containing products because excessive caffeine, and lists the causes. And also states that no stimulent should be substituted for normal sleep… Just wanted to point those things out.

    • June

      Thanks for explaining that venesa! Most caffeine products contain 200mg so I can see where people could get confused.

  •  Facing side effects.
    venesa (Verified User)

    I just wanted to point out something to you. I’ve been taking jet-alert for almost a year. On top of the double strength I take adderral (extended and immediate release) as well as Modafinil(Provigil), for my Narcolepsy and ADD medical conditions. My insurance won’t pay for as much of the narcolepsy medication that I need, so for me, having a pure caffeine pill (besides the ‘pill ingredients’) is a must. I have lost about 15 lbs in about a months time, but that primarily has to do with the fact that since taking this, and now having my medical stuff under control, in no longer mindlessly drinking soda all day and at work. I’ve pretty much completely stopped soda all together, which has cut out an incredibly large amount of daily sugar intake, which also caused me to gain 80 lbs in 3 yrs… During those 3 yrs I worked full time at a casino, and my daughter is now 4 1/2., I dropped down to part time to go back to school and later that year is when I started having sleep attacks, it took,almost 8 mths to be seen by a sleep dr ,and have the sleep test to diagnose it…taking jet-alert restored my awakeness and alertness (which is what it promotes one bottle), and I’m pretty positive I can say it saved my life at least a couple times. To the point I wanted to make that made me write a comment on the first place, It says DOUBLE STRENGTH on the bottle, because, initially when this came out, the dose for each pill was only 100 mg, which is now their Regular Dose bottle. The 200 mg pills are called Double Strength, because they contain Double Strength Caffeine per pill WHEN COMPARED TO (THEIR OWN ) ORIGINAL F
