About GO Caffeine Shot
Developed by working closely with top-level athletes and teams, the Caffeine Shot meets the needs of cyclists, runners, triathletes and players of team sports, such as football. Formulated by SiS's scientists, the Caffeine Shot's comprehensive formulation uses only the best ingredients. It's ultra-convenient format makes it easy to take before going to the gym, at races, or during half time.
The Caffeine Shot is the ideal choice for professional and recreational athletes alike, especially when added focus is needed for training or competition.
SiS's advanced Caffeine Shot provides just the right amount of caffeine - enough to improve endurance and alertness, but without giving you the unpleasant, jittery sensation that some products do. The 150mg caffeine is sufficient to improve specific aspects of mental and physical performance while Citrulline Malate is increasingly requested by top-level athletes.
Magnesium is included to help maintain normal muscle and nerve function and the addition of vitamins B6, B9 and B12 help reduce tiredness and fatigue. This is exactly what's needed for concentration and focus, which is particularly important when you are pushing to the limit.
SiS's advanced Caffeine shot will help you get the most from every training session and perform at your best in competition. It can take 30-60 minutes after consumption for caffeine levels to peak in the blood, so if you are doing a short duration event (less than 60 minutes) you should take it before you start.
SiS GO Caffeine shot is ideal to help you prepare for a workout or tough match. If you are doing a much longer event, such as a marathon, 100 mile sportive, or half-ironman triathlon or longer, use SiS GO Caffeine shot in the last two hours when your fatigue level is likely to catch up with you.

For example Suzuki and co-workers gave 2.4g of L-citrulline (equivalent to 4.3g of Citrulline Malate) to cyclists and found that during a time trial speed and power were significantly increased. In addition, feelings of muscle fatigue and concentration were improved after exercise.
Brilliant - recently did 120mile ride had 1 before ride, for first 30miles kept thinking this is too easy and 1 at 75miles kept me alert and kept me going to the end instead of flagging I was still managing to push on.

Mr Richard Smith
Really works one for alert two for power
Great flavour, good energy burst when doing sport. Does what it says on the tin.
Great product, good taste and a much needed boost...
Tasty product that gets me up for training on those days when motivation is a little below 100%!! It also seems to increase my drive - even on 'going' days:-).
Used these a few times at closing stages of both half marathons and half distance triathlons definitely notice a boost in energy.
