    energy mints - do they work?

    "What sets Warp Energy Mints apart is that each mint has a unique formulation of ginseng and guarana, for a natural energy rush - and now includes green tea extract. Green tea has been known to have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, thus offering a new quality to the mints. Five Warp Green-T Energy Mints are equivalent to one cup of brewed green tea. "

    Ingredients:
    Sugar, Dextrose, Calcium Stearate, Natural Flavors, Guarana, Siberian Ginseng, Panax Ginseng


    is 1 cup of green tea enough for a kick? dextrose is there

    As a certified mint expert, no, I did not notice any increase in energy after taking them. I am, in general, fairly resistant to stimulants though.

    For energy, I always loved Penguin mints. 3 mints = 1 soda (or cup of coffee, I forget). Some late nights I would throw down an entire container over the course of 6 hours (75 mints total). Havent done that in a while. My favorite coffee shop stopped carrying them about a year ago.

    I doubt they are going to do much given the ingredients. Green tea is a good source of anti-oxidants and I guess one cup is better than nothing, but if you can purchase green tea extract if you wanted which would work better for as far as anti-oxidants are concerned.

    You might get a little boost from the guarana (caffeine), but this would depend on the amount contained in each mint.

    Here is a review on Panax Ginseng that might be of interesthttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...&dopt=Abstract
