This stuff is awesome!
I work graveyard and since I am a mom and the wife of a disabled Combat Veteran my days never were long enough.
I would not have the time to get everything done cause I'd be too tired after work.
I work from 10 pm to 7 am, I take 2 capsules at around 4 am when I start getting tired and slow. Within half an hour I'm back to wide awake and super productive!
WITHOUT any side effects!!
No jitters, no racing heart, no crash later.
I have tried several brands of energy drinks and shots and it didn't do anything but give me side effects.
Motivation is the solution!!
As stated I will take them at 4 am , by 4.30 am I'm ready for the morning rush at work, by the time I get off work I can easily keep going til at least 1 pm.
Yesterday I had a 22 hour day without ANY problems!!
Highly highly recommended supplement!!!!!

This is a really good product for what I need
This is a really good product for what I need. Basically, I wanted to reduce the number of diet sodas I was drinking every day but wanted to maintain the amount of caffeine I was consuming. Caffeinated water seemed like a good option, but bottled water is wasteful. So I started looking for caffeine powder to make my own caffeinated water.
Each capsule has 200mg of caffeine in it - the equivalent of about 6 cans of Diet Mt Dew. (I was drinking about 4 cans/day prior to switching to this product.) I take the capsule apart and dump the powder into a 24oz glass of water and sip on it all morning. I did try taking the entire capsule at once, but didn't like that as much. I do keep some capsules in the car, though, in case I'm ever driving and get drowsy.
I'm pretty happy with the product so far. The perfect product (for me) would eliminate the capsules and just have the powder in loose form. That would let me further customize the amount of caffeine I'm consuming. (Most likely, I'd take a slightly smaller dose.) And it seems a little wasteful to order something in capsule form when I'm not using it that way. On the other hand - it's pre-measured into 200mg doses. So I'm pretty consistent in the dose with this method.

Works well, with a caveat
(Note: I previously reviewed this product a week or two into use, and gave it three stars. I'm increasing my rating after a month of use. Also, I promise I'm not a paid review. Message me if you're not sure. I don't get any money from this company, as much as I wouldn't mind it!)
Going into using this product, I was looking for something to help self-medicate my ADD and get me through my college studies. I have a very hard time staying focused, and have always noticed an improvement from using caffeine-based drinks, but never particularly liked the after-effects. So, I was definitely interested in these Motivation supplements. Here's what I found:
* Starting off, I didn't notice the effects very much. I felt a small difference for a couple hours, but overall it was very minimal. However, starting off, I was also a heavy energy-drink user, and typically took 200-400mg of anhydrous caffeine pills per day, and looking back, that definitely impaired my ability to get a positive effect from these, due to tolerance, etc..
* Following my "detox" from energy drinks and normal caffeine pills, I was really able to see a difference these pills made. While they still didn't keep me awake very well, when taken separate from other caffeine products, they keep me on task for 5-6 hours, dependably. I generally use them, though, Mon-Fri, and take a break from them for the weekend, so I don't build up a tolerance, so if you're using them 7 days a week, your mileage may vary
* The best part of these pills: they work well to give you the positive benefits of caffeine, without many of the negative after-effects. I don't get the typical "jittery" feeling. It's great!
* I do notice I need the full dosage (2 capsules) in order to get the best effect. However, taking one in the afternoon helps as well(though not as much). Taking into account using 3 capsules/day for 5 days/week, a bottle lasts me about a month. At the original price, this can get very expensive, but at the current sale price of $9.95, it's a great deal.
So finally, here are my pros and cons:
* 2 capsule dosage gives consistent 5-6 hour effects
* Works well while using, without giving nasty after-effects of caffeine
* Great for people that don't want to be kept awake, but want an extra mental boost
* Great current price point of $9.95
* If you use other caffeine products consistently and have a high tolerance, you won't notice a lot of effect from these
* Not a good choice to keep you up at night..
* Horrible normal pricing for what you get
Overall, if it weren't for the normal price-point, I would probably give it 5 stars. If the 9.95 sale becomes its regular price, I might update my review. In the meantime, I think it earns its 4 stars well, and I'll most likely continue to use it (unless I find something cheaper - poor college student).

Knocks me out while heart races too fast like it's going to explode, and feels sick
I don't know if it is just me, but I keep knocking out from the medicine multiple of times, and my heart keeps racing way too quickly. While I am knocked out, I can feel my heart keeps beating too fast. I'm too tired to wake up but my heart is pounding very fast and hard (like it's going to explode). I don't feel focused either. Also, I feel sick from taking it. My throat and chest feel very uncomfortable and I feel like I have to throw up. I tried only 1 capsule and the effects weren't strong. I decided to take the recommended 2 pills and it's either too strong, or something is wrong with the pill. I can't tell whether or not it's my body or the medicine, but unfortunately, this medicine wasn't for me. Maybe everyone's body is different, but for me, I experienced negative effects. I really hate writing negative feedbacks, but this is my experience. I really had high hopes from the reviews but this didn't cut it. Maybe I'm just one of the thousands who are unlucky, who knows.

I have replaced coffee and other sugary caffeinated drinks because of Motivation!
Great replacement for caffeinated beverages. I take one in the morning, and it keeps me alert for hours. The L-theanine helps reduce the jittery feeling you get from other caffeine products, though I do recommend eating something especially if you take it in the morning. I will continue buying them because they work wonderfully.

These are great. They aren't magic pills, but they will give you the energy to do what you need to do. I am currently in college and take these whenever I need a boost for studying. It does take willpower to actually do what needs to be done, but these do help give you that push.

Excellent Product - Poor Pill Casing
When I first ordered these I didn't have very high expectations given the packaging, but I liked the idea green tea and ginseng added with the caffeine. When I took the pills I really didn't notice any difference, especially compared with other caffeine pills. For a while I even thought they were counterfeit, just filled with sugar or something.
That's when I decided to try one without the pill casing. Night and day difference.
Now I exclusively take these without the pill casing - simply pull the casing apart. I just mix the contents with 4-6oz of hot water and I have a strong green tea - not bad really. It seems these contain higher quality products than other caffeine pills since other pills tend to cause me stomach problems, but not these. I have not any negative side effects, but would certainly not mix these with coffee. I usually have one per day about mid morning or mid afternoon.
If Natural Energy Labs makes a change to these pills I hope they update the casing, however I am more than happy making a tea. If they do update the casing I hope they do not add things that can irritate the stomach.

This stuff is great. I'm a supplement junkie
This stuff is great. I'm a supplement junkie; always like trying new supplements.
This Motivation formula gives you a great boost of energy, but completely without any jitters whatsoever.
It makes me feel...well...motivated! I get a lot more done with this than just plain old caffeine and there's no crash whatsoever when it wears off.

This product worked great for me at least
I'm usually don't take energy drinks or energy supplants, but been feeling really tired lately so I decided to try this product. Package came really quickly, arrived at 9am so I was excited to try it even though I was on a empty stomach. I took 2 capsules (200 mg) and after 30 minutes I felt it kick in.. And it kicked in hard.. Hands were kinda shaking, and I felt my brain going into over drive.. The energy lasted from 9am to 5pm. Was fairly a clean pull. During that time I noticed my reflex time increased and more metal focus. This product worked great for me at least. I had my brother try it and he didn't notice anything. But he's a energy drinker. He usually drinks 1 or 2 energy drinks a day. From my conclusion I think that if your a strong coffee drinker or a daily energy drinker this product wouldn't work because your body is use to high caffeine levels. If your looking for a little extra energy this product would work. If your not use to caffeine it will work better

Pre-Review and Anticipating Continued Great Results
I have tried many supplements and was wondering if I could find the missing link. I have been a working full time and going to college full time for 7 years. Currently I am finishing up my 2nd graduate degree while working 2 years of 50 to 60 hours a week. I recently got sick with sinus and ear infections and a stomach virus. There is no time for illness! Unable to study after work I fell 3 weeks behind in my 8 week courses. Today is the first day I have tried this product and so far I am extremely impressed. I have energy and focus and feel confident that I can complete my coursework in record time. I'll post an update later. Thanks to the people who took the time to post reviews. They were helpful in making the decision to purchase this product.
