Rated 2 out of 5 by healthylady64 No Boost
I needed energy in my daily life at 68; taking one tablet daily was not enough; took 2 daily; no signs of energy; was on sale 2 for $x.xx; still taking 1 daily until used up; will not buy again; browsing for something better even paying more money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissPigitheDIva Great Product
This product works!! At my age I need a little extra energy and this product supplies exactly what I need. I never feel anxious or jittery like when you consume too much caffeine. I feel this product is safe and I am planning to continue with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RosanneMT REALLY works
This product works for me! I am very low on energy...due to weight issues I am sure, so this gets me over the hump and gets me going to head to work! ( my work is physical)
Great Value too as Swanson sometimes offers buy one get one, and I caught this item in that special so that I could stock up on what I use daily!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy1947 An energy staple
I have used this product for year. It gives you a good long boost without a jittery feeling. I definitely know when I don't take it in the morning

Rated 5 out of 5 by truthteller works better than coffee
It really is aptly named it does give a boost of energy without making one jittery and lasts without a sudden let down I keep a bottle in my purse so when a coffee break is not available one or two of these works nicely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by juliet More caffeine. Sigh.
Of course it gives you energy - it's got a lot of caffeine in it. There are dozens of caffeinated energy supplements out there. I had hoped Swanson would provide one that's caffeine free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nasian51 Seems to be working
Have been taking 1 a day for a couple of weeks and although not a "miracle" cure for lack of energy, I have noticed that I do not seem quite as tired in the afternoons. Not nearly as many "yawns" while trying to make it through the afternoon at work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bkc55 Surprising!
Frankly, i wasn't expecting to see any real results to help with my fatigue, but about a month into taking the time-released energy boost once a day in the morning, I noticed that I wasn't as tired by the end of the day and I hadn't been taking my usual mandatory naps in the afternoon. What a pleasant surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paradigm Definitely worth it!
This product is absolutely effective and I will continue to purchase it, not only is it a healthier and better way to start your day as opposed to coffee, I am not a fan of coffee but if I was and wanted to make some lifestyle changes this would be my go-to product. I mean think about it for $7 you get 60 caps which could pretty much last you about two months, in return its going to save you a TON of money if you replace coffee, especially those who order it to go from their local shop or starbucks.
I am also actively working out so this also is a great "pre-workout" and I am avoiding products that contain tons of additives and other artificial ingredients that in the long run will affect your health, especially with pre work outs which are usually thermogenics and include some dangerous ingredients, I feel safe with Swanson's timed release energy boost and it is effective!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Xena2002 No effect - tastes horrible
I tried this supplement for over 2 weeks and never felt any different at all. The taste is awful so that certainly didn't motivate me to continue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by opchick finally able to get through a normal work day...
I'm one of those people that do great until lunch time. I eat a healthy lunch but my energy is completely gone by 2:00 PM. I started taking one of these around lunch time about 9 months ago. WOW, no more sleepiness after lunch, no jitters and absolutely no crash. I go to bed around 11:00 and have not had any problems sleeping. I've told so many people about this product, I cannot imagine going without it now. I only take 1 pill daily and have not had any need to increase the amount. It works the same way, every day. Fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tinamm68 No crash- great energy
My husband and I have always been on the look out for a great energy source that is natural and safe. This product does just that! You don't feel a super energy, it just takes away the droopy eyes and that feeling of wanting to just lay down. There is no crash and actually the energy it provides is so subtle that you don't notice it till you've made it through the day and look back and say, wow, that was a really productive day when I thought I would just lay around all day! I recommend this to all my friends who are looking for the same thing we were. Just be sure to take it with a meal like the directions suggest...it could cause upset belly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by COBoy Does What Is Claimed
With four sources of caffeine, one expects this supplement to be a source of energy. Perhaps it is the two types of Ginseng that potentiate and sustain the energy effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spiritwolf My Favorite Product
Ok, I admit it - I have several favorite Swanson products. Having said that, this supplement is one I will not go without. I have always had a ten o'clock slump which was problematic at work. Out of desperation I tried this. By the third day, not only had my slump disappeared but I felt more energy during the entire day.. I take it every morning with all my other herbs. I also had my son try this a few months back because he was feeling so sluggish. Now he no longer consumes energy drinks - which makes his Mom very happy. He also takes it after breakfast every morning and has energy to work and finish his college homework too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4EVERyoung Swanson's Timed-Release Energy Boost
Nice Timed-Release energy boost. Nice little mix of herbs that are non additive. There's no 'bouncing off the walls' jolt AND there's no crash. Both of which you normally get from most energy drinks and bars. It's steady for a few hours. I use one in the morning and that's it. There have been a few times that I took a second one in the afternoon, but that's rear. This is a little pricey, but you can usually get it on BOGO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4EVERyoung Swanson Timed-Release Energy Boost
After taking this for some time, I can honestly say that it really does work. It's not like taking an energy drink (which hits the blood stream and burns off in a hour or so), this is a slow release and it is noticeable, especially if I forget to take it. One in the morning keeps me going for a few hours without bouncing off the walls and it's not addictive. It is a little pricey, but you can usually get it BOGO and stock up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RogerOne Timed-Release energy
This actually helps pick me up. I was drinking a can of cafine pop in the mid morning as a pickup but this Cap does all the same in "picking me up" without the cafine problems. It is really good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by num1rn Not sure what the problem was
I am hesitant to write this negative review because I have such great success with most Swanson products. For me this didn't do it. I did not detect an energy boost either stronger or longer. May be dose related. I will just try another product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kutems Good Discovery
I was looking for something to give me good energy and I found this while shopping Swanson for supplements. It works and does not make my heart beat fast. It's just right. I gave it my brother and he likes it. He wants me to give him some more for he uses it when he want to have a good energy and do some project. The supplements helps me at work and accomplish a goodly amount of work.

It really helps get me through the day when I have not had enough sleep. It doesn't keep me awake at night like coffee can.
