Energy shots are extremely popular as people are looking to find a way to artificially boost energy. Today, I am going to compare the market leader, 5 hour energy to the newest energy shot, The Verve Energy Shot.

The 5 hour energy shot contains Vitamins ( Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Folic Acid (Vitamin B9). The Energy Blend in 5 hour Energy is Citicoline, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine, Taurine, Malic Acid, Glucuronolactone, Caffeine.

The Verve Energy Shot contains Taurine 1000 mg Guarana Seed Extract (standardized extract yielding 120 mg of caffeine) 300 mg D-Ribose 50 mg Inositol 50 mg Choline Chloride 10 mg Vitamin A (100% as beta carotene) 2500 IU 50% Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 300 mg 500% Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 1000 IU 250% Vitamin E (as d- alpha tocopheryl acetate) 60 IU 200% Thiamin (as thiamine hydrochloride) 1.5 mg 100% Riboflavin (as riboflavin U.S.P.) 1.7 mg 100% Niacin (as niacinamide) 20 mg 100% Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride) 5 mg 250% Folate (as folic acid) 800 mcg 200% Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) 15 mcg 250% Biotin (as d- Biotin) 300 mcg 100% Pantothenic Acid (as calcium d-pantothenate) 10 mg 100% Selenium (as selenium amino acid chelate) 140 mcg 200% Proprietary Wildcrafted Mangosteen, Organic Glyconutrient-Rich Aloe Vera And Organic Green Tea Blend 25.2 g Reconstituted Mangosteen Juice (Garcinia mangostana L.) (fruit), Aloe Vera Gel (leaf), Green Tea (leaf) (decaffeinated), Mangosteen Extract (pericarp) (standardized 10% xanthones) Proprietary Plant-Sourced Mineral Blend: 956 mg Carbon (Organic), Calcium, Sodium, Sulfur, Magnesium, Chloride, Bromide, Fluoride, Iodine, Potassium, Niobium, Aluminum, Iron, Phosphorus, Silica, Manganese, Boron, Strontium, Titanium, Tungsten, Copper, Zinc, Tin, Zirconium, Molybdenum, Vanadium, Chromium, Selenium, Nickel, Cobalt, Lithium, Gallium, Barium, Yttrium, Neodymium, Hafnium, Cadmium, Thorium, Antimony, Cerium, Tellurium, Beryllium, Samarium, Dysprosium, Erbium, Bismuth, Gadolinium, Cesium, Lanthanum, Praseodymium, Europium, Lutetium, Terbium, Ytterbium, Holmium, Thallium, Thulium, Tantalum, Germanium, Gold, Platinum, Rhodium, Rubidium, Ruthenium, Scandium, Silver, Indium.

When you glance at the list of what’s in the bottle of both of these, there really is no comparison. The Verve Energy Shot has all you need for your daily nutrition and hands down, 10 times the ingredients that the 5 hour energy shot has. There is no comparison.

Verve Energy shot is $3, the 5 hour energy shot is $4. Advantage Verve Energy shot. Looking at the retail price of these two products, it’s hard to imagine that the Verve is actually cheaper.

Comparing the packaging of the two products, I think the Verve Energy shot has a much more appealing bottle. It looks like a skinny oil can and has a very neat shape to it. At retail next to a cash register, the Verve Energy Shot Bottle will stand out.

After tasting these two shots, I really like the taste of the Verve energy shot. It has a better flavor and doesn’t have a nasty bite after you drink it. Advantage Verve.

After looking at both of these Energy Shots, I think the Verve Energy shot has a shot at taking some market share from the 5 hour energy shot. Comparing ingredients, packaging and taste, there is a massive difference.
