When you look at their Uptime Power Base, it's not the best. Taurine (which is an extremely cheap amino), COQ10 (which is good), and some herbs. The problem is, it's all 178 mg of this, so it's what? 30-50mg per ingredient? That won't give you much energy. When I drank it, it gave me lots of energy, just not as much as I'd like. I’d recommend GFuel, Guru or something else, but not this.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
