What Makes Us Different?
Hitting the proverbial “wall” is one of the worst feelings ever! There’s laundry to do still, kids to pick up, work to finish, dinner to cook, and the list just seems to go on and on. AND…all you want to do is NAP! We’ve all been there, loaded up on caffeine, candy, and whatever other sugars rush high we can get! But besides throwing down a ton of sugar, where do we get the energy to manage the never-ending to-do list AND have enough left for whatever comes next? Does it EVER end? Well, maybe not, but our healthy energy shots may be just what you’re looking for! Ganbaru Energy is unique from other energy drinks because we use the body’s natural energy production systems. It’s a caffeine-free energy boost!
Whether you use Ganbaru as a workout energy booster, take pre-workout shots, or just make it on the other side of lunchtime, our energy drink packets will leave you with a feeling of that extra pep in your step. Best of all, there is ZERO SUGAR, so you don’t worry about jitters or the inevitable crash that comes with other energy drink shots.
Clinically proven to improve stamina and fight fatigue, Ganbaru Energy helps keep you focused, ready, and pumped to take on or finish your day strong!
What makes our energy drink powder mix different? CarnoSyn®- Clinically proven to improve endurance and delay fatigue. PeakATP®- Has shown to reduce muscular fatigue and improve lean body mass.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take Ganbaru every day?
Absolutely! In fact to get the full benefit of the product we recommend you take it daily for a minimum of 28 days. If you're looking for an even bigger performance boost you can even take up to two servings daily. But we don't recommend taking more than that as the research doesn't really support any additional benefit.
Can I use Ganbaru as a preworkout?
Yes. We actually recommend it. Just take it approximately 30 minutes prior to your workout for the best results.
