Energy Drinks and Caffeine Related Problems

There has been a lot of talk about all the High Energy drinks that primarily rely on Caffeine causing major health problems. 

Mostly for frequent users and certainly for those who abuse by over indulging or adding alcohol to the mix. This is not a current problem, it has been been on going for many years, but has escalated due to the rushed life style we all now live and the need for more energy to keep up. Read this article from the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The makers of Ruck-Pack knew that there had to be a better way
and they created a caffeine free energy shot.
Once you try it you will realize that caffeine is not the answer and those
two cups of coffee you had this morning are enough caffeine for the day.


RuckPack is the combination of an energy shot BATTLE TESTED and nutritional supplement; defining a new category within the energy drink and sports energy drink markets – Peak Performance Nutrition. The only nutritional shot created on the battlefield by Special Operations Forces Marines for the rigor of war, RuckPack is proven to sustain peak mental and physical performance.
RuckPack was developed by Robert Dyer, an active duty Marine Corps Officer and other Special Ops Marines to provide a single source of supplemental nutrition for troops in the battlefield. Officer Dyer’s vision was to produce a power-packed vitamin & energy shot capable of delivering maximum performance, caffeine-free.


RuckPack is now available to elite athletes, and other active people seeking a boost in energy, endurance, and overall health from natural sources.
