How do Revvies strips work?
Studies show that caffeine enhances performance, mental clarity, concentration, memory, alertness and can help keep you awake. New research has also shown that small frequent amounts of caffeine can often work better than one big dose. Revvies Energy Strips contain 40mg of caffeine. (equivalent to about half a cup of coffee).
Just put one flat on your tongue and rub it between your tongue and the roof of your mouth until dissolved (Do not chew). This should take about 30 seconds.
Because Revvies Energy Strips contain caffeine they are not recommended for children, pregnant or lactating women and those sensitive to caffeine.
The strips are available in various flavours including the Original Arctic Charge for a refreshing boost, Tropical Hit and Cola Lemon Spark.
All the strips are sugar-free, vegan and gluten free and can be taken without water as the product dissolves on the tongue after a few seconds.
On the Revvies Energy website customers in Australia can purchase four packets of five strips for $12.95.

Number one UK runner Samantha Amend said in a Facebook video she uses the strips before and during long-distance marathons because the product isn’t made with harsh chemicals and doesn’t aggravate her stomach.
Ms Amend said throughout her 15 years of competitive running she has ‘struggled’ with stomach issues, and so she opted to use healthy products that don’t negatively effect her performance during a run.
She said Revvies are very convenient to use while exercising because they melt quickly and are approved to use during competitive sports.
