Have questions about e+? You can find answers to some of the most frequently asked on our pdf flyer and shown below:
WHO IS e+ DESIGNED FOR?
e+ is designed for those looking for a more mental and/or physical performance boost, anyone looking to increase their body’s capacity to perform better under stressful circumstances, and anyone looking to enhance physical activity and recovery.
HOW DOES e+ INCREASE ENDURANCE AND STAMINA?
e+ may have beneficial effects on endurance and stamina due to its adaptogenic botanicals. Adaptogens have been studied in athletes for decades, most notably in Russian Olympians, and have been shown to support increased energy production and improved endurance by decreasing the perception of effort and elevating cardiovascular function. Research also shows a benefit to exercise performance after consuming caffeine.
HOW DOES e+ ENHANCE COGNITIVE FUNCTION?
e+ may have beneficial effects on cognitive function mainly due to the natural caffeine and adaptogenic botanicals contained in each serving. Rhodiola, eleuthero root, and schizandra berry have all shown to increase speed and accuracy during stressful cognitive tasks. Also, caffeine has been found to improve alertness.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE e+ OVER OTHER ENERGY SHOTS?
Many other energy shots may have excessive levels of caffeine, which could potentially cause unwelcome side effects. They may also use too much sugar (excessive amounts), artificial sweeteners, flavors and coloring. In addition, no other energy shot on the market contains our proprietary adaptogenic botanical blend that helps provide the simultaneous boost to energy and physical performance.
HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF e+ LAST?
The safe and natural ingredients in e+ can affect individuals differently; therefore e+ might work differently for each individual. e+ is fast acting and can increase energy that may lasts for hours. We recommend using one half (1/2) of a bottle, or 1 ounce, for moderate energy and one whole bottle or 2 ounces for maximum energy; maximum of two bottles daily. To find out how e+ works for you, drink one half (1/2) of a bottle, hold it in your mouth to savor the taste, wait 10 minutes and then decide if you want more. If you have any medical conditions, are pregnant, nursing, diabetic, on medication or otherwise have any concerns of if e+ is right for you, please check with your physician before taking this or any supplement.
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE e+?
e+ is great to take in the morning, during a mid-day crash or whenever mental and physical energy is draining. e+ can also be effectively used before an athletic workout, as its content of natural adaptogenic botanicals and caffeine may enhance physical performance and endurance. e+ is also great for traveling and action-packed vacations, when alertness or an extra boost of energy for physical activity is required. Caffeine or e+ should never be used as an alternative for sleep.
WHAT IS THE CAFFEINE CONTENT IN A 2-OUNCE SHOT OF e+ AND HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO OTHER PRODUCTS CONTAINING CAFFEINE?
e+ includes caffeine equivalent to a typical 7-ounce brewed cup of coffee. It is enough to give you a safe and effective energy boost. Click on the image below to see a comparison with other common caffeinated products:

e+ contains naturally occurring caffeine from green tea and yerba maté, which can be a healthy addition to your routine if you’re seeking an energy boost.
WHAT IS YERBA MATÉ EXTRACT AND GREEN TEA EXTRACT AND WHAT ARE THEIR BENEFITS?
Green tea is made from the leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis and is widely consumed worldwide, especially in Asia. This extract contains catechins that have shown to stimulate thermogenesis (i.e. increase your fat-burning potential), increase antioxidant status, and reduce stress. Green tea extract is also a natural source of caffeine.
Yerba maté is an herbal tea beverage that is a natural source of caffeine and has been widely consumed for centuries in South America. It is made from an infusion of the dried leaves of a plant (Ilex paraguariensis), native to southern Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. Regular consumption of yerba maté can provide health benefits for your cardiovascular system, protect against oxidative stress. The health benefits of yerba maté are largely attributed to its high concentration of bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, flavonoids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
DOES e+ CONTAIN ARTIFICIAL COLORS, SWEETENERS OR FLAVORS?
e+ does not contain any artificial colors, sweeteners or flavors.
IS CAFFEINE BAD FOR ME?
Many studies on caffeine have demonstrated that moderate caffeine consumption—equivalent up to 400 milligrams per day (3 to 4 cups of brewed coffee)—poses no health risk to most people. The average adult in the U.S. consumes approximately 120 milligrams per day (or 1.73 milligrams per kilogram of body weight per day). The American Medical Association (AMA) considers 250 milligrams, or five servings, of caffeinated soft drinks or tea as average. The general AMA recommendation is to not exceed doses higher than 250 milligrams at a time or 400 milligrams in a day.
HOW DO I USE e+?
Isagenix® recommends drinking no more than two (2) bottles of e+ daily. Take it in the morning, during a mid-day crash or whenever mental and physical energy are low. e+ can also be effectively used for athletic workouts, while traveling and anytime an extra boost of energy is needed.
CAN YOU USE e+ ON CLEANSE DAYS?
Yes, e+ can be taken on Cleanse Days (no more than two (2) bottles) when you need that extra boost of energy during the day. Isagenix Chief Science Officer Suk Cho and the Research and Science Team recently conducted a study at the request of Isagenix Founder and Master Formulator John W. Anderson to evaluate the effects of e+ on individuals during Cleanse Days. Preliminary results found e+ is an effective tool in supporting the weight loss from the 9-Day Deep Cleansing and Fat Burning System.
ARE e+ BOTTLES RECYCLABLE?
Yes, the plastic used in our bottles is 100% recyclable. Isagenix has always embraced the importance of recycling, and we recently redoubled our efforts to make recycling the highest priority by implementing sustainable packaging practices. Isagenix plastic containers are also completely biodegradable and Cheerful Planet Certified containing our proprietary, completely safe and non-toxic resin additive that helps them break down more quickly when introduced to a microbe-rich environment–such as a landfill or compost pile.
