Sprayable Energy: When You Need a Break, But Cant Have One   Sprayable Energy spray caffeine through your skin 500x375

We’ve all had them: those seemingly endless workdays where you’re pretty sure if you drink any more coffee your stomach lining is going to resemble Swiss cheese. But you’re still tired, and you’re looking at hours to go before you can rest. In my world, this happens on a somewhat regular basis, and sometimes my “coffee break” isn’t nearly long enough to actually consume a cup of coffee. For a while, there was bottled water with caffeine in it, which I loved, but I haven’t seen that in years. So I settle for slamming down sodas and hope for the best, but then that’s not really very good for you. But what’s a girl to do?

Spray on some energy, that’s what! Sprayable Energy is a small canister that fits in your pocket, purse, or bag easily, and can provide you with that little bit of extra oomph required to go on with your day. The liquid inside is a mixture of water, caffeine, and derivative of tyrosine. I had to look that up…tyrosine one of the 22 amino acids that are used by cells to synthesize proteins. The tyrosine is important because caffeine isn’t overly soluble, so mixing it makes it much easier to absorb through your skin. Each spritz is supposed to be the equivalent of 1/4 cup of coffee, so four sprays on your neck and you’ll get a much-needed boost. It takes somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes to affect you, depending on where you spray and how quickly it absorbs into your particular skin.

Here’s the (sort of) bad part. This isn’t on the market yet. In fact, it’s currently a project on Indiegogo. But…it’s not all bad. They’ve still got over a month left for pledges, and they’re at more than twice their goal already. I must not be the only one who wants some of this immediately. A pledge of just $15.00 US will get you a bottle shipped free to anywhere in the US. As with all crowd-funded projects, you can of course pledge more and get progressively neater return. Top pledge listed that is still available is $449.00 US, which nets you 52 bottles (listed as a two-year supply). It’s also listed as $331.00 US off retail ($15.00 US per bottle, which is supposed to last about two weeks), and they call it the “Zombie Apocalypse Stockpile.” I really like these guys.

Shipping is expected to be November 2013.
