Benefits of the Product
Revvies are an ultrathin mouth strip containing 40 mg of caffeine. This small format provides athletes, students and busy people with the ability to have a fast, convenient, sugar-free caffeine boost with them at all times. The 5-pack fits any pocket, purse, gym bag or glovebox, avoiding the need to queue every time you need a caffeine hit.
The brain child of Australian and New Zealand friends, Revvies is manufactured in the UK under GMP conditions and is accredited through the Informed-Sport nutritional quality assurance program, meaning that every batch is tested in their world-class lab.
Revvies is not designed to replace coffee, caffeinated drinks or sports gels, but Revvies has an edge on these other sources in many situations. Sometimes we just don’t have time to queue, wait and then drink a coffee or caffeinated drink. Revvies allows people to reach into their pocket, purse, gym bag or glovebox and 30-40 seconds later they’re good to go.
For athletes Revvies allows them to take a little caffeine immediately before or during exercise without having to take additional calories or liquid. This allows for their nutritional plans to be more carefully designed and because they are so easy to carry they can be taken on any ride or run and consumed when needed.
