Energy Enhancement

Vegas Nites

by admin

Ever look for a great pre-game supplement? Something that despite whatever grind, stress, or hassle you’ve been through that day, can give you energy, and a mood lift? There’s a TON of things out there that claim to do this, but only a few that actually do. No really, search “party pills” and see all the things offered. Well, after trying out, and being disappointed with many of the products out there, we present to you Vegas Nites.

Vegas Nites Party Pills is a 2 pill formula that’s great for an energy, and mood boost, before hitting the town, or even a big meeting or presentation. Vegas Nites contains the following:
-5-HTP ……..Precursor to serotonin (mood enhancer)
-Vinpocentine…….Mental Alertness
-Yohimbe……..Increase sexual adrenaline
-Epimedium Sagitatum……..Increase sexual libido
-Calcium Carbonate……Absorb alcohol & toxins
-White Willow Bark………Natural pain reliever
-B Vitamins……..Replenish energy & electrolytes
-Croscarmellose Sodium…………….Time release agent

We like it for its long lasting, but not overpowering uplift. It compliments a few adult beverages quite nicely. It can counterbalance the “whash your nasme?” brain and tongue dulling effects that 1 extra vodka and soda can bring. If you’re trying to cut back on the booze, but yet find you often need it to loosen up, Vegas Nites might just be the thing for you. It tends to reduce social anxiety a bit, in our experience.

The flipside is that if you’re expecting it to have a great hangover protectant in it, it doesnt. It can help if you’ve only had a couple. If you’re most definitely taking a cab home, and your friends have taken your keys, this won’t fix the train wreck you will feel like in the morning. It is a very good formula however, that’s close to an “all in one” party pill.

Nightlife’s Suggestion:
Take 2 of these about an hour before getting to your destination. You can drink less than usual, if you’re looking to reduce your social anxiety towards that adorable hottie in the corner. If you do go over your limit, take a couple of No Hang with the last drink, or with a sports drink before bed.

Nightlife Supplements is THE Ultimate source for enhancing your nightlife!


Swagger by Man SportsSwagger from MAN Sports is designed for confidence, concentration, and energy. “The ingredients in SWAGGER™ are designed to keep you confident, focused and full of energy so you can handle whatever life throws your way successfully and with style.” Swagger has a suggested serving size of 3 caps, and contains:
N-Acetyl-Tyrosine, Citicoline, Phenylethylamine (PEA), Caffeine Malate, DMAE, Bacopa monniri, Rhodiola Rosea, Picamilon, GeranatimTM (1,3-dimethylamylamine), Yohimbine HCl , and Vitamin B-6. Recommended use, as an adult dietary supplement: take 3 SWAGG-Caps once daily, preferably with food. Swagger normally retails in the $30-$33 range for a bottle.

In personal testing of Swagger, I mostly would take it roughly an hour before work, on an empty stomach, and sometimes with food. I know your supposed to take it with food, but sometimes the morning is such a rush, that you forget in getting ready, and running out the door. A few times I took it before going out on the town. I went through 1 entire bottle, and used it nearly every day.

I found the confidence boosting properties of Swagger to be very good. Especially when taken before going into social or work settings that would normally make me a bit anxious or nervous. This was especially true in reducing what’s termed “approach anxiety” in some circles of opening up a conversation with an attractive member of the opposite sex. The focus properties were not spectacular, but present. The effect usually wore off after a couple of hours, and wasn’t nearly as strong as some other focus specific products that have been reviewed previously.

What really didn’t impress me at all, were the energy and mood enhancement properties. The energy may have been comparable to a cup of coffee or two at most, and over a slightly longer period than the normal coffee “liftoff and crash.” Let’s just say they wont be scaring App Nut’s Black Cats in the energy department anytime soon. Swagger’s mood enhancement properties were possibly present, but not super noticeable. Some products, like Happy Pills give a very present, and noticeable boost, that puts you on a veritable Cloud 9. Your mileage may vary, but I don’t see it happening here.

Nightlife’s Verdict:2.5 stars (out of 5)
Swagger’s tag line is confidence, concentration, and energy. 1.5 out of 3 ain’t bad, but it ain’t great either. If your looking for a replacement for your morning Joe, Ritalin to help you focus, or your Prozac to make you feel better, this isn’t your product. If your looking for a pure confidence booster, Swagger may just be your ticket.


Black Cats are Applied Nutriceuticals new energy product. Applied Nutriceuticals (a.k.a APP NUT) is known in the supplement industry for their “no hype, just make great products and let them speak for them selves” approach. Adding to their lines of both sports and wellness products are Black Cats. Black Cats have been designed to be “The perfect energy product,” and are designed for pre-workouts, a morning coffee replacement, and for whenever the day gets long, and your feet are tired. One serving is two caps, and contains contains a 1000mg Blend of, Natural Caffeine, Cocoa Ext (25% Theobromine),Licorice Root (26% ext), Naringin (98% ext), 1,3 Dimethylamylamine, White Willow Back (25% extract), and Bioperine (95%-98% piperine). One bottle contains 60 caps, and will retail for about $19.99-23.99 or so depending on the supplier.

When I first tried Black Cats, I popped just 1 pill at about 5:45AM, on an empty stomach. Now, I’m not as heavy a stimulant user as I once was, but waking up super early has me hating and cursing my life a few days a week. For those early mornings, coffee or energy drinks, and don’t really do what I’m fully looking for. I’ve grown mostly immune to them. Imagine my surprise,when the 1 pill lasted until about 12 pm or so, then slowly faded over about 2 hours! NEVER, do I remember just 1 pill doing something like that. Keep in mind, I spent nearly 10 years in the service industry, and once upon a time used to pop Yellow Jackets with ephedra in them almost like candy. So, lets just say, I’ve been around a myriad of stims for years.

I had the opportunity to participate in an early beta test of this product in the summer of 08, and liked it a lot. That version was a balanced blend, in that it gave a solid energy boost, and a chatterbox mental up- lift feeling, that a wise guy like myself just loves.
The effect of this version is more pure energy and focus. The days I’ve taking it before work recently, I do manage do get more work done, and it’s easier for ADHD me to focus. I’ve been taking 1 pill in the morning, then another 1 about 8-9 hours later. I’m still too scared to try 2 at once. They do have a very long burn to them, rather than a quick blast then crash.

Nightlife’s Verdict: 6 Stars!!!!!! (out of 5)

The only thing that can even touch this were the early versions of Stimulant X, which are sadly no longer available. This may be the de facto best stimulant since the ephedra ban.
I really love the price of about 33 cents a cap, and the VERY long effective time. I don’t need any Starbucks, Red Bull, or anything else when I have Black Cats. I bought 1 bottle to try out, and review for this site. Be assured dear reader, that I will be buying more, and can not speak highly enough about this product. APP Nut has a tremendous winner here!
