Lipovitan D is not new, if you've heard me talk about Japan. I love this stuff. It's a "nutrient drink" produced by Taisho Pharmaceutical Company. It's basically an energy drink that tastes a little like medicine. Other products by Taisho Pharma include RiUP hair-growth treatment, the hangover remedy Balancer Ichoyaku, and a laxative called Colac. They're big in Japan. You can get Lipovitan in the States, but it is not the same as the Japanese formula. Here are some ingredients from the bottle:
taurine - 1000mg
nicotine acid extract - 20mg
vitamin B1 - 5mg
vitamin B2 - 5mg
vitamin B6 - 5mg
caffeine - 50mg
Yeah. Lipovitan is great. It warns on the side, however, not to consume more that one bottle (100mL) per day. So I haven't. Yet.
On a side note, Rokuda-san told me that he is good friends with the Vice President of Capcom Japan, and that we three should go golfing together. Capcom, for those who are unaware, make some of the best games in the world. Mega Man, Street Fighter, Resident Evil... Awesome.
