    Do you rely on substances for extra energy?

    Some people use energy shots, some drink lots of coffee and Red Bull is extremely.popular. I use caffeine tablets for extra energy, and find that it helps md ADD, as well. Does anybody here use anything that works? Vitamins? Supplements? Certain foods? Bueller?

    No, I don't rely on any substances for extra energy.  I have one diet cherry Dr. Pepper that last from breakfast until about 3 in the afternoon, so the caffeine intake is pretty slight.  I find that caffeine makes me really depressed.

    At my age a good nap is kind of enticing for the extra energy...or just because it feels good!

    no;  I drink coffee, but not lots.  it doesn't give me energy or make me alert, anyway.
    wouldn't touch those energy drinks--  took a little sip of one years ago & it was awful- plus they haven't been on the market long enough to know the possible long-term effects of all the crud that's in them.

      I don't like coffee, but I knew a guy that had a heart attack, partly from too many energy drinks. Scary stuff.

    The vitamin for energy is B-6, the supplement is fish, or flax seed oil. Should not exceed 1000mg of B-6 a day. Recommended dosage is 250mg twice a day of B-6, and 1000-2000mg of Fish oil a day. The B vitamins may be taken in a complex formula. Natural fat will give you sustained energy.

    I do drink an excessive amount of coffee. I don't consciously do it for energy, but at times it does seem to help with my alertness (and makes me less cranky).
