No energy drinks. But something healthy that will pick up my energy. I work very hard at work and it drains me.
If you feel drained, you need to restore your adrenals. There is a complex protocol, but it can be done in a rather short time.
The best food for energy at any time for anything is FRESH or DRIED ARABIAN DATES. Dates are amazing, they tatse really nice and also within 10 minutes of eating them, you immediately feel energetic and lively.
I work double shifts sometimes and when i get home late night, i eat only one or two, and away i go full of energy and refreshed. You can buy them from any supermarket or grocery. Give it a go and let me know how it's worked for you.
Always works for me. You can even diet just by eating dates and cereal without having anything else. I lost alot of fat over a period of two weeks after taking a date and excercisinf for an hour, then having one after. For lunch and dinner i used to eat two or three plus a small bowl of Kellog's Bran Flakes. After two weeks, i felt and looked fantastic!
Try eating Dates, it definitely will help you.
Try USANA Essentials. It is composed of Vitamins, Minerals, and Antioxidants. You can consult the book: Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements by Dr. Lyle MacWilliam. It is very informative in guiding us which supplements are the best. In their guide, the Essentials ranked among the Best. But you can choose from the list depending on what you want.
I take these everyday and I noticed a big difference because I don't get too tired when I finish late at work unlike before.
..be sure your multi vit/mineral contains 75 mgs of complex b's (the hi energy vitamins). NO ONE eats a balanced meal everday.
Be sure to compliment your daily diet with a "powerful" vitamin/mineral pill......and exercise every day!
ginseng is supposed to be good, but I can't vouch for it from personal experience.
We sell a lot of 5hour energy shots, no crash, full of vitamins like B12
I take Manda Koso and Cellfood. These two supplements work best for me, but everyone is different.
Eat more green raw vegetables. For a boost you can use a blender. Go to bed early enough so you don't need an alarm clock to wake you up. Do some yoga outdoors.
Green Tea is supposed to be good for your energy level. This tea has more caffine than regualr tea. Also boosts metabolism and many other benefits. Although it can help keep going nothing beats a good nites sleep to help you regenerate!
You're right about the Green Tea. The problem is it tastes so nasty. I've boought a few boxes of Green Tea with good intentions and forced myself to drink it. Even w/honey and lemon, it's a struggle but it has great health benefits and if it will boost my energy, I might try it again. Thanks.
Actually, green tea has far less caffeine than any other tea.
As far as health, there really isn't anything it doesn't benefit. Green tea can be described as a bit high-maintinence. If you don't like the taste, it's probably because you're steeping it too long. Never steep it for more than two minutes - and that's for stronger tea. After the two minute mark the hot water starts to bring out a bitter taste.
There are some Green tea pills on the market as well. I wrote a hub on it if you want to check it out..
something that provides cellular energy. stimulates give you a crash. they are terrible. look for a supplement that provides cellualr energy that will sustain you and in your body. i suggest 10-in-one i love it. let me know if you want to try it. amazing energy, no crash, safe! and it works.
Things I use for quick energy are high sugar fruit like dates, bannanas etc etc but if you want sustained energy you could add some fat with the fruit.
I have found a small glass of orange juice gives me more a reviving boost than anything else I've tried. Couple it with some lowfat protein (ie, string cheese, tuna, a couple slices of turkey or chicken lunchmeat) for sustained energy.
It sounds like you're not getting enough green veggies in your diet. Remember, energy is all about what you're eating and if you're eating poorly, your body will suffer.
Load up on a green smoothies and when you need a boost during the middle of the day, try a glass or orange or apple juice.
The lack of nutritional understanding of mind boggling.
There are plenty of resources online where you can learn about REAL Nutrition. A great place to start is learning how the human body process the different types of sugars and macro nutrients. Ignorance is rampant.
The following link has products which can help with this http://joshuaboyd.usana.com.
Simply put I use the My Health Pack, Nutrameal Shakes and bars in between somewhat healthy meals, and Rev3 which for an energy drink is pretty healthy/clean to eat.
For me I find the following to be helpful to keep the "crash" minimized in my daily routine. Hope this helps.

I believe that every person can find his best food for energy, we are not all equal. Mine is honey
Well, nobody wants my "energy cure" on this thread, but I can't resist - Coffee! Lots of coffee! (How do you think I'm up at 4:30 in the morning. )
coffee is ace, but everyone seems to think i should stop drinking it., Have a huge cup here of the very same.....
I suggest vitamin B.
If drink some energy beverage, they also includes other bed components.Like E-for saving a lot of time.
One of the better solutions is to increase your meals from 3 to 6 smaller ones throughout the day. Make sure you have a portion of lean protein, healthy low glycemic index carbs, and veggies. Save the fruit for in the morning because of the high sugar content.
Don't get stuck on preparing 6 meals. There are protein powders that are cost effective and tastey and you can make great smoothies from them. A shake with nothing in it, a little yogurt, or piece of fruit or some raw veggies is a good idea for one meal. Eggs, cottage cheese, protein bars, lean lunch meat, and many more options for sources of quick obtainable protein.
Also incorporate a regular exercise routine in your schedule. Don't claim you don't have time for it. Ignoring your health isn't going to make you a more valuable employee.
By doing this, you optimize your system, digestion, and blood sugar levels. If you're having afternoon crashes, this will likely help a lot in avoiding them.
All the other vits and mins and natural things listed by others can also be beneficial, but if you start with the basics and go from there, you'll have the energy you need throughout the day.
To increase my energy I drink about 3 tablespoons of coconut oil a day with fresh vegetable or fruit pulp juice.
You can try the tropical fruit Amalaki. You can get it as pills or powder form. I would recommend the powder form because of the unpleasant taste. It has huge amount of vitamin c and is recommended for sports people. It boosts your energy and strengthens the immune system along with many other benefits. You can easily find it online.
There are many goos natural product that are good for your energy. The key is to find a clean adaptogenic product without any toxic effects whatever.If you want to feel better overall,sleep better and have more energy I clearly endorse Tahitia Noni Juice. I have used it for 15 years and feel really great. So do the celebrities that use it as well.
spinach and green drinks always work well with giving good energy
I think that vitamin B - especially vitamin B-12 can help to raise your energy levels naturally. If you don't have enough vitamin B or iron it can make you feel tired.
The best source of energy drink, vitamins, and minerals come from pressing your own juice everyday. Try juicing organic leafy green vegetables and colorful fruits. It reaches the cellular level and feeds the cells directly with natural enzymes. I juice everyday and never take vitamins.
