You mentioned Green Tea Extract. I don’t take it but I drink a cup of green tea every day and believe me, I get an energy boost from it. I will try green tea extract too.

I take coffee as my energy booster no other beverage, because it does not only help me stay awake but also delivers me so many other health benefits. the one that i like is longevity. Researchers have found that people who drink coffee on daily basis live longer than those who abstain from it.

Creatine doesn’t get marketed as an “energy booster”. It will help with muscle power and strength due to Creatine Monohydrates effect on regenerating ATP, so if you are strength training you may notice an “energy” boost whilst training in as far as more power and strength, but if you’re a couch potato it’s not going to to much for energy. Also very few if any main stream soft drinks/energy drinks contain creatine due to it’s instability in fluids. Also Chromium doesn’t typically get marketed as an energy booster nor have I ever come across it being marketed for muscle building either, it may help stabilise blood sugar which may help avoid blood sugar crashes from high GI carbs though and that is typically why it is used.

Lots of people complain about lacking in energy and yes, there are lots of “energy boosters” for sale in response to that demand and diet is so important to provide us with energy. However, I also think a cleanse or detox from time to time can help the body to help itself – there are many around however I have tried this nutritional cleanse.

You are so right and I’m agree that pills, suppelments, and the like is always have some side effects. Even once I have no option beside taking them, I’ll be selective and not taking it carelessly. It’s same like you said, it’s better to have a healthy living to lead our health to the best than something that just improve us for awhile…

To Meisha – To expand on your comments I would say that we should all try to eat proper food for at least a week or two on regular basis in order to give our body a chance to rest and recover from all the artificial intakes it usually endures. By proper food I mean fresh vegetables and fruits as well as fish and nuts. I do it regularly and believe me I feel much better for it and my body naturally doesn’t want all these pills or supplements anymore.
