Energy Supplements

People take energy supplements for a large number of reasons. It is important for you to make sure that you are choosing the right one for your specific needs to ensure that your choice will be both safe and appropriate. While some people prefer to take them in the form of tablets, others like shakes, bars, or other types of drinks.

Before taking energy supplements, it is highly recommended that you speak with your doctor. This is not only because you will want to make sure that you are using these products safely and effectively, but you will also want to avoid accidentally misusing these products, as their overuse can lead to fatigue instead of a boost.

Among the many reasons that you might want to use energy supplements are:

  • For bodybuilding
  • To stay alert for long and intense work days
  • To help combat depression (though you may want to speak with your doctor before starting this type of action)
  • Due to a lack of exercise that has lead to chronic fatigue
  • Helping to combat fatigue after a bad night’s sleep
  • Smoking
  • Overuse of stimulants
  • Overuse of alcohol or recreational drugs
  • Improper eating habits
  • Or many other reasons

 

Common ingredients in energy supplements can range from guarana and caffeine to ginseng or creatine. Though many can be used very safely and comfortably, those based on certain stimulants will often lead to uncomfortable side effects. These can range from feeling jittery or anxious to experiencing heart palpitations and other more severe reactions.

It is recommended that these products be taken by individuals who are sure that they are properly hydrated, as the inability of your system to use water to flush some of the ingredients through can cause symptoms of side effects to be more severe.

There are two primary types of energy supplements. Those that provide a sudden burst of energy which then drops off in a crash, and those that provide a more sustained and gradual reaction for more long term energy that is less likely to drop off. If you aren’t sure which product is right for you, it is a good idea to read reviews and customer feedback, and to look into the ingredients that each formula contains. This will help you to become more familiar with the various products that are available and what type of results you should be able to expect from them.
