If you take a walk down the aisles of your local grocery store you are likely to see quite a few products advertised as energy boosters. Items such as five hour energy drinks, caffeine free energy products, over the counter energy pills and all manner of other energy boosting supplements are available to help you stay alert and focused during your day.

We all know that the most common energy booster is caffeine, which is why so many drink coffee—apart from the fact that it tastes good. Other sources of caffeine and related substances are green tea, yerba mate, kola nut and guarana. Other sources of energizing stimulants are red peppers—capsaicin—ginseng, and the ingredient synephrine, found in bitter orange.

What Exactly is Energy?

Energy, in terms of the body, is kinetic motion of the body to move, run, walk or complete tasks within certain physical boundaries. We get our energy from the foods we eat and the drinks we consume and those foods and drinks contain nutrients that our body needs in order to produce energy. If you have ever been ill with flu or had an illness that debilitates you, you may find that you lack energy. Many people eat poor diets and that can lead to a lack of energy production in the body. Without the vitamins and minerals obtained from the correct foods we consume, we would run out of energy and lose weight, feel tired and lack concentration.

Sometimes we need a little boost if we have had a sleepless night, a long week or just feel drained. Most of the time eating the right foods can help boost your energy, but if you are on the go and in a hurry you can take energy boosting supplements, such as drinks, pills or powders to help give you a little extra energy. Of course, the best way to keep constant energy levels is to eat plenty of the right vegetables and fruit—your five a day—as well as drinking water and other drinks that contain the right amount of vitamins and minerals. The local grocery store is a wash with energy boosting products, but essentially, the fresh produce aisle is really the old place you need to look.
