Fix the cause: Lack of energy can come from a variety of situations. Dehydration (not drinking at least 5 cups of water a day), lack of sleep/poor sleep, skipping meals, stress, sleep apnea/snoring, chronic sinus problems, caffeine withdrawal, chronic illness (such as anemia) or allergies can cause low energy. See your doctor.

Magic to fix fatigue: Hi i often wonder if in our culture we all believe that a pill will fix us.

Moving regularly, limiting sugar, alcohol, and other unhealthy choices one can naturally feel better. One can sleep better.

Tired all the time: Healthy foods are your best foods. Eating lighter meals, lean proteins (chicken and fish) at regular intervals also helps. Caffeine can be helpful in small doses 1-2 cups of coffee or tea per day. As higher numbers of cups of coffee are associated with other health issues.

A 44-year-old male asked:

Amino energy supplement , is it safe to drink?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kent

Most likely yes: If it is the amino energy mix i know about, it has multiple Amino Acids (which are safe and can help build muscle for workouts) and green tea and coffee extract which gives about 200mg of caffeine. The caffeine prior to workout can cause problems, especially if you have cardiac issues, arrythmia, or if you're dehydrated. If you are healthy, then the drink is most likely safe without issues.
