Probably, but: a better question is why do you need to boost your energy? Are you not sleeping well? Is there something going on in your body? Are you depressed?
It might be worth seeing a primary care provider to make sure you're healthy, and if so, focus on a healthy diet and physical activity instead of supplements!
