Is it ok to stop drinking sodas and start caffeine pills?

Probably Not.: Caffeine from natural sources- coffee, teas, dark chocolate- is probably good for health in general. Caffeine, however, is not designed to treat fatigue or sleepiness or any other condition.

I have gymnastics training 12 times/week, but can't keep up. Too tired. Is it ok to take caffeine pills to boost workout?

No: The goal is to do it all the natural way. Healthy, natural foods, drinks, and habits. Avoid pills, supplements, etc... unless there is a deficiency of something. Thus, one can see a primary care doctor to check for the cause of tiredness. That is to make sure there is not a medical problem, such as a sleep disorder (where one seems to be sleeping but is not resting his brain), or other issues. ...Read more
