Overview

What is an energy boost?
It isn't an easy task to define an "energy boost". 
The word ENERGY is defined as: the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity derived from the utilization of physical or chemical resources.
The word BOOST is defined as: To help or encourage (something) to increase or improve.
So an ENERGY BOOST might be defined as: The utilization of physical of chemical resources to increase or improve sustained physical or mental activity.


What causes the mental alertness that accompanies an energy boost?

Your brain activity is controlled by chemicals called neurotransmitters, which either stimulate brain cells or quiet them. Adenosine is a quieting neurotransmitter. Caffeine attaches to adenosine receptors on your brain cells, blocking the quieting effect of this neurotransmitter. The net effect of caffeine, therefore, is stimulation. The increased activity of your brain cells under the influence of caffeine leads to a secondary rise in the amount of epinephrine in your body. Epinephrine is the "fight or flight" hormone, which has stimulating effects on your brain and body.

There is also adrenaline. Adrenaline is a hormone produced by the body that is secreted through the adrenal glands. It is released into the blood stream in conditions of stress, increasing rates of blood circulation, breathing, and carbohydrate metabolism and preparing muscles for exertion. Some people who are "thrill seekers" find ways to excite themselves in daring stunts to get an adrenaline rush.


Is caffeine safe?
According to the Mayo Clinic up to 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day appears to be safe for most healthy adults. That's roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola or two "energy shot" drinks.

Are there other stimulants that can be used to create energy?
Yes there are many herbs that have adaptogen properties. An adaptogen is said to increases one's ability to adapt to environmental factors, including physical and emotional stress. 

  • Siberian Ginseng:
    • Siberian Ginseng has been used for thousands of years as a Chinese medicine.
    • The Chinese call Siberian Ginseng ci wu ju. In traditional Chinese medicine Siberian Ginseng is used to invigorate qi, strengthen the spleen, nourish the kidney and most importantly provide energy and vitality.
    • In traditional Russian medicine, Siberian ginseng is used to stimulate the immune system
    • Siberian ginseng is among the five adaptogens most commonly used by Western herbalists.
    • As an adaptogen it would fit perfectly into an herbal formula that's purpose was to boost the energy level of an individual.
  • Yerba Mate:
    • Yerba mate comes from the leaves and twigs of the Ilex paraguariensis plant.
    • Yerba mate contains several beneficial plant nutrients, including:
      • Xanthines: These compounds act as stimulants. They include caffeine and theobromine, which are also found in tea, coffee, and chocolate.
      • Caffeoyl derivatives: These compounds are the main health-promoting antioxidants in the tea.
      • Saponins: These bitter compounds have certain anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-lowering properties.
      • Polyphenols: This is a large group of antioxidants, linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.
  • Gotu Kola:
    • Gotu Kola is referred to as the herb of enlightenment and longevity.
    • Gotu Kola is one of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine’s most treasured herbal medicines
    • Gotu Kola is also called Sanskrit: Brahmi in Sanskrit (ancient Indo-European language) and the Latin name is Centella asiatica
    • Gotu Kola is traditionally used to increase the cognitive processes and thus make one feel as if they have been energized.
  • Ginger:
    • Indians and Chinese are believed to have produced ginger as a tonic root for over 5000 years to treat many ailments. 
    • At least 115 constituents in fresh and dried ginger varieties have been identified. And are currently being studied for efficasy and safety as an anyi-nausea agent, anti-inflammatory and as an anti-oxidant. You can see the summary and conclusions of the hundreds of studies listed at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
    • Ginger is also well known for its adaptogen properties.

Testimonials: For three years I was always tired. Although I tried to eat well I seemed to have little energy. My condition kept getting worse. I went to the doctor a few times and he said that I was low on energy and a little stressed, but my health was fine. I read that herbs help overcome fatigue. The health food store suggested Grandma’s herbal ENERGY. I took two capsules first thing in the morning and two before noon. After a few days, I didn’t have that washed out feeling of fatigue. I felt like a new woman. Thank you Grandma's Herbs for such greaat herbal formulas.”

          “I drive a truck for a living. Quite often, on a long haul, I get tired and it is hard to stay alert. Everyone used to use No-Doz, but now many drivers have gone to drugs. I promised myself that if I ever had to use drugs I’d quit driving. Another driver gave me some Grandma’s ENERGY and said “These aren’t drugs, they’re herbs. If you want to stay off drugs these are the best I’ve found.” I took four capsules and was awake and alert all night. The next morning I didn’t have any drug out, hung- over feeling.”
