Over a thousand companies produce or manufacture dietary supplements in the United States today. More than 85% of the brands on the market are made by small, contract manufacturers. They put pretty labels on bottles and sell them to big box stores, warehouse clubs and other companies that sell—but do not make or test—their own products. These sellers are not responsible for their quality. As a result, a lot of poor- quality products are on the market.

Many of us complain that our days are filled with excessive demands to work more, yet we don’t have enough energy to meet those demands. For this reason, many people are searching for natural “fuel” that will solve this energy crisis. We seek energy boosters to give us mental alertness, the ability to stay awake and one that will help us acquire the physical and mental stamina to address and complete the job at hand.
Many consumers like immediate energy boosters such as Red Bull and related, highly caffeinated products, but a large contingent also feel that these caffeinated drinks are not healthful. In reality, caffeine, a major ingredient in energy-boosting drinks, is not as bad as some make it out to be. Like any supplement ingredient, caffeine can cause negative, harmful effects in certain sensitive individuals and/or when excessive amounts are consumed. But in moderation, caffeine can improve physical performance and significantly enhance the mental performance parameters of concentration and memory. A large portion of our population desires greater energy, but caffeine can make certain individuals feel nauseated or jittery.
