If you are like most people you can always use some extra energy to get through the day. In fact, there is a huge industry out there that promises to give you all the energy you can handle. From Rockstar to Xenergy, from Yellowjackets to 5-Hour Energy, everyone seems to have the answer.
I was covering a show a few months ago and there was an energy drink sponsoring the event. They handed out some bottles of the drink to the media. It was cold and tasted decent so I gladly accepted. A few minutes later I was sweating and my body was tingling. It gave me energy but it wasn’t the kind of energy I wanted to feel.
