I do hear you, peter, because I've been there done that. I got so sleep deprived that I developed arrhythmia. In your spot, I'd prioritize sleep first even if I had to sacrifice elsewhere.

Nance, that's great that you feel so good. Personally, I work 45 hours a week, and spend 10-15 hours working on my masters. I feel drained a lot, and could use an energy boost. I eat very good, but mental exhaustion can also play a part.

I used to take ginseng for energy :) Too much would make me really hyper though.

Our family friend , who is from Malaysia (well, she's Chinese-Malaysian) used to say it was really good for medicinal purposes and would always try to buy a lot to send back home.

It's a good one. Don't take it too late in the day, or on an empty stomach. I drink a tea of it, personally. All adaptogens are energizing, but also give great adrenal support over time.

I just started using a concentrated form of ginseng from a bottle that my mother bought in Korea. You put a gram of it in warm water and mix. Very bitter. I was suffering from terrible jetlag and a cold and was hitting a wall of fatigue that wasn't going away. I started to notice an improvement in my energy after a day and a half and by the 3rd day I couldn't believe how much better I was feeling. So, yes, I would recommend ginseng for energy and endurance.

If you're feeling low energy, my first thought would be that you haven't found the right mix/timing of foods yet and I hope you find them soon; if your energy is good and you're just checking out energy options go for it.

I say that because I feel so good I can't stand myself and if I had more energy I would probably ask for a tranquilizer. Since I am 64 and still fat though losing weight gradually, it's hard to imagine anyone who is succeeding on primal/paleo needing to take anything for energy. Just saying. in past years, I was an endurance athlete on weekends and found that the more I did the more energy I had.

It has been a lifesaver for me before. I don't know if it would take you from feeling normal to extra energized, but when I've struggled with fatigue, particularly hormone related, Eleuthero Ginseng extract has been fabulous. I believe you are supposed to take a break of at least a week after 3 weeks of continued use, and it can take 5-7 days to feel the benefits.

I take all American ginseng or a more focused and less hyper feeling - just long lasting endurance. American ginseng is the way to go, but often a little pricier.

I started mixing it with raw chocolate and unrefined coconut palm sugar a couple years ago. It's the perfect fuel. www.perfectfuel.com I just started selling it a few months ago - I call it the chocolate for the active lifestyle. You can use the promo code NCT2012 for 10% discount on all orders - free shipping over 3 pouches of fuels.

Please let me know what you think - I'm just getting started and would love your feedback.

Just tried p-boost after reading some reviews about it. Worked good but pretty pricey. The trial was free but you have to pay for the shipping which was quick. Anyone know any coupon codes for p-boost.com?
