Quick-fix solutions to drowsiness tend to have the following effects:

  • Be addictive
  • Increase the scope of the original problem, ultimately making you more of a drowsy basket-case
  • Increase the toxic load on your body leading to ?? (cancer, etc.)

Here’s a brief list of drowsy-at-work solutions I recommend against:

  • Caffeine and other quick-energy drinks and pills
  • Shocker Glasses — dumb
  • Energy Supplements – ginseng, cordyceps and ashwaganda. These don’t get to the core problem.

Again, the real problem is something is imposing a load on your system. You can’t fix that by adding something else onto the top. (Unless there is some basic nutritional element that your body isn’t getting: see the articles on veganism and vitamins.)
