  • Stay Alert!

    Been seeing those adverts everywhere. Ranging from orange efferversence tablets to colourful pills; anyone took those supplements claiming to help you stay alert and focused yet?

    I'm really having trouble concentrating and staying AWAKE in classes, I really don't want to OD on caffeine too, so I was wondering if these supplements would be a better choice?

    Any recs for brands? TIA!

    Chicken BRANDS essence keeps me stay alert most of the time during examination periods.

    How about Benedict DOM?

    I remembered an ex-colleague who bought peppermint essential oil for me to try. It helps to keep me awake at times when I almost fell asleep in the office.

    Also, my MIL once made a cup of honey for me to try. I don't know what brand it is but it costs a hundred plus dollars and more.

    Do let me know if you find one that works.

          IIRC, Blackmores has an "Executive B" supplement which helps to keep one more alert. Can check out at Guardian.

            Ooohh, Gingko? Does it come in a capsule form or?

            My mom says Manuka honey is good, but apparently it doesn't work specifically to concentration.

            'Executive B'! Hmmmm, never heard of that one, is that like Vit B complex?

                I read before in a health magazine that having an apple in the morning is actually more effective in helping you stay awake than drinking a cup of coffee!

                      Sorry for my late reply...

                      yep, Executive B consists of mostly Vit B which helps to fight stress & maintain alertless. But it is heaty though ~ got to drink lots of water if u are taking that.

                          suck 1-2 thin slices of raw ginseng like a sweet.

                          or keep snacking! It works for me.

                            I rarely had time to drink water when I am working. So Executive B is out.

                              Pills to keep you AWAKE!

                              Hi, can anyone recommend any pills to take/buy to keep oneself from dozing off/napping/sleeping in the day? My work is affected during the day. Pls don't ask me to sleep more in the night as I would love to if possible.
