What You Should Know
Dieters and consumers are overrun with marketing claims and product pushes with little to no clinical backing. There is no doubt that the body needs vitamin and other nutrients to survive, but listing these common vitamins as a way to boost energy is nothing more than a sales push. StressTabs Energy offer no stimulants and no proven energy boosters. Under the Energy tab on the ingredient label there is glutamine, taurine and carnitine with some B vitamins and iron. The company does not bother to explain why or how these ingredients will increase energy, leaving the dieter to take StressTabs on their word or choose another supplement. Based on clinical trials, green tea and caffeine are more effective at increasing energy than any of the ingredients on this list and they cost less.

The Food and Drug Administration does not evaluate supplements. If they did, the majority of supplements would be kicked off the weight loss and supplement market for false claims. Yes, vitamins are used by the body to product energy. This is not a lie, but it is a stretch of the truth. It is like saying that oxygen improves cardiovascular health. We all know we need to breathe to keep out heart pumping, but we are not running out to purchase oxygen as a supplement.
By definition, every vitamin and ingredient in StressTabs Energy is included in the proper subcategory. These ingredients are used naturally by the body to facilitate energy, cardiovascular health and cellular health, but adding more of these vitamins in supplement form will not promote better health.
The only portion of StressTabs Energy worth the time is Immune Strength. Zinc and vitamin C are commonly supplemented to reduce the chance of catching the common cold or reduce the time it takes to recover from the common cold.
Dieters looking for an all-natural means of increasing energy would be better served with a cup of 69-cent coffee. Coffee contains caffeine and caffeine increases energy for up to 12 hours. This supplement is taken once a day and the vitamins in the supplement will be pushed out of the body in just a few hours.

StressTabs is one of those companies that gives consumers the basic definition for a vitamin and tries to sell a supplement based on that definition. The company does not include clinical support proving that supplementation of the ingredients in StressTabs Energy actually increases energy. We are left with a list of ingredients commonly found in a multi-vitamin and an explanation that the ingredients will work – just try it. We suggest using a cup of coffee for energy or a proven fat burner with caffeine and green tea for weight loss support with energy.
