This is just one of many products my husband and I have tried on our trek to find HIM the most effective yet natural energy aid. We decided to try this one for a number of reasons the first one being that it was on sale when we placed an order for some other supplements online.
This “Fatigued to Fantastic” Daily Energy B Complex states that their formula is helpful in “supporting endurance and energy, and helping maintain mental alertness when experiencing fatigue.” This of course sounded good and like it would be helpful for my husband. He gets REALLY …spacey and kind of brain dead at the end of his work day.
I was hoping this would help some! I cannot begin to tell you how mentally fatigued he is when he gets home from work.
This supplement was Designed with a recognized fatigue expert( Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D.), and author of 'From Fatigued to Fantastic' and 'Three Steps to Happiness'.
( I have not read these) We did find that info interesting and it did make this supplement even more attractive to us.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT B VITAMINS
B vitamins all play a key role in several bodily functions, such as protein, fat, carbohydrate, and mitochondrial energy metabolism; maintenance of the liver, skin, hair, mouth, and eyes; plus so much more.
This is basically what the bottle says about B vitamins and of course their formula!
“B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished daily for your body to operate at its peak energy potential.” Your body will tend to use up these B vitamins more rapidly when under stress which is why it is so important to replenish your bodies supply daily.
They also state on the bottle that this Daily Energy B Complex contains high levels of
B12 as well as other B vitamins that are essential for sustained energy and also important for healthy blood, brain and nerve cell function.

WHEN I USED IT
I am most definitely in love with another B complex but I ran out of mine and it is actually harder to find it so I tried this one. I found that I like my regular B complex better as far as getting help with physical energy. This one worked well, but I must tell you that I don’t suffer from mental or physical FATIGUE…maybe when my son was first born but, that was a little while ago and I just with in the last 2 weeks tried this.I use these kinds of B Complex supplements as a maintenance rather than a “fix it” So I can’t tell you that I felt any difference. What I can say is that at least I’m getting those B vitamins! But I will be going back to my regular brand. I took these for about 1 week.
My husband and I also take an awesome multivitamin/whole food energizer (Natures Way Alive ) that we feel does wonders in the energy department. We were hoping that this Daily B Complex would add to / enhance things for HIM more than for me…his body and brain is under a lot more stress than mine!!
WHEN MY HUSBAND USED IT
He, being just as impatient as I am was expecting instant results. This is NOT that kind of product. It took about 3-5 days of taking Enzymatic Therapies Daily Energy B Complex for my husband to feel a difference. I think this is very common ( at least in my experience) when taking vitamins/supplements, especially the ones that are energy helpers.
My husband DID notice a difference after about a week. The physical energy side of things he says, he has not noticed ...the mental side of things he says is much more noticeable for him. He says that he is much better able to focus and his head is much clearer after work even though he is still very tired ..he does not feel so much like a zombie anymore. He still takes them, it’s been about 2 weeks total. I HAVE NOTICED that he IS much more able to focus when I am talking to him when he gets home from work…before I was lucky if he could get one sentence because he was so drained!
PRICE AND WHERE TO FIND IT
We ordered this online with Vitapal. It was on sale for $4.99 for a bottle of 30 V-caps.
I haven’t tried to find it in a store so I’m not really sure of exactly which stores would have it.I would imagine that natural food markets that carry supplements are a pretty safe bet.
We both really liked that you only have to take 1 pill a day. It is a decent sized, easy to swallow capsule.
Yes…even though we are not planning on buying this again, my husband has gotten decent results so we feel it would be worth a try for someone looking to relieve some of their fatigue (mental). I am giving this supplement a 4 star rating because We feel that it did provide “above average”results for my husband.
