Well tell me how someone can drink two Monsters in 15 minutes and be taking a nap an hour later.
    Lol oh well that must be adrenal fatigue... No other explanation..

Why not just switch products or stimulant types?. Wouldn't this accomplish the same thing?. I mean I'm a lifelong coffee drinker. I don't cycle my coffee or take a break and start drinking decaf. Really I don't know any lifelong coffee drinker that does such a thing. The thought of it is absolutely ludicrous. Please put this "Stimulant Break" THEORY to bed, or prove that it absolutely without a doubt is necessary for continued health. Somehow I doubt that your adrenal glands can actually be "burned out".

    This is the best answer. So people are not feeling symptoms that are not there they are simply due to reasons other then the supposed "adrenal fatigue."

    Yes I thinks its safe. Nothing wrong with coffee daily. Some might even say it's beneficial. I don't know about NO Explode though...People still actually use that stuff?
