    depends on the reason ur avoiding caffeine. but i would say get some adaptogen type herb or if you *really* wanna stay alert low dose geranium, but i assume u wana stay away from anything that will keep you up at night. i think most energy drinks will have caffeine or guarana which is basically the same thing(i think?)

    ya, i would say go with some adaptogens, then. rhodiola rosea seems to be pretty popular. nutra has some caps by the brand NOW. 60 caps for $8. 2 or 3 caps before class would probably work for you and be a lot cheaper than buying drinks. it has other benefits too. theres some other adaptogens that work well too but i cant remember the names

    Rhodolia (day) and ashghanwana (at night).

    "Mind, Body Spirit" is an excellent brand of Rhodiola by some margin

    An ALCAR "tea" is strong stim free energy.

    Really though I feel that there are too many "noot" questions on this board for study rather than gym and getting gains.

    Creatine would also be a nice addition.

    Well, I already have my big tub of mono, and this isn't even for athletic performance/ It's actually to stay awake during a night class, when I might be a little exhausted from my workout during the day.

    No alcar for me. Small doses make me angry and large ones make me tired, almost drugged.

    do you take choline with alcar? if not that can make a person feel tired if you are not getting enough though dietary means

    Its a good point. This certainly happens with piracetam usage if you get the balance wrong it can go wrong - allegedly very badly in some people.

    ALCAR is potent stuff - well worth checking choline against it.

    Some people smell "fishy" when over doing the AlCar.

    Def. one of my staples on a cut though. Very underrated.
