Agree with Alpinist too. I can always depend on it not being psychological.

there is no equivalent for adequate sleep, good hydration, and above all, getting enough vitamins and minerals in your diet by eating healthy.
please note that all of the supplements in those drinks have been listed as "safe" because supposedly the body can handle ANY level of these.
REALITY: there is no real data on the effects of high concentrations of taurine, B12, et al, and no one really knows how safe they are.
what we do know is that even the vitamin that was said to be safe at ANY level, Vit C, has been found to be harmful when taken too aggressively.
i'd vote for moderation in all things, personally (and training your butt off, and eating more green, leafy veggies, and avoiding fatty llama steaks....just wanted to see if anyone was still paying attention to my sermon here)

I did actually meet a gorgeous Bavarian Wench like the one in the foreground on the summit of a Bavarian Mountain once. On top of the Kramerspitz.
That was the day I joined the mile high club!
But I had been taking lots of ISO drink on my way to the peak.
