Too much caffeine will cause you to lose sleep and feel more tired.
Mr Nolan-Neylan said: “Green tea doesn’t contain as much caffeine as coffee.
“However, it does have enough to make it effective in reducing fatigue and increasing alertness, thanks to the presence of an amino acid known as L-theanine.
“Not only will green tea lower levels of stress, but it can also help to improve sleep quality which is essential to getting a good start to your day.”
Ginseng is a slow-growing plant and one of the most popular herbal remedies.
Ginseng products are more than just trendy, they’re proven to increase energy.
Mr Nolan-Neylan said: “Ginseng is believed to enhance your wellbeing and has been shown to help fight fatigue and boost energy levels.
“As an adaptogen, it supports and balances the stress hormones, neurotransmitters and other chemicals your body produces; it helps to boost your energy when you are feeling drained, and can also help you to calm down when you are finding it difficult to relax.”
