Defining Energy for a New Millennium
Journal Article 1/1/2001
This supplement, published in Nutrition Reviews (2001;59 Pt 2:S1–S39), addresses the question as to what "energy" means to the scientific community, the consumer public, and policymakers, and attempts to identify the scientific foundation for energy claims. A series of articles explores the scientific basis and evidence for linking food components to physical and mental energy.
Sensitivity to Change in Cognitive Performance and Mood Measures of Energy and Fatigue in Response to Morning Caffeine Alone or in Combination with Carbohydrate
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This double-blind, placebo-controlled, within-subjects (N=17) experiment compared the sensitivity to change of the cognitive performance and mood measures of mental energy following consumption of either a moderate does of caffeine (200 mg), a small amount of carbohydrate (50 g white bread), or both. The findings are published in the International Journal of Neuroscience (2009;119:1239–1258).
