Energizing Truckers and Professional Truck Drivers

If there was ever a group who occasionally needs energizing help, it is professional truck drivers who work long hours to move about 70% of the freight in the USA (and a significant percentage in other places worldwide).

Energizing, jumping, fitness, wellness.Truckers can work extraordinarily long hours.

Some drive irregular routes and have unpredictable work schedules (other than having to comply with the Hours of Service regulation).

Others may have to travel overnight, that is, during times directly opposite when their circadian rhythms tell them it is time to sleep.

Sometimes, a boost of energy can help truckers accomplish all that they need to accomplish in the course of a day or driving shift.

While there are energy drinks on the market, some of them are nothing more than chemical cocktails with high amounts of caffeine that can leave consumers jittery or worse.

Are there natural substances with energizing capability that don’t have the negative effects of caffeine?


We are not qualified to render medical advice; however, we urge truckers to seek — whenever possible — natural alternatives to prescription medications (which almost always have side effects).

Furthermore, we recommend using pure therapeutic grade essential oils for energizing capability. In fact, one of the essential oils on this page is a favorite of Mike’s, specifically for its energizing effect.

Below, we have listed (in alphabetical order) essential oils and supplements used for energizing. Each person’s needs and biochemistry may be different from someone else’s.

Also, the list below is one of several lists that we have grouped under “trucker health” in the Health and Wellness section on our site. The other lists are:

Because of their unique Seed to Seal® process and the success we have personally experienced in using them, we unapologetically recommend pure therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living for energizing.

“Need More Energy” Post Excerpt from Young Living’s Blog

“Obviously, the first step to increasing energy is a healthy diet, exercise, and adequate rest. For me, that covers about 90 percent of my time. So how do I make up the difference? Gary’s recommendation is NingXia Nitro™. NingXia Nitro is an all-natural way to increase cognitive alertness, enhance mental fitness, and support overall performance.* Its benefits are derived from a wide range of powerful cognitive enhancers, including:

  • Proprietary Nitro oil blend—Black pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, chocolate, yerba mate, spearmint, and peppermint essential oils and wolfberry seed oil
  • Proprietary Nitro energy blend—Bioenergy Ribose®, green tea extract, Korean ginseng extract, mulberry leaf extract
  • B vitamins—B12 (methylcobalamin), B3 (niacinamide), B6 (pyridoxine HCI)
  • Choline

“Gary Young synergistically combined immediate and long-term energy-supporting ingredients into a product that speeds up recovery and increases overall energy reserves. NingXia Nitro is a simple and convenient way to become more focused, support mental acuity, and enhance physical performance.*
