Which energy supplements do you recommend?

Hi all

I've been suffering from extreme tiredness recently and I was wondering if everyone could recommend a particular energy supplement?

I have a permanent Ileostomy caused by Crohn's combined with a borderline short bowel syndrome.To treat the Crohn's I take Infliximab every 8 weeks. I am also going to ask my GP for a B12 and Iron blood test form.

Many thanks everyone.

B12 and iron helped me too. I'm also taking 3/4 of a teaspoon of turmeric along with a couple of pinches of black pepper and a slice of ginger 1/8'' thick by 1'' around blended into my smoothies. The turmeric is absorbed something in the neighborhood of 200x better when taken with black pepper and ginger. The turmeric has made me feel quite a bit better, more energy, less pain etc.
