The most healthy thing I can add, along with the suggestions of diet, sleep and exercise would be vitamin B6.
Supplements that "really" wake you up contain ephedra such as from the Chinese herb Ma Huang. I don't know if these products are available anymore, I think they may have been banned due to risks of heart attack and strokes. It would really get you cranking. I used to take stuff called herba fuel before a workout. Work all day, come home, take some herba fuel, go train for a few hours.

I make sorbet at home with my short cup, some mixed fruit and berries, Juicy Juice, and a little bit of cheap ass Aldi's brand Mixade for flavor. Stuff it, pop it on the Magic Bullet, and blend. Instantaneous energy. www.buythebullet.com

Yeah, B complex is great. B6 specifically for energy. I read about a Canadian study years ago that said people who take a B complex are less likely to get bitten by mosquitoes.
What's the healthiest B Complex? My guess is Brewer's yeast. But that stuff is nastle.

In days of yore I was a fan of Ephedra ... Long since banned
I keep a box of these http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/ergo/amp.html on the shelf now for those days i just feel like I can't
A little sweaty, but good and they do make it through customs here in Ireland (They opened them last time & passed them)

I just ran 5 miles, rehydrated, ate an orange and a multivitamin, and am now drinking a 16 oz. low carb Monster energy drink. I'm pretty sure you could hit me in the face with a sledgehammer right now and it would just bounce off.
