Here's one short story about the two products (I've added the underlining):

It is important to remember that Yeast Energizers and Yeast Nutrients are not the same thing.
Although Yeast Energizers are types of nutrient blends, they also contain components such as vitamin B, diammonium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, magnesium sulphate, and yeast hulls. Yeast energizers are particularly useful to restart a stuck fermentation, as it allows yeast populations to increase in a brew or wine which likely has been depleted of these components due to an earlier yeast population growth. The additional components included in Yeast Energizers are most effective when added 24 hours or more after pitching.
Yeast Nutrients provide nitrogen and ammonium phosphate to the yeast. The nitrogen is used for amino acid generation, while phosphate contributes towards various energetic requirements for the yeast. You'll find urea is sometimes included as a source of nitrogen but not phosphorous. Yeast Nutrients are usually added the yeast prior to pitching.

good articles Scooter68. I like to tell people that yeast nutrient is the vitamins you take and the yeast energizer is the Red Bull you drink to keep going.

Like that description ! Very Fitting!

I think my Zinfandel needs a little "Red Bull" it's moving so slow compared to the Blush Zin started exact same time. Both from same source prepped the same way. Well, at least it's not totally stalled. Hope to be able to move both to seconday today. Blush Zin was at 1.003 last night while the Zin was at 1.022. Going to declare both ready for the Carboy move today.
