Default Difference between Yeast Energizer & Yeast Nutrient?

Greetings!

Is there a real difference between yeast energizer and yeast nutrient?

The last time I brewed, I actually used both.

The beer came out great - but I'm not entirely sure if both were really necessary.

I believe the yeast energizer contains everything the nutrient has, plus extra stuff (vitamins n' junk).

I use both, but I've been wondering if I could just use the energizer...
