BOOST Sagging Energy with 5 Supplements
Have you noticed that the older you get, the less you tend to do the things you love?
Maybe you used to “cut a rug” swing dancing on Friday nights. But now you stay home to watch the latest episode of Grace and Frankie through your closed eyelids.
Or maybe you used to play tennis on Saturday mornings. But now you sip coffee while watching the morning news.
Most of the time, the root issue is the same:
You just don’t have the energy anymore.
But if you want to change that, then keep reading. Because I have some simple energy-boosting hacks that could have you swinging to the oldies again in no time.
Low energy usually comes from a lack of nutrients that GIVE you energy.
The simple fix? Give your body MORE of them!
Following are 5 of the best energy-boosting nutrients to supercharge your energy levels.
B vitamins are a good starting point because they are critical in your body’s energy production process.
But B12, in particular, forms red blood cells, which transport oxygen in your blood throughout your body. Your cells use that oxygen to produce energy.
This is why supplementing with B12 or eating B12-rich foods (such as meat, fish, milk, cheese, and eggs) has been shown to boost energy levels.
While B3 helps your body use carbohydrates and protein for energy.
And B6 helps break down glycogen, which gives you the glucose you need to fuel physical activity.
I’ve highlighted three of them here. But getting ALL the B vitamins is a good idea because they work best together.
Studies show that taking magnesium can help you feel more energized if you’re tired.
The reason why is simple. Magnesium activates ATP, the principal molecule for storing and transferring energy within your cells.
Magnesium is VITAL for restoring your energy levels. Because without enough magnesium, the nutrients you obtain from foods and supplements (like vitamin B) can’t be metabolized into energy.
Iron is another critical piece of this energy assembly line. It helps your body produce the red blood cells that shuttle oxygen to your tissues.
The primary symptoms of iron deficiency are fatigue and weakness. Iron-rich foods include red meat, pork, poultry, seafood, beans, and dark leafy green vegetables, like spinach.
Just be sure to check with your doctor before increasing your iron levels if you’re on a blood thinner.
Low levels of CoQ10 are consistently linked with fatigue.
This is because CoQ10 is present in your mitochondria (the “power plants” of your cells), where it aids in the production and transportation of energy (ATP).
The energy boost that comes from CoQ10 doesn’t just make you feel less fatigued. It also helps all of your body’s organs function at a higher level.
Vitamin D makes this list because it helps maintain hormone levels that affect your feelings.
For example, it helps sustain normal levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, which regulate your mood. Plus, it also boosts melatonin production, which allows you to sleep better at night.
And, of course, better sleep translates to better energy levels.
Maintaining adequate levels of ALL of these nutrients is necessary to keep up your energy levels.
Because, like any good team, they work together—in different ways—to bring about a winning (and ENERGIZING) result.
