Low on Energy?

A common complaint these days is that people do not have enough energy. The first thing one should evaluate when regarding their energy levels is their nutrition plan. A steady diet of processed foods, sugary sweets and not nearly enough fruits and vegetables can wreak havoc on your energy output. But nutrition aside, what else can one do to promote better energy levels? There are stimulants like caffeine and ephedra, but they wear out quickly and can leave one more tired than before they took them. Are there any other supplements that can provide a “clean,” no-crash energy? Ginseng is one herbal supplement that has been used for centuries to promote energy and vitality. There are a few varieties of ginseng, each with its own benefits, but they all can help to naturally increase energy levels without the dreaded crash feeling later on. As an added benefit, certain types of ginseng can even promote a stronger immune system.

Coenzyme Q10 is another nutrient that is directly related to energy production. CoQ10 is a vital component of energy production on a cellular level, and also supports the health and function of other systems of the body. Supplementing with CoQ10 even supports healthy blood pressure and is a powerful antioxidant.

One of the most overlooked supplements when it comes to increasing energy is the B-Complex of vitamins. Each member of the B-Complex shares traits with one another, and the most common of these traits is energy production through the process of converting food to energy.

While stimulants are often the route people choose when they want to increase energy, they are a temporary fix and often leave one with a crashed feeling once they wear off, forcing the user to rely on bigger and more frequent doses. For a clean and lasting energy with no crash feelings later, supplementing with CoQ10, ginseng and the B-Complex may just have you saying “so long” to the use of stimulants.
