Energy Boosters

We all need energy.  Fighting fatigue is half the battle.  So we need powerful weapons in our arsenal!

B Vitamins

The B vitamins are directly linked to energy. According to Psychology Today, B-vitamin deficiencies can lead to "fatigue, irritability, poor concentration, anxiety and depression." It further says that B-complex vitamins, which include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B6, pantothenic acid, biotin, B12, folate and choline, are linked to crucial functions such as neurotransmitter production, metabolism and blood cell production. Getting enough B vitamins protects you against physical and mood-related ailments that can sap your energy. B vitamins are commonly added to bread and cereal products, but vegans, in particular, need to take B12 supplements, because it naturally occurs mainly in animal products.


Vitamin D

A Wake Forest University School of Medicine study shows a correlation between adequate vitamin D intake and physical performance. The research, conducted on a group of older adults who are more at risk for vitamin D deficiencies because of lower sun exposure and the fact their skin is less efficient at producing vitamin D, compared to young people, showed that physical performance and grip strength were about 5 to 10 percent higher in adults with higher levels of vitamin D.


Vitamin C

Vitamin C is important for energy because of its role in the growth and repair of body tissues, according to Medline Plus, an information service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Your body needs vitamin C to make collagen. According to Medline Plus, collagen is "an important protein used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is essential for the healing of wounds, and for the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth." Without adequate vitamin C, you risk feeling run-down and unwell because your body is not healing and growing normally.


Ginseng is another great energy booster. Panax ginseng is the type that provides the greatest energy, although it is often thought that all types of ginseng provide energy support. It has multiple other benefits that have been discovered as well, although energy enhancement is still what it is primarily known and used for.
There are other health benefits that may be enjoyed from the use of panax ginseng that should not be overlooked. Early studies have shown it may benefit cognitive abilities such as memory and focus, and it has even been studied for its reported blood sugar stabilizing abilities.
Different types of ginseng, including panax, are also known to have antioxidant properties in the human body and may also boost your immune system.
