5 Energy Boosting Nutrients, Herbs, and Adaptogens
Fatigue can wreak havoc on your daily routine.
A constant lack of energy can be due to many factors such as stress, lack of sleep, an unbalanced diet, an overworked immune system, and more. Do any of these sound familiar?
Having too little energy regularly can interfere with your ability to be present and excited to live your best life. Instead of reaching for a cup of coffee, energy drink, or a sugary snack – which only momentarily spikes your energy to only crash harder later – find high-quality sustainable energy support by focusing on research-backed, energy-boosting nutrients, herbs, and adaptogens.
Methylated Vitamin B12
All eight B vitamins are necessary for naturally optimizing your energy levels. They are not energy-yielding nutrients but instead support the body in producing energy.
Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, is specifically known for balancing energy levels. The active methylated form of vitamin B12, or methylcobalamin, is more easily absorbed into the body. This vitamin helps convert food into simple sugars – like glucose – that can then be utilized for energy production.
Vitamin B12 also aids in red blood cell production, which assists in the delivery of oxygen throughout the body – a critical ingredient for breaking down glucose to produce energy.
Vitamin D supports a healthy immune system and stabilizes stress levels, which is why fatigue is one of the most common side effects of low vitamin D levels.
So if you’re having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, a lack of vitamin D could be the culprit.
Our non-GMO Vita•Min•Balance™ for Women and Vita•Min•Vitality™ for Men both contain 800 IU of vitamin D3 per serving – a highly absorbable form of vitamin D. And what’s even better than meeting your daily requirements of vitamin D with a single supplement? The fact that our vitamin D is vegan, sustainably derived from algae!
Zinc is essential for developing and supporting a healthy central nervous system (CNS). The CNS controls many vital body functions, including maintaining balanced energy levels by communicating to cells when sugar needs to be processed into energy. Zinc plays in the formation and function of various proteins, enzymes, hormones, and beyond to keep the body running in top shape.
Men also need to consume more zinc per day, 11 milligrams compared to 8 milligrams for women, in order to maintain testosterone production and prostate health. That’s why we added extra zinc into Vita•Min•Vitality™ for Men.
Iron is a vital component of red blood cells. It binds to oxygen so it can be carried to other cells throughout the body to be used in the energy production process. Low iron levels can result in a lack of mental and physical energy and various symptoms ranging from poor focus to increased irritability, chronic tiredness, and weakness.
For women between the ages of 19 to 50 years, a much higher daily iron intake is required due to monthly menstrual blood loss, as compared to men or to women who have reached menopause. To maintain adequate iron levels, it is recommended that women from this age group get 18 milligrams of iron per day.
By design, you can get half your daily recommended amount of iron in a daily dose of Vita•Min•Balance™ for Women, with the remainder coming from your diet!
Energy-Boosting Herbs & Adaptogens
Organic energy-boosting herbs are a goldmine when it comes to naturally beating daily drowsiness and stress. Some of the most effective herbs for supporting energy levels are ashwagandha root, maca root, and holy basil leaf.
These herbs are also classified as adaptogens and contain several antioxidant micronutrients – including vitamins A, C, and E, selenium, and copper – that allow them to help maintain a healthy inflammatory response and prevent oxidative tissue damage caused by free radicals.
Vita•Min•Balance™ for Women and Vita•Min•Vitality™ for Men provide a unique mix of high-quality herbs and adaptogens plus all your vitamins and minerals – making them a super easy way to get an energy boost with your daily multivitamin!
