Each day we face a myriad of tasks both at home and at work. Hectic schedules demand adequate energy levels for successful completion of necessary activities. Yet many people find themselves plagued with low energy levels and even chronic fatigue. To compensate for lack of energy many turn to caffeine in coffee and soft drinks or to increasingly popular energy drinks.
Any number of causes may be at the root of low energy. The cause of fatigue may be something as simple as being thirsty. Inadequate liquid intake can cause you to feel sluggish and low in energy. Not eating regular meals including skipping breakfast can cause blood sugar levels to drop and fatigue to result. What you eat may also be to blame. White bread, cookies, or pasta cause a blood sugar spike which quickly wears off. Instead eat complex carbs which leave the system more slowly and provide sustained energy.
Stress and anxiety can also deplete energy levels. If you find your life full of stress, seek stress relief through exercise, a change of scenery, or a few moments of quiet meditation. Natural supplements like valerian, skullcap, or hops can provide mild relaxing effects. Ultimately stress can lead to other health problems and must be dealt with. Medications, diabetes, or thyroid problems can also contribute to chronic fatigue. If you are unsure of the cause seek a doctor’s advice and evaluation.
Poor nutrition may also result in low energy levels. For example, women are often deficient in magnesium, a key nutrient for energy. A good, broad-spectrum multivitamin may also prove beneficial to those needing to increase energy. Omega-3 fatty acids help regulate metabolism and boost oxygen intake thus increasing energy. Fish products are a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids. There are other natural supplements useful for increasing energy levels. Bee pollen has been popular for centuries and many individuals find great benefit from sublingual vitamin B12. Placed under the tongue, vitamin B 12 can give a boost of energy quickly. Ginseng has also been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. The most popular forms are Panax Ginseng (also known as Korean Ginseng) and American Ginseng. Ginseng is purported to have anti-fatigue and anti-stress actions.
