We live in a world that never stops, there is a constant hum of activity all around us, so it is no surprise that many of us fin our energy levels flagging. There can be lots of reasons for this and if it is an ongoing problem you should speak to your doctor about it, but there are lots of ways that you can boost your energy with vitamins and other supplements.
Whilst Q10 isn’t a vitamin, it does act like one and is responsible for around 95% of the bodies output of energy, controlling how much is made in each cell. Q10 is received through our diet but the body does produce it also, however once we reach 25 years old, our ability to do it starts to decrease.
Of course we need energy to do anything so Q10 is very important!
Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold is available from Pharma Nord, it is a daily supplement of 1-2 capsules per day containing Q10. (From €27.95)
B Vitamins are important as they are what enable us to unlock the energy that is stored inside our food. This in turn is what allows us to grow properly and have healthy functioning nerves and muscles.
Centrum provide an all in one multi-vitamin tablet. Whilst it contains all vitamins from ‘A – Zinc’ it does contain B Vitamins, helping you unlock all of that stored up energy.
One tablet per day is all you need. Available online via Centrum from £10.00.
A deficiency of Vitamin C can lead to many problems, but it is important for our immune system to function properly, if it doesn’t our bodies struggle to fight of infections and viruses, meaning we are expending more energy trying to defeat colds and bugs and less on daily life.
Emergen-C is not a tablet or capsule, in fact it is a powder that you mix with water to create a delicious drink. Coming in three flavours – Super Orange, Zingy Lemon and Juicy Strawberry, you can pick up a box of sachets at Boots from just £4.99.
This is actually an algae and when we have Chlorella in our systems it does amazing things. There is a process called chelating which binds nasty heavy metals in our immune system to agents like chlorophyll and removes them, making our immune system function better.
It also is high in magnesium which aids the conversion of blood sugars into energy!
Sun Chlorella produce tablets that allow you to get chlorella into your system and get to work.
