A lot of people wake up and feel exhausted before they even get out of bed. A lot of people then turn to caffeine or sugar to get you through their day. If you can relate, take some time and think about your nutrition on a day-to-day basis because you might not be getting to the root cause of your exhaustion. It’s not normal to be tired all the time and this can be a sign that your body is worn down and needs more support. When you understand how nutrients affect your energy levels (mentally and physically), you can learn how to re-balance your body and get back the energy you deserve!
In order for our bodies to function efficiently and become more balanced, we cannot undermine key nutrients such as: vitamins, minerals, amino acids and healthy fats. Keep in mind that higher levels of stress over time can place even more demand on nutrient stores and increase deficiencies. During times of high stress, our body works through nutrients at a higher rate, so if your reserves and energy levels are already running on empty, you’re at a disadvantage.
A powerful approach is to focus on what your deficiencies might be. There are at-home lab tests that can help identify the best support you need to get you feeling energized. Many of these nutrients are essential, meaning our bodies cannot produce them on our own. The below are key nutrients that support the adrenal glands and can improve your energy levels.
B Vitamins, Coenzyme Q10, Zinc, Vitamin C, Biotin, Glutamine, Magnesium, Calcium
Keep in mind that mental health is just as important when it comes to having good energy and a healthy lifestyle. Give your body the support it needs through incorporating 4% (1 hour a day) of consistent and healthy lifestyle changes.
