Supported energy levels
We all encounter those days where the world seems a bit greyer, energy levels dip, and motivation takes a backseat. We understand the importance of nourishing the importance of nourishing your body and mind, especially when you need an extra boost. Please see below a few supplements we would recommend to help combat feelings of fatigue and deliver energy support.
Dive into the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids, known for their cognitive and mood supporting properties. These supplements can provide the support your brain needs to navigate through the lows, helping you feel sharper and more focused.
Ashwagandha (withania somnifera) is a general tonic that improves the body's resistance to stress and contributes to emotional balance and general wellbeing, something that is in high demand in January.
When fatigue sets in, it could be a sign of a deficiency in key B vitamins. Our B Complex supplement can be the missing link to replenishing your vitality and banishing that persistent feeling of tiredness.
Magnesium is an essential mineral for reducing tiredness and fatigue, supporting energy production, and normal nervous and psychological function. All these things can help during cold January Mondays.
The gut-brain connection is a subject that has been explored at length in medical research of late, with the link between gut health and cognitive health becoming more widely accepted. Probiotic supplements are one way of supporting your digestive health, which can in turn support your mood and brain health. A healthy gut contributes to normal mood, promoting overall wellbeing.
Experience the power of the so-called sunshine vitamin when the skies are overcast. Our Vitamin D3 and K2 supplement not only supports immune health but also contributes to a normal mood, making it an ideal companion for those gloomy Mondays.
The adrenal glands are vitally important as they play a role in stress management. Our Adrenalmax contains a number of different ingredients to help support the adrenal glands in fighting against things such as everyday stress, poor sleep, diet, and nutrition that can make us feel overwhelmed or exhausted.
Acetyl CoA Support Formula
ACoA Support Formula is a superior formula incorporating all the ingredients needed in the production of Acetyl CoA. Acetyl CoA enters the citric acid cycle. In this cycle, acetyl-CoA undergoes a series of chemical reactions, ultimately releasing carbon dioxide and generating energy-rich molecules such as NADH. These energy carriers play a vital role in the process of oxidative phosphorylation, leading the production of ATP, the cells' primary energy currency.
Tips for improving mood
Improving mood and energy levels often involves a combination of lifestyle changes, healthy habits and positive mindset adjustments. Here are some tips that may help enhance your mood and boost your energy:
Engage in regular physical activity. Exercise has been shown to release endorphins, the body’s natural mood lifters. It also contributes to energy support and overall well-being
Ensure you get enough quality sleep. Lack of sleep can negatively impact mood and energy levels. Establish a consistent sleep routine and create an environment that supports sleep.
Stay hydrated by drinking enough water throughout the day. Dehydration can lead to feelings of fatigue and a decline in cognitive function.
Mindfulness and relaxation techniques
Practice mindfulness meditation, deep breathing exercises or yoga. These techniques can help reduce stress, promote relaxation and improve your overall mood.
Maintain positive social connections. Spending time with friends and loved ones can provide emotional support and contribute to a more positive mood.
Limit caffeine and sugar
Be mindful of your caffeine and sugar intake. While these can provide a quick energy boost, excessive consumption may lead to a series of mood spikes and crashes; negatively impacting mood in the long run.
Engage in activities you enjoy
Make time for hobbies and activities that bring you joy. Engaging in activities you love can have a positive impact on your mood and overall sense of well-being.
Limit screen time
Reduce excessive screen time, especially before bedtime. The blue light emitted by screens can interfere with sleep patterns.
