Many of us feel tired and sluggish throughout the day, and try to boost our energy with coffee, energy drinks, or mid-day naps. But these have negative side effects, so why not work on getting your energy back in a long-lasting and natural way?
Your cortisol levels affect your mood, stress, weight, and - you guessed it - energy levels. Depending on the stress levels you're feeling, your cortisol levels could be putting in overtime. This directly affects your energy levels. Here's what we suggest:
VITAMIN B, PLEASE!
Vitamin B helps your body produce healthy red blood cells. Your red blood cells are what helps your metabolism and overall brain function. They also turn your food into energy, so it is imperative that you get the proper amount of Vitamin B. Simply up your intake of nuts, leafy greens, and fish.
VITAMIN B UP, SUGAR DOWN.
While you shouldn't completely deny your sweet tooth, keep in mind that sugar does not provide your body with much nutritional value. Sugar actually sucks up the Vitamin B in your body, which will leave you feeling more tired than before. We recommend cutting back on sugar, but avoid switching to an artificial sweetener. Most artificial sweeteners contain aspartame, which is mostly chlorinated sugar that creates inflammation.
