Many reasons can cause a feeling of low energy, fatigue, tiredness, exhaustion. Even though this is a common problem, it doesn’t mean you should accept it.

THE FIRST THING TO DO IS TO TRY AND IDENTIFY THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM

  1. Are you eating a healthy, balanced diet? Or you might be missing in your diet some of the nutritional factors.
  2. It is an excellent idea to do a blood test, check for Iron, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D and your thyroid function.
  3. See your GP so they can confirm or rule out a medical condition that could be causing your exhaustion.
  4. Are you having a restful night’s sleep? Or you don’t have enough hours to sleep (the recommended amount for healthy adults is an average of 8 hours and not less than 6 hours).
  5. Do you keep a lifestyle that includes exercise and maintaining a healthy weight?

THE NATURAL APPROACH TO SUPPORT YOUR ENERGY LEVELS

You can make a big difference to your energy levels with the right dietary and lifestyle changes and some nutritional supplements to give a boost back to your abundant energy.

**When you take a nutritional supplement, always consult a qualified health practitioner to adjust the right supplement and the duration of taking the supplement.**

COENZYME CoQ10

CoQ10 is a cofactor for the synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer).

There is a small amount of CoQ10 in the food, but our body makes the vast majority.

There are some cases that people will be low in this nutrient; for example, when using statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs) or the supplement red yeast rice it may lower amounts of CoQ10 in the body.

A common side effect of statin drugs is tiredness.

Age-related oxidative stress can also lower the amounts of CoQ10 in the body.

In these cases, taking daily CoQ10 with food can support energy levels.

Magnesium found in green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains.

Another great way to absorb magnesium is by taking a bath with Epsom salts/ magnesium flakes.
