Beat fatigue with dietary supplements

Are you feeling drained from your action-packed day? Your health seems fine and you’re not sick either, but you just need a boost, so you reach for a steaming cup of delicious, milky latte. It keeps you going for a few hours and then you need, yet another cup. Isn’t that frustrating?

Caffeine is an easy source of instant energy but it tends to be short-lived and you need more to replenish. The downside of caffeine is you may feel more awake, but after a certain threshold, your hands start to shake a little and your heart beats just a little too fast for comfort. You could also feel more anxious than necessary.

There are several ways to feeling more alert — more sleep, less alcohol before bedtime, and regular exercise.

But if you feel you want one more bit of arsenal in your multi-pronged approach to zapping fatigue, dietary supplements could just give you that extra edge you’re looking for.

B vitamins
What gives you the most energy from this suite of vitamins are folic acid and vitamin B12. In AIDS/HIV research studies, it has been found that these two crucial components in B vitamins help patients to deal with oft-overwhelming fatigue.

Brewed by the Chinese and Koreans in soups and tea, this traditional Asian herb is gaining popularity in Western countries as a supplement for boosting immune health, reducing fatigue and stress. Panax ginseng has been found to improve immune function in those with chronic fatigue and even AIDS. Siberian ginseng, which is another variety, is found to be less effective.

Royal jelly
The food that queen bees eat to keep themselves nourished in the beehive contains B vitamins and vitamins A, C, D, E and K, 18 amino acids, including collagen and lecithin. Royal Jelly is an effective hormonal stimulant, which aids metabolic functions and enhances general energy and well being, and is taken widely to counter fatigue and stress. Studies also show that this natural supplement can protect the liver from infection and disease.

Green tea extract
This Japanese staple already has great reviews in staving off cancer and promoting longevity, so it comes to no surprise that a recent scientific study has proven that green tea compound EGCG can counteract fatigue. How it works is EGCG works to reduce oxidative stress on the liver — it seems that chronic fatigue is closely associated with liver damage.

Coenzyme Q10
As one of the most exciting discoveries in the 20th century, Coenzyme Q10 plays a crucial role in producing energy and protecting heart health. Coenzyme Q10 occurs naturally in every cell and is essential in supporting numerous metabolic functions. Studies have shown that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation can boost depleted cells and enhance cellular energy production.
