Most of our energy is generated by essential nutrients, which are found in the food that we eat. The greatest potential for energy production is contained within fats, with protein and carbohydrates producing half the amount. Minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients are essential for the inner workings of turning these substances into fuel.
If our daily diet is not what it should be due to busy lifestyles, or there is temporarily little time to make healthy meals, we end up running ourselves ragged, struggling to get out of bed in the mornings or feeling too tired to find the energy to do the things that we really want and need to do. A fulfilling lifestyle requires energy, and if we don’t have it, it can lead us to feeling unhappy and dissatisfied.
Micronutrients are essential for maintaining a healthy functioning body. Popular minerals and vitamins such as Zinc and Vitamin B complex and amino acids such as Tyrosine, Arginine and Carnitine. And let’s not forget the well-known enzyme CoQ10. Micronutrients support many aspects of our general health and wellbeing including energy production, mood balance, mental clarity, and nervous system support.
Herbs such as Ginseng, Green Tea and Withania can rejuvenate the body and also superfoods such as Spirulina and Maca can be easily incorporated into smoothies for some phytonutrient power.
