Fight fatigue and boost your metabolism
Posted on August 03 2018
Whether you’re getting ready to seize the day, or attempting to power through a long afternoon, it’s safe to say we all need a boost sometimes. Certain supplements can help increase energy levels and keep tiredness at bay, keeping us in tip top condition. If you’re feeling fatigued, it may be down to not consuming enough B Vitamins in your diet, so taking a supplement might go a long way in improving your energy levels.
B vitamins are essential for a fully functioning metabolism and have a massive impact on your energy. Our B Complex is a mixture of the eight essential B vitamins and each tablet contains 100% of your RDA for Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Biotin and Folic Acid. Taking our B Complex ensures you’re getting the support needed for the various processes in your body that rely on B Vitamins. These include helping to release the energy from food we eat, supporting the normal function of the heart and maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails.
Vitamin B12 is important for the proper function of the nervous system and plays a key role in blood cell formation. Taking one tablet every morning can keep you energised and for an extra boost we recommend taking it along with our B-Complex to optimise energy production and your metabolism. If you’ve been feeling less than your best lately, it could be that you’re lacking in B12, so the benefits of taking a supplement could be the boost you need.
We often turn to caffeine and other stimulants to try and stay awake when feeling fatigued or sluggish, but these can’t solve the problem if your tiredness stems from a lack of vitamins. Not only does a lack of B12 often result in weariness, it can also lead to poor concentration, impaired memory, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. As a vitamin, it can’t be created or replenished by the body, so food or supplements are the only way the body can receive it. Some diets inherently lack B12, so strict vegetarians, vegans or those who follow a plant-based diet are at higher risk of B12 deficiency.
While some people don’t consume enough vitamin B12, others can’t absorb enough of the vitamin even though their diet might contain it. Certain digestive issues and age can reduce our ability to absorb B12 from the food we eat, making a supplement a more practical option to provide our bodies with what they need.
It’s important to keep our energy levels at their best to ensure we don’t suffer from the effects of tiredness. Not getting enough B12 can make it difficult for our bodies to release energy, leaving us feeling exhausted. Taking B vitamins can ensure you don’t end up feeling this way, as your body will function effectively and efficiently. All the B vitamins are important individually, but some of them also work in teams or partnerships. That’s why it’s so crucial to get a good balance of them all.
