Tired of fatigue zapping the happy out of your life? Maybe you struggle with aches and pains, just “go through the motions” each day, or lack the energy to do the things you used to love.
How can you get rid of your fatigue and get back on your A-game? More often than not, the answer lies in your nutrition …
These “Magic Beans” are the Secret to Fighting Fatigue
Real natural energy doesn’t come from a frappa-lotta-calories or an “energy” drink that promises to make you fly like a unicorn … only to make you crash.
Happy cells are the key to a happy, energized body.
To be more specific, it’s your cells’ mitochondria that get your energy going … or not.
Mitochondria are bean-shaped organelles that live inside your cells, and each cell can have thousands of these “magic beans.”
Mitochondria are like tiny little batteries that power your body by converting food into energy.
But your mitochondria really can’t perform magic … they need help from YOU to power them up with elite nutrition.
Mitochondria Fun Fact: Mitochondria have their own DNA, so they can actually increase their numbers, giving you more energy when you need it most, like during a big game, a presentation at work, or if you find yourself being chased by a wild boar.
1. B Vitamins
Mitochondria are super-delicate. When free radicals burst onto the scene in your body like a bull in a china shop, they can “short out” your body’s cycle of energy, giving you that annoying fatigue, a weak immune system, and the inability to fight the effects ofaging.
Unfortunately, free radicals are everywhere: these electron-stealing molecules are caused by poor nutrition, stress, pollution and even just your body’s own metabolic processes.
How can you stop free radicals in their tracks and protect your cells? ANTIOXIDANTS.
Our antioxidant superpowers start to decline at age 20. That’s why it’s so important to get enough antioxidants in your diet.
What are the top 10 antioxidants for a healthy, energized body? Check out the list here.
This potent daily vitamin drink has some of the world’s most powerful antioxidants: Goji berries, wild blueberries, cranberries, quercetin, resveratrol and more! In fact, Vitality rocks 6,300 ORAC units. (The ORAC scale rates the ability of an antioxidant to absorb free radicals. Researchers recommend 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units per day.)
3. Vitamin D
Love your sunscreen and long sleeves? Then chances are, you’re like 50 percent of the world’s population: deficient in vitamin D.
Our bodies make vitamin D from sun exposure, and we can only get this vitamin from a few foods, such as salmon and sardines, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products.
Many people with vitamin D deficiency suffer from fatigue and poor mood, as well as muscle weakness and pain.
In fact, research from Newcastle University shows that getting adequate amounts of vitamin D directly affects the energy production within the cells of our muscles. This is important news for both fatigue sufferers and for athletes who find themselves sidelined with longer muscle recovery times.
Vitality formula is made with vitamin D3 … the same form of vitamin D that your body gets from sun exposure. D3 is preferred over D2 (found in most supplements) because it’s easier for your cells to absorb!
Do I Really Need a Supplement for Fatigue?
Even if you have a well-rounded diet, here’s a not-so-fun fact to chew on: today’s food isn’t what it used to be.
It’s true! A study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition showed that the nutrient values of 43 common crops declined by up to 38 percent between 1950 and 1999. And it’s only gotten worse since then!
That’s why supplementation is a must, no matter how good your diet is!
