Having great energy is often cited as one of the reasons for feeling your best. When the opposite is true, and you're feeling fatigued, it is important to determine the root cause and rule out anything serious with your healthcare professional. Often, a poor diet, with low nutrient value is part of the problem. And sometimes, eating all the right foods still isn’t getting you to where you want to be - energy wise.
Supplementing with vitamins and minerals to address any deficiencies is one piece of the puzzle, the other is to target cellular or mitochondrial health. Mitochondria are the “energy factories in every cell of our body. Vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids (like CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, niacin, glutathione, D-Ribose and phosphatidylcholine - to name a few) help to maintain healthy, well-functioning cells and mitochondrial health. Healthy cells not only support robust energy, they help protect against diseases associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.
