More Energy Throughout The Day - An Easy Solution
by Simon Dewaele on Aug 28, 2023
The amount of energy kids have is unfathomable. Even after an entire day of school it looks like they still have unlimited energy left. You were like that too. But now?
When I come home from work, I have no energy left to do the things I'd like to do, like exercising.
Energy is what makes you feel youthful, do more, and be fully present. Energy brings happiness.
When our energy levels drop, it's tempting to reach for a cup of coffee. For many, it's a daily ritual. However, it only temporarily boosts your energy. Then comes the afternoon slump – a sudden feeling of tiredness, low motivation, and simply no focus. Another cup of coffee? Coffee is the culprit behind the afternoon slump; don't make the same mistake to combat it.
So, coffee is no real solution for your grogginess. A sustainable solution should provide your body with natural and healthy energy every day, throughout the day. It should keep you from experiencing the afternoon slump.
There are three reasons why you feel tired and unable to concentrate. We'll delve into these three reasons and offer the most effective solutions for each.
As your ultimate answer, you'll receive a scientific solution crafted by experts. It's a natural solution that gives your body sustainable energy. Thanks to this solution, you'll wake up feeling refreshed, and you can finally be productive all day. This formula works best when you've already addressed the following three causes of fatigue:
The 3 Causes of Energy Deficiency – and How to Solve Them Effectively
1. Your body needs more sleep than you think, and not just any sleep.
For energy, you mainly need 7-9 hours of sleep. When you consistently sleep less than 7 hours, scientists can identify objective deficiencies in your body through research.
But it's not just about getting 7-9 hours of sleep per day. You also need quality sleep (deep sleep and REM sleep). Sleep aids, alcohol, and other wrong tools hinder this greatly.
This topic is too vast to discuss thoroughly here, but fortunately, we've made a comprehensive analysis of how you can easily improve your sleep quality.
2. Choose the right physical activity.
Being inactive makes you tired. If your body doesn't need energy because you're sitting for extended periods, it won't produce energy either.
On the contrary, if you move a lot, your body will generate more energy. Lots of activity throughout the day might make your body a bit tired by the end of the day, making it easier to sleep. It's becoming clearer now, right?
But not all forms of exercise or sports give you more energy. Your heart rate needs to be in a specific zone while exercising – zone 2 cardio. This increases the quantity and efficiency of the cells that produce energy. You should aim for about 150-200 minutes of zone 2 cardio per week for optimal health. So, cycling, jogging, brisk walking for 20-30 minutes each day.
But how do you know when you've reached zone 2 cardio? There's an easy rule of thumb: exercise as hard as you can whilst still being able to hold a normal conversation.
If you have a fitness tracker, you can monitor your heart rate during exercise. To be in zone 2, your heart rate should be between 60-70% of your maximum heart rate.
3. Nutrition that gives your body more energy than it takes away.
The right nutrition provides your body with the nutrients it needs for energy. Two factors are essential:
- A steady blood sugar level.
- A healthy gut microbiome.
These two factors are crucial for a high and constant energy level.
A healthy diet varies for everyone; some may have trouble digesting carbohydrates, while others struggle with fats. Every body is different, but generally, we can establish some rules:
- Avoid fast sugars like candy that cause spikes and crashes in your blood sugar.
- Avoid processed foods.
- Consume whole grains, complete proteins, and plenty of fiber.
By following these 3 rules, you support your blood sugar and gut flora, making you naturally feel more cheerful and less likely to experience an energy crash in the afternoon. Be patient; one healthy meal won't make a big difference.
But there's more...
Even after your efforts to eat healthier, your body may still struggle to extract energy from your food. So, even if you're consuming the right nutrients, if your body doesn't efficiently absorb them, you won't get the desired effect.
Your body falls short in a few areas when converting energy. Even if you consume enough calories or energy, not everything is converted into usable energy. That's why you sometimes feel inexplicably exhausted.
Your gut needs to have the ability to extract all the nutrients. Fortunately, there are natural substances that support this. These 4 active substances help your body get more energy from your food, so you can feel great.
The 4 Active Substances that Give Your Body More Energy
Two of these active substances help your body produce more energy, while the other two provide energy directly. By combining these 4, you'll create a wonder remedy for your well-being.
The 2 Most Important Vitamins for Your Body to Generate More Energy
1. Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is the primary vitamin for your body to extract more energy from your food. By taking a vitamin B12 supplement, your body will be better able to produce more energy. This vitamin is found only in animal products, making it a popular supplement for vegans.
Vitamin B12 plays an active role in the production of red blood cells and indirectly stabilises blood sugar levels. Additionally, B12 is responsible for absorbing nutrients from your food into your body, allowing you to better absorb energy-containing substances from your diet.
2. Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 promotes overall mental well-being. It enhances cognitive function, reduces fatigue, and improves mood. Thanks to Vitamin D3, your body absorbs more energy because your intestines better absorb substances like magnesium. It also strengthens your immune system, so your body spends less energy fighting diseases.
Vitamin D3 has many functions in your body, from immunity and energy to nerve stability. For example, it also stimulates the pancreas and insulin production, playing a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels. Fewer sugar crashes that make you tired and a significant aid for people with diabetes in controlling their insulin.
So, is it just about eating healthier?
To effectively get the required amounts, you must strictly adhere to only the best: plenty of eggs, fatty fish, meat, nuts, leafy greens, etc. Our modern lifestyle doesn't always allow for this. It's not easy.
To ensure sufficient intake of these vitamins, I recommend supplements, especially if you want to feel fresh and energetic every day.
2 Natural Substances That Give Your Body More Energy
Coenzyme Q10 naturally occurs in every cell of the body and plays an essential role there. CoQ10 is not easy for our bodies to produce by themselves. It requires a wide range of vitamins (like those mentioned above). So, it's advisable to take CoQ10 directly to help your body and give it more energy.
2. Ginseng Root
Ginseng is a Korean plant whose root has been used in ancient medicine for its strong effects. No natural food contains ginseng by itself. Ginseng is often added to supplements, energy drinks, or food. The plant is known for its ability to reduce fatigue and promote long-lasting energy and focus. It's also known for other benefits:
- It improves your blood circulation.
- Reduces stress.
- Maintains a steady energy level (stable blood sugar levels).
- Boosts physical and mental performance.
Several studies have shown that ginseng can have a positive effect on reducing fatigue and enhancing mental alertness. The active substances in the root, called ginsenosides, create this effect. So, watch out for the dosage and standardization of these substances (expressed in percentages).
According to history a miracle substance, now proven to give you an energy boost.
It helps create red blood cells that are needed to produce energy.
It helps your body absorb calcium, magnesium, and phosphates in your intestines. This results in more energy in your body.
An enzyme that your cells need to convert other substances into energy.
In the end, if you want to feel a noticeable difference in your daily energy and get rid of energy slumps and fatigue, you have almost no choice but to consider supplements.
By combining all these vitamins and active substances, you'll not only have more energy but also be happier and more productive throughout the day. However, taking 4 separate supplements and drastically changing your eating habits doesn't seem so easy.
It's frustrating to take 4 supplements every day.
Supplements are generally not enjoyable:
- You constantly forget to take them.
- They taste neutral or even bad.
- They are annoying to swallow.
- They're not even that effective; their absorption can be improved.
They're made without considering your experience and ultimate goals. If something isn't enjoyable, people find it harder to stick to it. That's what we want to change.
In my previous job, I often had long afternoons filled with meetings. It became a habit for me to struggle to stay alert and attentive during these meetings. I sometimes almost fell asleep, and it didn't go unnoticed by some...
I had had enough, so I started drinking coffee and energy drinks. I also began to pay more attention to my lunch; not eating anything too heavy or greasy, for example.
Additionally, I decided to start taking supplements. Vitamins, minerals... I don't like pills and have trouble with them myself. That's why I never stick with supplements.
Do you have any idea how expensive they are?
- I spent € 80 a month on vitamins and caffeine!
A new journey I embarked on with high hopes quickly became a futile one. The supplements, which I managed to take for at least 2 months, had no effect on how I felt at work. I still dozed off...
The cause was elsewhere; vitamins and minerals weren't the solution. I began to reevaluate my lifestyle: after long work hours, I didn't eat very healthily in the evenings, I worked late, and I even dreamed about my work at night.
Not pleasant at all, I slept poorly, woke up tired, skipped breakfast, and drank energy drinks to get through the day. A recipe for disaster, as it turns out. After months of persistent fatigue, I'd had enough and decided to seek a sustainable and healthy solution.
