Spring is here. The sun is shining, and the days are getting longer. Unfortunately, though, your energy levels aren’t quite matching up to these longer days and shorter nights. But even if you find yourself running on fumes long before it’s time to turn in for the night, take heart. You can regain your vim and vigor.
The key just may be infusing your body with those essential vitamins, minerals, and micro and macro nutrients it needs to power through the day.
Fueling Your Body for Lasting Energy
Your body is the most complex and miraculous machine ever to exist. Every second of every day, your cells are hard at work, performing literally billions of cellular reactions essential to keeping you alive, healthy, and vital.
It’s little wonder that your body gets tired—and not just bone-tired, but cell-tired too. That’s especially true if you’re not feeding your cells properly or treating them kindly by getting consistent, quality sleep, keeping well hydrated, and staying physically active.
Fierce and Fabulous Fatigue-Fighters
Your body needs a clean, well-balanced, whole diet to keep your cells nourished and energized, but when it comes to fighting fatigue, there are a few specific vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients you need to pay attention to.
Proteins are your cells’ building blocks. They’re essential in helping your cells repair themselves and build tissue. While many foods, from eggs to nuts to dairy and lean meats, are rich in protein, you may not be able to get all the protein you need from diet alone. Supplements such as protein powder are a great way to boost your energy by giving your cells the extra nourishment they may need.
Vitamins are also critical for energy. Deficiencies in vitamin B can cause severe fatigue, along with weakness, confusion, and tingling and numbness in the limbs.
Deficiencies in vitamin B can also be linked to anemia, which is another common cause of significant fatigue and weakness. Iron deficiency is also often related to anemia. In cases of both vitamin B and iron deficiency, the blood does not produce enough red blood cells to properly oxygenate the body, depriving your cells of life-sustaining oxygen and causing them to work that much harder to keep your body alive and functioning.
Then there are the electrolytes. Electrolyte imbalances can produce a whole host of sometimes terrifying symptoms, from extreme fatigue to muscle weakness and twitching to confusion to cardiac arrhythmias.
