Top 5 Energy Boosters that will give you wings…naturally!

Natural Red Bull

Natural Red Bull

Booster #1: Oat Straw Extract

Oat straw extract is an all-natural energy booster with no sugar or caffeine, which means no mid-day crash. Researchers have found oat straw may expand the arteries in your brain so more blood pumps through it, revving brain function. The extract is subtle, so you won’t even taste it. Try two teaspoons in your coffee or juice in the morning.

Booster #2: Rhodiola

Rhodiola, one of nature’s best energy builders, helps multiply your energy molecules, giving you a boost throughout the day. Start with 100 mg every day to keep your energy up. If you’re still in a slump, try 200 mg a day. The supplement is available in most health-food stores.

Booster #3: B-Vitamins
Living up to their “essential nutrient” name, B-vitamins aid in just about every body process, but are particularly integral to energy production. Vitamin B-2 (also known as Riboflavin) is necessary for the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates into energy, while Niacin (B-3) and its various derivatives help convert glucose to energy. However, thiamin (B-1), folic acid (B-6), vitamin B-12 and pantothenic acid (B-5) also play a role in energy production. While foods including leafy green vegetables, lentils, beans, fish and seafood, poultry and meats are good sources of B-vitamins, it should be noted that the effectiveness of these vitamins is maximized when they are combined with a B Vitamin Liquid or Capsule.

Booster #4: Asian Ginseng

Asian ginseng, or Panax ginseng, has been utilized to boost energy and fight fatigue for centuries in many Asian countries. According to MedlinePlus, Asian ginseng is frequently used for work efficiency, physical stamina and athletic endurance. You can purchase and consume ginseng as a tea, capsule and tablet.

Booster #5: Guarana is a plant native to the Amazon basin and commonly used in many South American countries, especially Brazil. The fruit of a guarana plant is an effective energy booster because it contains about twice the caffeine content per gram compared to coffee beans, as cited in “Medical Herbalism.” You can find Guarana supplements at Health Food stores minus the Sugar!
