Beat an energy slump with these quick and easy energizing supplements.

Rhodiola

This adaptgenic herb allows your body to adapt to stress and improves endurance and immunity. It also has been found to boost the activity of our 0„3¡ãfeel good0„3¡À hormones in the brain (serotonin and dopamine) which influence learning, attention, mood and memory. Traditionally, rhodiola was used to increase physical endurance, work productivity and longevity and to treat fatigue, depression, digestive issues, infections and anxiety.

Magnesium Beats Fatigue

Magnesium is a wonderful mineral involved in over three hundred enzymatic reactions in the body. When we are magnesium-deficient, our bodily functions on the cellular level, which are dependant upon magnesium, slow down. Eventually this sluggishness begins to manifest on a physical level and we become fatigued. Chronic fatigue syndrome is even linked to persistent magnesium deficiency and conditions may improve with magnesium supplements.

Tyrosine for Stress Support and Endurance

Research suggests that tyrosine acts as an adaptogen by helping the body to adapt and cope with the effects of physical or psychological pressures by minimizing the symptoms brought on by stress. This is primarily due to the fact that tyrosine is a building block for norepinephine and epinephrine, the body's two main stress-related hormones. Taken ahead of time, tyrosine allows some people to avoid typical bodily reactions and feelings from stressful situations such as surgery, emotional upset and sleep deprivation. Tyrosine has been tested on humans for increasing their endurance to anxiety and stress under fatigue. Research studies proved that tyrosine supplementation resulted in increased performance in a control group. Tyrosine may also alleviate some of the different physiological problems often associated with the stress of weight loss.

Green Tea for Stress and Fat-Burning Support

Green tea contains theanine, a naturally calming compound for the brain. Studies have shown that green tea maintains levels of norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is an energy- boosting hormone that is naturally produced when we are under stress which encourages the breakdown of fat.

B Vitamins and Green Food Supplements

If your crash down in the afternoon, keep a bottle of liquid B vitamins at your desk or consider a powdered green food such as Greens + for a fantastic energy boost. Adding the powder to just a bit of orange juice rather than mixing up a whole glass may be a good idea if you are not keen on the taste. Make sure you follow this mixture with more water for optimal effects. Taking your B vitamins to the office allows you to get them into your system at least five days per week and they will be handy for times when your brain and body need them the most.
