Boosting Energy with Vitamin B
When people feel sluggish, they may look for a quick energy boost. They grab a cup of coffee hoping to feel refreshed and energized. Others might reach for an energy drink that is loaded with sugar. The problem with these choices is that caffeine and sugar offer a temporary boost that can leave you feeling more tired than you were before the coffee break.
If you are a regular reader of Rainbow Light articles and posts, you probably already know the basic tips for staying healthy and energized:
- Get at least 8 hours of sleep per night
- Eat a balanced diet
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids during the day
- Exercise regularly
- Take a daily multivitamin
Vitamin B Deficiency
If you aren’t eating a balanced diet or taking a multivitamin, your lack of energy could be caused by a deficiency in Vitamin B. We recommended visiting your doctor for an evaluation to rule out any medical causes of tiredness, and we also recommend adding a multivitamin rich in Vitamin B to your daily routine.
The symptoms of Vitamin B Deficiency Symptoms can be found on WebMD.
Here are a few:
- Weakness, tiredness
- Light headed
- Easy bruising or bleeding
- Stomach upset and weight loss
While vegetarians and vegans have no trouble getting enough protein, they do have to be careful to get enough B12. This vitamin is found in clams, beef, fish, dairy products and fortified cereals. Since vegans get B12 only from fortified cereals and nutritional yeast, a supplement is a great way to ensure the proper B levels to feel great.
Vitamin B Benefits
Many people recognize the energy benefits of the B family, but they may not know that it also benefits brain and nervous system function and supports a healthy heart. B complex vitamin supplements boost energy and help reduce the effects of stress.
We understand the importance of having the optimum potency of this vitamin for the ideal health benefits.
