Energy & Performance
Even if you don’t get up at 5 am every day to jog or go to the gym, daily life can be pretty demanding. Many of us are trying to cope with working hard, playing hard, staying fit and spending time with our families and friends. All this activity requires energy – and where do we get our energy from? Of course, our diet is crucial to our energy levels, but what if you’re one of the many New Zealanders who don’t manage to eat their five serves of veggies, two serves of fruit, wholegrain cereals, proteins, and healthy fats and drink plenty of water each and every day?
Chances are, your energy levels will take a dip at some point. Sure, your diet may be responsible but other factors may include poor sleep, lack of exercise, and periods of stress.
What you can do to boost your energy levels
Some dietary supplements can help with low energy periods. These include:
- members of the Vitamin B family
- Co Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
These nutrients are a great way to ensure you have the energy needed to get the most out of your day.
