Want to know how to supercharge your energy levels?
Energy, or lack of it, is the number one health issue that women over 40 suffer from.
And it's really no surprise when you look at everything we need to get done every day! It can feel exhausting.
It can be frustrating to stay motivated to work out, prepare healthy meals, and practice self-care when we feel tired and lethargic. We KNOW these things are good for us, but it can be damn hard to put into practice when we have low energy.
If you need help in the energy department
(and really who doesn't?) there's is an ENERGY Vitamin!
Vitamin B! Which is actually a group of eight Vitamins:
Vitamin B1 - also called thiamine
Vitamin B2 - also called riboflavin
Vitamin B3 - also called niacin
Vitamin B5 - also called pantothenic acid
Vitamin B7 - also called biotin
Vitamin B9 - also called folate or folic acid
They all have unique functions, but overall, the B Vitamin group helps the body produce energy and make molecules in our cells.
Deficiency in B vitamins can result in thyroid and adrenal complications — and create fatigue, weight gain, trouble sleeping, and irritability.
Benefits of increasing Vitamin B include:
Improving Skin Health, Muscle Tone, and Hair Growth
B vitamins can boost skin health by reducing redness, dryness, inflammation, dermatitis, eczema, and acne blemishes.
Increasing B vitamins help reduce hair breakage and hair loss and can help nails become stronger. Being deficient in vitamin B12 may accelerate signs of aging and potentially contribute to greying hair.
Maintaining a Healthy Brain and Nervous System
B vitamins are needed to help to produce neurotransmitters in your brain, which carry chemical signals throughout your entire body, affecting your mood, energy, appetite, and more.
B vitamins can improve your ability to cope with stress.
B6 vitamins include helping with proper brain development and brain function and retaining cognitive health. Consuming adequate amounts has been linked to better memory function and protection against cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, and dementia.
Taking vitamin B6 can also have a beneficial effect on children with learning and behavior disorders, including ADHD.
So how do we increase our Vitamin B? By including the following foods in our diets:
Organ meats, like liver or kidneys
Wild-caught fish, like salmon, mackerel, halibut, sardines, etc.
Pastured chicken and turkey
Dairy products, like yogurt, cheese, and kefir
Leafy green vegetables
Nuts and seeds, like sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts, and more
It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives.
It's what we do consistently.
