Feeling a little bit lethargic, listless, or just lacking the 'oomph' you usually have when you're at your best? There are many reasons why you might be feeling tired or low on energy, such as low ATP (a molecule that acts as the main energy source for metabolic function) production, oxygen transportation, or simply a lack of sleep. Fortunately, we have supplements that can boost your energy production systems and help you feel ready and raring to go. 



Which vitamins and minerals will improve your energy levels?

Vitamin D is important for maintaining energy levels as it assists in the process of turning glucose and oxygen into energy which then powers various parts of the body, including the muscles. Therefore fatigue-related disorders, like chronic fatigue or seasonal affective disorder, are often common symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency. Our bodies naturally produce vitamin D when we are exposed to sunlight but modern lifestyles mean that many of us struggle to get enough sun exposure, particularly during the winter months. Taking a vitamin D supplement during the winter, or if you have an indoor lifestyle, can greatly assist in maintaining desirable energy levels throughout the year.

Similarly, minerals such as iron and magnesium are also key in the process of energy creation within the cells. Iron is vital in the function of red blood cells transporting oxygen to cells in the body and magnesium is crucial because of its role in turning glucose into energy. Magnesium is especially important in the production and stability of the ATP molecule, which provides energy for over 300 basic bodily processes. Magnesium also helps maintain many functions in the body, most notably muscle and nerve activity. Therefore, boosting your magnesium and iron levels with supplements can help keep energy levels stable and prevent tiredness by helping them perform their functions efficiently.

Vitamin B, while it doesn't create energy by itself, is also needed for the process of turning the food you eat into glucose, which then turns into energy later down the line. Vitamin B also helps the body produce red blood cells which transport oxygen to the cells where they react with the glucose to produce energy. This is why a vitamin B supplement can reduce sluggishness and energize the body as it helps boost the body's natural energy production. On top of all this, vitamin B also plays a vital role in synthesizing and metabolizing serotonin, a chemical responsible for regulating mood (and we all generally have more energy if we're in a good mood!).

How vitamin and mineral supplements can improve your energy levels and health.

The body's energy production system is amazing and complex, involving many processes sustained and aided by various vitamins and minerals. Some of these nutrients may need supplementation if you aren't getting enough in your diet or are depleting natural stores during busy or draining periods.

One of these is vitamin D which has many benefits. One of vitamin D's most important functions is maintaining the activity of the mitochondrial respiratory chain which has a significant impact on energy. The mitochondria are the power generators of your cells as they manufacture ATP from glucose and sugar. ATP is a molecule that acts as the main energy source for metabolic function. Therefore poor mitochondrial efficiency leads to poor ATP production and consequently reduced energy levels and fatigue-related disorders. Energy supplements with vitamin D (or our liquid vitamin D that allows for rapid absorption) can help get your ATP production back up. Vitamin D also has other great side effects such as helping to absorb calcium to maintain bone health and strength. It also helps support a healthy brain, heart, teeth, and lungs, keeps your immune system strong and enhances your mood, and is thus great for your mental health

If you see evidence that your vitamin D levels are low, you can confirm using our Vitamin D Test (test results will also provide customized recommendations on what you can do to improve your vitamin D levels if they are, in fact, low).

Every cell of your body is supported by magnesium, whether it's helping to convert food into energy, regulating your nervous system, or creating new proteins. This means a  magnesium deficiency can easily lead to tiredness and fatigue as these processes simply aren't being carried out efficiently. It also aids energy levels by promoting better sleep since it sends nerve signals that help the muscles and brain relax. Taking a magnesium supplement can improve your health and wellbeing in many other ways: for instance, it increases water in the intestines, thereby relieving occasional constipation. It also has important effects on the cardiovascular system, keeping the heart rhythm steady and the bones strong. Our highly absorbable magnesium supplement is fast-acting and helps regulate both blood sugar and blood pressure levels, alleviates constipation, contributes to energy production, and helps normalize the levels of many important nutrients.

Besides efficient energy and ATP production, another key element for staying vitalized is good sleep which allows your body to repair and recuperate. Useful for good sleep is the hormone melatonin, a natural hormone made by your body's pineal gland that makes sleep more inviting and helps with staying asleep too. A shortage of melatonin due to advancing age or some other disorders (even with little children) can disrupt sleep and hinder the body's ability to recover and re-energize. Supplemental melatonin can help restore healthy sleep patterns and it's great for jet lag too. Best of all, our melatonin supplement is not addictive so you can use it only when actually needed. 

On the other side of this, caffeine is known to fight off tiredness by blocking the effects of adenosine (a brain chemical that makes you feel tired). At the same time, it increases alertness by trigging the release of adrenaline, the “fight-or-flight” hormone associated with increased energy. Along with caffeine, our MAGIC Ground Coffee includes Lion's Mane (Hericium Erinaceus) which is rich in antioxidants that support overall cellular health and help your body to produce energy. 

If you are feeling tired and don't know the cause, try one of our at-home tests to see if you have a deficiency of one of these vitamins or minerals. Once you know the deficiency, you'll be able to use a specific supplement to compensate or you can try one of our multi-nutrients for an overall supplement to your health, wellbeing, and vitality.
