Energy Boosting Supplements
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.
