Safest Energy Supplements
The lack of energy is the most common complaint from the majority of the people today, it is only common sense if so many people are experiencing this there has to be a good reason. My opinion is the reason is our food supply does not provide us enough of the vitamins we require, also our lifestyles today are living a life of convenience with fast easy less healthy meals. When I am consuming healthy meals consisting of vegetables, fruit and lean protein I feel so much healthier and my energy is much improved. It is very difficult to stick to this diet all the time, this week I had consumed too many grain products which has flared up my symptoms. Even gluten-free grains effect me when I over consume them, grains in moderation are alright but when we over consume them they effect our health.
I would like to share with you the most efficient and the safest products you can use, these products have given people the best results with much less side effects if any at all. These main purpose is to provide more energy, but there are other benefits as well. Here is the list:
Today I am going to focus on B12, this is the most common deficiency many people today with low energy levels are experiencing. Even though I am not a big fan of synthetic supplements, this is one I add to my diet everyday. Besides improving your energy, this also assists in regulating your brain and nervous system functioning. Assists in the production of your red blood cells, for as long as I can remember I have been anemic and this does seem to have helped me with that problem. Many people who are deficient in B12 are anemic and/or has autoimmune disease, so if you have a history of either you really should consider adding this to your diet.
B12 Vitamin Deficiency Symptoms
This deficiency can become a very severe and serious problem, even slightly low levels for long-term periods has the possibility to cause irreversible damage to the brain and nervous system. Some of the early warning symptoms you should watch out for are:
The most common causes of this deficiency is usually low intake of the B12 food sources, but also you can be experiencing your not absorbing enough of B12 from your food. This is especially common with people who has a digestive system disease, another possibility could be some of the medications your on.
Vegans are often deficient since this is very rare to be found in plant sources, if your a vegan you should consult your physician and arrange for blood work to confirm if you are deficient or not for sure. Other high risk people are infants and the elderly, both of these age groups often have a deficiency because of their diets.
Depression is now being associated with this deficiency, lower cognitive functioning and may impact your neurotransmitter functioning as well.
B12 Food Sources
60% of your B12 is provided through your fish, fowl and red meat consumption. Eggs are also a source, but they only provide about 9%. Clams and mussels are another good source, also increasing your dairy products may improve your energy and brain function.
Fortified Foods are your breakfast cereals, soy products , energy bars and energy drinks. Fortified foods are not really a good source of this vitamin, your best sources are animals products such as meat and dairy.
