Let me help you with some herbal remedies and supplements that can help you stay on the road to be energized and a healthy green lifestyle.

9 Natural Herbal Remedies and Supplements To Boost Your Energy:

1. Milk Thistle is a wonderful herb that can help boost your energy by helping your liver work efficiently and effectively. It helps detox your liver and supports and healthy elimination of unwanted and harmful toxins.  If your liver is sluggish your body’s energy levels will suffer substantially. It is vitally important to give your liver all the nutrients it needs to boost your energy.  Read10 Health Benefits From that Purple Flower–Milk Thistle!”

  • Eat liver supporting vegetables — carrots, beets, beet greens, garlic, artichokes, burdock and dandelion roots.

2. Rhodiola is a fast acting herb for stress and perks up your mood. Taking a supplement of Rhodiola can perk you up and help you feel relaxed and ready for whatever life brings on.

3. Siberian Ginseng Root helps to improve physical endurance and is a well-known energizing herb among athletes.  Take a daily supplement of this to improve your energy and all over health.

4. B-Complex Vitamins are essential for metabolizing nutrients into energy.

  • Eat whole unprocessed foods such as legumes, beans, organic grass-fed lean meats, and raw or organic dairy products.

5. Ribose supplement optimizes energy levels, improves sleep and mental clarity and focus, and helps with pain (particularly in people who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia).   The energy molecules in our bodies are made from ribose which is a unique simple sugar. Taking Ribose supplement can benefit your body.

6. COQ10 a natural chemical compound that resides in the energy-producing part of our cells and it contributes to production of protein and muscle contraction among many other body functions. Research has shown that CoQ10 has improved severe fatigue, heart disease, helps to remove free radicals from the body that cause damage and disease.

  • Because levels of this nutrient naturally decline with age many integrative physicians recommend taking a daily CoQ10 supplement especially for those with chronic fatigue or heart disease.
  • Coenzyme Q10  primarily from oily fish, organ meats such as liver, and whole grains.

7. Magnesium is vital to almost all enzymatic functions in the body including energy production, muscle relaxation, quality of sleep, fatigue, weakness, anxiety, and irritability.  It is one of the most critical nutrients for good health and magnesium deficiency is thought to be the cause or root of many diseases.  Check out what Dr Oz has to say about magnesium.

  • Eat plenty of bananas, spinach, kidney beans, black beans, lentils, quinoa, organic oatmeal to help keep  your levels of magnesium to a safe and healthy level.
  • Many health care providers recommend taking a daily supplement of magnesium.

8. Cordyceps has been used in traditional medicine for centuries to treat fatigue and is used by many athletes today. It is a fungus that grows on Tibetan caterpillars. Cordyceps is believed to increase oxygen delivery to cells which improves energy and endurance.

9. Vitamin C is needed to make L-carnitine in your body. L-carnitine helps burn fat for energy. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant removing free radicals from our body providing more energy and supporting our immune system.

    Great article Marla! I’m taking a nutrition class and this week we are talking about supplements. I prefer to get my nutritents through food, but that is not possible for everyone. I also know that certain medicines take a lot of nutrition out of our bodies that needs to be replaced. Energy! We all need more and it so interesting to me that we would have more if our bodies worked in a more efficient matter. Getting rid of the junk food and detoxing our liver (for example) will do just that for us. Fascinating!

    1. Thanks for reading my article and commenting. I also agree with you that is best to get your nutrients from foods but you are certainly correct that that is not always possible. For myself I have many food allergies so my diet is limited and therefore have to look take some supplements and unfortunately our food supply doesn’t always contain enough nutrients especially if people have special health conditions. Have a wonderful healthy day. Marla

Would love to know your thoughts!
