Best Vitamins and Supplements for Energy

November 27, 2012

If you pay a visit in the supermarket, you will see massive display of energy sources. There are energy drinks and energy bars that you can easily grab at the cooler and counter. There are also large numbers of energy supplements at the corner.  It seems like people are more concern about wanting more energy to sustain daily activities. That is fine as long as people know what they are picking from the shelves.

Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 are some of the vitamins mainly linked with reduced energy.  Experts believe that deficiency of these vitamins will lead to tiredness, fatigue and stress. Presence of other symptoms may also occur.

Production of healthy red blood cells is through Vitamin B12 together with folic acid. These cells help in proper digestion and absorption of food. These cells are able to turn the food into energy that has influence in metabolism. Reduced level of Vitamin B12 may be due to medications or the lifestyles of people. A person with insufficient Vitamin B12 can be seen with symptoms such as lack of energy, numbness of feet and hand, sore and cracked tongue and rare mood changes. Long term deficiency of this vitamin can lead to permanent brain and central nervous system impairment. Among the foods rich in Cobalamin that should be included in the diet are liver, eggs, caviar, beef, fish, lamb, oysters, mussels, crabs, lobsters, and cheese. Cyanocobalamin is also available in different drug formulation together with other important vitamins and minerals. Vitamin B12 Supplements are available as well in the market and online like in i-Supplements and LifeExtension. You can check out their websites to check the wide variety of supplements that are energy boosters.

Another important energy giving vitamin is folic acid, other known as folate. As mentioned earlier, this goes with the Vitamin B12 in creation of new red blood cells that help the body in so many things. Insufficient levels of folic acid may lead to a disorder called as megaloblastic anemia. Symptoms that may occur with insufficient folic acid are insomnia, weakness, shortness of breath, digestive disturbances, memory problems and inflamed tongue. This particular vitamin is mostly destroyed during cooking so proper way of handling food is necessary to achieve appropriate levels of folic acid. Dark leafy vegetables, avocado, celery, corn, beets, beans, peas, citrus fruits, okra, seeds and nuts, carrots, squash, cauliflower and brussel sprouts are some of the foods rich in folic acid.

Vitamin B12 and folic acid supplements are available drug dosage forms in the pharmacy and health shops as well as online like in i-Supplements and LifeExtension. You can check out their websites to check the wide variety of energy booster supplements.

  10. I truly get scared of synthetic supplements that's why I don't really take vitamins on a daily basis. My daily dose of good nutrients comes from fruit and vegetables and you are so true, they are the best and natural vitamins we could ever have.

  15. people depend so much on the supplements this days. that they dont care much anymore to exercise and eat the right food, because supplements supplies what is lacking. i still like the traditional way where u burn ur ass off just to get lots of energy and eat the right food to stay healthy and strong. but if u are getting older, u need supplements to help u maintain your metabolism, and give you extra boost.
