See ya later March and hello April!
Exhausted? Not sleeping well? Hitting those afternoon slumps? This month I am talking all things energy, stress, and sleep!!
Today, I am going to dive deep into four ways to boost energy levels--naturally!
If you’ve been dragging lately, it could be that you’re not getting enough vitamin B12. Along with the other B vitamins, B12 is known for its ability to keep you alert and feeling energized. Vitamin B12 keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy. It is responsible for the smooth functioning of several critical body processes. A deficiency in Vitamin B12 is usually reported with symptoms of fatigue.
Deficiency in the complex of B Vitamins can result in fatigue, neuropathy, irregular heartbeat, edema (swelling), confusion, short term memory loss, difficulty concentrating, dizziness, skin disorders, hair loss, sore throat, anemia, cataracts, reproductive problems, gastrointestinal issues, depression, headache, shortness of breath, and an array of neurological problems.
Why is the B vitamin so amazing? Take a look at all the ways the B Vitamin supports our bodies: boosts energy level, reduces depression, helps metabolize protein, good for brain health, good for the digestive system, promotes healthy skin hair and nails, helps with cholesterol, helps maintain healthy blood pressure, and helps prevent strokes.
I have two more sneaky benefits of B vitamins you may not have heard of before...
1) Are you prone to canker sores? There's research that this could be a deficiency of Vitamin B.
2) Do mosquitoes LOVE you? Mosquitoes don’t like vitamin B in our blood.
My favorite B vitamin: SUPER B... Serious game-changer here!!
Super B is a comprehensive vitamin complex containing all eight essential, energy-boosting B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12). It features Orgen-FA, a natural folate source derived from lemon peels, and methylcobalamin, a more bioavailable source of B12. Combined with Nutmeg essential oil and bioavailable chelated minerals such as magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc, Super B assists in maintaining healthy energy levels and supports mood and cardiovascular and cognitive function.
Did you know when supplements and oils are combined, the bioavailability (how much your body actually absorbs) skyrockets up to 60-80%?? Supplements you buy in the stores are 15-30%. This is why I choose YL supplements. I'm not wasting my money on supplements that I just pee right out. ;)
