How to Get Your Energy Back
Are you tired of feeling tired? There are many reasons why you may be feeling sluggish. We offer some suggestions on why you may be feeling fatigued and how you can overcome them.
Get your hormones back in balance. Ashwagandha is an Indian plant with chemicals in it that can balance hormones that go out of whack when you are stressed and increase adrenaline. It also contains a compound that can increase the stamina in muscles. Experts recommend that you take from 200 mg. to 500 mg. per day to increase your energy, mental focus and clarity.
Clean out your colon. Constipation is a condition that 23 million Americans suffer from. This can load your digestive system with toxins and can even trigger fatigue and headaches. In order to get your colon regulated, you should drink at least eight glasses of water per day and eat at least three servings of fruit and vegetables per day.
Take a zinc supplement. If you are stressed out and feeling too exhausted to get through the day, you probably are low in zinc. Stress can deplete your body of zinc which is needed to release excess copper from your cells. Too much copper in your system can cause fatigue, brain fog and insomnia. Experts advise that you take 15 to 25 mg. of a zinc supplement daily.
Add some plants to your house. Indoor air pollution can cause fatigue because the air you breathe may be loaded with dust, mold and chemicals. This forces your heart and lungs to work harder, which makes you feel sluggish. You can remove up to 87% of indoor pollution by placing three or more houseplants in rooms where you spend a lot of time. The leaves on houseplants have a built-in filtration system that can clean the air.
Take Vitamin C. If you are even mildly allergic to common things such as foods, pets or pollen, this can cause you to feel irritable, fatigued and even depressed. Experts say that 2,000 mg. of Vitamin C daily can work similar to an antihistamine, but without the unpleasant side effects like drowsiness and dizziness.
