Modern life is often busy and action packed. A lot of us work extra hours, fit in time with family and friends, have hobbies and also want to keep active and healthy. The result of this trend towards making the most of every moment is that we can often find ourselves lacking energy, fatigued or just needing that extra boost to get us through the rest of the day. Whether it’s mornings that you struggle with, that post-lunch slump or staying up past teatime, we can all benefit from a boost to our energy levels from time to time.
The Business Of Energy Supplements
A lot of us may find ourselves turning to energy supplements and stimulants for that boost in energy our body needs. The most popular choice is often caffeine - whether in coffee or energy drinks - and sugar - either in drinks or chocolate bars. The problem with stimulants is that they offer a short term boost but this can actually lead to a later slump, which makes taking them counter-productive.
Another popular choice is energy supplement drinks. Whilst they may seem like a relatively new thing, energy drinks in various forms have been around since the turn of the 20th Century. Coca-Cola and Pepsi were both seen as providing energy when they were first introduced to the world and have since lowered their caffeine levels. Energy drinks as we would recognise them today became popular in the early 2000’s. Again many of these options contain caffeine and sugar to boost your energy levels. This is an instant hit but doesn’t offer your body the nutrients it needs to speed up your metabolism and produce energy.
Vitamins as energy supplements
A great source of energy are some vitamins and minerals. The B vitamins are perhaps most famous for their energy boosting properties. Unlike stimulants that provide a short term boost, B vitamins help to speed up your metabolism and bodily reactions. The most famous is Vitamin B12 - this has links not only to the metabolism but also to a healthy nervous system and immune system. The problem is that many of us don’t get enough Vitamin B12 - this is especially true for those following a plant-based diet, as it isn’t found in plant sources. You may have fortified cereal or plant milk to get B12 but it is advised that vegans and vegetarians take a daily Vitamin B12 supplement. This can help with tiredness and fatigue, particularly when you are first making the switch to vegan life.
Introducing the Active Energy Complex
If you are looking for an energy supplement that contains vitamins and minerals then a great place to start is with us here at Vegetology. We have created a unique formula - Active Energy Complex. This unique supplement combines the power of vitamins found to be energy boosting in Western medicine with two herbs from traditional Chinese medicine.
What’s in Active Energy Complex?
Firstly there is a formula of vitamins known for their energy boosting properties - the Active Energy Complex contains iron, Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10 and B Vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12. Alongside this there is a blend of herbs - Rhodiola Rosea and Schisandra Chinensis. These herbs have been specially chosen and are the thing that sets apart this Active Energy Complex from other energy supplements.
They are adaptogens - that is, they adapt to the time of the day and the needs of your body. If you take the supplement in the morning, your body will know it needs to be awake and aware, so they will work with your body to help fight fatigue. But if you take the supplement in the evening, they will help your body to relax. The combination of these adaptogens and the vitamin complex offers some amazing results for combating fatigue and tiredness.
Will Active Energy Complex help me?
It’s always important to consult your doctor or GP if you have severe or ongoing tiredness or fatigue because there may be an underlying health problem that you need to address. But in general, if you’re suffering from everyday fatigue and tiredness, we are very confident Active Energy Complex can help with energy levels. This is because it combines the vitamins commonly associated with boosting your body’s natural energy with traditional Chinese medicine ingredients that work with your body’s needs.
Here at Vegetology we passionately believe in the products we make. That is because we work to develop those products over a period of research and testing so we are confident of the scientific background of each supplement. We are a team of scientists ourselves and so we rigorously test and research ingredients to find the best combinations and the most effective way to combine them into a supplement to benefit our customers. We also welcome feedback and love to hear stories of how the supplements are working for you.
Modern living at times can feel exhausting! Ever found yourself feeling busy, stressed and wishing you had more hours in the day? This can leave you lacking energy and suffering from general fatigue.
