Energy support refers to supplements that provide the body with support for both energy metabolism and to maintain cellular energy levels. Taking these supplements can help your body convert the food you eat into energy.
Taking any supplements for energy should be done in conjunction with eating a well-balanced diet, drinking enough water, exercising regularly and getting good sleep.
Some of the main ingredients used in energy support supplements include Ashwagandha, Rhodiola Rosea, CoQ10, Vitamin B12, Iron, Creatine, Citrulline, Beetroot powder, Melatonin, Tyrosine and Caffeine With L-Theanine.
Ashwagandha is a herb used in Ayurveda, an Indian medical practice dating back centuries to aid in increasing energy, reducing stress and anxiety and feeling better. Rhodiola Rosea is a herb that grows in certain cold, mountainous regions. It’s widely used as an adaptogen, a natural substance that enhances your body’s ability to cope with stress. CoQ10, which stands for coenzyme Q10, is made naturally in the body. All cells contain CoQ10, although the heart, kidneys and liver have the highest levels. Cells use CoQ10 to make energy and protect themselves from oxidative damage
Along with the other B vitamins, vitamin B12 helps transform the food you eat into energy that your cells can use. It also keeps your body’s nerves and blood cells healthy and helps prevent a type of anaemia that can make you weak and tired. The body needs iron to make haemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen from your lungs to the organs and tissues throughout your body. Creatine is a compound that is naturally found in red meat, pork, poultry and fish. It acts as a source of quick energy in your body.
Citrulline works to increase nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide acts as a vasodilator, causing the inner muscles of blood vessels to widen and thus increasing circulation. Similar to citrulline, beetroot powder contains nitrate produces nitric oxide in the body, which relaxes blood vessels and increases blood flow and oxygen delivery. Melatonin is a natural hormone that plays a role in sleep. It’s produced and released depending on the time of day — rising in the evening and falling in the morning. Tyrosine is an amino acid that is naturally produced by your body. It is found in most high-protein foods, including chicken, eggs and dairy products that are important for producing neurotransmitters, which are chemicals that transmit messages in your brain.
Caffeine With L-Theanine Caffeine is commonly consumed for its energy-boosting properties in the form of coffee, tea, cocoa beverages, energy drinks and sodas. Many people limit caffeine because it can lead to irritability, nervousness, restlessness and a crash after its initial energy boost. Combining L-theanine with caffeine as a supplement may be an easy way to prevent these side effects. L-theanine is an amino acid found naturally in tea and some mushrooms. It is thought to promote relaxation without increasing drowsiness.
