Top 4 Nutrients to Boost your Energy this Summer

We’re approaching mid-summer and there is still a whole month left to fit in all the summer activities that you can! To make sure your energy stays up to par, or if you’re fighting fatigue, make sure you have these nutrients in your system.

Vitamin D – Although referred to as a vitamin, it is actually a hormone. Important for many different body functions like regulating your calcium, your immune system and other hormones. It is often deficient, even in the summer! You can find it in fortified milk, eggs or get plenty of sun year round! Better yet, you can find it in the Mood Booster here at the IV.

Vitamin B5 – This vitamin, also called pantothenic acid, helps catalyze a variety of processes that sustain life. It is required for chemical reactions that generate your energy from your food. It also helps you make hormones, including melatonin, for restful sleep so that you can be full energy the next day. Include it in your diet by getting in egg and avocado. You can find at the IV in our Stress B IV.

Vitamin B12 – This is THE “energy vitamin” as it will increase your energy level and prevent fatigue.  It also helps to suppress the appetite in weight loss programs plus having a mild diuretic effect.  It stimulates the use of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in the body. Must eat meat to get this B vitamin. You can also find this awesome vitamin in the Weightloss Booster.

L-Carnitine – This amino acid is a special shuttle of fat molecules into your energy producing machinery in your cells. Carnitine decreases as we age. It also increases your energy levels while it helps you burn fat. You can find it in red meat and smaller amounts in fish and chicken. Better yet you can find it in our Slim Jim/Jane IV.
