The Power of B Vitamins for Better Energy
Want a little more energy in your day? B vitamins play an active part in the smooth functioning of our bodies. They help produce blood cells and DNA and also drive your metabolism—how your body converts the food you eat into energy.
Your body can’t produce or store B vitamins, so you need to get them each day from your diet (from animal food sources) or supplements. A deficiency in vitamin B12, the most well-known of the B vitamins, may have a negative impact on your health.
And the benefits go beyond just more energy. Let’s look at some ways correcting this vitamin deficiency can boost your energy and improve your overall well-being.
Boosts Your Energy
Vitamin B12 helps produce and protect red blood cells, so a deficiency can contribute to anemia. When you are anemic, your blood doesn’t have enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to all your vital organs. People who are low in vitamin B12 often experience fatigue and weakness.
Low vitamin B12 is especially common in mature adults because as we get older, our bodies are less adept at absorbing this vitamin. Taking a high-quality vitamin B12 supplement can replenish the level you need to feel good.
To increase vitality, you can also add ginseng to work together with vitamin B12. Trials of ginseng indicate that it can reduce fatigue, particularly for people with chronic fatigue.
Bone density is a clear indicator of bone health and is linked with the level of vitamin B12 in the body. One study of more than 2500 adults found that, when compared to people with enough vitamin B12, those with a low level of B12 also had a lower bone density.
Bone health is maintained over the long haul with a healthy and active lifestyle, and adding a supplement can help ensure your bones stay strong for years to come.
Lifts Your Mood
The last year has been tough on everyone. According to one study, depression symptoms in the United States during the Covid-19 pandemic increased by 300%.
Early research indicates that vitamin B12 may enhance your mood and reduce feelings of depression and anxiety.
To help out, you can try combining B12 with other nutrients. Maca root, a plant native to Peru, has been known to reduce anxiety and depression, especially in women experiencing menopause. Another benefit is that maca has been shown to improve sexual desire, which is a great mood booster all by itself.
We’re all ready to get back to regular activity and rebuild our energy. Increasing B vitamins and other nutrients can give you the extra lift you need to start a new chapter in your life.
