Energy – something most of us crave and could use more of! We often wish we had more energy to get us through the day and power through the days to do list. We want more energy to exercise more or run after the kids and grandkids. In this quest for more energy, many of us reach for stimulants such as coffee, sugar or energy drinks to keep us going.

Energy – something most of us crave and could use more of! We often wish we had more energy to get us through the day and power through the days to do list. We want more energy to exercise more or run after the kids and grandkids. In this quest for more energy, many of us reach for stimulants such as coffee, sugar or energy drinks to keep us going. Luckily, though, this isn’t the only option and there are some natural alternatives to give your energy that desired boost.
In addition to managing stress effectively, streamlining or lightening our workload, trying to add some exercise to our day and eating a balanced healthy diet, there are some supplements that may help. B-vitamins, for example, play a vital role in the production of energy in our cells. When considering something to boost your energy, why not try the Super B 50 to provide enough B-vitamins to support energy production. If stress is an issue and you need something to help calm your nerves while boosting your energy, the Everyday Stress Relief B Complex could be just the thing. Our Everyday Stress Relief B Complex contains the nourishing benefits of oats and the calming support of passionflower, this supplement provides the support we need to cope with the everyday stresses of life.
Another nutrient essential to energy production inside our cells is Coenzyme Q10. In fact, fatigue could be one of the signs that your body is low in this nutrient. For energy support try our CoQ10 150mg One-A-Day Get Up & Go. Charge your inner battery cells and put that spring back in your step with this nutrient and like the name says Get Up & GO!
How can supplements give me more energy?
Along with maintaining an active lifestyle, a healthy sleep routine and managing stress levels, our range of energy supplements are rich in essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that assist with energy production. Many of the products in our range are enriched with B-vitamins — this helps transform the food you eat into energy that your cells can store and use. Vitamins like B12 also keep your body’s nerves and blood cells healthy, preventing anemia that can result in tiredness and weakness. To support healthy energy production and reduce fatigue, many of our energy supplements also contain CoQ10 — an essential nutrient that is naturally produced by the body and plays a vital role in energy production.
Can I take these supplements with coffee?
Given caffeine can impair the absorption and facilitate the excretion of B-vitamins, it’s best to wait an hour after your morning coffee to take your energy supplements. Caffeine also increases urination which can impact the concentration of these essential vitamins.
Do I need a doctor's prescription to take an energy supplement?
No. When creating our energy supplements range, we consulted with a team of professional naturopaths and other industry experts to ensure we provided our customers with all the essential vitamins and nutrients they need to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. While you do not need a doctor’s prescription to incorporate energy supplements into your diet, if you are concerned, we recommend you consult your GP or a health professional for further advice. You can also check out our blogs or get in contact with our team if you need additional information or guidance.
Is it safe to take these supplements if I am an athlete?
While supplements containing essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients can be a safe way for athletes to increase their energy levels and improve performance, speaking to a medical expert before incorporating these into your daily diet is crucial. You also want to ensure the energy supplements you choose do not interact with any prescription or over-the-counter medications you may be taking.
Are these supplements safe to take if I am pregnant or lactating?
Given that most experts advise against energy drinks and excessive amounts of coffee during pregnancy and lactation, incorporating an energy supplement into your diet is a safe and effective way to decrease fatigue and improve energy levels. The supplements we offer at Australian NaturalCare are rich in essential vitamins and nutrients your body naturally produces, so they’re safe for long-term consumption.
