Increasing energy without reaching for a sugar-high. Natural solutions to the age old desire for more energy.

This week we read that tired Britons will spend £1.5 million on sports and energy drinks this year, despite the associated health problems brought on by the extremely high caffeine and sugar content.

Fifty-four per cent of people claim that they often feel tired. When you feel tired and run down you are easily irritated and your zest for life disappears. It is understandable then, that hundreds of us look for a quick fix – which might be an energy drink.

There are alternative solutions to tiredness and fatigue; we don’t have to live on a rollercoaster of artificial energy highs and lows.

So what do you need for that extra boost?

Vitamin B12

Notoriously hard to absorb but crucial for those energy levels, B12 plays an important part in red blood cell formation and has been proven to help reduce tiredness and fatigue. Our main dietary source of this vitamin is meat, fish, milk and eggs, so vegetarians and vegans can be particularly vulnerable to insufficiency.

An easy way to ensure you get enough B12 is with Boost B12 oral spray. The sublingual delivery mechanism ensures it is delivered directly into the bloodstream avoiding processing by the digestive system. Just four sprays daily guarantees your levels are topped up – a really easy and efficient way to supplement.


Perhaps not the first thing to spring to mind for energy levels as magnesium is known for its relaxation qualities, but it makes the world of difference. If you don’t have enough magnesium you can’t produce adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), which is the primary currency of energy in the body.

If your levels are low and you are feeling sluggish you need to get magnesium into your body fast! Magnesium Oil Original spray is the quickest way to do this.

Maca, ginkgo biloba and suma – food sourced solutions

Three solutions that all pack an energetic punch. These botanicals are proven to enhance the body’s metabolism, reduce temporary feelings of tiredness and increase sexual alertness, as well as improving overall energy, mood and vitality.
