7 SUPPLEMENTS TO HELP COMBAT “THE MONDAYS”
Ask anyone, and they’ll tell you a time where they heard that and thought something along the lines of, “Ugh, no it’s not.” You’re tired, you feel a lack of motivation and the thought of the weekend being as far away as possible simply makes you cringe and contemplate stomping your feet with frustration. Have no fear—it’s just The Mondays, and we all catch it now and again.
It’s time to take back your Mondays! Try implementing these 7 supplements into your routine to help put more pep in your step during the work week.**
1. Vitamin B-12
Ah, the energy vitamin! B-12 has been popular for years due to its key role in energy metabolism in the body. Unfortunately, it is also a vitamin that many people are lacking. Without a sufficient supply of B-12, you may feel fatigued, cranky or just downright worn down. Incorporating this vitamin into your regimen can promote your body’s peak energy production, in addition to helping optimize your cardiovascular health and maintaining nervous system health.**
Naturally found in each and every cell in your body, NADH is a reduced antioxidant form of Vitamin B-3. Why do we love it for kicking Monday’s butt? NADH performs at the cellular level, working to ease the effects of mental and physical fatigue such as overall weakness, malaise, exhaustion and—this one is the kicker—lack of concentration.** To put it simply, utilize NADH to help recharge your brain and boost those feel-good transmitters!**
Thiamine (more commonly known as vitamin B-1) is an essential nutrient, which means our bodies can neither create nor store a surplus of this vitamin. That being said, this vitamin can be easily depleted within our bodies, which has typically been associated with diminished energy and cloudy moods.** Thiamine plays a key role in energy production by helping to metabolize proteins, fats & carbohydrates from the food you eat, and may also help with stress management—which is why incorporating thiamine into your regimen may help take the ugh out of Mondays!**
4. Royal Jelly
Is there anything better than superfoods? Royal Jelly is one of the most popular, considered by many cultures around the world to be an ultimate health food. Royal jelly is produced by honey bees for the queen of the hive and offers a rich plethora of B-complex vitamins, proteins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids & carbohydrates. Its generous supply of B-complex vitamins are what makes royal jelly famous as an all-around energizing supplement—plus, nothing makes you feel like a queen or king quite like food created for royalty!**
Now here’s a plant that’s gained some recognition within recent years! Ginseng has been used for its wellness benefits for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Asian and Native American practices. Its popularity stems from its energizing and stress-relieving properties.** It is believed that ginseng can help your body adapt to and resist physical, emotional and chemical stress in addition to assisting in cognitive function, overall stamina and whole well-being.**
Known as the “eye-opening stimulant,” guarana has been used as a source of energy for centuries due to its high level of caffeine—an even higher amount per guarana berry than per coffee bean! It also supplies a rich amount of alkaloids that further enhance its stimulating properties.** Utilizing guarana supplements may promote mental awareness, sharp focus and peak energy, making it a great consideration to help add more pep to your step.**
Often mispronounced, yet highly popularized, açaí (ah-SIGH-ee) berry has been used for generations for its energizing and overall wellness-promoting benefits.** It is often seen in energy drinks and bars, adding its delicious chocolate-blueberry-like flavor along with its natural energy promoting properties.** The berry is also jam-packed with antioxidants, helping to fend your body from free radicals.** So, to summarize: açaí’s natural energy boosting power + deliciously memorable flavor = the perfect Monday mood kicker!**
