Energy

A lack of energy often reflects specific vitamin deficiencies. Monitoring and maintaining sufficient vitamin levels can dramatically increase energy levels and stamina. Instead of drinking coffee or taking other stimulants, taking vitamins along with a healthy alkaline diet can promote healthy boosts of energy while taking them on a daily basis . . .

Nutrients

Many Bevko customers take Buffered C, B-Complex, Energy & Repair, and MultiVitamin Forte on a daily basis in order to help with energy.

The B vitamins are vital to the production of red blood cells in the body. Decreased red blood cell production leads to anemia. When there are insufficient red blood cells the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood is compromised, resulting in decreased stamina and general fatigue. Additionally, the B vitamins are important in obtaining energy from the food we consume. Finally, since B vitamins are necessary for proper muscle function, a deficiency can contribute to a feeling of weakness.

Minerals affect thousands of reactions in the body. Magnesium in particular is important in energy production and is also involved in muscle function. The amino acid glutamine, which is included in Bevko’s Energy & Repair supplements, is a building block for important nutrients such as glucose. Glucose is the principle supplier of energy to the body.

An Alkaline Diet

Diet is one of the most important factors for a healthy lifestyle and sufficient daily energy. Diet plays an important part in providing your body with the nutrients it needs in order to promote daily energy and stamina. Bevko recommends following an alkaline diet, which is highly recommended as a healthy way to eat [see Food Chart on Daily Health page for a reference]. An alkaline diet is important because our bodies are supposed to be slightly alkaline, but the modern diet creates a state in which most people have an acidic environment. An acidic environment develops when we eat mostly acidic foods: too much animal protein, sugar, caffeine, and processed foods. These foods can deplete the body of vitamins and minerals, including calcium and magnesium, which are important to health. This depletion of minerals can cause a lack of energy, and a feeling of fatigue and apathy throughout daily life. Along with this type of diet, be sure to drink 8-10 glasses of pure water daily in order to keep the body sufficiently hydrated.

Lifestyle

As important as nutrient supplementation and diet are, the prescription for increasing energy would not be complete without recommending an active lifestyle. Regular exercise, preferably at least 30 minutes three days a week, has been proven over and over again to increase energy and provide a general sense of well-being. It is also important to incorporate more movement into your daily life—like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or parking farther from the store. However, if you have been sedentary, be sure to consult your doctor before beginning an exercise program.

A combination of nutrient supplementation, careful dietary habits, and increased exercise is the recipe for increasing energy in your day-to-day life.
