Let’s be honest – day to day life can be tiring. Often, there’s too much to do in too little time, and we find ourselves lacking the energy we need to accomplish it all. In turn, many of us turn to caffeinated drinks that provide a quick burst of energy – but leave you crashing, and feeling even more sluggish once they wear off.
But did you know, there’s a plethora of herbs, functional mushrooms and vital minerals that can naturally supplement your energy levels from the inside, out?
The more you learn about earth’s own medicine, the more you can put it to good use! So here, we’re diving deep into how CBD oil and energy levels collide, and the top 10 natural herbs, vitamins and minerals, you can turn to for sustainable energy you can feel good about.
How CBD Energy Works
Like most CBD effects, CBD oil and energy levels is in its infancy of research. From real-time use, and anecdotal evidence, however, experts believe CBD energy and focus is attainable. How?
When consuming CBD and full-spectrum hemp compounds, they interact with our body’s endocannabinoid system. A system that’s responsible for maintaining ‘homeostasis’ or the feeling of optimal health.
To do so, the endocannabinoid system is made up of neurotransmitters or receptors that send messages to and from other systems, regulating physiological functions. Like, digestive functions, mood and pain regulation, and most importantly for CBD energy – the wake and sleep cycle.
But hemp and CBD aren’t the only natural compounds that are showing capabilities of boosting energy levels. To keep learning, next we’ll cover the 10 most popular and potent energy stimulating minerals and herbs.
10 Natural Herbs for Energy
Now, let’s get to know the other most prominent natural herbs for energy, beyond hemp and CBD.
NAD+ is a critical and naturally occurring coenzyme found in every human cell. The coenzyme is pivotal in the body’s ability to produce energy and maintain energy levels throughout the body at all times. It’s important to know that NAD+ levels decline as we age, which causes our cells to become less effective at producing energy. Hence, why, you may feel more fatigued as you age, or why age affects susceptibility to chronic conditions and diesease.
D-Ribose is a form of simple sugar, or carbohydrate, that our bodies produce naturally. It naturally replenishes cells and is a key component of ATP, also known as adenosine triphosphate, your cells’ primary energy source. Although your body produces ribose naturally, D-ribose supplements are proving to fight fatigue, boost energy, and improve blood flow to the heart.
Cordyceps is a beneficial fungi that’s been used for centuries in Asia for its natural ability to boost energy, relieve stress, and protect the liver and respiratory system.
It’s likely you’ve heard of Ashwagandha by now, as it’s been trending recently for its immune system support and stress-relieving properties. But, did you know that the natural herb is proving to boost energy too? The herb is produced by evergreen shrubs that grow in Asia and Africa, and is a primary herb used by Ayurveda, a form of alternative medicine based on Indian principles.
Eleuthero, or what’s sometimes called Siberian ginseng, comes from a woody shrub native to Asia that’s often used as an adaptogen, which is ‘a class of substances that are believed to stimulate the body’s resistance to physical, environmental, and emotional stressors.’ The substance and its inner compounds are proving to help protect and enhance immunity by improving the body’s use of oxygen – especially during exercise or activity.
Schisandra is a native vine plant to northern China that produces magnolia berries, or five-flavor-fruit. Throughout civilization, the fruit has been eaten as medicine and modern-day Research shows it may help improve athletic performance through its power to build strength, reduce fatigue, and naturally enhance energy levels.
Folate is a type of B vitamin that is essential for its part in red and white blood cell production, and the transformation of carbohydrates into energy. Being deficient in folate can not only cause fatigue, but may also cause muscle weakness, vision problems, depression, or general brain fog or confusion.
Another vitamin to supplement energy levels is Vitamin B12. Why? Because B12 plays a distinct role in metabolism in every cell of the human body.
Bitter Orange is a fruit-bearing tree native to Asia and contains an ingredient called synephrine, which is similar to ephedra. It works as a stimulant that may help improve athletic performance, and elevate energy levels overall.
Last but not least, FoTI, which is also known as Chinese climbing knotweed or “he shou wu,” is considered an ancient civilization energy tonic that helps to treat and prevent conditions related to aging.
