Top 10 Supplements to Boost Energy

Dr. Edward Group | GlobalHealingCenter

One of the most common health complaints today often revolve around having too little energy. Feeling tired is a normal and natural signal that tells you it’s time for sleep, and getting a full night’s rest may be all that is needed for relieving any fatigue that may be plaguing you. A chronic state of fatigue, however, represents a much bigger issue. Considering that energy is a cellular function dependent on the vitamins and minerals you consume each day, consistent low energy levels typically indicates a cellular imbalance.


When cells are receiving the energy they need, you in turn feel energized. When cells struggle to produce energy, they suffer damage or die, leaving you drained. That’s why exercise, regular colon and liver cleansing, and eating an organic, natural diet energizes the body and keeps the mind sharp. Some other energy-stimulating activities include massage and drinking enough water to hydrate and flush the system. Hormone balance also plays a role in energy creation, with fatigue being one of the primary symptoms of a hormonal imbalance.

10 Supplements That May Increase Energy

While the morning latte or black coffee does have health benefits, these beverages do absolutely nothing for improving energy. Yes, caffeine stimulates, but it also stresses the adrenal glands and endocrine system. Energy drinks rely heavily on sugar and other short-term stimulants, like caffeine. Similarly to the effects of sugar in candy, cereal, and other nutritionally-deficient snacks, chronic caffeine consumption results in energy crashes and dependence. Constant energy relies on three key factors: sleep, exercise, and eating natural, organic food. For a bigger boost, you may want to try any one of these 10 supplements to help the body clear out the toxin overload.

1. Iodine

Hormones regulate metabolism and initiate the release of the many biochemicals associated with energy creation. The thyroid uses iodine to form triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), the two hormones which regulate all other hormones. The best dietary sources of iodine include seafood, sea vegetables (dulse seaweed, arame, kombu, and wakame), and dark leafy greens. Iodine supplements can also be taken. The best and most bioavailable supplements are colloidal or nascent iodine, such as Detoxadine®.

2. Vitamin B12

Every cell in the human body requires B12 for energy metabolism. In fact, the entire cellular energy creation, known as the Citric Acid cycle or Kreb’s cycle, depends on it. Unfortunately, the human body cannot create B12 on its own, requiring it from dietary sources. Clams, mussels, red meat, and dairy are the best natural sources of B12. Supplementing with B12 is safe as no side effects or upper dietary limit exists. The best supplement forms are methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, both of which are found in Vegansafe™ B-12.

3. Melatonin

The hormone melatonin is released from the pineal gland and directly influences energy metabolism. Individuals with inadequate melatonin levels suffer from fatigue and accelerated brain aging. Research also indicates melatonin levels impact gene activation and the effects of genes on health. [1] Fortunately, the pineal gland produces melatonin in response to the onset of nighttime darkness. Research indicates sleeping with lights on disrupts melatonin production. If sleep is inconsistent, a melatonin imbalance may occur which can disrupt energy levels, blood sugar, and even weight.

4. Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo has long-been known for its powerful antioxidant activity and for improving blood flow. A review by the Neurobiology Laboratory for Brain Aging and Mental Health in Switzerland suggests it also improves mitochondrial respiration and ATP (cellular energy) production in brain cells. [2] This normalizes metabolic activity at the cellular level, protecting the cells and promoting health and longevity. When looking for supplements, look for those with the fewest fillers.


5. CoQ10 in Cell Fuzion™

Coenzyme Q10 plays a vital role in the process of cellular energy creation. Every cell in the body contains CoQ10, although organs like the heart, kidneys, and liver have higher concentrations. Still, a deficiency can result. As an electron transfer molecule in cellular metabolism, it neutralizes free radicals, reducing its availability to assist with energy creation. Fatigue is one of the top symptoms of CoQ10 deficiency, although high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, and blood sugar imbalance may also appear. [3] Supplements such as Cell Fuzion™ may provide the best materials necessary for increasing CoQ10 levels.

6. Androtrex® and Female Fuzion™

Hormone imbalances lead to fatigue and exhaustion. In today’s world of environmental toxins and poor dietary options, balancing hormones is becoming more or less a juggling act. Herbs such as Tribulus terrestris, ashwagandha, tongkat ali, and muira puama support endocrine organs such as the ovaries, testes, thyroid, pancreas, and adrenal glands. Each of these herbs can be found as individual supplements; however, the complementary effect each has makes herbal blends such as Androtrex® (for men) and Female Fuzion™ an ideal supplement choice.

7. Acetyl L-carnitine

Another biochemical necessary for energy metabolism, L-carnitine transports fatty acids into the mitochondria for conversion into energy. Acetyl groups also play an integral role in mitochondrial energy creation. While the body naturally creates acetyl L-carnitine, also called ALCAR, the body will use this biochemical to support and protect the brain. Supplementing with ALCAR ensures the body has enough acetyl groups for energy metabolism and neural health.

    Braggs Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is amazing too. I take a shot every morning and down it with juice. Thank you Dr. Group. Your detox foot pads RULE!
