Are you someone that gets plenty of sleep each night, but you still wake up tired the next day? Do you rely on coffee or other caffeinated beverages to help you get going in the morning? Do you eat right and exercise regularly but still suffer from low energy?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re definitely not alone. It seems a majority of adults these days suffer from fatigue and low energy. Just what’s going on and what can we do to feel more energized?
Common Causes of Low Energy
Here are some of the most common reasons many of us experience a lack of energy:
A Poor Diet
Probably the biggest reason people feel sluggish all the time is because they are not giving their bodies proper nutrition. Many people eat junk/processed foods laden with sugars and trans fats. These foods may give us a quick burst of energy, but eventually they lead to a big crash and no energy. Also, eating junk foods for long periods of time can ultimately lead to chronic inflammation and chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and hypertension.
You would be much better off eating a low carb diet consisting of whole foods, healthy fats and protein that give you steady energy all day long.
Allergies and Hay Fever
Many people suffer from seasonal allergies or environmental allergies. These not only make your eyes water and your throat itch, they can make you incredibly tired as well. If you think you suffer from allergies, it’s a good idea to get tested. This way you know EXACTLY what you may be allergic to so you can avoid those triggers if possible. You can also use natural or pharmaceutical treatments to keep allergy symptoms at bay.
Another common cause of fatigue is anemia, which more than 3 million Americans currently live with. Anemia is when your body does not have enough iron to make and transport red blood cells. Vegetarians, vegans and women with heavy menstrual cycles are particularly susceptible to anemia.
Iron supplements or eating more red meat is the best way to ensure you have enough iron in your diet.
Depression and Anxiety
Chronic stress and anxiety can ultimately lead to depression and low energy levels. This can be a result from your “fight or flight response” kicking out too many stress hormones. It can also be a result from not getting enough sleep. People battling depression or anxiety often have trouble getting a good night’s sleep.
Many people find relief from depression and anxiety through talk therapy and prescription medications. But there are natural remedies that may work for you such as changing your diet, exercising and practicing meditation.
How Our Golden Royal Honey May Help You Get Your Energy Back
Our Golden Royal Honey contains something called Royal Jelly. Royal jelly is a creamy white substance produced by nurse bees. It is full of nutrients and fed to the larva for their first few days of life. Royal jelly is also fed to the queen bee for her entire life. Eating it is what allows her to grow 10x as large as the other bees and live 10x as long.
Royal jelly has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine and contains a mixture of water, collagen, and numerous enzymes and hormones, as well as high amounts of essential vitamins and minerals. It contains all of the B vitamins, pantothenic acid and trace amounts of vitamin A, C, D and E.
All of these beneficial nutrients are what allow royal jelly to provide us with so many health benefits. Royal jelly has been found to naturally treat insomnia caused by depression and anxiety. It can also help you boost your immune system so you are not as susceptible to allergies and hay fever. Because it’s packed with vitamins and minerals, it can also help you fight those sugar cravings so you eat a more balanced diet that will fuel your cells.
