Whether you're in need of a mid-morning pick me up or suffering from a mid-afternoon slump, there are times when we all need an energy boost.

Here are 5 simple ways to fight fatigue, supercharge your energy naturally and rev you back up to speed.

  1. Have an energizing snack. Food, after all, is energy, so it makes sense that eating something will help you feel more alert. But don't reach for something in the vending machine. Go for some healthy, complex carbohydrates mixed with protein—that way the food will be digested quickly (giving you instant energy) but will also give you a boost until around until dinner. A few options: whole-grain cereal with milk, raw veggies (think carrots and celery sticks) and cheese cubes, or an apple with peanut butter.
  2. Skip the latte. You might be tempted to get some coffee, but caffeine this late in the day can impact your night’s sleep. Go for green tea instead —it has less caffeine and is packed with antioxidants.
  3. Keep Hydrated: Being dehydrated can make you feel more sluggish than normal, so keep a large jug at your desk. Guzzle a few cups in the morning, refill the bottle at lunchtime, and then sip on a few cups in the afternoon.
  4. Get some exercise: This does two important things: It gets your heart rate up, which gives you energy, and exposes you to sunlight, which can help you feel more alert.
  5. Love Your Gut: Many of us are tired and fatigued due to a lack of iron. But we combat the lack of energy with convenience, fast-food - usually high in sugar. Love Your Gut powder is made up of Diatomaceous earth which is super-rich in absorbable iron. 

Long-lasting, slow-release energy. No need to get a punishing sugar hit. That energy is just hollow and empty calories. The iron in Love Your Gut powder and Golden Gut blend is absorbed and released naturally when your body needs it.

Meet your daily iron needs naturally. It’s way better to get your iron from a whole food rather than an iron supplement. 

Love Your Gut powder and Golden Gut blend helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. They do this not only through the iron but by contributing to:

Normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.

Normal oxygen transport in the body.

Normal cognitive function.

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your morning or afternoon. Try stirring a spoonful of Golden Gut into your tea, warm milk of your choice, or chai lattes. This gut-loving, naturally energising and anti-inflammatory blend of turmeric, spices and Love Your Gut diatomaceous earth is a treat for your tastebuds and your tummy. ⠀
