Natural Solutions For Daily Energy

kidsWhy is it that so many of my important meetings seem to get scheduled in the early afternoon? That is just about the time I find my daily energy draining, my attention wandering and have more difficulty focusing. This is a topic my sister, Sheila, and I discuss quite a bit. She has 5 kids and has often wondered why school lets out just at that time of day when she finds her daily energy and concentration slowing down. Neither of us are fans of artificial stimulants or heavy caffeine users and wish we could find a natural solution to increase our daily energy level and be able to focus through the afternoon. Sheila used to say, “If we could just bottle my kids’ energy, we’d be set. Couldn’t find a more natural solution than that.”

Being interested in how mood and food are related, I have done the research on energy foods to find natural solutions for us to keep our daily energy up. Then I found a natural supplement that really helps with those afternoon slumps and how I feel physically overall. This mood food for the body combines the nutrients of blue-green algae with additional high-performance ingredients such as cordyceps mushrooms, gluten-free wheatgrass juice, green tea powder, bee pollen, turmeric, and noni. Here’s how these ingredients work to support daily energy.

Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) – provides essential fatty acids, complex sugars for energy, 13 vitamins, 23 minerals and trace minerals and all 20 amino acids. Helps sustain healthy cholesterol levels due to ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids.

Turmeric – A spice high in curcumin which some studies indicate can be useful in treating and preventing Alzheimer’s.

Cordyceps Mushrooms – Used in Chinese medicine to treat a variety of conditions including to boost energy and endurance. Acts as an antioxidant and may help increase blood flow to certain body organs which improves the body’s oxygen use.

Wheatgrass Juice – This juice made from the grass of the wheat plant is rich in chlorophyll and has been found to increase mental clarity and energy.

Noni – From the fruit of the Indian mulberry, has been known to enhance energy.

Phycocyanin – extracted from blue-green microalgae, it provides strong antioxidant activity and studies have been conducted showing this nutrient is beneficial in maintaining brain function.

Green Tea – rich in flavonols, polyphenols, and EGCG (powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals). It is a natural source of caffeine.

Bee Pollen – Has been used to enhance energy. Also, allergies are one thing that can cause brain fog. Bee pollen taken regularly has been helpful to many people in controlling allergy symptoms.

I can see now how this unique formula works and I have found it helps me stay alert and focused throughout the day. I’m recommending it to Sheila. I think this daily energy brain food is just what we’ve been wishing for.
