One of the biggest problems I hear about is lack of energy. The solution is not always the same because there could be many reasons why a person is tired.

For example you might not sleep well, and wake frequently during the night, A Vogel Dormeasan is a herbal remedy that may help you to get a better sleep.

Stress affects your digestion. So although you may have a great diet, stress can affect how you digest and absorb the nutrients that you have eaten. Take digestive enzymes, B vitamins, or Rhodiola to help your body cope with the effects of stress. It might be that you simply have too many things to do, and not enough time to do them. Rest might not be an option. In this case a good multi vitamin along with Rhodiola would help.

Fatigue is a symptom of low iron, you might benefit from an iron tonic like Floradix. It might be a good time to have a check-up and have your blood checked.

Look at your diet and ask yourself if it has a mix of all the nutrients required for health. This will include foods that provide carbohydrates, protein, good quality fats and oil, fibre, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and trace elements. You need balance. If you avoid a food group ask yourself what nutrients does it provide, and have I got a substitute food in place of it. Reduce processed foods like white bread, biscuits, cakes, bars, jars of sauce, and sugary foods. These are energy depleting foods. Increase fish, meat, nuts and seeds, good quality grains, good quality oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and rapeseed oil. Increase vegetables including salads, and sea vegetables. Increase fruit, especially berries.

Tiredness is a symptom of food intolerance, take note of how you feel after food. Do you feel good or do you feel bad? This is a good indicator of what you should eat.
