Feeling Blah? 3 Things to Power Up Your Cells

Whether youíre just feeling blasť or have a full-blown energy management disorder like chronic fatigue syndrome, your cells may need an energy boost. After all, letís face it: managing millions, if not billions of cellular and chemical functions in your body takes a lot of energy.

Within every cell there is a microscopic energy factory known as mitochondria. When the energy factories lack the raw materials they need to function properly, your cells simply wonít have sufficient energy to perform their daily functions. So, what can you do to give your mitochondria, and by extension your cells, an energy boost? Here are three things that can supercharge your cellular energy:

B Complex Vitamins

There are several vitamins collectively known as B-complex vitamins. These nutrients play a critical role as helpers (coenzymes) in cellular chemical processes. They also play an essential role in cellular energy production. Without adequate amounts of even just a single B vitamin, your cells will lack the energy they need to perform their myriad functions.

The main B vitamins involved in energy production include: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5) and B12. The latter is frequently called the energy vitamin. Most people notice that adding a B complex supplement of either 50 or 100 milligrams daily to their health plan is enough to experience a boost in energy levels. Some of the B vitamins, like B12 for example, are measured in micrograms instead of milligrams. Supplement manufacturers adjust accordingly. If taking these nutrients individually, be sure to adjust accordingly as well. In other words, take 100 micrograms instead of milligrams. B complex vitamins are found in many foods like green leafy vegetables, brown rice, root vegetables, pumpkin seeds and beans. Donít take B complex vitamins too late in the day if youíre prone to insomnia since they do have an energizing quality.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

In the same way that B vitamins act as coenzymes to ensure the smooth functioning of most of the bodyís cellular processes, so too does CoQ10.† While coenzyme Q10 helps boost the energy of many of the bodyís cells, it has strong validation for use as a brain energy rejuvenator and even shows promise in the treatment of brain diseases like Parkinsonís and Alzheimerís disease.

The mitochondria of the cells depend on CoQ10 to boost energy for every cellular function in the body. Unfortunately, this nutrient can become depleted as we age or experience health issues. Coenzyme is available in both supplement and lozenge forms. Most nutritional practitioners recommend 100 mg daily; however, those people suffering with energy management disorders (such as chronic fatigue syndrome) or brain diseases may need higher amounts.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

One of the most powerful antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid, is able to pass through the fatty cellular membranes to protect the cellular power centers from damage so they are better able to function smoothly and efficiently, cranking out the energy our bodies need to function. As if that wasnít enough reason to love alpha lipoic acid, this powerful nutrient is also the queen of recycling in the body. It recycles all of the other antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E to ensure they are able to protect the cells long after they would have normally expired. A typical dose of alpha lipoic acid is 100 mg dailyóideally in divided doses morning and evening.

I am a 77-year-old lady. My Parkinson's disease appeared at the age of 55. My symptoms at the beginning were fine tremors and rigidity with joint stiffness. I was taking Entacapone with Levodopa, Carbidopa, and Pramipexole. My Parkinson's disease is not under control. I lost touch with reality.I started on Health Herbal Clinic Parkinsons Disease Herbal formula treatment in September 2016, i read alot of positive reviews on their success rate treating Parkinsons disease through their PD Herbal formula and i immediately started on the treatment. Just 7 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with speech and coordination, my hand tremors seized and the stiffed, rigid muscle had succumbed. I am unbelievably back on my feet again, this is a breakthrough for all Parkinsons sufferers, visit Health Herbal Clinic official website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email info@ healthherbalclinic. net.
