Herbal Remedies to Increase Vitality
Increase your overall vitality by following a healthy diet with infusions of herbal goodness to make you feel energised, optimistic and full of joie-de-vivre.
Having extra energy brings with it an increased zest for life; a lack of energy makes even everyday tasks seem like hard work. As well as being physically debilitating, it can make you feel quite depressed, as your mental and physical energy tend to mirror each other.
Revitalising Naturally – Herbs can help to increase your vitality, but it is also important to find out what is causing your energy dips. For example, if you’ve been unwell, you need to build yourself up and allow your body to recover, herbs such as echinacea can help to boost your system and speed up the healing process. A good diet and adequate exercise can increase your energy quotient and stimulate you both mentally and physically, leaving you feeling and looking sparkly and vital. Whatever your preference, you’ll find a way to revitalise yourself naturally.
Other Ways To Get A Boost – Make sure that you include plenty of energy boosting ingredients in your diet. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices, such as orange, apple, carrot and cranberry, help to cleanse toxins out of your system, and increase your vitamin intake. Eat at least five portions of fresh vegetables daily. Exercise regularly, even if this involves just a brisk walk each day; this increases your energy level, builds muscle tone and elevates your mood.
Counterproductive – Avoid foods with a high processed sugar content and artificially elevated levels of stimulants. Chocolate might make you feel more energetic, but this is temporary and brings a slump later, as your body’s blood sugar levels drop dramatically. The same can be said for commercial energy drinks, which contain extremely high levels of caffeine and artificial stimulants. Consuming these products for energy starts a cycle of low energy and poor diet, always leaving you needing more artificial supplements to give you that “extra boost”.
Squeezing your own orange juice in the morning will ensure your body gets all the freshest ingredients.
