Vitality Boost

In the winter it’s common to feel low on energy, the sun rarely shines and you are often stuck indoors for much of the day. Good job that spring is on the way.

L

ow energy is one of the most common problems that nutritional therapists are asked for help with, from chronic fatigue at one extreme to managing the notorious mid-morning and afternoon energy slumps, Karen Maude, Nutritional Therapist tells us.

Breakfast Choose a dish that contains protein and slow releasing energy such as porridge to keep

The good news is that you don’t have to wait for the sun to come out to get that spring back in your step. Here’s a taste of what a nutritional therapist might r ecommend in an energy boosting plan:

low levels can have a significant impact on mood and energy. It’s not surprising then that 1 in 5 of us are deficient. Food sources include oily fish and eggs, but generally it’s difficult to maintain adequate levels during the winter. Government advice is to supplement 10μg daily, but this may not be adequate for all so testing is advisable. Consult with a nutritional therapist to optimise your dose. Hydration Sometimes it’s the simple things that we miss. Don’t forget to drink 2 litres of water over the course of the day to keep yourself hydrated. You’ll find you think more clearly and feel more vibrant if you can keep on top of fluids. Herbal teas count, but coffee and tea don’t.

you feeling alert and full for hours. Pop frozen fruit in with the porridge right before the end of cooking and finish off with a sprinkle of mixed seeds for more energy boosting nutrients. Vitamin D Vitamin D is a hormone produced when skin is exposed to sunlight and www.elitemagazine.co.uk

This is just a taster of the many strategies nutritional therapists offer to help you thrive.
