Energizing your life
An active, healthy lifestyle requires at least one thing in abundance – energy. It’s what makes us, and the world, go round. In fact, energy is absolutely essential for our existence.
We obtain the energy we need from the fats, carbohydrates and protein obtained from food. After ingestion, these nutrients are converted to ATP (adenosine triphosphate), our body’s specialized form of chemical energy that powers almost everything we do. In addition, in order to make ATP and use the energy from food, certain key nutrients are required.
Ideally we get all the energy we need from a healthy, well-rounded diet. Regular exercise also plays a huge role in maintaining energy. But with less-than-perfect diets, sedentary lifestyles, high stress levels, exposure to pollutants and toxins, and other factors, many people are finding it harder and harder to maintain natural energy levels throughout the day. The vast number of energy products available today is a testament to our ongoing need for energy.
Most of the “energy” products available today contain caffeine or other substances that are stimulants. While they do a good job of providing an initial boost of energy, once they wear off you can be left feeling even more run-down than you did before taking them. This is because they do nothing to address the underlying causes for low energy, one of the biggest of which is poor nutrition.
When it comes to getting an energy boost, nutritional status can make or break you. If you’re not getting the nutrients you need from food, then your body, and many body systems, are lacking in the raw materials necessary to produce energy. And you’re dragging through each day wondering where your energy went.
Thankfully there are quite a few energy supplements available today that can help naturally boost your energy levels and support healthy, normal energy production when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.*
- Panax Ginseng - For more than 2,000 years, the roots of Panax plants have been valued in Chinese herbalism for their invigorating, adaptogenic, and tonic properties.* As a result of its long history of use, Panax Ginseng has been studied extensively by modern scientists and it has been found to possess hundreds of compounds, including ginsenosides, phenolics, and saccharides that contribute to its biological activity.*
- American Ginseng - American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) has been used by traditional herbalists for centuries. Recent scientific data confirm the presence of bioactive compounds in American Ginseng, known as Ginsenosides, which confer this herb’s adaptogenic properties.*
- Maca - Maca (Lepidium meyenii) (Organic Powder, 500 mg Veg Capsules, 750 mg Raw Veg Capsules) is grown at high elevations in the Andes region of Central Peru. It has been traditionally used for centuries as a food source and as a general energy tonic. More recent scientific research suggests that Maca may help to support a healthy reproductive life for both men and women.* Clinical data indicate that Maca does not exert a direct effect on endocrine function.*
- Thyroid Energy™ - Our Thyroid Energy™ formula is a complete nutritional supplement for the support of a healthy thyroid gland.* We’ve combined iodine and tyrosine, the two integral constituents necessary for the synthesis of thyroid secretions.* The minerals selenium, zinc and copper have been added as cofactors needed for normal thyroid function.* In addition, NOW® Thyroid Energy™ contains the Ayurvedic herbal extracts from Guggul (Commiphora mukul) and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) to complement its nutritional support components.
