In addition to escalating rates of numerous illnesses and diseases, people everywhere are experiencing a huge plummet in energy levels – and it isn’t all due to lack of sleep. This lack of energy is leading many individuals to opt out of daily activities, ultimately leading to increased stress levels. While a lack of energy is almost always a symptom of another much deeper issue, there are ways you can naturally boost energy levels. Instead of buying a 5-hour energy or another energy drink at your local supermarket or pharmacy, try implementing some natural energy boosters to amp up your day.
Natural Energy Boosters
Stimulants like caffeine, providing a kick, also place strain on the body’s adrenal cortex, leading it to work harder to produce energy. Ginseng can act as a stimulant similar to how caffeine does, but without any added stress. Ginseng helps to feed the adrenal cortex by offering nutrients it needs to create stress-free energy.
Individuals often lack energy because their body is unable to break down food efficiently. Digestive enzymes help to break down proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and fiber, leading to the body’s ability to utilize vitamins and nutrients. Without being able to properly and efficiently break down food, your body can’t turn food into energy – digestive enzymes help your body to produce energy by breaking down these nutrients. As you age, your body slowly loses it’s ability to produce enzymes, so supplementing with digestive enzymes becomes more important as we age.
By age 40, the average person has an estimated 10 to 20 pounds of compacted fecal matter stuck in the intestinal tract – this can cause a huge surge of tiredness and leave you feeling lethargic. This is a result of undigested food buildup, mostly from dairy and meat products. Left to rot, the compacted matter often compromises the health of the colon, which severely hinders your ability to fight off disease and operate on normal levels. If you have never cleansed your colon before, it is long overdue.
Among some great natural energy boosters, fasting can be an excellent method for cleansing the body and providing energy. The body spends up to one-third of its energy on digestion and elimination, and with the average American diet being what it is, it is no wonder that most people have digestion issues. By avoiding solid foods, or by engaging in a fruit fast or vegetable fast, you are essentially giving your body a rest and enabling it to cleanse and work more properly overall. In addition, toxins are being released, improving overall health and energy levels.
A similar herb to Ginseng – a vital adaptogenic herb in Ayurvedic medicine – Ashwagandha can be great for increasing energy levels. Going byThe Herb Companion, taking one to two teaspoons twice or three times daily of this shrub extract (which equates to about a 500 mg capsule of ashwagandha three times daily)- is more than enough to obtain its energy-boosting power.
It is crucial choose natural sources over energy drinks for an energy boost. Consuming sports and energy drinks is comparable to ‘bathing your teeth with acid’ according to scientists who have unleashed their findings on how these beverages may be destroying the health of your teeth. Natural energy boosters like the ones listed above will not only provide energy, but will also help to boost overall health without any harsh chemicals or side-effects.

The claimed amounts of 10-20 lbs of "compacted fecal material" residing in the colons of people over 40, is bogus. Where are your peer-reviewed studies to back this up? Anecdotal reports don't cut it with me.
I disagree that impacted matter in the colon is as prevalent as you might think. Therapists I have worked with in the past have said they have never seen a single case in real life in their entire practice. Someone tried to scam me whilst I was a student, and told me I had impacted waste so severe that it would take 50 treatments, one a week for a 'discounted' rate of £40 a time, and that was ten years ago. I never had more than one treatment of colonic irrigation from this therapist; yet a few months later, when I had a proper scan of my bowel done, which I watched on a large full colour TV, as a camera was inserted on a scope along the full length of my descending, transverse and ascending large colon, there was not even a speck of faecal matter along the entire length. Had I believed the 'kind' rip off merchant, I would be £2,000 lighter.
Impacted deposits may occur only in very rare cases, in the extremely decrepit in their 80's or so who have some disease of the bowel leading to wasting of tissue, or in some bedridden 40 stone 'shut in' pizza monster, but not in real life in people with normal physical construction who are not suffering some chronic wasting disease of the bowel. Spend your cash more wisely. Grow your own food organically using organic compost and basalt rock dust for re-mineralization of your soil, and prevent most disease naturally. Dr Samuel Epstein said 95% of all disease was preventable by eating food that contained proper mineral content. Mike Adams recently reported that an apple today has only 3% of the mineral content of one grown in 1916, hence much of the disease today. Only food grown on such soil regularly re-enriched by basalt or other suitable rock dust can provide you with that. Rare minerals like praseodymium, neodymium, etc. are demonstrated in lab tests to double the lifespans of animals, and NPK chemical fertilizers that all non-organic farmers use don't give you that. The planet is largely made of the stuff, so it is pretty easy to obtain; it is the same grey rock they use for chippings on the roads, though there are many grades of basalt and you must choose wisely from a good supplier who has measured the specific mineralogy of the particular rock they sell; some will not give the results you need.
Your opinion makes sense. Thanks.
If you're interested in natural energy, look up ATP and how its produced in the body. I take a supplement called "Shroom Tech Sport" for daily energy, endurance, and fast recovery when working out. It utilizes the cordyceps mushroom as well as other nutrients to bring you clean cellular energy through the production of ATP…. rather than stimulant-based energy like caffeine. ATP is the body's natural energy source! It also helps regulate the way your body utilizes oxygen so you can keep pushing yourself longer. Check it out at this link.
