Natural ways to increase energy levels
October 11 2016

Lack of energy is a common complaint. It can be transient or can be attributed to a definable organic illness. Some patients present with persistent and disabling energy deficiency, but show no abnormalities on physical examination or screening laboratory tests. In these cases, the diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) should be considered. CFS is characterized by debilitating fatigue with associated muscle aches, tender lymph nodes, joint pain, chills, feverish feelings, and postexertional malaise. Diagnosis is primarily by exclusion with no definitive laboratory test or physical findings. Medical research continues to examine the many possible etiologic agents for CFS (infectious, immunologic, neurologic, and psychiatric), but the answer remains elusive. Similarities with fibromyalgia exist and concomitant illnesses include irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and headaches. Therapy should include exercise, diet, good sleep hygiene, antidepressants, and other medications.
Lack of energy may be due to depression, lack of exercise, poor diet with lack of adequate protein, anemia, diabetes, hepatitis, thyroid disorders, malignancy, occult infections, autoimmune disorders, sleep apnea, or adrenal insufficiency.
If a full medical evaluation is completed and no major causes are found, certain supplements may be tried to increase energy levels.
Eat a healthy diet.

Use of maca herb
I am 38 year old guy from Finland. Lately I felt so tired everyday and so sleepy after taking lunch that I wanted to boost up my energy level. I have started to take maca powder every morning. I take 1 tea spoon in a warm glass of water with 2 table spoon of lemon juice and 1 table spoon of honey in empty stomach. I have taken for about 14 days. Now I have seen that the amount of my semen has decreased but density has increased. And the feeling during ejaculation has some how decreased. I am also using sesame oil for penis message to make my penis more healthy and to reduce the premature ejaculation. Is there any problem in the process I take Maca powder? Should increase the amount?
There are many ways to improve overall wellbeing and if one herb or nutrient is not working, it is a good idea to try another one.

Multivitamins for fatigue fighting
Does a multivitamin increase energy?
Some multivitamin supplements can increase energy. There are thousands of multivitamin products on the market, and each has a different effect on energy levels.

Combining many supplements to increase energy
I am an 82 year old Canadian male who is currently on daily doses of 6 mgs warfarin for atrial fibrillation, 5 mg caps of ramipril Altace and 1/2 tabs of 25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide for high blood pressure. I’ve survived surgery for bowel cancer at the Ileum and double abdominal aortal aneurysm stent insertion. My INR tests are stable at 2.1, I have a normal sleep pattern and a normal balanced diet, but sometimes experience a loss of energy after eating. For several years we have used a Canadian product called GeoForce. It gave a boost in energy and alertness when used prior to a meal. Our supplier has run out of stock and the manufacturer has gone out of business. The 100 mg GepForce capsules contained a proprietary mix of the following ingredients: Ginseng, Gingko Biloba, Kola Nut, Echinacea, Dulse, Fo Ti, Gotu Kola, American Century, Wood Betony, Cayenne and Garlic. From this list it is easy to see why it gave such an energy boost. It’s also easy to see why, considering the warfarin, I stopped taking them. I feel there must be another formulation which would give us the same effect without (for me) the unwanted side effects of blood thinning. I am writing to ask you if Mind Power Rx or any other of excellent product would do the job without the unwanted side effects.
It is difficult to predict the reaction of any supplement when combined with pharmaceutical medications or in those who have atrial fibrillation. One possible option is to use MultiVit Rx, if your doctor approves, at only half a capsule with breakfast. Those who have atrial fibrillation need to be cautious in using supplements and herbs since some of them can stimulate heart tissue to beat faster.

Can you give me any info on this Cylapril product? Does this energy pill really work?
We are not familiar with Cylapril. A google search reveals Cylopril contains pantothenic acid, a few B vitamins, certain herbs, and pregnenolone. The amount of pregnenolone in Cylapril is not listed. Pregnenolone can cause dangers when used in dosages greater than 10 mg, therefore it is of concern that the amount is not listed on the supplement fact panel.

Is the herb tongkat ali a good herb for energy enhancement? What about yohimbe?
This herb does enhance energy but also causes insomnia in high dosages which can cause fatigue the next day. For occasional use and in low dosages, it may be a good herb to boost energy levels.
Yohimbe herb may increase energy levels temporarily but it is not a good supplement for regular use in those who have fatigue.

I found this product Profiderall online while reading about supplements that can be used to enhance alertness and energy. I wanted to see if you guys have come across it and what your thoughts are. It seems to contain the items that many recommend to help boost alertness. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts and input.

Amino acids
I had an A Fib operation in 2006 and almost bled out. Darn doctor almost killed me! I am 75 but was very active until then and I have been weak and have lost all muscle tone. Tried to work out but just lost my breath. I read that the body needs 10 essential amino acids to recover strength and recuperation. Supplements never seem to agree with me, but I am just wasting away with no energy and fatigue. Is it true about the essential amino acids helping?
Treating fatigue is a lot more complicated than ingesting essential amino acids. A full medical examination and review is needed to determine the cause.

Testimonials
I’m a woman approaching 40. I’ve had a lot of trouble with having enough energy my entire life. When I was about 20 I learned that I was lactose intolerant and that helped with my stomach issues. Then I found out that I had reactive hypoglycemia. Since then, I have been very careful to only eat and drink foods that can be absorbed slowly into my bloodstream. That has helped my energy levels immensely. I also have the symptoms of ADD – brain fog and trouble concentrating. Vigorous exercise helps with that, but I’ve still searched for supplements that could further help. My experience with energizing herbs and supplements: Most herbs that are intended to help with energy actually make me feel very tired. My theory is that those herbs cause my body to release adrenalin and other chemicals/hormones in my own body but don’t help my body produce more of them, thus depleting me of those energy producing chemicals/hormones. I have reactive hypoglycemia and can’t tolerate caffeine. I wonder if that is related to the fatiguing effect I get from energizing herbs. I noticed years ago that caffeine makes me incredibly tired. When I told a friend this, she suggested that I try green tea, so I had one cup of green tea for three mornings in a row. By the third day I felt like I was a mother of 17 children working two jobs- I was horribly bone tired. Then I read that Andrew Weil recommended green tea except for people with reactive hypoglycemia, so it must not be just me. (I feel the same way if I eat even a little dark chocolate for a few days in a row.)

I am often tired with low energy, my doctor examined me completely and said there are no physical reasons for my low energy. All my blood tests are normal. I thought some vitamins may help me. Within two days of taking MultiVit Rx, my vitality returned. I think these vitamin pills are helpful.

“Energizing” herbs I’ve tried that made me tired:
Cordyceps – This one was the worst. I took one pill and felt that same horrible, run-over-by-a-truck feeling that caffeine caused me, but I felt it only a few hours after taking the pill, it was quite extreme, and it lasted the rest of the day. This is the most fatiguing herb I’ve tried and I hope you will list this as possible side effect.
Ginseng- I tried ginseng for a couple days – this made me tired.

What has worked:
L-Tyrosine has a mild but very helpful effect. It helps me feel more focused, motivated and less in a brain fog. I think that I only need L-Tyrosine sporadically. After I’ve taken L-Tyrosine for awhile, if feels like my body has stored some of it and I don’t need the supplement for awhile. I think this is a very safe supplement for me. If I take too much, I’ll get a slight headache, so I know to take less. After I’ve been taking it for awhile and my body has “filled up” on it, I get a slight headache if I take any, and I know I can stop taking it until I feel the need for it again.
Tongkat Ali. It is the first herb that has worked to help me have more energy. I bought this from your website last year. I was searching for it based on the book The Cortisol Connection – the same book that recommended Cordyceps -and I was afraid it would make me sleepy. It didn’t. It had just the energizing effect I was hoping for. I’m so happy to have found this herb. I only take one a day every few days. I can tell a difference on the days I take it. I feel more energized, motivated, and slightly more aggressive – not in an angry way, but in a let’s-go-out-and-get-it way.
