Herbs That Give You Energy

Herbs That Give You Energy


By: Jhoane Robinson

Whether you are an athlete in training, sprinting through a long workday, cramming for tests, chasing little ones around the house, or have a day full of errands, with your busy life there are times you experience fatigue and low energy levels. At such times, you may have wondered where your get up-and-go got-up-and-went! 

Deep, ongoing fatigue and low energy levels can be a very real issue that many of us experience at some time in our lives. I know! I went through deep fatigue levels with chronic and extreme tiredness when my children were young. I had severely drained my energy reserves and had to work hard to turn it around. Here are some important things I’ve learned through the years: 

Negative Effects of Fatigue and Low Energy

Low energy and deep fatigue negatively affect both our physical and mental health! When fatigue and extreme tiredness become chronic, you may experience burnout, low physical and/or mental energy, brain fog, difficulty with mental focus and blue moods, as well as struggling with your physical health.  

Benefits of Herbs for Energy

Did you know there are herbs that can support your energy levels? You can enjoy greater physical and mental vitality with adaptogenic and energy supporting herbs that help strengthen your body’s ability to handle ongoing stress, help rejuvenate your overall health and vitality, and even benefit your overall cognitive function. Adaptogenic herbs gently support rebuilding your energy levels, memory and mental focus, and your nervous system.

History of Herbs for Energy

Herbs have been used for many centuries throughout the world to benefit our energy levels and to strengthen our health. Two important ancient systems of Alternative Medicine are Traditional Chinese Medicine, which brought us herbs like Asian Ginseng, and Ayurveda from India, which brought us Ashwagandha root and Turmeric root. Eleuthero root (previously known as Siberian Ginseng) and Rhodiola root are two important adaptogen herbs from Russia. And there are others.

Energy Sources – Caffeine vs Herbs

False Energy

Many of us reach for so called “energy” drinks or a third or fourth cup ‘o Joe when we feel the need for a quick boost to get us through our day. But depending on high levels of caffeine and “energy” drinks puts us at risk of having the energy crash that goes along with them, and they can really play havoc with our health! Stimulants, unlike Nature’s remedies, do not fix anything!

True Energy

What we really need is to nutritional build our energy and stamina. Stamina, or “staying power,” also called endurance, is your ability to sustain physical or mental effort for a long period of time. If you depend on caffeinated drinks, including soda pop and “energy” drinks, you are setting yourself up for the caffeine to crash your health.

You need healthy energy and stamina to not only get through your day, but to support both your busy lifestyle and your health!
