It is a common complaint expressed by many people – a lack of energy makes it really hard to get things done, and at any given time many of us are liable to a lack of drive that makes us want to drop what we are doing to grab a nap just to shake of this feeling of torpor. This lack of energy seems resistant to many of the supposed cures – eating something means we have to wait while a lethargic body processes it, and many of the energy-specific products available are less than beneficial.
Energy drinks are one solution that a lot of people lean towards – but it has to be said that there is some question over the absolute effectiveness of energy drinks. Many of the products on the market are caffeine and sugar-laden fizzy drinks which have a taste that many would consider “acquired”. These do indeed give you a boost of energy at a key time, but only by borrowing against the body’s energy supply. A few hours later, you will be feeling sluggish and need to rest anyway. It is better to have a controlled, steady energy supply.
For this to be the case, the body needs to get the correct nutrients. Caffeine works for a time, as does sugar. However, for an all-day energy boost that allows you to call on an extra reserve of energy at the point when you need it, natural ingredients cannot be beaten. They will not leave the body feeling an energy debt, rather they will only use what is there, and enhance it to make sure you don’t crash. Acai berries are an excellent way of getting this.
