Fatigue can be both chronic and recurrent and can result from a number of sources, both minor and serious.  For many people, frequent or occasional energy loss is a frustrating hindrance to life.  There are, however, several herbal supplements, foods, and natural methods that can help regulate your energy patterns.

Try some of these out:
  • Ginseng – Yes, the plant.  Ginseng has been specifically researched for potential therapeutic benefits for fatigue in cancer patients and in overall quality of life.
  • Hydrate – As if water couldn’t be any more important, researchers have also found that dehydration causes immediate lack of alertness and concentration.  Drinking plenty of water helps optimize cerebral performance along with an endless list of other benefits.
  • Exercise – Even though it might seem impossible, frequent exercise is proven to help boost and regulate energy patterns.  The regular increase in endorphins and improvement of the quality of organs like the lungs and heart all contribute to more enhanced energy levels.
