The following natural energy boosters help improve health, fitness and wellbeing and can easily be added to day-to-day life. 

Green Tea

Many individuals rely on regular doses of caffeine to make it through the day, consuming countless cups of coffee daily. However coffee offers only a quick, short-term energy boost, which in turn can have negative side effects such as spiking blood pressure and causing insomnia. Try switching to Green Tea, for a more sustained release of caffeine over a longer period, and a more natural energy boost.

Daily probiotic

Help to improve your energy levels by introducing a daily probiotic into your diet. An imbalance in your gut flora can influence your body’s ability to digest the food you’re eating, in both absorbing the nutrients your body needs and removal of waste substances that could otherwise leave you feeling sluggish.


Ginseng is another natural stimulant which has been used for thousands of years to not only boost energy but also reduces stress and improves immune response. The active ingredients in ginseng help to control the hormone activity, which influences blood pressure and increases metabolism.


Try meditating

Give meditation a go. This does not necessarily require a great deal of time in your day to achieve a heightened sense of focus and reduction of fatigue! Simply take a few minutes each morning after you wake to breathe deeply, calm your body, and help you start the day at your best.

Omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids and healthy fats are finally becoming recognised as a vital part of our daily diet, which are incredibly beneficial for energy metabolism. As the brain is comprised mainly of fatty acids, EPA and DHA found in omega 3 are proven to help boost brain power and improve memory. Try introducing more oily fish into your diet, such as salmon, herring and trout, as well as seeds, pulses and vegetables including broccoli and spinach. Omega 3 fish oils can also be found in supplement form, so why not try a UnoCardio1000 (, an omega 3 and Vitamin D blend which has recently named the highest quality fish oil on the market for the third year in a row.

Drink water

Something as simple as staying hydrated and getting your recommended 2-3 litres of water a day can make a huge difference to your energy levels. Even mild dehydration can have an effect on our mood and ability to concentrate on daily tasks. Whether or not you are exercising daily or in warmer climates, it is a great idea to keep a bottle of water with you at all times.
