The Best Energy Supplements for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Energy supplements for chronic fatigue can help treat this condition which is marked by severe exhaustion. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including cancer and heart disease or a reaction to medications you may be taking, so you have to be sure you see a physician to find out exactly what the root of the problem is.

There are a number of energy boosters on the market that can give you a little extra pep when you need it. The problem with most of them in the form of bars or drinks is that they contain a lot of sugar, which can contribute to weight gain and headaches.

Many of the over the counter pills, as well as other energy products also contain a lot of caffeine, often much more than a cup of coffee, which could pose similar health risks as a recently banned popular energy ingredient called ephedra.

So as you can see, energy drinks, bars and pills are not the best choices for chronic fatigue.

You are much better off with natural vitamins, minerals and nutrients which can stimulate energy without the negative side effects.

What are natural energy boosting nutrients?

There are many natural ingredients that can boost your body's energy significantly. Let's take a look at some of the most important ones:

Vitamins

We are all aware of the importance of vitamins in maintaing our health. Specifically, the Vitamin B Family, namely Vitamin B12, Biotin and Folic Acid, can help fight fatigue by helping our body use the sugar glucose (fuel) and aiding in the formation of blood cells (energy transport).

Herbs

Herbal extracts contain some of the most powerful antioxidants and other therapeutic nutrients. Siberian ginseng, gotu kola and maitake are three energy boosting and fatigue fighting natural herbs.

Minerals & Other Nutrients

Some minerals and nutrients can increase energy production in cells. These include NADH, Co-Enzyme Q-10 and magnesium, among others.

Is there a supplement for sustained energy?

As we mention on our general herbs for energy page, the best bet for maintaining your energy levels is a general supplement that gives you all of the nutrients you need on a daily basis for your body to function optimally. For an added boost, a specially formulated energy supplement can provide specific nutrients like those mention above that address chronic fatigue head on.

Through our research we have found two high quality supplements that fit the bill...

The first product is called Total Balance and it is a high quality daily supplement that combines many of the herbs, vitamins and minerals for energy in one complete formula. You can think of this as the ultimate multivitamin.

The second product is called simply Natural Energy and it contains the bee pollen that we mention above along with B vitamins, amino acids and other herbs that specifically address low energy levels.

So one is a general, everyday health supplement and the other is a more targeted energy supplement, both without the sugar, extra caffeine and other harmful additives that you find in most energy drinks and supplements on the market today.

Take a look at both and see if they are the right choice for you.


As with all health supplements, results vary from person to person so be sure to consult your physician or qualified herbal professional before taking any supplement for chronic fatigue.
