Low energy treatments vary in kind from lifestyle tweaks to dietary and herbal supplement additions. Making simple changes like exercising daily and avoiding certain foods can effectively boost energy. When diet and exercise alone are not enough, however, natural supplements can effectively augment energy levels.
What is Low Energy?
Not so much a disease itself, tiredness is more of a result of other conditions. Fatigue causes range from general lack of sleep and overexertion to medical and surgical recovery. More specifically, low energy may be a result of viral infection, immune system problems or hormonal imbalances. The characteristic symptom of subaverage energy is the inability to complete normal daily activities, yet several other symptoms may also present including irritability, mood swing, inattentiveness, trouble concentrating and depression.
Lifestyle Treatment for Low Energy Levels
Low energy levels are often easily treated by making small adjustments to one’s daily routine. Regular exercise and a balanced diet support overall health and increase energy. Likewise, making small dietary changes, such as avoiding milk, gluten or artificial sweeteners may relieve the stress on a fatigued system.
How to Increase Energy with Herbal Treatments
Herbal treatments have proven effective energy enhancers, particularly when diet and exercise alone are not enough. Turmeric, ginger root and blackstrap molasses are particularly effective for fighting fatigue and improving overall health. Each of these remedies features specific healing components in regards to fatigue as well as many other health conditions.
A bright yellow spice, turmeric contains a medicinal compound called curcumin which features numerous health benefits. This component is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that has been shown to diminish physical exhaustion. Additionally, turmeric is an antioxidant, anti-viral and digestive aid, treating several other components of health as well.
A potent herb with intense anti-inflammatory properties, ginger treats low energy at the cellular level. Known to have more than twelve different antioxidants, ginger root eliminates fatigue-causing toxins and chemicals from the body. The herb also contains protein, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin C, and a number of other vitamins and minerals.
The byproduct of the sugar refining process, blackstrap molasses is rendered from the third boiling of sugar, making it much thicker and denser in nutrients than other grades of molasses. With a bittersweet taste, likened to that of gingerbread, blackstrap molasses contains numerous health benefits including high levels of iron, manganese and copper. The nutrient is also quickly converted into energy when consumed, making it a perfect energy supplement.
Low energy often has a devastating effect on the body whether it is caused by daily exertion or underlying health conditions. Either way, lifestyle changes and daily supplements deliver lasting increases in energy.

[YEA] I tried ACV for the first time yesterday. I had heard about it years ago and thought "geez, vinegar, people are crazy. " As the years went by, health problems occurred. I felt very blah everyday. I became very sad and depressed and just chalked it up as part of getting older. I figured that with a heart condition, high blood pressure, Interstitial cystitis, ovarian and breast cysts, that I was just supposed to feel this way. I came down with a bad viral that came on suddenly a few days ago. I felt like every condition I had, had tripled and my body was going to just give up. I was so desperate. I went to the DR. But since it was a viral, he couldn't do anything except to advise me to wait it out and drink plenty of liquid. It didn't help. I decided to try the ACV after remembering it when I stumbled across your site yesterday. I had ONE dose of it and felt 70% better within the hour. I cried. I really and truly cried, because I realized that all of a sudden. I REALLY felt better. I, just for some reason, felt happy (I didn't know that was a real feeling anymore). I felt less achy and my body (especially my bladder) felt SO much better. Today I have had more of the ACV and I have been bouncing around and feeling so cheerful and just giddy. My husband has been staring at me, (wondering if I have finally lost it probably), but he has been so happy to be able to cut up with me like we used to when we were younger. I really think this site and ACV saved my life. I really had given up and was just waiting for my time. I truly was as sad as that is to say. I had set into a frame of mind and that was that. I am SO happy that I was WRONG! Bless your site and bless all of you!
[YEA] I've been drinking apple cider vinegar daily for three years. I mix 2 tablespoons of acv and a pinch of stevia powder in a tall mug with distilled water. I use the stevia because I don't want to add more sugar to my diet and I find stevia to be an excellent natural sweetener. I drink this every morning and I don't mind the taste at all. I've had more energy since I began drinking this tonic, and I've also had fewer colds. Before acv, I thought my low energy was just normal and I always envied people who had a lot of energy. But after a month of drinking acv everyday, I started to feel, well, brighter, and more full of life. Even my moodiness evened out, and I began to feel happier for no apparent reason other than that I was drinking acv. I now know that the low energy I was feeling before was not normal at all. Whatever skeptical people may say, I absolutely stand behind my acv tonic, and I can honestly say that it's given me new life. I'm so glad to have stumbled onto it. It's changed my life!
[YEA] I have been using ACV for about 2 weeks. I use to need naps all the time after work. My energy level is very high now. Tried different pills, wheat grass, etc. Nothing worked. ACV works. I take 2 tblspoons 3 x a day in 8 ounces of water. I either take it with a meal, before or after. Doesn't matter. Great energy. I drink it with a straw to prevent enamel decay-then rinse with water. I love it. I want to thank you people on this site. You are a Godsend.
[SIDE EFFECTS] After reading so many YEAS on EC about the overall benefits of ACV, I tried it (and made my family try it too). I put about a tablespoon in herbal tea with honey. It definitely increased my energy just that one time, but I actually got very uncomfortable heartburn afterward. I'm not sure if it was because of the tea or the ACV or the combination.
