Q: Is there something I can take to boost my energy coming out of the winter months?
A: There are lots of viable options. But, first, be sure to consult your physician to help rule out potential root causes of fatigue, such as low thyroid, anemia, and adrenal imbalance. Also, focus on a balanced diet of adequate protein, a variety of veggies, and minimized sugars and fats; the physiological process of burning up excess body fat can release a lot of energy. Homeocan’s “Alfalfa Tonic” (with ginseng) is a low-cost and effective oral supplement that many have found to improve mental and physical fatigue, as well as nervousness, agitation, and anxiety. The greens, such as Organika’s “Spirulina”, and medicinal mushrooms, such as Purica’s “Cordyceps” can boost both physical and mental energy. Come talk to an integrative pharmacist at Pharmasave Steveston Village to explore your options for feeling energized for Spring.”
