With festival season upon us, now is the time to get your health prepped.
Emily Whitehead, Nutritional Therapist, has shared her top five tips to turbo-charge your energy levels this festival season.
- Stay hydrated: You can help beat the energy slump by drinking plenty of water. Being dehydrated can make us feel tired and drained, especially if it’s a hot day. It’s also important to top up on your magnesium levels as we lose a large amount of magnesium when we sweat. Simply massage BetterYou’s MagnesiumOil Original Spray into your skin.
- Boost with B12: Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, which means the body does not store it and, therefore, we need to obtain through our diets – however, this can be difficult. Vitamin B12 helps the synthesis of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline. These are responsible for mood, energy, sleep, appetite, and numerous other brain functions. For fast action and easy use, try BetterYou B12 Boost Oral Spray, which doesn’t need to be taken with food or water and can be easily used on the go.
- Pack power snacks: Avoid sugary foods as this can spike our blood sugar levels and then cause a crash, making us feel tired again. Take some healthy snacks with you to munch on, such as nuts, dried fruit and no added sugar muesli bars.
