In today’s busy world, it is easy to get behind and become fatigued. However, there are many natural herbs, vitamins, and supplements that can counter this effect! The following is an excerpt from an article that points out common energizers that can improve your energy and daily productivity!
Ribose--D-ribose is found in all living cells. It is an essential building block of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). DNA, of course, is essential to life while RNA is used in DNA replication. Ribose is responsible for providing energy to every cell in your body, and without it you would not exist. Athletes in particular believe that a ribose supplement increases stamina and endurance, and it is used to help speed up recovery of the heart after surgery and after heart attacks.
Ribose seems an excellent candidate to be included in any energizing tonic due both to its ubiquitous presence throughout the body and also because it is a sugar, a monosaccharide in fact, and hence simple and easily absorbed by the body.
Ribose can be found in both plants and animals, including beef and poultry, milk, cheddar and cream cheese, eggs, and yogurt.
Bee Products--Bee products provide sugars in a natural form and are excellent and natural energizers for your whole body. Whether you use royal jelly, honey or any other of the bee products available as supplements, they will not only increase your energy levels but also provide you with many other health benefits.
From treating athlete’s foot to healing wounds and alleviating stomach ulcers, honey has many medicinal uses. It is an antioxidant and antiseptic and can heal you of many conditions from head to toe, inside and out. Bee products are a must in any restorative or energizing tonic and are completely safe with no known side effects.
