A supplement to prevent tiredness
It’s been claimed SUPPLEMENTS could be used to prevent signs of feeling tired and sleepiness.
Feeling tired all of the time? I know I do. So could this be being caused by having too many late nights, or by spending too much time at work.
In truth though, tiredness that goes on for extended periods of time isn’t normal, and may be caused by an underlying medical condition.
You could be suffering from an iron deficiency which is causing your lack of energy, concentration, and may be leaving you feeling sleepy,
So could adding some iron supplements to your diet could help to prevent the condition.
Taking iron tablets could help to boost the amount of iron in your body, which in turn should reverse the tiredness, lack of energy, pale skin, or shortness of breath you maybe experiencing.
All men over 18 years old need about 8.7mg of iron in a single day.
Women between 19 and 50 should aim for 14.8mg a day, while those over 50 years old should get 8.7mg every day.
High doses of iron can be fatal, so speak to a doctor before you decide to take iron supplements.
But, taking 17mg or less a day of iron supplements is unlikely to cause any harm, said the NHS.
One of my favourite discoveries this last year has been Floradix, you may have seen the advertisements on your travels to and from work on public transport.
Floradix is a natural liquid or tablet form iron supplement that helps fight iron deficiency by promoting the formation of healthy red blood cells. It’s formulated for easy absorption whilst gentle on the digestive tract and I must say the supplement has worked wonders for me, even though the recommended daily dose is two a day, I’ve only been having to take one as that seems to be sufficient enough to stave of my tiredness and lack of energy.
Floradix contains natural herbal extracts and fruit juice concentrates, Iron, vitamin B2, B6, B12 and C, which have massively helped contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
If though you prefer to get your Iron boosted in the most natural of ways, the best dietary sources of iron include liver, meat, beans, nuts and dried fruit.
Most dark-green leafy vegetables are also good sources of the mineral too, including watercress and curly kale.
Other than an iron deficiency, you could be feeling tired all of the time due to stress or anxiety.
Tiredness may also be caused by an underactive thyroid, or even possibly sleep apnoea so speak to a doctor if you are constantly feeling tired.
