Do you wake up feeling tired? Rely on coffee and tea to make it through the day, feel exhausted and irritated by mid-afternoon in need of a sweet fix and have no energy for exercise post work, despite your good intentions! If this sounds familiar then you could be one of many surviving rather than striving due to low energy. It may be time to explore the underlying causes of why you are constantly feeling so tired. Don’t just live with the energy blues, take some easy steps to beat it.

Iron out low iron levels

With over 91% of women aged 16-64 in the UK not getting sufficient iron from their diet , it’s not surprising that low iron levels in women isn’t uncommon. Iron is an essential mineral for the human body and is required to transport oxygen around the body and support energy release. A lack of iron can cause fatigue, low energy and decreased ability to concentrate, so low iron levels could be the cause of your exhaustion. It is difficult to get enough iron from your diet as the body finds iron hard to absorb, Spatone on the other hand provides iron in a form that is readily available for the body to use.

Spatone Apple combines the unique natural liquid iron supplement Spatone with a delicious apple taste plus added Vitamin C. Drink it straight from the sachet so you can carry it with you, ready to take a shot when you need it.

Get a natural high

To break the exhaustion cycle try taking a B-vitamin complex first thing in the morning, as B vitamins are involved in energy production and supports energy release. This will help you to maintain more consistent energy levels, rather than the energy highs and lows experienced from caffeine.

Eat for Energy

Good nutrition ensures you have consistently high energy levels throughout the day. Follow these tips from Oliver Gray, a UK’s expert in energy and performance and founder of employee wellbeing company energiseYou: 

Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a mid morning and mid afternoon snack, “Graze NOT Gorge” 

In each meal combine good slow releasing carbohydrates e.g. fruit, vegetables, brown rice and good protein. Also regularly eat foods high in good fats, e.g. fish, seeds, nuts, avocado, olive oil 

Eat five or more portions of fruit or vegetables per day 

Drink 1½ - 2 litres of water per day 

Keep below the recommended units of alcohol per day, (3-4 for men & 2-3 for woman), also aim to keep drinks high in caffeine to a max of two per day e.g. caffeinated tea and coffee

Spatone Apple contains Spatone spa water sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park - which can help top up your iron levels whilst causing fewer of the unpleasant side effects often experienced with conventional iron supplements. Generally, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. However, the iron naturally present in Spatone has been shown to be easily absorbed, with up to 40% bioavailability , compared to 5- 20% from food and other iron supplements. The addition of Vitamin C in Spatone Apple helps with the absorption of iron, that’s why each sachet of Spatone Apple contains vitamin C.
