The Natural Energy Boosters
There are actually natural foods out there that can help us energize. Some of these foods like apples, sesame seeds, avocado, lean meats from chicken and turkey, fish, tofu, eggs and plenty of water to hydrate yourself.
Studies show that food sources of quercetin (a plant-based phytochemical linked to athletic endurance) can boost your energy levels.
Foods rich in magnesium can turn the food that you eat as natural energy boosters that the body can utilize.
Also, complex carbs can be eaten as they are slowly digested and can prolong your energy level. Complex carbs are foods rich in fiber like beans, brown rice, whole-grain breads, brussels sprouts and other leafy vegetables.
So, the next time you feel weary and need a perk-me-up food, grab some fruits and snack on fresh vegetables for a quick energy boost.
