Everyday Energy Boosters
Faster living, stressful jobs, unhealthy diet: these are just some of the factors that can affect your energy levels. In many cases, adequate vitamins and minerals can go a long way in picking you up and keeping you energised! Why are they so important?
- Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients for the body. For example, vitamin C, magnesium and zinc are crucial for the body to function properly. Magnesium is used in around 300 biological reactions in muscles, the brain, bones and cells.
- Vitamins and minerals enable the body to produce energy, face the challenges of everyday life and maintain good health.
