Vitamin Energy

B vitamins: vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, B11, and B12

When it comes to your fitness, the B vitamins are very important. This is because they help burn carbohydrates from your food, which gives you energy.


Burning nutrients in your body release energy, allowing you to do what you want. But to burn these nutrients, oxygen is needed. Iron is found in hemoglobin, the red dye in your blood. This hemoglobin allows oxygen to be carried throughout your body with your blood. If you are deficient in iron, you have less oxygen for combustion, which releases energy, and you tire more quickly.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C allows for better absorption of iron from your diet, which allows iron to help with energy metabolism. So vitamin C also helps you reduce fatigue.

Copper, like iron, is part of hemoglobin. So copper also keeps us feeling fit.

Magnesium also contributes to energy production in your body cells and thus prevents fatigue and tiredness.

Don’t you manage to eat exactly according to the Disk of Five every day? Then you might want to consider a multivitamin. These can supplement your vitamins and minerals and help recharge your battery.
