You have your morning cup of coffee (or more) and you still can’t shake the feeling of wanting to crawl back into the comfort of your bed. This can be hard when going to work, and even harder to make yourself get up and knock out your daily workout! The good news? There is something you can do about it; below are 7 healthy, natural energy boosters that can make you feel good and recharged in no time!
Oat Straw Extract: This is known to keep your brain more alert and function more fully, making you much less prone to a mid day crash.
Apples: These have two different B-vitamins in them, which turn food into energy as well as create red blood cells that keep your body strong and energized.
Sweet Potatoes: These have complex carbohydrates in them, which take longer than simple carbohydrates to digest. Because of this, they provide the body with more energy for a longer period of time.
