Eat to Regain Your Energy

Low energy, or fatigue can be caused by such things as stress, medications, overwork, sleep difficulties or illness. Chronic fatigue symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. But if it’s not a medical problem, it could be a dietary problem. There are a number of nutritional fixes that may help increase daily energy, according to an article in Best Health magazine, a Reader’s Digest online publication.

  • Protein: Studies show that people who skip protein at breakfast are more apt to be depressed, stressed and less physically fit than those who regularly add protein to their plates, according to the Best Health article. Amino acids make up proteins, which are the body’s building blocks, growing and repairing everything from blood vessels to hair. Amino acids also help increase levels of neurotransmitters that in turn boost mood and alertness.
  • Iron: Iron deficiency leads to a low volume of red blood cells and results in fatigue. The recommended amount of iron is 8 milligrams per day for men and menopausal women and 18 milligrams for menstruating women. The body absorbs iron much better from meat than from plant foods. 
  • Complex carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are the body’s primary energy source, but many people eat too many “simple” carbs that digest quickly, sending blood sugar on a wild ride that saps energy. Choose complex-carbohydrate foods such as brown rice, fruits and vegetables to get a steady supply of energy. Complex carbohydrates provide B vitamins, which break down foods into glucose, the body’s source of fuel.
  • Vitamin C: Studies have found that vitamin C deficiency is associated with fatigue. C is necessary for a healthy adrenal system, which helps prevent fatigue. It also helps fight off infections and helps the body absorb iron.
  • Magnesium: Magnesium is essential for the production of a molecule called adenosine triphosphate, the end product of food’s conversion to energy. Magnesium also relaxes muscles and aids sleep. Without the right amount, people can become tired and weak. Spinach and pumpkin seeds are a good source of magnesium.
  • Beta-carotene: Beta-carotene, the vitamin A precursor that puts the color in carrots, sweet potatoes and spinach, helps boost a depressed immune system. By promoting healthy cell membranes, beta-carotene boosts protection from viruses, bacteria, fungi and allergies. It also ups the activity of T cells, which fight infections, and it’s necessary for healthy red blood cells.

FDA Rules Require Manufacture Dates on Supplement Labels

Editor’s Note: This notice was first published in the May 2014 ALTRUM News.

FDA regulations for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) require labels on dietary supplement products display a “manufacture date” rather than an “expiration date.”

To remain in compliance with the latest FDA regulations, all ALTRUM nutritional supplement labels will list a manufacture date rather than an expiration date. There have been no changes to ALTRUM supplements.

Each batch of the ALTRUM products is rigorously tested to verify quality and potency.

ALTRUM nutritional supplements should be stored in a cool, dry place out of sunlight and with the lid tightly closed.  As a general recommendation, most ALTRUM supplements are best if used within 36 months. Vision Power, Ultra Daily Enzymes, Daily Enzyme Support and Ultra Probiotics are best used within 18 months of the manufacture date. These products can be refrigerated to extend shelf life.

Longevity Enzymes and Nutritional Drink Mix are best when used within 24 months.

These estimates are conservative for the industry. Dealers and customers can be confident that ALTRUM products are high quality, and they remain effective throughout the recommended product-use period.
