Vitamin B1 is necessary for human energy. In the energy management, fuel from carbohydrates (sugars) is released and this vitamin plays an essential role. Furthermore, the nervous system and heart muscle cannot do without B1 and this vitamin also plays a role in enzyme reactions.
The human metabolism cannot do without vitamin B2. Protein, fats and carbohydrates are ingested through food. It is with the help of B2 that these are released in such a way that the body can use them as fuel (B2 acts as coenzyme).
Tryptophan is a building block of proteins and based on this substance vitamin B3 is produced. This vitamin is essential for fatty acid production in the body. In addition, she plays an indispensable role in the energy supply.
RELEASED FROM FOOD
Energy from food cannot be released without vitamin B8. This vitamin is, among other things, important in the production of fatty acids.
AN IRON SHORT
Like many other minerals, iron is indispensable for the functioning of the human body. Iron is a mineral that plays an important role in the immune system. When people get tired quickly, the possibility of an iron deficiency is often mentioned. This is a justified suggestion, since a shortage of energy is one of the symptoms of an iron deficiency.
Phosphorus also fulfils a important function in the energy metabolism, temporary storage and transport, in the body.
Anemia can lead to feeling exhausted and (very) limited vitality. Chlorophyll can have a positive effect on this. This pigment also has a cleansing effect on liver and intestines. The substance can also support the body in combating an accumulation of toxins in these organs, which can contribute to a more energetic feeling.
Research suggests that a relatively high-protein breakfast makes you more alert and leads to greater attention. This mainly concerns the intake of the so-called alpha-lactalbumin, which has a stimulating effect on the human body. Tryptophan (an amino acid) also plays a role in this, at the moment that it is 'converted' to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin also affects memory, mood, self-confidence, sleep, emotion, sexual activity and appetite.
