Did you know that increasing your protein intake can also help increase energy levels? Ensuring your body gets enough protein has been shown to slow down sugar absorption while eating, ultimately preventing spikes in blood glucose, essential for balancing energy levels and regulating mood.

 

Simple carbohydrates, which are often referred to as simple sugars, are absorbed rapidly by your body. Although this rapid absorption can be beneficial because it provides quick energy, it also results in dramatic increases in blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar levels inevitably drop, you will feel fatigued and lethargic due to rapid fluctuation.

Skip the energy drinks and prepare your own energy booster juice in the morning. Here are our favourite energy-boosting recipes to kickstart your day. Coconut & Kale juice is a great energy booster. Kale & Protein will provide you with the nutrition your body needs in the morning. The addition of the other ingredients, including apples, coconut water, and ginger complete this drink. Simply put all of these ingredients through your juicer and enjoy!

  • 6-8 leaves of Kale
  • 2 Apples
  • 30ml of coconut water
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger
  • 1 scoop of original protein

Sleep is perhaps the most important part of your routine. The body recovers and skin cells repair during sleep, hence why inadequate or disturbed sleep affects not only our appearance but also our sense of physical and emotional well-being, along with directly impacting energy levels during the day.

Vida Glow’s Beauty Sleep is created with key ingredients that work together to calm the body, allowing you to drift off to a natural sleep cycle, leading to deep, relaxed sleep without causing drowsiness.

The ancient Mayans and Aztecs ingested chia seeds to keep up energy and alertness among warriors during war. For us mere mortals, the essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) found in chia seeds help regulate glands, fight adrenal fatigue, and combat inflammation, which keeps your body feeling fresh. Combined with high levels of protein and fibre, which keep blood sugar stable (no afternoon sugar crashes!). Vida Glow’s Beauty Protein contains this mini but mighty nutritional wonder.
