Top 5 Energy Supplements for Athletes & Average Joes Alike

Different-types-of-energy-supplements CoQ10: You can find Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10 or ubiquinone) in every single cell of your body, helping produce energy to function at peak efficiency. Because of its high energy demand, your heart is the number one consumer of CoQ10. The problem is natural production of this critical nutrient starts to decline in your twenties! To maximize absorption and utilization in your body, consider Ubiquinol, the most bioavailable reduced form of CoQ10 available.

  • B Complex: The B-complex of vitamins includes all the known essential water-soluble vitamins except vitamin C. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12). You need B-complex vitamins to produce energy from carbohydrates. And if you’re an athlete, you may have an increased need for some of the B vitamins, including vitamins B2, B6, and B5.

  • Ribose: Many strength trainers and endurance athletes use ribose (also known as D-ribose) supplements to enhance their recovery after workouts. Your body uses ribose in the natural production of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP). Your muscles–including your heart–contain pools of ATP energy. High levels of this cellular energy are required to keep your tissues running at peak efficiency. When you exercise rigorously, your body burns through ATP at an even higher rate. For athletes, ribose supplements can help replenish normal levels post-workout. For average Joes, they support natural energy levels throughout the day.

  • PEAK ATP: Now that you know about the importance of ATP as it relates to cellular (muscle) energy, this supplement probably seems like a no-brainer. Adding this patented ATP supplement with scientifically proven effectiveness to your regimen will help boost your physical vitality. PEAK ATP is the only patented oral ATP supplement that has demonstrated its effectiveness in the lab. It delivers the exact molecule that your body needs to create energy, helping you increase overall energy levels and reduce fatigue.

  • Melatonin: Melatonin is the natural sleep support nutrient, so you might be wondering why it’s on this list. Simply put, you can’t maintain proper energy levels if you don’t get proper rest each night. Melatonin is a natural hormone that is produced in the pineal gland. It helps regulate circadian rhythms, your “internal clock” that controls your natural sleep/wake cycle. If you’re having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, try a melatonin supplement for a few weeks to help you re-establish a healthy sleeping pattern.
