Fatigue &

Low Energy

Nutrients for Boosting Your Energy

The body’s cells require a vast array of nutrients

for optimal energy production. Many of these—such as CoQ10

and L-carnitine—can’t be found in conventional multivitamin-multimineral

supplements. Others—such as the B vitamins and vitamin C—aren’t

always present at optimal levels to conquer fatigue. So whenever

I put a woman on a program to boost her energy, I always recommend

covering her bases by optimizing the amounts of key nutrients in

her daily supplement regimen.


In addition, I recommend the amino acid L-tyrosine for women who

battle fatigue due to stress, poor nutrition, and the aging process.

Tyrosine has an enormous impact on energy because it revs up metabolism.

It is also converted into a set of chemicals that boost physical

stamina, mental energy and sharpness, and enthusiasm for life. It

helps maintain healthy thyroid function and healthy weight, and

it can even improve a woman’s sex drive!

L-tyrosine is produced in the body from another

essential amino acid called phenylalanine, which is abundant in

foods like meat, poultry, fish, almonds, seeds, and peas. It is

the precursor for both the thyroid hormones that drive metabolism

and the set of sympathetic nervous system chemicals — dopamine,

norepinephrine, and epinephrine — that affect metabolism and

regulate your “fight or flight” stress response.

Suggested dosage: 500-1,000 mg of L-tyrosine

once or twice a day with vitamin B complex on an empty stomach or

with a carbohydrate snack.
