Feeling tired all of the time could be caused by not getting enough sleep, or by spending too much time at work. But, you could lower your risk of fatigue by regularly taking iron supplements, it’s been claimed.
Tiredness that goes on for long periods of time isn’t normal, and may be caused by an underlying medical condition.
But, making just a few small changes to your daily routine could help you to feel more awake and ready for the day.
Taking some supplements may help you to feel more energetic, and less lethargic.
One of the easiest ways to avoid feeling sleepy throughout the day is to simply start taking iron supplements.
“Sometimes, people might need an extra boost of energy when life gets busy or during particularly intensive exercise,” said medical website Medical News Today.
“A deficiency in iron can lead to a lack of energy and fatigue.
“People who have a higher risk of iron deficiency include those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, are vegetarian or vegan, [or who] donate blood regularly.
“Eating iron-rich foods with vitamin C can increase absorption, so people should be sure to consume enough fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits and leafy greens.”
Meanwhile, you could also lower your risk of tiredness by taking beetroot powder supplements, it’s been claimed.
Beetroot powder is made directly from beetroot vegetables, which is rich in nitrates.
Nitrate is converted in the body to nitric oxide, which is believed to lower blood pressure.
As a result, there’s increased blood flow to various parts of the body, and therefore delivers more oxygen to the cells.
Feeling tired all of the time could be caused by a variety of reasons, including anaemia, an underactive thyroid, and even sleep apnoea.
If you’ve been feeling tired for more than four weeks, it’s a good idea to speak to a doctor.
Making sure you get enough sleep could help to prevent you from feeling sleepy the next day.
Most adults need between six and nine hours of sleep every night to perform at their best the next day.
