Klee Irwin and Dr. Steven Franks Expose Your Healthy Alternative for Energy

"While it may seem obvious that caffeine and sugar do not make the best choices for increasing energy, many adults don't know that they have simple, sound and safe nutritional options," affirm Klee Irwin and Dr. Steven Franks. According to scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, good nutrition can be a valuable source of vitality and alertness. These findings seem to be bolstered by a report appearing in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which highlighted specific vitamins and minerals that may promote energy and vitality in many key areas of the human body, including the brain, eyes, immune system and muscles (Rosenberg, 1992).

As scientists continue to search for natural ways of boosting energy in the body and mind, several nutrients have emerged as top contenders. Klee Irwin and Dr. Steven Franks agree with the research community that by making these nutrients and supplements a part of your healthy diet and exercise routine, you may find yourself feeling an invigorating burst of alertness and vitality.

Busy as a B-Vitamin

Regarded by many, including Klee Irwin and Dr. Steven Franks, as the best natural candidates for increasing energy, members of the B-Vitamin family have been associated with sharper brain function. Some of the most dramatic studies with B-Vitamins have been conducted with patients suffering from chronic fatigue. B-Vitamins have been associated with sharper brain function.For example, researchers at London's King's College School of Medicine reported that many "patients with chronic fatigue syndrome say they benefit from taking vitamin supplements." When those scientists studied some possible causes for this effect, they found that fatigue was often associated with lower blood levels of many B-Vitamins, particularly Pyridoxine (B6), Riboflavin (B12) and Thiamine (B1), while supplementation with these vitamins appeared to bring levels closer to normal (Heap et al, 1999).

Additional studies also have been encouraging. Researcher T. Shimakawa (1997) and colleagues at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute found that those who took pyridoxine and riboflavin supplements seemed to have Positive Homocysteine blood profiles, particularly in comparison to those who did not supplement with the vitamin.

Japanese researchers at the University of Tsukuba found that supplementing with Thiamine could help recovery from exercise-induced fatigue. During the study, Thiamine supplementation "significantly decreased the number of complaints shortly after exercise in the subjective fatigue assessment of 30 items" (Suzuki & Itokawa, 1996).

In addition, many health researchers became intrigued by the widely-published case study of a female with skeletal myopathy and a genetic deficiency known as complex I, which can seriously compromise a person's ability to perform rudimentary tasks. After being supplemented with Riboflavin for three years, she experienced a sustained and positive response. The researchers suspected that the nutrient was causing positive changes in her mitochondria, the "energy producing" molecules that reside in each cell (Ogle, 1997).

Create Your Own Energy Recommend Dr. Steven Franks and Klee Irwin

By using these B-Vitamins, you can give yourself the kind of lasting energy that you deserve, believe Dr. Stevens and Klee Irwin. Ideally, you should consider using a daily supplement containing all of the key B-Vitamins, along with other nutrients known to have a positive effect on energy levels. Some additional ingredients to consider include: Green Tea extract, Choline (a brain neurotransmitter) and Eleuthero extract. If you can find a supplement formula with all of these nutrients, you may discover a simple and natural way to avoid the unhealthy "jolts" and "crashes" of caffeinated and sugar-laden beverages. In contrast to quick fixes, an advanced formula of energy-boosting ingredients can help you unleash the youthful vitality that you are meant to enjoy confirm Dr. Stevens and Klee Irwin, Formulator of Green Tea Natural Energy and Dual Action Cleanse.

5 Tips for Boosting Energy

Klee Irwin and Dr. Steven Franks urge you to Power Up!

In addition to seeking a supplement filled with the correct B-Vitamins and other botanical boosters, consider using these easy at-home tips for increasing your energy levels.

  1. Let it go. Take an inventory of your life and try to identify at least one area that may be causing you additional stress. Do a little soul-searching and ask yourself if you really need to be that involved. Don't be afraid to let go of one of these activities. The payoff may be worth it, especially in terms of extra energy.
  2. Adjust your diet. Do you eat a lot of processed foods, including those that are made with white flour and sugar? If so, it's time to clear out your cupboard and start fresh, as in replacing those empty foods with fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains.
  3. Don't overeat. Try not to eat until you get full. Pace yourself and don't be afraid to leave at least 1/3 of your food on the plate. Research suggests that it can take as much as 30 minutes to a full hour for your stomach to "catch up" to your appetite. Slow down. Drink a glass of water. You'll be less likely to feel dragged down by that stuffed, bloated sensation.
  4. Avoid stimulants. Even though they are quick choices for coping with stress, coffee, alcohol and nicotine can actually increase your stress levels and sap your energy. It may take awhile to wean yourself off of these chemicals, but the sooner you start, the sooner you'll have more energy at your disposal.
  5. Breathe. Every morning, before you fumble for coffee or stumble into the shower, pause for a few moments and inhale deeply. Count to five slowly. Exhale, counting to five. Repeat five times. Concentrate on filling your lungs...and your body...with the energy-infused oxygen that makes all life possible.
