There are definitely vitamins that can help fight fatigue and boost energy. B vitamins help our body release energy from glucose so for sustained energy it’s important you’re getting enough of this vitamin family. Vitamin B12 can be found in sardines, salmon, lean beef, and liver, and Vitamin B6 can be found in bananas, turkey, chicken breast, whole grains, and tuna. Another one to try is D-ribose. Ribose is an essential energy source for your cells, and some studies have found that these natural supplements can significantly improve energy.

For a natural afternoon lift that doesn’t come in a mug, can, or pill, try aromatherapy. Studies have found that inhaling lemon fragrance can wake up your brain and give you more energy naturally.
