It’s easy to stay energized if you sleep eight hours a night, exercise and stretch for an hour a day, eat unprocessed, natural foods, don’t drink alcohol to excess, and have a positive attitude.
Of course, these things are easier said than done. And they are much easier when you are young.
No one can stay on the perfect diet, exercise, and sleep regimen forever. But you can make a conscious decision as you start to age that you will do better. Strive to stay on a good diet, cutting out the alcohol, soda, sugar substitutes, caffeine, and processed foods.
Avoid becoming sedentary at all costs. Strength train, stretch every day, and participate in variety of sports while being smart about avoiding injury.
Start taking bioidentical hormones as soon as your own hormones start waning, while also taking nutritional supplements that increase energy production at the cellular level:
• Coenzyme Q10 increases energy production in the mitochondria, the energy-manufacturing factories in cells.
• L-carnitine is an amino acid that moves fat molecules from the cell into the mitochondria and there transforms it into cellular energy molecules called ATP.
• Omega-3 fish oils are great antioxidants that help improve energy production throughout the system
• Vitamins B complex, B12, and C also serve as substrates to increase energy production.
But energy can only be generated if you have the substrates, and bioidentical hormones provide the best substrates.
