Mid-Day Energy Crash?

If you find yourself feeling drained of energy in the afternoon then you’re not alone. Chances are your cortisol levels are doing the same thing. While cortisol is known as the  “stress hormone,” the fact is, it plays a very important role as it helps impact consistent energy levels. When the body is in balance then cortisol is high in the morning and then tapers gradually throughout the day wearing off just in time for a good night’s sleep. But if the body is chronically stressed, cortisol levels can cause the body to act more like a roller coaster than a well-oiled machine. To even out that wild hormonal ride, you may require specific supplemental support.

When cortisol levels are chronically elevated, it can eventually drop off so significantly that it causes that predictable daily mid-day drain of energy. Do you feel this way, even after getting plenty of sleep and you resort to an afternoon caffeine break but even then, your energy doesn’t last? The crash becomes inevitable and daily.

One way to assist your body in easing back to a state of balance is by getting some support from adaptogenic herbs. Rhodiola rosea (rhodiola) is an adaptogen that has been used for thousands of years by Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic practitioners. Studies demonstrate that rhodiola can support the normalization of the release of stress hormones while simultaneously supporting consistent energy metabolism via activation of adenosine triphosphate synthesis in the mitochondria. Other adaptogens to consider along with rhodiola include Panax ginseng, Siberian ginseng, and ashwagandha.

It’s likely you have been experiencing that mid-day cortisone crash. Sounds like you? Most likely then you will need to balance your adrenal system, hormones and thyroid as they all work together and I like to call it the triple balance to optimal health,

Remember to review your food intake, exercise, relaxation, sleep, and stress reduction strategy along with the positive mindset that is taught in Look & Feel Great Method.

Some foods that can boost energy is an apple with sunflower seed butter, green tea, dark chocolate, chia seeds, water, wheat grass,  some protein with green leafy vegetables.
