Foods that can help you feel less tired

explore now

Who doesn't need energy? When we're low, our go-to foods and drinks are high in carbohydrates, especially sugar and/or caffeine. These give you a temporary boost, but then you crash.

Healthy, energised people need certain nutrients. Your body uses them to produce cellular energy, not like caffeine. That's what fuels you, not temporarily accelerating things.

Among these energy-generating nutrients are:
B vitamins, Carnitine, Coenzyme  Magnesium, Protein, Potassium

Carbohydrates and protein are fatigue fighters. Sugary meals and grains provide rapid energy, but it wears off quickly.

Protein: Animal-Based

Meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products all have protein in them. But different foods have different mixes of other nutrients that give you energy.


Nuts, seeds, and beans are plant-based protein sources. They're crucial for vegetarians, vegans, and those on low-meat diets.

Fruit contains vitamins and minerals, including  that boost energy. Aged or dried fruit loses nutrients, thus fresh, whole fruit is best. Dried fruits and liquids have more sugar than fresh fruits.

Vegetables include energy-producing nutrients and some protein (although not nearly as much as sources like meat, eggs, dairy, nuts, and beans).

Grains are a source of both carbs, which give you quick energy, and nutrients, which give you energy that lasts longer.

Natural and fortified milk alternatives contain energy-producing elements.
These drinks may have different main ingredients than you assume. Due to production losses or additional water or additives.
