Optimise your energy levels
We convert energy from food, heat, cold and sunlight but there are many ways to get energised if you know how!
What is energy?
Energy fuels your body’s internal functions, repairs, builds and maintains cells and body tissues, and supports the external activities that enable you to interact with the physical world. Water, your body’s most important nutrient, helps facilitate the chemical reactions that produce energy from food.

What does a lack of energy look like?
If you’re suffering from a lack of energy, you’re probably feeling tired all the time, frustrated that you can’t get everything done or that you don’t have the energy you used to. Maybe it’s affecting your work, your family life, your relationships, and your fitness. It might also be affecting your sleep and your mental health. Low energy levels can also result from a lack of meaning in your life or a lack of mental nourishment.
How to optimise your energy levels
What you eat will have a profound impact on your energy levels. Eating a diet that is personal to you is so important, not just for energy but for sleep, mental health, body composition, digestion and fitness. Eating a diet that contains high energy foods and is based on your unique DNA will enable you to optimise energy levels, your fitness and your wellbeing.
Hormones, vitamins and minerals
Using a simple, painless home blood kit, we test for 11 markers including vitamin D3 and B12, calcium, iron, testosterone and HbA1c (diabetes).
You can get energy by expending energy. Movement is an incredibly powerful way of energising your body, and it’s what we were designed to do. Constant daily life movement provides energy; even a 10-minute walk has been shown to boost energy and overall mood for up to 2 hours afterwards. Exercise (the appropriate type and intensity) will provide you with energy, stamina and endurance.
The final thing is your environment; the people around you, the atmosphere, the air quality, the light, your proximity to nature, your routines and practices for rest and recovery. We can get so much energy from being around nature, or around inspiring people. Your environment drives your performance.
