8 foods that will help you feel more energetic

The next eight prod­ucts will give strength and ener­gy for the whole day! Include these foods in your dai­ly diet.

1. Apples



They con­tain quercetin, which helps mus­cle cells to work active­ly.

Famil­iar from child­hood and to all of us, apples have a sig­nif­i­cant sup­ply of quercetin. This sub­stance has the abil­i­ty to influ­ence the activ­i­ty of mus­cle cells. As a result of this “inter­ven­tion” they pro­duce more ener­gy. This fact, in turn, has a pos­i­tive effect on reduc­ing the peri­od of fatigue, for exam­ple, after sports train­ing. In addi­tion to the prop­er­ties described, quercetin found in apples acts as an antiox­i­dant and increas­es the rate of recov­ery of the body after exer­cise.

2. Oatmeal

Con­sis­tent­ly pro­vides uni­form ener­gy con­sump­tion of the body.

The low-calo­rie con­tent of oats, which con­tains pro­tein and omega‑3 polyun­sat­u­rat­ed fat­ty acids, deter­mines its spe­cial place among oth­er cere­als. Oat­meal, rich in vit­a­mins and antiox­i­dants, pro­vides our brain with ener­gy with­out neg­a­tive con­se­quences for the fig­ure. At the same time, being also a source of phos­pho­rus and mag­ne­sium, the prod­uct helps to main­tain a suf­fi­cient lev­el of ener­gy metab­o­lism. Var­i­ous dish­es pre­pared from oats and oat­meal com­pen­sate for the defi­cien­cy of vit­a­min B1 (thi­amine), which is involved in ener­gy gen­er­a­tion in the body.

3. Bananas

Potas­si­um-rich fruits help main­tain the nor­mal func­tion­ing of the car­dio­vas­cu­lar sys­tem.

A sig­nif­i­cant boost of ener­gy that bananas can give the body is due to the pres­ence of three types of nat­ur­al sug­ar in these fruits: sucrose, fruc­tose and glu­cose. The riboflavin (vit­a­min B2) found in the banana pro­motes the break­down of car­bo­hy­drates and stim­u­lates ener­gy pro­duc­tion in the cells of the body. In addi­tion, this fruit helps to low­er blood cho­les­terol lev­els, rid the body of tox­ins and main­tain nor­mal bow­el func­tion, thanks to banana fiber.

4. Chocolate

Quick­ly adds ener­gy due to a sharp increase in sug­ar lev­els in the body.

Fats and sug­ar, con­tained in a fair­ly large amount of choco­late, are one of the sources of ener­gy for the body. Sug­ar is a sup­pli­er of car­bo­hy­drates, and they, in turn, pro­vide quick­ly burned ener­gy resources. The fats that make up cocoa but­ter break down more slow­ly, which allows them to be used as “fuel” longer; mag­ne­sium and potas­si­um, also present in choco­late, are respon­si­ble for the nor­mal func­tion­ing of mus­cles and the ner­vous sys­tem.

5. Curd

Source of ani­mal fats, healthy pro­teins and cal­ci­um.

This prod­uct is enough to eat 100 g per day to main­tain ener­gy lev­els and at the same time be sat­u­rat­ed. If there is a lack of car­bo­hy­drates in the body, milk fat, which is con­tained in cot­tage cheese and is eas­i­ly digest­ed, can serve as the main source of ener­gy. The absence of lac­tose (milk sug­ar), the pres­ence of pro­tein, cal­ci­um salts, phos­pho­rus and lipotrop­ic sub­stances that dis­solve fat in cells make cot­tage cheese a prod­uct that not only pro­motes ener­gy pro­duc­tion and has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on metab­o­lism.

6. Blueberries

Source of antiox­i­dants that con­tribute to the pro­duc­tive work of the brain.

The process­es asso­ci­at­ed with learn­ing and remem­ber­ing infor­ma­tion depend on the qual­i­ty of our “gray mat­ter”. Eat­ing fresh and frozen blue­ber­ries, rich in fiber, helps to improve the qual­i­ty of the edu­ca­tion­al process. The pectins con­tained in the berry help cleanse the body of tox­ins.

Blue­ber­ries in the diet also allow you to delay as much as pos­si­ble, and in some cas­es pre­vent age-relat­ed mem­o­ry impair­ment.

7. Strawberry

con­tains a large amount of vit­a­min C, folic acid, as well as many antiox­i­dants.

The organ­ic oxal­ic acid found in straw­ber­ries can also be used by the body as an ener­gy sup­pli­er. Togeth­er with antiox­i­dants, it has a pos­i­tive effect on blood cir­cu­la­tion, which, in turn, opti­mizes meta­bol­ic process­es. This fact is worth pay­ing atten­tion to those who want to lose weight, since an active metab­o­lism includes fat burn­ing. Vit­a­min C, present in the berry, main­tains the metab­o­lism in the body at the prop­er lev­el.

8. Voloshsky nuts

Con­tains omega‑3 fats.

Volosh nuts are rich in dietary fiber and pro­tein, so they have proven to be effec­tive sources of ener­gy required for the brain to func­tion. Since nut ker­nels con­tain, in par­tic­u­lar, vit­a­min E, it helps the brain ves­sels to remain elas­tic, and also pre­vents them from oxy­gen star­va­tion. In addi­tion to the fact that wal­nut can sup­press hunger, eat­ing it in mod­er­a­tion helps reduce the risks of car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease and obe­si­ty.
