8 Superfoods that Boost Your Energy and Metabolism

How many times have you wished for more energy?

Feeling worn out keeps you from exercising. It dulls your joy in life’s every day pleasures. A bigger problem is that it can lead to mindless eating, and that can make you feel even worse.

The good news is that you can give yourself a big boost — and even charge up your metabolism — in a simple and tasty way. Science has shown that nutrients have a powerful effect on both.

Adding superfoods to your diet can improve your health, your mood, and more. Oh, and they taste great too!

8 Superfoods to Eat for More Energy

1. Spinach – Love to drink green smoothies? Keep it up!

It turns out that spinach is packed full of iron and more. Iron powers you up and keeps your metabolism running at a high level. And research has shown that it’s high in the stuff that make our mitochondria work best. (Mitochondria are the power houses in our cells that give us energy and keep moving).

2. Artichokes – Did you know that on top of tasting good, these spikey thistles are loaded with magnesium?

A medium artichoke has 25% of the magnesium that women need in a day. That's amazing considering 80% of us are magnesium deficient.

When you’re low on magnesium, your workouts will feel much longer because your muscles have to work harder.

3. Salmon – Salmon is good for you for so many reasons.

When it comes to energy its secret lies in its high level of protein, as well as its Vitamin B6, niacin and riboflavin. It will make you feel alert and power up your day.

4. Almonds – Another protein power house, almonds are also high in manganese, riboflavin and copper.  Riboflavin boosts oxygen in the blood stream, and manganese and copper keep toxins from tamping down your energy.

5. Oranges – This sweet treat has a secret weapon.

Besides being high in Vitamin C, potassium and folate, it controls how your energy flows. Rather than giving you a quick sugar rush, it spreads it out so you feel the power over time.

6. Eggs – Eggs are simply amazing.

Their protein keeps you full and energetic all day. And the egg whites are high in amino acids that rev up your metabolism. Double the superpower!

7. Hot Peppers – That kick that you get from a spicy meal does more than wake up your taste buds.

The capsaicin in peppers will speed up your metabolism. Plus, they’re high in Vitamin C!

8. Coffee – We all know that drinking coffee wakes us up and gives us an energy boost. But studies have shown that coffee drinkers have an average metabolic rate that is 16% higher than those of people who drink decaf.

Grab yourself a cup of Super Healthy Coffee to double up on benefits!

One last note. Though it’s not a superfood, drinking plenty of water is super important.  Not only will it keep your energy levels high, it also keeps your metabolism burning efficiently.

Even a little dehydration will slow your metabolism down, so keep your cells well hydrated. It will make sure you’re doing everything you can to feel more alert and energetic too.
