A recent survey showed that 3 out of 5 adults in the U.S. feel more tired now than ever. (1)
Does this sound like you?
“I need more energy.”“I'm so tired all day long.”“I can’t concentrate or focus at work.”
Everyone can use more energy these days. We are all constantly on the go and live fast-paced, busy lives. We may not eat as healthy as we should and rely on fast food as a convenience. We are also up against toxins in the environment, such as chemicals in our food and personal care products, and plastics and pesticides. All of these things can lead to chronic stress, anxiety, low energy and mental fatigue, and deplete your body’s stores of vitamins and minerals. Research shows that deficiencies in most vitamins and minerals have been associated with lethargy or physical fatigue. (2)
The Importance of Vitamins for Your Health
Vitamins and minerals are necessary for your health since they play essential roles in a variety of basic metabolic pathways that support fundamental cellular functions. In particular, their involvement in energy-yielding metabolism, DNA synthesis, oxygen transport, and neuronal functions makes them critical for brain and muscular function. These, in turn, translate into effects on cognitive and psychological processes, including mental and physical fatigue. (2)
All the B Vitamins, except for folate, are involved in at least one and often in several steps of the energy-production system within your cells. An adequate supply of each B vitamin is required for appropriate functioning of this energy-production system and a deficiency in any one of them will limit energy production, with potentially severe metabolic and health consequences.

Vitamin C is needed for two enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of carnitine, an essential cofactor in the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria (the powerhouse of your cells). Vitamin C therefore plays an important role in the production of energy via beta-oxidation. So an impaired carnitine metabolism from a vitamin C deficiency can be responsible for weakness or muscle aching. (2)
Magnesium has a predominant role in the production and utilization of ATP, which is the source of energy for your cells. (2)
Depletion of Nutrients in Soil and Food
The vitamin and mineral content of food appears to be declining. Several studies of historical food composition tables show a decline in food nutrient content over the past 70 years. This decline has been attributed to soil degradation and the “mining” of soil fertility by industrial agriculture. (3)
People have been depleting the earth’s soil resources faster than the nutrients can be replenished. Farming, which accelerates erosion and nutrient removal, is a primary game changer in soil health. Researchers found that 31 types of soils are effectively extinct because they have been nearly completely converted to agricultural or land use. (4)
Many Americans are Deficient in Vitamins and Minerals
Many Americans’ intake of nutrients falls below adequate intake levels. In such cases, vitamin and mineral supplementation can be a means to meet this need. This is one of the most frequent reasons for vitamin consumption given by people. An enhanced feeling of well-being, a reduction in mental and physical fatigue and improvements in psychological and cognitive functions are also among the commonly reported motivations for taking supplements.
