What better time than the start of a new year to discuss increasing your energy level
naturally. Of course there are the obvious and very important factors to maintain and increase your energy. A restful night's sleep of at least 7 to 8 hours, eating a balanced healthy diet, exercising, good lifestyle choices and taking at least basic supplements are truly important. Our body cannot be expected to perform optimally if we neglect or abuse the basics.
But there are a couple supplements I have been taking that have made a big difference with my energy level. 
The first one is Co Q10. It is a powerful nutrient that fuels energy to every cell in your body and that includes your heart so it makes a tremendous difference in cardiac health. Our body's ability to produce this substance decrease around the age of 30 and our usual food sources don't provide nearly enough. So like omega oils, taking Co Q10 in supplement form is essential and if you happen to be on a statin drug, it is a must. For over 15 years now, it has been part of my vitamin regime. There are many quality brands to choose from and luckily, not too pricey. The one I have been using is
Doctor's Best High Absorption CoQ10 with BioPerine, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Naturally Fermented, Vegan, Soy Free, Heart Health and Energy Production, 200 mg, 180 Veggie Caps It has proven effective for my overall well being and is reassuring for the heart benefits it provides. My dose is one 200mg cap with breakfast and one with lunch. Taking it at night could make it more difficult to sleep.
Entering my 70's I started feeling as though something more was needed to keep my energy level up and was lucky enough to hear about a product on Dr. Ronald Hoffman's radio show. He had actually been talking about it for years as a supplement for healthy aging, increasing energy and one he takes himself daily. Though it is a little costly, I felt the need to try, and started taking it April 2018. Within less than 2 weeks I felt a remarkable increase in my energy and that is with taking just one a day in the morning. 
Nutritional Therapeutics D3/K2 with NT Factor, Vanilla, 30 Wafers" This product is and will remain part of my daily vitamin/supplement intake and hopefully help me maintain a level of energy I need to be as active as I desire. I do of course often wonder just how active I should expect to be at each new birthday. Not having come across any chart with this information and my GP can't give me an answer either, I must rely on myself to determine what that level of energy might be. Each of us is unique and must learn what our body needs and/or might be lacking. Considering I will be celebrating my 72nd birthday next week, I'm quite pleased with how I feel during the course of a day, what I accomplish and the key nutrients that make it possible.
