Hi, my name is Charlotte Skiles, I'm a nutrition consultant and clinical herbalist with Eat in Peace Wellness Consulting located in Austin, Texas and today's question is what vitamin is good for energy. And I don't believe that there is a single vitamin that is good for energy, simple as that. Energy in the body comes from what is called vitality, chi, life force, it's the ability to get out of bed and be happy to start your day and to be living life. So does a vitamin able to give you that and do that? No, it is not. What can do that however is what you eat, how you live your life and how you think. And so in terms in what you eat for energy, you eat the foods from mother nature, they're vital. They're full of vitality, they're brightly colored, they are the brightly colored egg yolk from the chicken that's been living the life that the chicken is been designed to live, they're from the animals that are out in mother nature living the way nature intended. Plants that you pick out of the ground, fruit that you get from the trees and the bushes, those are vital foods that will give you body energy with everything that mother nature intended. Sleep is another huge factor with energy. So our ancestors on average got about 9 hours of sleep per night, the average American now gets about 6 something, I think might be nearing 7, I'm not sure at this point but not enough. That no vitamin is going to make up for that lack of sleep. Hydration is another key part here. Being dehydrated will make your tired, your body is 75% water so you want to keep yourself hydrated. Good to go in that regard. So is there a vitamin for energy after thinking about all of those different factors? I don't think so.
