We all know that during the cold winter months, it’s almost impossible to roll out of bed in the morning and feel energetic. When it’s still dark outside when your alarm goes off, and it’s already dark when you leave the office, you may find your sleep cycle is disrupted. The lack of sunlight means your brain produces more of a hormone called melatonin, which makes you sleepy. And while it’s tempting to go into hibernation mode, this sluggishness doesn’t mean you should automatically have a lie-in; in fact, if you keep hitting that ‘snooze’ button, chances are you’ll feel even more lethargic during the day.
This lethargy isn’t helped by the temptation to cast aside the fresh salads of summer in favour of stodgy, starchy comfort food during these shorter days.
And while food supplements aren’t a replacement for a varied diet and healthy lifestyle, incorporating Iron into your life maybe beneficial .
Once you’re finally home after a long day at work, it’s hard to motivate yourself to get off the couch and head to the gym. Instead, why not get an exercise ball or some weights, and warm-up while watching Netflix? There are also free work-out videos on Youtube if you’re strapped for cash, and you don’t have to worry about getting to that exercise class on time – you’ve got your very own personal trainer in your sitting room!
Incorporating an iron supplement like Active Iron into your life is a great way to support your fitness journey. Your muscles need iron to help produce energy, and also to tackle tiredness and fatigue. By targeting the natural site of absorption – the small intestine rather than the stomach or lower intestine – Active Iron doubles the amount of iron absorbed in the body compared to lron Sulfate.
