Better emotionally but. Physically shattered

Physically I feel shattered though anyone got any ideas on supplements to boost my energy levels?

Many thanks in Advance

    Hi Jo, I take B Complex, also a premium quality fish oil (Eskimo Oil Brainsharp,liquid but also available in capsule form)You probably know that nothing can take the place of a really good diet,fish & other proteins,vegetables,fruits and all that good stuff!I really believe we are what we eat...I know that if I eat junkfood for more than one day,I feel like s...So I try eating Pizza/similar only occasionally!..I would say the B Complex are important for energy,nervous system etc.Also you could take it in the form of Nutritional Yeast Flakes made by Marigold Health foods.It is absolutely delicious in soups to boot.It's rich in the B's.You can buy it online if you've no health food store near you....All the best,Sally x

      David...Put it this way:you certainly have nothing to lose.A good diet is the most important thing for all of us!And believe me,I don't always practice what I preach!I think we put such a concoction of "toxins" in the way of various medications into our poor bodies,we can only try making good with the nutritious guys like fruit,veggies,nuts,proteins....Etc

    Hi Krollette

    Well done being off your medication. I am 4 weeks off and feeling better than ever. I was so worried about relapsing without antidepressants I did heaps of research on supplements. I find l tyrosine 1500mg daily, in 3 doses has given me pick up and energy. A multivitamin a day also helps with absorbing the tyrosine.

    Everyone is different but The Mood Cure by Julia Ross MD is brilliant for comprehensive guidance. Otherwise its a bit of a minefield out there in the world of supplements. A really good, healthy diet cant be underestimated either.

    Good luck.
