To keep up with the demands and responsibilities of a demanding lifestyle, it is important to put health and wellness first. With increasing stress levels, it’s not surprising that many people are searching for ways to optimize their energy and combat tiredness.

Many options claim to be the solution, but few are as safe and healthy as proper nutrition. Let’s look at 8 vitamins and nutrients that help boost energy levels and fight tiredness.

Vitamins for Energy and Tiredness

Vitamins and supplements can help ward off tiredness and boost energy. However, modern diets and other factors can make it hard to get the vitamins and nutrients our bodies need to function at their best. Increasing the vitamins below can help you feel energized and ready to take on life’s challenges.

Vitamin B12

It can be found naturally in animal products such as meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. However, those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet may need help to get enough vitamin B12 from their food and may require supplementation.

Vitamin B12 supplements can be taken in the form of oral pills or injections. Several studies have shown that taking B12 supplements may make people feel less tired1 and give them more energy. A deficiency in vitamin B12 can cause symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, and depression, so it is important to ensure you get enough of this vital nutrient.

Vitamin B6

This very important nutrient helps in the realm of neurotransmitters2 and hormones, which control mood and energy. Good sources of vitamin B6 include poultry, fish, potatoes, and bananas. A deficiency in vitamin B6 can lead to fatigue, irritability, and depression.

However, studies3 have shown that vitamin B6 supplements can help improve your mood, reduce fatigue, and give you more energy.

Vitamin B6 is important in helping the body produce energy and keeping the brain and nervous system functioning properly. Hence, it is important to ensure you get enough of this vital nutrient.

Research6 has shown that vitamin D supplementation can help reduce fatigue and improve energy levels.

Other Useful Resources of Energy for the Body

In addition to vitamins, other resources help produce and hence increase energy in the body. Vitamins, minerals, coenzymes, and amino acids play vital roles in the body’s chemical reactions. Without them, most processes would not occur.


Iron is essential for producing hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the cells and helps produce energy. Good sources of iron include red meat, poultry, and beans. Studies have shown that people who don’t get enough iron may feel less tired and have more energy if they take iron supplements.

Magnesium can be found in foods like almonds, spinach, and bananas. More and more research shows a link between magnesium supplements and feeling less tired7 and more energy.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is a coenzyme involved in energy production. It can be found in fatty fish, organ meats, and whole grains. CoQ10 supplements can also be taken in the form of pills or capsules. Studies have shown that proper intake may help reduce fatigue and improve energy levels brought on by various factors.


Creatine8 is an amino acid that helps produce energy and build muscle mass. It can be found in meat and fish. Creatine supplements can also be taken in the form of pills or powders. Studies have shown that creatine supplementation can help improve energy levels and reduce fatigue, especially in those who engage in intense physical activity (Reference 15, Reference 16).

The Best Ways to Receive Energy-boosting Vitamins

There are several ways to get the vitamins and nutrients essential for boosting energy levels and reducing tiredness. Food, oral supplements, and intravenous (IV) treatments are the three main methods.

Diet and Nutrition

Food is the best and ideal source of vitamins and nutrients. However, with modern diets and busy schedules, it can be difficult to get all the necessary vitamins and nutrients. This is why many people turn to supplements and IV treatments.

Oral Supplements

Oral supplements, such as pills or gummies, are a popular option for getting the necessary vitamins and nutrients. But it’s hard to figure out how well these supplements are absorbed, and it’s not always clear how much of them the body can use.

IV Vitamin Infusions

When vitamins and nutrients are delivered directly into the bloodstream through IV treatments, they are absorbed more quickly and at higher concentrations than they would be through oral supplements or food. This leads to greater bioavailability, meaning that more of the vitamins and nutrients are available to be used by the body.

The Advantages of IV Treatments

One of the primary advantages of IV treatments is that they allow for precise control over the number of vitamins and nutrients delivered to the body. This is especially important for people who may have trouble absorbing some vitamins and nutrients from food or oral supplements. The exact amount needed can be put directly into the bloodstream with IV treatments. This is a more efficient and effective way to treat the problem.

Another advantage of IV treatments is that they are more accessible and affordable than ever before. Medical advances have enabled people to get IV treatments safely and easily. In fact, with the rise of mobile IV therapy and concierge medicine, you don’t even have to go to a medical clinic or IV spas to get these treatments.

In many cases, IV treatments can be completed in a matter of minutes and are a great option for individuals looking to boost their energy levels and reduce tiredness quickly and effectively.


Vitamins and nutrients are the cornerstones of an energy-boosting health plan. While food is the best and ideal source, solutions like vitamin IVs can provide a great option that can enhance even the most nutritious diets.
