BEST FOR FOCUS AND CONCENTRATION Ancient+Brave True MCT Sachets

Mental energy is just as important as physical energy. Without it, small tasks, such as completing a piece of work or contributing in a meeting, can feel insurmountable. Try mixing a sachet of this liquid supplement into a mug of tea or coffee whenever you feel your focus waning. MCT, or medium chain triglycerides, have been linked to kick-starting ketosis in the body which has been shown to boost energy and concentration.

BEST FOR YEAR-ROUND ENERGY MAINTENANCE Lyma

The human body likes consistency – and the way to achieve this is to ensure it receives a supply of everything it needs to maintain good energy levels day in, day out. To re-balance your own energy equilibrium take four of these capsules every day with food. You don’t need to take them all at once; we like to take two with breakfast, one at lunch and a final one with our evening meal. Each capsule contains Ashwagandha to reduce the stress hormone cortisol, plus antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, immune boosters and Vitamin D3 which elevates calcium levels.

BEST FOR BEATING THE AFTERNOON SLUMP The Nue Co. Power Up

Most of us are all too familiar with a slump in energy post-lunch which then often results in the 4pm sugar-run for cake, cookies or chocolate. But, the momentary boost this gives is not worth the energy crash that invariably follows shortly afterwards. Try this healthy option instead – it contains natural caffeine from Brazilian Guarana seeds so you get that same instant surge of productivity but without the jittery come-down. Add half a teaspoon into juice or mix it into your favorite nut milk.

BEST FOR AN ON-THE-SPOT PICK-ME-UP Anatome Essential Oil Elixir - Energy + Strength

We all have our own individual energy pattern; you may find yourself tired in the morning only to receive a burst of natural energy later in the day, or vice versa. This purse-friendly aromatherapy oil is ideal for whenever you start to feel you are physically flagging or need to revive yourself in a hurry. Blended with May Chang and lemon, both known to sharpen the senses and lift energy, it couldn’t be easier to use. Just roll a tiny amount of oil over your wrists and temples when needed.

BEST FOR ALLEVIATING STRESS Bear Perform Supplement

In small doses, stress can be good, as it’s often the impetus we need to get through a task or situation. But, when stress is a daily occurrence, it not only affects our health but it can also leave us feeling mentally exhausted and unmotivated. That’s where this smart supplement comes in. It’s formulated with Vitamin C and B12 to support the nervous system, plus it utilizes Bacopa, a botanical ingredient used in Ayurvedic medicine to relieve stress. Take one daily with water during stressful periods.
