What we choose to eat first thing in the morning can have a significant impact on our energy levels for the rest of the day. Natural energy drinks contain nutrients and vitamins that can improve alertness, concentration, physical performance, and our energy levels in the morning, which is especially important in our 60s and older, when our energy levels begin to decline as we age. Natural energy drinks can also help us sleep better at night. Despite the fact that everyone's nutritional requirements differ due to the changes brought on by ageing and other factors, one, two, or more of the beverages listed below can help you feel more energized in the morning.
1. A glass of green juice
In addition to their high iron content, green vegetable juices like spinach and cucumber are known to increase blood oxygenation and naturally increase energy levels in healthy individuals. They also include a high concentration of nutrients that can sustain our aging bodies while also assisting in the normal functioning of our general well-being.
2. Water with lemon peel
Citrus water includes potassium, which has been shown to benefit brain and nerve processes. This boosts alertness, increases mental stimulation, reduces stress levels, and increases the production of feel-good hormones and energy levels.
3. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar includes potassium, amino acids, and enzymes that can help you feel more energetic and alert by reducing weariness and increasing your energy levels.
4. Coconut water
Coconut water is rich in minerals, antioxidants, and electrolytes such as magnesium, all of which can help to increase energy production, avoid weariness and dehydration, and improve the operation of your organs.
5. Goji berry juice
In addition to minerals, vital amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, goji berry juice has been shown to boost mental focus, increase energy levels, and reduce stress and exhaustion in people who consume it.
6. Green tea
Green tea, in addition to having a high concentration of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory qualities, has the ability to enhance metabolic rate (thereby increasing energy levels) as well as aid in fat burning. It can also help to reduce the indications of ageing as well as battle other health issues.
Importantly, in our 60s and beyond, we should obtain adequate sleep (up to 8 hours at night) and drink plenty of water (because many of us wake up dehydrated) in order to maintain our energy levels and lower the chance of developing chronic diseases like heart disease.
