In 2016 The Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness had a study which showed that using rhodiola as a supplement enhanced endurance during exercising and aided in recovery afterwards. If your exhaustion is related to excessive activity, then rhodiola is an excellent choice.

As scientific research is still being carried out on rhodiola, it could turn into a progressively common tool for enhancing the quality of life.

7- Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha has various names and has been used for over 3,000 years. The Mediterranean, the middle east, Africa, India and Pakistan are prominent areas where this herb grows. In India it is celebrated as a medicine that helps the body accommodate stress.

A 2012 clinical trial suggested that ashwagandha helped to decrease the levels of blood cortisol, popularly known as the “stress hormone.” Compared to the placebo group, participants in this study showed a considerable decrease in stress that they came across after 60 days.

Ashwagandha can be a good option for relieving stress. Recent studies have also showed that ashwagandha can help increase endurance and muscle strength gains from exercise, which is an extra bonus. Moreover, a 2017 study showed that this herb also helped in the reduction of food cravings as well as supporting body weight management.

8- Iron

In addition to be the support structure for bridges and skyscrapers, iron is also a fundamental element in the human body. Iron is used by the body to create a protein called hemoglobin, which has the responsibility of transporting oxygen from lungs to the rest of the body, making it a pretty important part of the body.

If the organs and tissues, including the brain, do not get enough oxygen then a person starts to feel tired, inactive, lethargic, and probably cranky too.

Iron is available in most people’s diets, if they are eating correctly. Nonetheless, vegans and vegetarians might want to consider taking iron supplements to meet their daily quota because iron is mainly found in meat and seafood. One should always consult a doctor to be sure about their body’s nutrition needs.
