Hi, I'm Molly Lee, and I'm founder and director of energizingnutrition.com, a holistic health and nutrition practice based in New York City. Your body requires all different kinds of vitamins to function properly and to have adequate energy. One of the most important vitamins for energy are the B vitamins. B vitamins help metabolize carbohydrates into energy, which is the main source of fuel for your body and your brain. A lack of B vitamins can lead to low energy, depression, irritability, mood imbalances, and poor memory. A few good natural sources of vitamin B are liver, organic chicken and beef, whole grains, bananas, avocados, walnuts, and sunflower seeds. If you have a hard time getting your B vitamins from natural food sources, you may want to consider a B vitamin supplement. That way you can help ensure your body is getting the energy it needs.
