10 Foods That Will Stop You Feeling Run Down

The foods that will keep you feeling your best in winter...

Do you find yourself struggling to wake up in the morning? Or unable to focus after 3pm? What about after the day is done – do you just collapse into bed in a weary heap? You’re not alone – with the advancements in technology, we’re now constantly accessible which makes ‘switching off’ feel close to impossible. The result? More and more women are suffering from fatigue and exhaustion.

But feeling run down doesn’t have to be the norm. In addition to taking some steps to reduce your stress levels (like making sure you get enough sleep, taking a break for tech devices and making time for yourself), there’s an arsenal of fatigue-busting foods in your kitchen that can help.

Click through our pick of the best foods to help when you feel run down and you’ll be feeling more energised in no time.

The single most important nutrient group to fight fatigue and give you an energy boost is B vitamins.  

Broccoli is one of the richest sources of Vitamin B outside of supplements and contains various other vital nutrients, such as folate, soluble and insoluble fibre, vitamin C and A, and calcium. It’s also one of those vegetables that’s super easy to incorporate into most meal times. Try popping an 80g serving into a salad, stir fry, curry or soup to top up your levels or better still pop it into an omelette – eggs are a great source of vitamin B as is brown rice and Marmite.

If you really can’t stomach your greens, you could always think about supplements – although make sure to take a full B complex, instead of just individual B vitamins, as they all rely on each-other to work.
