Shop by Health Goal: Energy System

Do you wonder why some people sizzle with energy all day and you fizzle out by noon? Or why you need caffeine to keep you going? If you always seem to be tired, your body is not functioning normally. There are basically two types of fatigue. The more common type comes from the daily grind of overwork and stress. It's a balancing act to deal with our modern lifestyle, and it's easy to get worn out and overreact to challenging situations. The Vital Lady and Vital Man herbal formulas supply just the right support for the mind, emotions, nervous system, digestion and blood. The result is greater stamina and more flexibility in the way the mind and body cope with stress.

Chronic cellular fatigue

The second type of fatigue is a deeper, chronic concern. It occurs when tired, old cells outnumber energetic, new ones. Usually this is due to poor digestion and elimination, which leads to an imbalance in the flow of vital nutrients to the cells. When the process of cellular regeneration is in a slump, then tired, old cells accumulate along with fatigue, and new cell growth is inhibited.
