tired? get your vitamins

if you've been surviving on fast food, you may need to improve your diet. there are nutritional components to fatigue such as under nutrition. specific nutrients have an impact on energy, primarily vitamin b and iron. shortages of the following nutrients can contribute to fatigue:

- iron, which delivers oxygen to working muscles
- vitamins b2, b6 and b12 which all help break down protein, fat and carbohydrates in the metabolic process to unleash energy
- vitamin e which supports a healthy cardiovascular system and is a potent anti-oxidant
magnesium, which helps your body convert food into energy
