Feeling tired all the time is the most common complaint in GP surgery’s, in this short episode we break down the simple steps to combat exhaustion from balancing blood sugar to the key vitamins and minerals to look out for, plus the role of coffee, sugar and artificial sweeteners.

Switching to whole grains

Including protein in every meal

Including lots of iron (with vitamin C for added absorption), B vitamins, magnesium and essential fats (omega 3)
