4. Iron

Iron is essential for producing hemoglobin in the body. Hemoglobin is necessary for carrying oxygen from your lungs to the organs and tissues throughout the body. Without adequate levels of iron, your organs and tissues won't get the oxygen required by them. This will result in you feeling fatigued and weak. You need to make sure your iron intake is proper for keeping the energy levels high and keep yourself active.

 

5. Creatine

Creatine is a compound naturally found in red meat, pork, poultry, and fish. It helps the muscle cell to produce more energy and acts as a source of quick energy. It is also known to increase your high-intensity workout performance and also increase muscle mass. Taking creatine supplements will increase your body's energy store and this increased energy will help you to train harder and longer.

 

6. Citrulline amino acid

It causes the inner muscles of the blood vessels to increase the blood flow by acting as a vasodilator. This enhances the flow of blood, nutrients, and oxygen to the different parts of the body. Lack of nitric oxide results in weakness in the body and a lack of energy.

 

7. Beetroot powder

Made from the vegetable beetroot, beetroot powder contains a high quantity of nitrate. Nitric oxide is produced by nitrate in the body. Nitric oxide relaxes the blood vessels and increases blood flow and oxygen delivery to the organs. More oxygen and better blood flow results in the body producing energy more efficiently. It also helps to increase the duration of your workout by reducing the amount of oxygen used during the workout.

 

8. Caffeine

Caffeine is normally consumed in the form of tea, coffee, cocoa beverages, and energy drinks. It is the most commonly used energy-boosting substance. A shot of black coffee is much better than any other pre-workout supplement in giving an energy boost and increasing focus in the gym. It is consumed to increase wakefulness, alleviate fatigue and increase focus and concentration. But excess consumption of coffee has side effects in the long run.

 

9. Tyrosine

It is an amino acid naturally produced by the body and also found in high protein foods like chicken, eggs and dairy products. Tyrosine is important for producing a chemical that transmits messages to the brain. An increased intake of tyrosine is known to increase alertness and energy levels. It has no side effects and is quite safe.
