Consult with a professional before you get started to make sure that you’re problems would benefit from this type of treatment. Once you’re ready to go, here is a list of herbs that you might want to try:

Ginseng

Ginseng is widely used in many Asian countries. And, over the last 10 years, most Americans have become familiar with its energy-boosting properties. Ginseng is probably the herb that is most often used in products designed to increase stamina, metabolism, performance and alertness. It’s found in many sports drinks and protein bars. Recently, research that ginseng also has a stimulating effect on the brain and may be helpful for memory retention among other things.

Turmeric

Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola is an herb from India that works to rejuvenates and replenish the body after a long and tiring day of work. Like many other energy-boosting herbs, gotu kola is said to improve brain function. It’s also a useful remedy for anyone who wants to naturally strengthen and build their muscles.

Maitake

Maitake is a mushroom so, technically, it doesn’t belong under the “herbs for energy” category. Mushrooms are fungi, but maitake works just as effectively as all of these other energy boosting herbs. Because it stimulates the immune system, it’s very helpful as a natural remedy for fighting chronic fatigue.

Ashwagandha

The ashwagandha is also known as winter cherry. If you’re looking for herbs to boost your energy, then this is the rejuvenating tonic you need. It’s said that drinking this herb as a tea will give you endurance and may even increase sexual stamina. Ashwagandha also functions as an anti-inflammatory, so if you’re feeling sluggish from joint pain it will help relieve the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.

Licorice

Licorice can give you a little jumpstart if your fatigue is caused by overexertion. This root herb acts like a natural steriod, stimulating the body to produce adrenaline. Licorice can have a very strong effect and this herb shouldn’t be used to boost energy regularly. Not only can it interfere with other medication, but it can lose its effectiveness with frequent use.

Astragalus

Astragalus is an herb used for energy that is especially effective with fatigue that is caused by a respiratory complication such as asthma, sinusitis or nasal congestion. This helps strengthen the immune system, which makes you recover from stress and sickness faster.

Always remember that just because herbal remedies are natural, doesn’t mean they don’t have side effects. You should talk to your doctor or herbologist before starting any herbal regimine for energy.
