Energy Boosting Supplements Men

There are many things out on the market today that claim to provide some type of energy boosting effect.

The most prevalent item that comes to mind would be the energy drinks. The energy drinks business is approaching a 4 billion dollar per year industry.

Today let’s focus on the energy boosting supplements for men.

Lately I have heard men in their 50’s discussing how they feel more tired than normal.

It may be the colder temperatures or the excessive rain in the area, but there are some other things to consider.

Peoples energy level are going to be affected by their diets and when there is a lack of vitamins, especially the ones that contribute to energy production, they are going to feel the effects!

One way to help with low energy levels, is to take some supplements to make up for what is lacking in our food. 

Best Energy Supplements Men

What are the best energy supplements for men in their 50’s and beyond?

The slowing down of the metabolism, is one thing that affects how men absorb the vitamins and minerals.

As men age and their exercise habits tend to become more sedentary, the muscles in the body begin to weaken and food is moved through the body by the contracting of muscles.

When digestion becomes slow due to inactivity, this can cause several problems and effect the efficiency in which the body absorbs the vitamins and minerals.

It is very important for men in their 50’s to drink enough water to prevent dehydration and to prevent constipation.

There are digestive supplements to help the gut and intestines to function properly. I have recently posted an article on this subject for more information click on this link: Pre-Probiotics

What to do when the digestive system is working correctly, and your energy is still low? If this is an ongoing issue, going to the Doctor and getting a blood test would be the prudent thing to do.

Once you have the information from the blood test then you can search for the correct supplement that will make up for what you are missing.

If you do not have time to go see the Doctor, then using a good supplement that gives you everything that is recommended by the medical community is the next best thing to try.

Natural Energy Enhancers Men

Men have other things they can try that may help. Stress can cause men to feel fatigued through draining your energy.

This can be brought on by working too hard or too many hours without proper time to recovery. If the stress is from a job that is not physical, then exercise may be a way to relieve this type of stress.

Setting your priorities is crucial in maintaining the right balance between work, home, and taking the time for yourself.

Planning a to do list

Adjusting how we eat can affect our energy levels. If we are not eating on a regular schedule; focus on correcting that first, then start looking at the diet choices to see if better foods can be chosen to help energy production.

Sometimes eating smaller meals every couple of hours verses three large meals may help someone to have better energy.

In my case, energy levels have seemed to improve after starting a 16:8 fasting regiment.

Eating all the food in an eight-hour window, then allowing the body 16 hours to process the food and burn some fat calories can increase energy levels.

Staying on a low glycemic index diet, you do not feel the swing of energy and the sugar crash. Instead, there is a steady flow of energy throughout the day.

Limiting alcohol or avoiding it all together is better for your health. But, if you are going to drink, due so in moderation and at a time when you are ready to go to sleep.

Natural Energy Booster Foods

Getting the best forms of energy can come in the simplest forms. The foods we choose are the first places to start.

For those who can (non-diabetic) bananas are a very good source of energy. Just like other fresh fruits, they are loaded with vitamins and minerals.

A medium banana has about 27 grams of carbs, which will give the energy boost. Other popular fruits like a medium apple has 25 grams of crabs and a cup of blueberries or pineapple has 21 grams of carbs.

All these fruits can help provide energy for longer periods, due to their fiber content slowing the digestive process and delivering the energy more slowly.

Breakfast foods on a table

Whenever you start your eating period, choosing a good balanced meal will set you up to have a better day. The simplest things are usually the best choices and easiest to prepare for.

One point that I would like to make here is that by planning your meals the day before (or even longer) then eat what you plan.

That is a very simple concept and the rewards are enormous to those who implement this into their life.

Making this change in my life this in my life I have gained more control over my eating habits than ever before.

Approaching 50 pounds lost since last July is pretty good and feels so much better to have a sense of control on my eating.

This sense of control comes from this simple idea!

Losing weight is going to help those who are overweight to feel much more energetic.

Natural Energy Supplements Men

What are some natural foods that provide energy boost that we do not think about very often?

Ashwagandha may not roll off the tongue for most non-Indian people. Honestly being from Texas, I had not even heard of it before being introduced to the benefits through a supplement.

This is one of the most important herbs in Ayurveda (3000-year-old Indian alternative medicine). It relieves stress, increases strength and improves concentration.

There are numerous other benefits to this ancient medicinal herb other than providing a natural energy supplement for people in general. For more info click PMC.

Men can benefit from this herb by increased energy levels, and the extra benefits are always a good bonus, especially when considering the value of a supplement.

Green Tea Extract is another supplement that increases your energy in much the same way as coffee with caffeine.

If you are not negatively affected by the caffeine it can be used to provide and energy boost.

With the green tea extract, there is the added benefit, of an increase in antioxidant capacity; increasing the protection from oxidation stress.

These are two of the ingredients highlighted in this article that help to promote more energy, that are contained in SUSTAIN.

Ingredient Label:

Avisae Sustain Ingredients

This supplement has been the best daily vitamin that I have ever taken. My blood test has shown that the supplement is being absorbed and not being wasted.

In my experiences with vitamins in general always seemed to give a very bad aftertaste, mostly from belching up hours after taking them.

This has not happened to me with Sustain not even from the first time taking the product. Along with changing to a low glycemic diet this has improved my health tremendously.

The Sustain White Paper have much more information and references to the medical studies that went into the formula.


It is good when we see people who are in good physical shape, being active and feeling full of energy all the time.

Sometimes people are just blessed with the right DNA and everything is easy when it comes to diet, exercise, and having to watch what they eat.

Most of us must put much more energy into the process as we get older; because it is going to catch up to us.


This process is where I am in the process, and now have turned my health around by some very drastic changes in both lifestyle and the way that I look at food.

For men in their 50’s and older it is much more important to know how our habits are affecting us.

We cannot afford to ignore the signs and must pay attention to what is happening to our health.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this article, hope that it helps to encourage you to become more health conscious.

    Great post Chad. I never heard about this herb Ashwagandha. I’m impressed with the benefits, it’s really a super food! Great suggestion for 50’s men, I believe can be used for 40’s men also right? Based in your knowledge do you have any natural multivitamin supplement suggestion for youth athletes (15 years old)? Thanks.

      Thanks for reading my article and taking the time to comment, we use the Avisae products like Indulge Meal replacement shakes for our children ages 10 and 7 because of the nutrition. 

      It has the same types of vitamins and minerals that Sustain has  but we are able to make smoothies that they actually ask for because it taste good!

      Once they are old enough to take a pill, I will be giving them one a day to supplement their diets. With the results that I have experienced personally and the endorsement of this supplement by all the Doctors that have treated me. I recommend young people to take Sustain as an insurance for their health.

    Hi Chad, thank you for this post. Being over 50, I understand how the body metabolism can slow down. I like the part of your post that talks about natural enhancers for men. Especially the fact that men should strive to balance their work and home time. I know feeding the right way is very important, you mentioned that as well.

      Thank you for your comments Juliet.

  • Sondra M says:

    Chad.  Thank you for the very informative article.   My hubby has been more tired lately.  In part, I know that he has been so busy with work that he does not eat properly.   So, I was looking into vitamin supplements.   

    His biggest complaint about vitamins has been the after taste.  So, I was thrilled to see that you actually mentioned that in your discussion of Sustain.   Or maybe I should say the lack of the bad aftertaste.    

    By the way, I had never heard of Ashwagandha either.   I’m thankful for cut and paste, because I couldn’t spell it either.   Can I blame it on coming from Texas also?   Regardless, it sounds like it would be worth looking into.   (I wouldn’t mind more energy myself either.)  

    • Chad Trader says:

      For most people that I talk to regularly the aftertaste with vitamins are a big deal, it doesn’t necessarily stop them from taking them but they definitely make the Mr. Yuk face.

      Every vitamin or supplement that I have taken before Sustain always left that aftertaste and after a few months I would can because of it. I’ve been taking Sustain for over four years and love this supplement because of all the benefits without the bad-taste!

    Hi Chad. Thank you so much for taking your time to cover Energy Boosting Supplements for Men. As you have said earlier, daily exercise play very important role in our energy efficiency and our health generally but we usually loose strength for exercise as we grow older and we take foods that lack the required nutrients for our energy boosting. Energy supplements to the rescue as they’d fill in the gap.

    I love green tea extract in particular.

    Hi Chad, thanks for your post.  I am someone who can lose weight quite easily but can also put it on just as quickly.  I put it on doing the exact opposite to what you have said which is eating late at night (outside that 8 hour window), drinking too much beer and eating large meals.  

    If I feel the need to lose some weight I actually do go back to what you have talked about I eat in a 10 hour window – 8 hours is too short for me and makes me too hungry at night which is when I snack, I eat smaller meals with high energy fruits etc and reduce alcohol.  These things are so simple and they work!

    I guess my only problem is that I never stick to it and seem to yo yo every couple of years.  I have always avoided supplement but will have a look into them for sure.


    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you for commenting and sharing your experiences, before turning 50 I was able to do what you are describing, but now the gaining weight is very quick and losing takes so much longer with much more drastic measures than ever before.

  • Dhayours says:

    It’s best to stay fit and healthy for many reasons. Anything can happen anytime. I see energy supplements to be a very effective method of sustaining energy in man.

    I personally have not used any unnatural energy supplement, I make sure I stay consistently hydrated. Most times I take water just for the fun of it.

    Thank you.

  • Dale says:

    Being 51 and feeling like my energy levels cant keep up to me made reading this article a must.  I agree that a big thing is to drink water.  I don’t think enough people realize how important water can be for them at any time. I need to be careful because I am a diabetic and I think that has a lot to do with my diminishing energy levels.  I am going to read your article again and see what I can put into place to help with my energy levels. Dale

    • Chad Trader says:

      Thank you Dale for commenting and I have type 2 diabetes, it definitely affects the energy level. What I found that helps is the drink before bed with apple cider vinegar the recipe is in this post Amazing Cinnamon Supplement Side Effects.  Started taking this a month ago and it really has boosted my energy level.

  • Lok Which says:

    Thanks for this informative and educative post. This is a must read for every man who wishes himself a good health as he got older. I found this article and I’ve learnt things I really need to know about energy supplements. I never knew banana is a good energy booster until I read this. Thanks for this information
