This is a great question and one that I get asked quite often. As far as vitamins and minerals go, the B vitamins and iron have an indirect correlation with feelings of fatigue. The B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine (B6), and cobalamin (B12)) work together to help your body use the energy you get from food. A deficiency in one or more of these vitamins may cause you to feel fatigued.  You can get enough of the B vitamins by eating a variety of foods from the different food groups, however, if you are not doing so on a regular basis, then a supplement may help fill in the gaps.

Additionally, iron helps carry oxygen throughout your body. If you are not eating enough iron-rich foods you may feel tired or run down. Iron from meat, fish and poultry is better absorbed than iron from plants. Foods high in Vitamin C can help your body absorb more iron, while calcium, coffee and tea decrease your body’s ability to absorb iron. For most people, a well-balanced diet provides enough iron. If you are not meeting the recommended dietary allowance for iron through foods, a supplement may be recommended.

This information is not intended as medical advice, so please consult with your physician prior to taking a dietary supplement.

I hope you find this information helpful!

If we faced this problem frequently and skin also becomes so dull. To recover both these health issues we should need to take fresh juices, proteins and vitamin contained food in our daily plan. While doing this, Mostly we can recover this one.
