It could just be me, but recently it feels like everyone I’ve spoken to is feeling utterly burnt out. 😣
Five years ago, I would have instantly thought about your adrenal health and how it can be supported. But there’s a new school of thought emerging suggesting that supporting your mitochondria during stress related fatigue is JUST as important, if not more. The ‘antidote’? Well you’ll need to watch the episode to find out my top recommendations.

Great sources of Carnitine are red meats, particularly lamb and beef and dairy products (quality matters when eating animal sourced foods). There’s little to no carnitine in vegetables and grains, but your body can make it from the amino acid lysine found in legumes; so if you’re plant-based this will be your best option; you may also want to consider supplementation.
Eggs, naturally fatty fish, organ meats and poultry are your best food sources of CoQ10. Plant sources? Broccoli and pistachios are great. Again, the body is capable of making CoQ10, but you may want to consider supplementation as part of a balanced and varied diet.
Finally, magnesium is found by the droves in nuts and seeds like almonds, cashews and sesame; in spinach, black eyed beans and some fatty fish like salmon, halibut and mackerel. There’s lots to choose from that’ll add so much flavour and texture on your plate!
