Fuel your body on a cellular level with these 6 powerhouse nutrients

Being tired isn’t always a result of a poor night’s sleep. Low levels of key vitamins and minerals can leave you feeling blah regardless of your bedtime. Here’s how UP Proteins keeps you physically and mentally energized.

Boosting energy levels is about so much more than getting your morning coffee fix. To be truly energized, on a cellular level, you need to exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and eat a well-balanced diet. Beyond that, several key nutrients play a critical role in the conversion of food to energy and your ability to power through a hectic work week—or workout—without running yourself ragged. Take a look at UP Protein’s energy-revving lineup.

B-complex vitamins:

converts food into usable energy

All B-complex vitamins (which include vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folate, biotin, and pantothenic acid) help convert carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from the food you eat into a form of energy that can be used by the body. Vitamin B12, specifically, aids in the production of red blood cells, which helps prevent a form of anemia that can lead to fatigue. Aside from vitamin B12 (found only in animal-based foods), B vitamins are found readily in a variety of fruits and vegetables. UP Proteins contains 50% of your daily needs for all B-complex vitamins.


provides the brain and body with oxygen

Iron helps produce hemoglobin, a protein that allows red blood cells to carry oxygen all over the body. With low iron levels, not enough oxygen reaches your muscles or brain, depriving them of energy, which can lead to both physical and mental fatigue. Low levels of ferritin (your body’s stored form of iron) have been associated with muscle fatigue and weakness, as well as difficulty concentrating. UP Proteins contains 30% of your daily iron needs from sources such as spinach, chlorella, chia seeds, amaranth, and oats.

Vitamin C:

supports energy production + boosts iron absorption

In addition to helping your body absorb plant-based sources of iron more efficiently, vitamin C helps make enzymes that synthesize carnitine-a compound that transports fatty acids into the mitochondria (a.k.a. powerhouses) of cells where they’re “burned” to produce energy. In some instances, research suggests that replenishing low vitamin C levels may help combat fatigue. Ingredients in UP Proteins such as acai berry, blackberries, spinach, and broccoli are high in vitamin C, and one serving of UP Proteins contains 33% of your daily vitamin C needs.


aids in production of ATP

Phosphorus plays an important role in how the body uses carbohydrates and fats, and it helps produce ATP-a molecule the body uses to store energy and power a variety of biological processes. Additionally, the phosphorus-containing molecule 2,3-DPG binds to the hemoglobin in red blood cells and helps regulate oxygen delivery to tissues in the body. Phosphorus is readily available from many foods, and UP Proteins contains 40% of your daily needs.


aids in production of ATP + combats muscle fatigue

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including in the production and utilization of ATP-a molecule used to store energy and drive many cellular processes. Some of the first signs of magnesium deficiency are fatigue and weakness. Research suggests that increasing magnesium intake may be beneficial for combating perceived levels of fatigue, as well as muscle fatigue during exercise. Ingredients in UP Proteins such as kale, spinach, and cocoa contain magnesium, and one serving of UP Proteins packs 60% of your daily needs

Vitamin D:

combats physical + mental fatigue

Vitamin D deficiency is fairly common, and low levels have been associated with overall fatigue as well as muscle fatigue and weakness. The good news: Restoring healthy levels of this vitamin can ease these symptoms, as well as improve muscle functioning and efficiency. While vitamin D is often difficult to find from plant-based dietary sources, UP Proteins contains 25% of your daily needs.
