Raisin Your Spirits
Iron in the Afternoon
It can’t be helped. On those days when you’re giving it your all, there’s an inevitable lull in the afternoon. You’ve had a healthy breakfast and a sensibly sized lunch, so what’s with the drowsies? How to push through and max the day out at 100%?
The answer is Iron. Not only is it a staple nutrient, but as one of nature’s essential elements, it has incredible qualities that can help minimize your sleepiness. Iron is a constituent part of every blood cell, which means there’s material that can conduct electricity pretty much everywhere in your body. Raisins are exceptionally high in iron and are probably the easiest snack to keep around the office. So scoop up a handful or two and put on an energetic a mantra. You’ll feel the melody coursing through your veins and your energy levels holding steady. Get it done with a kiss from the sun!
