Good day,

Nutritional supplements are not likely to correct low blood sugar levels. I must mention that low blood sugar may not be the only reason for your fatigue.

Some lifestyle or health factors are well known to cause fatigue. If you follow a healthy diet, sleep enough and do not suffer with a medical condition that results in fatigue, I would suggest that you have your blood pressure tested (most pharmacies offer blood pressure tests free of charge) – it would be good to have it tested while you feel tired. If your blood pressure is low, this may explain your persistent fatigue. In the case of low blood pressure, Vital Vitacharge would be the correct multivitamin for you to take, since it contains ginseng that can help normalize your blood pressure.

However, if your blood pressure is normal, I would advise to have your iron levels tested, as low iron is also known to cause fatigue. With low iron levels, I would advise you to use the Vital Iron Complex supplement to help normalize your iron levels. (product info: http://www.vital.co.za/shop/minerals/iron-complex/ )

If your blood pressure and iron levels are normal, I would advise that you take Vital Gold as a multivitamin, as this would support your energy levels, especially if you are active with an exercise programme.
