Do you always asking yourself, “Why am I so tired?”
Don’t blow it off. Give yourself about 2 to 3 weeks to make some lifestyle changes: Trim your social schedule, scale back your workload at the office, and try to sleep more. If you’re still feeling the symptoms of fatigue after those changes, then you need professional help. Excess exhaustion could be the sign of a more serious medical condition that can be treated. Also it’s not surprising that nutrient, vitamins and minerals deficiencies can cause low energy. Here are some of the causes of fatigue.
One of the most common medical reasons for feeling constantly run down is iron deficiency anaemia. Women with heavy periods and pregnant women are especially prone to anaemia. But it can also affect men and postmenopausal women, when the cause is more likely to be problems with the stomach and intestines, such as an ulcer or taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Typically, you feel your muscles are heavy, you can’t do anything, and you get tired very quickly.
As well as making you feel very sad, depression can also make you feel drained of energy. It can stop you falling asleep or cause you to wake up early in the morning, which makes you feel more tired during the day
One of the main symptoms of diabetes, a long-term condition caused by too much sugar (glucose) in the blood, is feeling very tired.
An underactive thyroid gland means you have too little thyroid hormone (thyroxine) in your body. This makes you feel tired.
Sleep apnoea is a condition where your throat narrows or closes during sleep and repeatedly interrupts your breathing. This results in loud snoring and a drop in your blood’s oxygen levels. The difficulty in breathing means you wake up often in the night and feel exhausted the next day.
B Vitamins deficiency
B vitamins are necessary for converting food into energy. If you’re lacking in B vitamins, either because your needs are increased or you’re not taking in sufficient amounts, the ability of your cells’ mitochondria to generate energy will be compromised. The mitochondria are the energy power houses of the cell.
Magnesium is an essential mineral to the human body. It is involved in more than 300 metabolic reactions, a key reaction being energy production. Magnesium is required to form and store the energy molecule ATP. Magnesium deficiency impairs the energy production pathway required by mitochondria to generate ATP.
Antioxidants are chemical compounds that neutralize free radicals by preventing oxygen from reacting with other compounds. Examples include vitamins C and E, the mineral selenium, and the nutrient coenzyme Q10. Like the B vitamins, antioxidants are involved in mitochondrial energy production.
Antioxidant deficiencies, in a way similar to the B vitamin deficiencies, are therefore fatigue. Supplementing with an antioxidant formula which contains high levels of these and other nutrients can help with fatigue.
CoQ10 is a substance that plays a role in cellular respiration and has many antioxidant properties. Using the CoQ10 of Anti Aging perevents fatigue and increases physical excercises ability.
