Tired all the Time? Here are some Tips to Help you

Tired All the Time and Lost Your ‘Get Up and Go?’

Lack of energy can often be misunderstood, especially when diagnostic procedures (such as blood tests) do not show any imbalance in your body.

If you are tired all the time, don’t accept this as normal.

Tired all the time? It could be your Mitochondria.

Your Wellness Centre Naturopathy - Energy - MitochondriaWhen you’re feeling tired, it is important to consider whether you have the nutrients required for optimal energy. If you’re not providing your body with the nutrients it needs, it can be hard to jump out of bed feeling refreshed. The energy powerhouses within your body are known as mitochondria; and are present in almost all of your cells. During a busy day, your mitochondria produce all of the energy you need, however, producing energy relies on a steady stream of nutrients. If your mitochondria do not receive adequate nutrition, they cannot perform at their best!

7 Nutrients to overcome Fatigue

When your body needs energy, it calls on the following nutrients to keep you energised:

  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): is a vital nutrient used by your mitochondria in the process of energy production. It also protects against daily damage.
  • Magnesium: helps your body transform the food you eat into energy. Once created, units of energy must also bind to magnesium before they can be used by the body.
  • B group vitamins: enter the mitochondria, where they are used to synthesise energy, and assist the mitochondria.
  • D-Ribose: This is a very special 5 carbon sugar that helps make up ATP or energy in the body. Taken as a powder it helps directly fuel the energy pathways in our most vital tissues such as heart, brain, and muscles significantly improving fatigue.
  • R-alpha lipoic acid: This is a powerful antioxidant that protects the mitochondria against free radical damage, supporting cellular energy production. It works with B vitamins to more efficiently convert carbs, fats, and protein into fuel.
  • N-Acetyl Cysteine: One of the building blocks of our bodies’ master antioxidant Glutathione.
  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine: brings fats into your mitochondria to burn for energy.

Want To Be Bursting With Energy?

Energising yourself also means creating a diet and lifestyle that supports your energy stores:

  • Fresh veggies and nuts - Your Wellness Centre NaturopathyEat foods rich in unrefined and unprocessed carbohydrates, protein and fat; the primary ingredients for energy production.
  • Avoid stimulants such as caffeine, which can drain your energy and deplete vitalising nutrients including your B vitamins. Sleep for seven to nine hours each night.
  • Destress by spending time in nature, meditating and having fun!

“Being busy and feeling stressed, places
increased pressure on your mitochondria.”

  • Exercise four to five times per week. Exercise stimulates your body to make new mitochondria, resulting in more energy!
  • When feeling very fatigued, go for a regular walk, swim or yoga class which will be beneficial for your energy levels than staying sedentary.
