How To Avoid Fatigue With IV Therapy
One of the main reasons why clients come to vitality iv studio is because of “fatigue”. It could be a general lack of energy, brain fog or even muscles which tire easily with minimal effort.
Fatigue is basically an energy imbalance. Our cells DEMAND more energy than our cells have available to SUPPLY.
Read that again… it’s more profound than at first glance.
When faced with fatigue we need to ask ourselves: Why aren’t I able to make enough energy? What aspect of my life is consuming so many resources? Is it an infection? Is it toxicity? Is it a hormonal imbalance? Worrying thoughts? How long can I keep going like this before something else breaks down?
Here’s a little techy explanation on how cells create energy.
Our bodies make energy in the form of ATP. This is the molecule that the body uses as the energy source, like gasoline for a car, in every cell kind of like going on a road trip, we use up that gasoline, ATP it is made in our cells in the Mitochondria.
Damage to mitochondria can happen and they can even die when exposed to antibiotics and free radicals.
Fatigue and Mitochondria:
Energy production in mitochondria is absolutely essential to sustain life itself and it plays a part in anything from physical strength, to endurance and alertness. Even a slight decrease in the production of energy from mitochondria can quickly manifest as physical weakness, inability to concentrate (brain fog) and fatigue.
It’s in the mitochondria that the food we eat in the form of protein, fats and carbohydrates finally gets converted to energy in the form of ATP.
What are the Co-Factors “Helpers” needed for the mitochondria to make energy?
- B-complex, meaning all of the B vitamins, but especially B1, B2 and B3
- Magnesium (a mineral)
- Zinc (a mineral)
- Manganese (a mineral)
- Glutathione (the master antioxidant)
- NAD (derived from Vitamin B3).
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (aka. Lipoate, an antioxidant)
- l-Carnitine (shuttles fat)
