Do you know how to describe fatigue: ‘decreased responsiveness resulting from over-exertion’. This means:
- Your muscles have less strength or speed
- Your nerve system slows down
- Your sensory organs decrease their ability to sense
- You have reduced muscle resistance
- Some of your biological functions have slowed down
- You have a sickness or an infection
When your cells fatigued they swell, they can become leaky, your muscles stop relaxing and start to stiffen up, and adhesions begin to form in your muscles, and they get thicker. Then your muscles are slow to contract and easy to stimulate. When you are feeling fatigued, you just can’t switch off!
Your cells need to be hydrated, and this is managed by your cells’ “electrical” state, which is maintained by your internal chemical processes, and your whole body also manages this.
You can learn how to act younger, feel younger, and perform like you are a youngster again when you understand how much stress you have in your life and how the process of fatigue is playing out in your body.
Eating sugar and using caffeine, increases the oxidation of sugar (Yeo et al., 2005), and can reduce fatigue. Metabolically, sugars and caffeine increase the production of carbon dioxide; in the correct proportion you will likely find this beneficial. Increasing your sugar uptake decreases your release of and your use of fatty acids. So by a variety of mechanisms, this helps to lower your production of ammonia, lactate, and inflammatory cytokines.
As with all things, slow and steady change wins. As always, a balanced blood sugar level is key to your health, as excessive consumption of any food is never considered smart when it comes to optimal blood sugar levels.
