There are different types of energy boosting supplements, including those that provide 'quick-fix' support via stimulant effects. Despite providing an initial surge of energy, this approach can actually be counterproductive and deplete energy overall. A healthier approach is to support your energy metabolism, through influencing the body's energy production processes, improving sleep and addressing stress.
The energy required to support every known biological function occurs within the mitochondrial ‘powerhouse’ – small structures found within almost all living human cells. If levels of certain nutrients diminish in the body, either through reduced synthesis or through an increased turnover, then the rate of energy ‘output’ can be compromised. Symptoms can manifest as feeling slightly rundown or, in very extreme cases, as chronic fatigue syndrome – the marker of abnormal energy management seen in conditions such as ME/CFS.
One of the processes heavily affected in CFS sufferers is fatty acid production and low levels of fatty acids, particularly EPA, are a common feature in CFS patients. EPA, along with other fatty acids, is vitally important for the proper functioning of the immune system and in regulating inflammation, which is also negatively affected in CFS. Fatty acid deficiency is therefore a considerable problem, given that high levels of inflammatory cytokines are known to produce symptoms of fatigue, as well as pain and muscle aches. EPA also plays a crucial role in cellular communication and is particularly important for brain function and central nervous system activity.
Pharmepa® Restore & Maintain™,Super-B Complex and VESIsorb® Ubiquinol-QH are formulated to boost energy, vitality and help combat fatigue, whilst delivering additional support for coping with the demands of modern life and restoring vitality.
Viral infections seen in ME/CFS negatively impact fatty acid production in the body, wtih adverse effects on immune and inflammation regulation. Supplementing with pure EPA omega-3 can help overcome the associated symptoms such as brain fog, fatigue and pain - as well as being directly virucidal too.
Poor mitochondrial function has been implicated as having a causal role in ME/CFS. Mitochondrial failure results in poor production of the chemical ATP - the body's energy currency. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is one of the key raw materials needed by the body to produce ATP. Ubiquinol is the most potent, body-ready form of CoQ10 and is especially beneficial for people with energy issues.
