There are days, weeks, and even months when fatigue is taking over. From the moment of entry to the last hour of the day, the feeling of fatigue and sleep becomes an obstacle to overcome people who suffer.
Everyday situations that take the routine of physical activity begin to emerge little by little, and the lack of physical energy takes people's lives. Two hours of walking at good speed and suddenly, the person is not able to climb that hill. Get to the touch of the ball and that your legs are bent while the player falls, unable to complete a series of squats and have to take a break to get up.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines physical activity as "all movements that are part of everyday life, including work, recreation, exercise and sports activities."
In this context, the doctor Ruben Müllberger, an expert in orthomolecular medicine, genomics and anti-aging, lists the 11 most common causes that make the person feel less energy. These are:
–Iron deficiency: Anemia generates that the body receives less oxygen, causing exhaustion and fatigue.
–Deficiency of vitamin B12: lack of red blood cells can cause anemia and weakness.
–Lack of hydration: Dehydration can cause fatigue and exhaustion of the muscles. It is recommended to drink 1 liter per hour of intense physical activity and ½ liter if we practice moderate physical activity.
–Excessive stimulant drinks: After the energy effect, energy drinks or coffee can cause more fatigue.
-Tyroid problem: dysfunction of this gland can cause apathy and exhaustion.
–Surplus of stress: nerves and anxiety transform the positive energy into a negative, weakening the man excessively.
-Lack of catecholamine: This aminorhomone, which helps people feel alert and excited, in a small amount can cause a feeling of lamentation and depression.
–Deficiency of tyrosine: amino acid that produces dopamine and produces an antistress effect. If it is not in the right balance, it generates the opposite effect by removing all the energy.
–An excess of simple sugars: foods that increase blood sugar create fatigue and drowsiness.
–Glucogen deficiency: It can happen in great competition or sports demand. The ingestion of carbohydrates every 60 minutes of training will reward weakened muscles.
–Excess lactate: fatigue resulting from physical intensity, causing acute muscle pain and sudden decrease in performance. If possible, avoid passing an anaerobic threshold.
When a person feels that he has reached his limit
Fatigue is closely associated with a decline in physical performance. For the universe of sport, he is a synonym of fatigue. But for the medical world, fatigue is "a characteristic symptom of heart failure," he said. Kenneth Dickstein, a professor of medicine at the University of Bergen, Norway.
"Patients often call it immoral exercise, which can lead to a diagnosis of heart failure, so testing is essential to confirm beyond the cause," Dickstein said.
On the other hand, for the South African scientist Timothy David Knox, who presented the theory of the Central Governor, fatigue is "an emotion derived from the brain that regulates exercise behavior to guarantee the protection of whole body homeostasis".
"Anyway, revealing why the lack of energy in the body is a fundamental factor in attacking the root problem and does not give up physical activity." Several studies have shown that 30 minutes of physical activity of moderate intensity from the days of the week is enough to prevent diseases and achieve a healthy and long life, "he concluded.
