Which Dietary Supplements Work Best for Chronic Fatigue?

Chronic fatigue is a health condition that more people experience as they get older. It is a condition where they constantly feel sleepy throughout the day, even if they get eight hours of sleep each night.

Some of the causes of chronic fatigue have been linked to poor eating habits, viral infections, and psychological conditions such as depression, stress, neuroticism, and obsessive compulsive disorder.

Most people who experience chronic fatigue syndrome don’t even think they have it.

They just assume they didn’t get enough sleep or are working too hard. It usually takes a health practitioner to diagnose this condition, but you can figure it out if you simply notice the signs of it.

There are a number of vitamin and mineral supplements you can take to reduce the symptoms of chronic fatigue.

Omega-3 fatty acids in supplement form are popular to take for this. Numerous studies have shown that people with chronic fatigue tend to have low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their body.

These fatty acids are naturally obtained from foods like fish, nuts and eggs. However, most people don’t eat these foods on a regular basis so they tend to have low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in them. So if you were to take a fish oil supplement then this would give you the fatty acids you need to reduce fatigue.

If you are looking for an energy boost, then try taking magnesium and malic acid supplements together. You may get some diarrhea if you have too much magnesium so try to keep your dosage at 600 mg taken twice each day.

Another nutrient supplement that promotes energy production in the cells of your body is L-carnitine. You can take this with Vitamin B12 or the Ginseng herbal supplement to give yourself a nice healthy energy boost. But if energy boosting isn’t doing the trick, then you may have some kind of immune deficiency disorder. Therefore, you will want to take an effective immune booster to give your immune system a boost.

In emergency situations where you need fast results, caffeine can give you a quick temporary boost out of your fatigue. But you will end up paying the price later on because your fatigue will increase quickly once the caffeine boost wears off. That is why people who drink caffeine on a regular basis tend to experience more fatigue than energy. So if you drink caffeinated beverages like tea or coffee then try to cut them out of your diet.
