The Other Options

Most energy beverages rely heavily on sugars and stimulants such as caffeine. Large quantities of carbohydrates (sugars) can cause a glucose crash a few hours after consumption, accompanied by symptoms of lethargy and irritation. Meanwhile, the overconsumption of caffeine may result in nervousness, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, heart palpitations, and higher blood pressure. Since 2009, there have been hundreds of filings with the FDA in which energy beverages were implicated in serious health issues. Of these, there are several documented cases of heart attacks, convulsions, seizures, and even spontaneous abortion, and four documented cases of caffeine-associated death. Other stimulant compounds such as yohimbine and guarana have similar adverse effects. Sustained consumption of energy beverages can increase heart rate, blood pressure, and risk of heart attack or stroke.

Pre-workout supplements are designed to improve energy and endurance during workouts, in addition to increasing the bodys fat burning and nutrient delivery functions. Pre-workout supplements often include a large number of biological compounds designed to enhance performance. Beta-alanine dilates blood vessels to enable aerobic capacity, while alpha-ketoglutarate is said to reduce ammonia toxicity. Most controversial is DMAA (1-3 dimethylamylamine), a thermogenic stimulant that is said to be like Adderall, but in a non-prescription form. This combination of vasodilators and cardiac stimulants can place extreme stress on the heart. Side effects may include jitters, high blood pressure and severe tunnel vision, and there have been a number of DMAA-associated deaths. In addition, due to their high dependence on caffeine, users quickly build up a tolerance to their pre-workout supplement of choice.

The HERBALmax Solution

The HERBALmax™ Energy & Focus Formula is designed from Chinese herbs traditionally used for low energy. 100% natural, it is safe for those with clinically relevant underlying medical conditions such as heart disease and hypertension. Atractylodes macrocephala provides vital energy and relieves stress, while the cycloastragenol inside astragalus reduces the aging process within cells. Ginseng and eucommia bark are natural stimulants which boost energy without the chance of a later crash. Long-lasting and fast-acting, the Energy & Focus Formula has been used by Dr. Zhang in her private practice for many years and has no known side effects.

As opposed to energy beverages, which rely heavily on sugar and stimulants to yield a temporary high, the Energy & Focus Formula promises no sudden and unnatural comedown. The exclusion of harsh stimulants prevents any possibility of dangerous side effects such as nervousness, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, heart palpitations, and higher blood pressure. The ingredients in the Energy & Focus Formula also provide sustained energy for workout training and bodybuilding without using vasodilators or cardiac stimulants, avoiding any unnecessary strains on the heart. In addition, the caffeine-free formula does not foster dependency and can be used as a dependable supplement for any occasion. The Energy & Focus Formula is unique in that it provides a boost suitable for both academic exertion and physical intensity.

a. Causes of Fatigue

With our busy, over-stressed and over-booked lifestyles, chronic weariness has become an increasingly common affliction. Over a fifth of the population suffers from a constant lack of energy, and a tenth experience prolonged fatigue. This persistent tiredness is more common in women than in men.

Chronic fatigue can be caused by a large number of physical and mental factors. Although some may be relatively minor problems with easy fixes, this tiredness can be symptomatic of serious illness.

Physical Causes

An unhealthy, irregular diet is a key contributor in causing chronic fatigue. Something as simple as moderate dehydration can result in feelings of mental sluggishness and impeded concentration. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies may yield similar symptoms. In addition, eating too little or choosing unhealthy options often results in problems.

For example, although sugar or caffeine may seem like tempting solutions for a quick energy fix, both can result in a wear-off energy “crash” that results in feeling even more tired than before. Sugar and high-carbohydrate foods cause a rapid spike in blood glucose. The body’s homeostatic mechanisms attempt to bring blood sugar levels back to normal by releasing the hormone insulin. Insulin initiates rapid glucose uptake by the cells, which in turn causes a sudden fall in blood glucose levels. This feeling of post-consumption fatigue is commonly known as a “sugar crash.”

Meanwhile, caffeine, a central nervous system stimulant, causes rapid neuronal firing and the production of adrenaline. Adrenaline is the main source of the body’s “fight-or-flight” response and serves to increase heart rate and respiratory rate. When this adrenal high wears off, the ensuing drop can result in headaches, fatigue, and irritability.

Lack of sleep, though obvious, is another common source of prolonged tiredness. Teenagers require nine hours of sleep a night, while most adults need seven to eight hours. Similarly, exercise is another easily controllable factor that often causes chronic fatigue. Lack of exercise promotes a sedentary lifestyle while regular exercise breeds energy.

Although the above are the most typical reasons behind chronic fatigue, there are several medical conditions which may yield similar symptoms. Of these, anemia is by far the most common. Anemia is also easy to diagnose with a simple blood test and relatively simple to treat through changing one’s diet and taking iron supplements. Sleep apnea, a condition where the throat narrows during sleep and impedes breathing, also results in persistent feelings of exhaustion the next day. An underactive thyroid, again more common in women, yields a hormone deficiency resulting in fatigue and weight gain. Constant tiredness may also be symptomatic of diabetes, a serious long-term condition involving elevated blood sugar levels that can be checked with a blood test. Other possible causes include medication side-effects, liver virus, and cardiovascular disease.

Emotional and Mental Causes

A large variety of daily stressors can result in feelings of tiredness, from divorce to problems at work to moving homes to simply boredom. Stress is a common trigger for tiredness, as feelings of extreme or continual stress can be tremendously draining. Anxiety, too, has the potential to cause prolonged fatigue, especially for those suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and the subsequent constant, uncontrollable feelings of anxiety. Grief resulting from situations such as bereavement may have similar symptoms. Lastly, depression often goes hand-in-hand with feeling drained of energy and motivation.

b. Treatment

Because of the complex etiology of chronic fatigue, there is no universally effective treatment or cure. However, if the lack of energy is not the result of a specific medical problem, staying active with the following lifestyle changes can be helpful:

  • Eat a balanced, healthy diet
    • Eat more complex carbohydrates (eggs, whole wheat toast)
    • Avoid large amounts of sugar and fat
    • Don’t skip meals
    • Drink water regularly
  • Exercise regularly
  • Get enough sleep
  • Minimize stress
  • Take time for yourself
