It’s 11am and you’re already reaching for your fifth coffee for the day. No you aren’t recovering from a late night and you didn’t wake up any earlier than usual, you’re suffering from an unexplained case of TATT (tired all the time). And you’re certainly not alone.
Research suggests that feelings of fatigue affect as many as one in five people on any given day, with women suffering the most . One in ten people report low energy levels persistently, hugely impacting on their day-to-day functioning and undermining their quality of life.
Feeling tired all the time is one of the most common complaints heard in doctors’ surgeries, but the struggle to find a solution still remains. Reduced energy levels can be triggered by a large number of medical and lifestyle factors, with common culprits including anaemia, poor thyroid function, lack of physical exercise, inadequate diet and stress.
How BioCare® Can Help Boost Your Energy Levels
BioCare has developed a range of concentrated, great tasting, easy to mix powder sachets that are the perfect solution for those seeking to boost or balance their energy levels. Offering optimal convenience and flexibility, all products mix easily with liquids and can be used singly or in combination, depending on your individual needs.
AD Intensive helps to balance blood sugar levels and support the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands produce various hormones that affect our ability to deal with stress. AD Intensive includes citrulline, licorice, ginseng and chromium alongside vitamins C, B3, B5 and magnesium, which support energy production and helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin C also helps to protect cells from oxidative stress, whilst chromium helps maintain normal blood glucose levels which are essential for stabilising fluctuating energy levels.
NT Intensive supports a balanced nervous system. It contains a blend of amino acids, lecithin, magnesium and the unique ingredient Cyracos® (lemon balm extract). L-Tryptophan, an amino acid involved in the production of serotonin (the happy hormone) and melatonin (the sleep hormone) are other active ingredients, making NT Intensive an ideal choice to support relaxation.
TH Intensive is designed to support thyroid function. The thyroid gland is critical to a wide range of functions, especially controlling the metabolism. TH Intensive includes iodine which supports the production of thyroid hormones, and selenium which supports normal thyroid function. It also includes amino acids and antioxidants such as vitamin C and zinc which help to protect cells from oxidative stress.
MitoGuard® Intensive supports cellular energy production. The mitochondria contained in our body cells are the power plants of the body and generate energy. They can be prone to oxidative damage and impaired function. MitoGuard® Intensive is designed to support the function of the mitochondria and cellular energy production. This product combines d-ribose, CoQ10 and amino acids with magnesium and B vitamins which are essential components of energy production and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Perform Intensive helps to boost energy and the circulation of nutrients in the body, making it an ideal option to take before exercise. Perform Intensive combines arginine, citrulline, glutamine and a unique beetroot extract with vitamin B3. Perform Intensive is ideal for those who exercise regularly, as well as those looking for a fast and convenient energy boost.
Refresh Intensive provides energy and electrolyte support. Just after exercise or periods of stress or illness, there is an increased need for the body to replenish key nutrients and energy stores.
Refresh Intensive provides energy and electrolyte support thanks to the inclusion of sodium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, B vitamins and creatine, making it a great post-exercise choice.
