Chronic Fatigue, more commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a condition of prolonged and severe tiredness or weariness (fatigue) that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other conditions. To be diagnosed with this condition, your tiredness must be severe enough to reduce your ability to participate in daily activities by at least 50 percent.
Studies have shown that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may be caused by inflammation of nervous system pathways, bacterial infection with mycoplasma, or viral illness due to Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), complicated by an inadequate or dysfunctional immune response. CFS follows an injury, preoperative or postoperative infection such as peritonitis, or various types of trauma that adversely affect your immune system.
Factors such as age, environment, genetic disposition, prior illness, or stress may influence the onset of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It principally affects women in their 40s and 50s, but men are not spared either. Research studies have reported significant symptomatic relief with the use of dietary supplements.
Colostrum fulfils the nutritive deficiencies seen in chronic fatigue syndrome enhancing both strength and stamina. The body of a person with chronic fatigue is deficient in immune and growth factors which help our bodies fight off disease and heal damaged body tissues. MIP colostrum provides the body with natural growth factors and immune factors that bring about homeostasis in the body, thus promoting health and wellbeing.
Colostrum contains the broadest possible spectrum of biologically active substances that promote a sound body and it has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties as well. MIP colostrum also relieves stress which can have an uplifting effect on the ‘constantly tired’ person with CFS. Proline-Rich Polypeptides (PRP) found in colostrum tones down an overactive immune system which causes allergies and consequently CFS.
NutriNZ Maxi OMEGA-3 Plus: 60 Capsules
Oxidative stress and inappropriate immune system responses lead to the chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) which is normally only treatable through better life choices and keeping fit and healthy. As part of nutritional supplementation to prevent chronic fatigue, doctors recommend the use of Krill oil to lower the levels of oxidative stress and help maintain good lifestyle and dietary choices. The use of Omega-3s is again emphasized here for extreme tiredness that can be provided with the use of Krill oil capsules. It normalizes the hypothalamic suppression in the blood that results in an active body with lower stress levels, and hence, fatigue is easily overcome.
