Energy and Vitality
Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are macronutrients that constitute most of the weight of your diet while providing your body with energy. The food that enters your body goes through a complex process of digestion, assimilation, transport, conversion and the culminating step of ATP production, which is the energy equivalent in your body. The body stores reserve energy as complex carbohydrates and fats which are called upon when blood glucose plummets due to fasting or other demands such as illness or physical exercise. These stores are broken down to provide a constant supply of raw material for ATP synthesis. ATP production takes place in the mitochondria through a biochemical cycle called aerobic respiration.
Numerous essential minerals such as magnesium, calcium, manganese and zinc as well as vitamins, especially B-complex, are essential for the health functioning of the generation of ATP through the process of respiration and they protect us from fatigue.
There are three factors that have an impact on our energy expenditure, namely:
- Basal metabolic rate: the number of calories the body needs to maintain bodily functions in a resting state.
- Thermic effect of food: the number of calories required to digest, absorb, transport, and store food.
- Physical activity: the number of calories expended during daily activities, lifestyle and exercise.
The brain controls your energy production by stimulating or supressing energy production through messengers, called hormones. Our body is drained of its resources and energy during an energy overdrive such as during an illness caused by chronic bacterial, viral or parasitic infections.
During heightened demand for energy such as during an infection or illness, the nutrients supplied by a normal diet fail to meet the growing demand. This deficiency is met by supplementation of nutrients by intake of vitamins, minerals, and energy-rich diet. Supplementing your diet using natural supplements is a healthy and effective way to attain energy and vitality both during health and sickness.
