"I am always tired, no matter how much sleep I get. I have no motivation or energy to do anything - and I am only 29 years old -, a day's work exhausts me. I crave starchy foods and carbs, sugar etc, for energy, or I am falling asleep at work."1
- It’s not like you just ran a half marathon or did a full day’s manual labour. Tiredness can hit for no reason. It can leave you feeling listless, lethargic, lacking in energy, and physically and mentally drained – without necessarily wanting to sleep.
Feeling lack of energy can be really uncomfortable and can affect your everyday life. It gets harder to concentrate and you will not be able to deliver at work. It gets harder to be patient with your kids and loved ones and you will spend less and less time with them. It gets harder to study and prepare for your exams, presentations and you will not be able to deal with other challenges life might throw at you.
But could you be looking in the wrong place for answers? We have an idea! But we will get to that later. Research suggests the answers to unexplained tiredness and fatigue may lie in the gut.
What could be the answer?
Many gut-altering situations we can't really avoid - just like stress. We need to reverse these negative effects and focus on a healthy gut. One way to reach this goal is to consider adding probiotics to your diet.
Dr. John Zibert, Medical Director, Ph.D, M.Sc., B.Sc., explains:
"In recent years it has become clear that the bacteria residing within our gut, collectively called the microbiota, are important for our health. As such, a well-balanced gut microbiota is considered to promote our well-being. Probiotics are known as “good” bacteria that help supplement the bacteria you already have in your gut. For instance, the healthy gut microbiota helps provide a barrier against intruding pathogens, produces certain vitamins and helps maintaining a healthy and balanced immune system."
While you can get probiotics from fermented foods, not everyone has those in their everyday diet. Probiotic supplements are a great way to make sure that you are getting good bacteria every day. There are several different products out on the market and our PhD’s have researched one of the good ones for scientific evidence: it is from PurePharma and it is called Synbiotics SB3.
Synbiotics SB3 from PurePharma combines probiotic (containing live bacteria) and prebiotic (indigestible fibre-based food for bacteria) properties in a convenient, easy-to-use formula.
How does it work? The Synbiotics SB3 formula is scientifically proven to balance the gut microbiota, delivering the accompanying health benefits, boosting energy levels, and fighting fatigue. As well as 13 billion live bacteria, each stick of Synbiotics SB3 also contains Vitamin C, which protects cells from oxidative stress and inflammation and boosts the immune system.
It is available in a freeze-dried form to carry wherever you go - and you just add water or juice to activate the probiotic bacteria before drinking it.
