RECLAIM Your Energy with This Fatigue Defeater
Dear Living Well Daily Readers,
Severe tiredness and exhaustion go hand in hand with cancer, and it’s horrible.
The worse the cancer and more extensive the treatment, the worse the fatigue.
Ask any mainstream doctor about relief from fatigue and they will say something like, “unfortunately, good pharmacological treatment options are limited.” Which means: the drugs used for exhaustion have a ton of side effects and are very addictive.
The good news is, there IS something that can help you… and it’s not a prescription stimulant.
Research has found that this natural fatigue defeater could help you get reclaim your energy.
And it’s one you should be taking it anyway!
The answer is simple: vitamin D.
In a recently published study in the journal Cancers, researchers were able to reduce fatigue in men by correcting their vitamin D deficiency.
There are a few things to know about this study.
The first is that the fatigue-busting effects of vitamin D were in people who had low vitamin D levels to start out with. That means, if you don’t currently have a vitamin D deficiency, this method might not do anything for you.
That being said, low vitamin D is a very common deficiency. Unless you live south of Atlanta, Georgia, chances are you’re not getting enough vitamin D during the winter. Even if you live in a southern state, you can be vitamin D deficient if you’re not out in the sun enough, cover up your skin, or use sunscreen too much.
The second thing about this study is that the effect only appeared in men. This good news is, researchers are going to launch a new study to look closer at the differences in sex and vitamin D supplementation.
If you’re a man, your pathway is clear: take vitamin D.
If you’re a woman, your pathway is also clear: take vitamin D. Taking vitamin D has so many other positive effects: reducing the risk of heart disease, improving bone health, supporting a healthy immune system, improving your mood, supporting weight loss, and so much more.
Talk to your doctor about having your vitamin D levels checked, and then go from there.
P.S. If you’re looking for more ways to banish fatigue, you have to see this. Researchers have discovered how to ZAP AWA fatigue!
