Causes of low energy
There are many causes of low energy including poor digestion, certain medications (such as antianxiety drugs, antidepressants, high blood pressure medications and statins), underactive thyroid, dehydration, lack of exercise and nutrient deficiencies.
Symptoms of low energy
Low energy production in your cells can affect you both physically and mentally. Symptoms can include tiredness, fatigue no matter how much sleep you’ve gotten, a feeling of malaise, forgetfulness, brain fog and impaired cognitive function.
Long-term effects of low energy
Over time, untreated low cell energy production can lead to memory troubles, muscle weakness, and chronic fatigue, and affect your ability to engage in activities such as work, school and household chores. Your immune function can also be affected, making you more susceptible to viruses and infections.
Remedies for low energy
It’s crucial to pinpoint what is causing your low energy and address the underlying factors. Having a healthy diet of nutritious foods can help, as well as getting regular exercise and drinking enough water. Eating simpler meals can help boost digestion which is important because digestion uses lots of energy.
