Tired and exhausted? The demands on yourself and those around you are increasing. Again and again we strive to bring everyone and everything under one roof. Buffalo at school or university, maximum concentration and productivity in the workplace. And then you want to do justice to family and friends in your free time. Tiredness, exhaustion or exhaustion are therefore symptoms of our time. Take care of yourself and your health in good time! Learn to say "No" in a friendly way and to take your time off. However, it is also important to have an adequate supply of nutrients. The vitamin B complex in particular plays an important role for the nerves and the energy metabolism.
Vitamin B12 in particular is one of the vitamins that are required for a healthy nervous system and energy production. Vitamin B12 also helps reduce tiredness and exhaustion.
Although we are very lucky that we have a lot of food available, large sections of the population are not adequately supplied with vitamins and trace elements.
There are many reasons for an inadequate supply of vitamin B12:
In fact, all B vitamins are very delicate and can be easily destroyed by cooking and storage.
Vitamin B12 is found in many animal products such as meat, eggs and milk, while it is rarely found in plant-based foods. Those who follow a purely vegetarian diet and also do without dairy products and eggs take in almost no vitamin B12 through their diet.
A special protein is required to absorb the vitamin in the body. Unfortunately, the production of protein decreases with advancing age, so that the body also has less vitamin B12 available as a result.
All-rounder vitamin B12:
A sufficient supply of vitamin B12 therefore plays an important role for health, energy and performance!
To be efficient, fit and vital, that's what we all want. In addition to getting enough exercise, diet also plays an important role. Not only vitamins, minerals or trace elements are important, but also the amino acids.
Humans are made up of 20% proteins, which are involved in almost all biological processes and take on key functions. The amino acids are considered to be the basic building blocks of these proteins and are therefore also referred to as the “building blocks of life”.
We take in proteins through our food, for example from fish, meat, eggs, cheese or soy. These proteins have to be broken down into amino acids by our body and then converted back into body protein according to a specific blueprint. So structure-building body protein is made from food protein.
The body cannot produce some amino acids itself; they are considered essential and must be taken in through food.
The body can produce the most well-known amino acids arginine and histidine itself, but not in sufficient quantities in certain needs and stress situations. They are therefore called semi-essential amino acids.
8 essential amino acids:
(Supply via food necessary)
2 semi-essential amino acids:
(Supply useful in situations of need)
Tip: Amino acids in food supplements should have a natural structure. This is indicated by an “L-” in front of the amino acid (for example “L-lysine”).
