Question: I am always on the go, but I also feel very tired all the time. Is there anything I can do to get back my energy?

Answer (Dr. Martin): In this day and age, many of us spend our lives “burning the candle at both ends” and then wondering where all of our youthful energy went. Before most of us know it, we have spent 20+ years expending twice the energy of our parents and still having our lives to live. It’s no wonder many people are just exhausted all the time.

Over the years, there have been many suggestions to get back your energy or to keep you moving. Coffee has been a favorite of many (including me) and adding supplements to your diet, such as protein drinks, ginseng and other botanicals, have been utilized by many to get back the pep that they had when they were younger.

As our generations age, and our population over 50 increases, we will see many different ways to address fatigue, but the one thing that has never been studied, until now, is WHY we get tired.

To get down to the root of the problem, researchers studied different parts of the body structures and found that the cell membranes and the mitochondria in the cell were a good measurement device of fatigue, as destruction of the cell walls and loss of mitochondrial functional capacity was noted in all subjects with fatigue. Using these findings, it was noted that a loss of phosphoglycolipids in the cell nutrients, leads to loss of the functional capacity of a cell, thus producing less energy.

A few companies then worked on developing a nutritional supplementation that would provide phosphoglycolipids [also called phospholipids] to the cellular structures, and the end result was a product call NT Factor. A study was done on elderly patients (average age 67) who were provided NT Factor for a period of 8 weeks and measured with the Piper Fatigue Scale. After the trial period, there was a 33% average reduction in fatigue factors, and studies of the mitochondrial function showed development and activity levels normally seen in middle age.

Removal of NT Factor from the study group showed a decline in functional capacity, and a return to supplementation brought the levels back up. This was a successful test of a newer product.

Since NT Factor is relatively new (and costly to produce) it is quite expensive. Hopefully, as the production increases, we will see a price reduction to make this product available to everyone. It’s not the final answer to our daily fatigue, but it is a step in the right direction to helping us to continue our lives without feeling tired.
