Natural ways to beat heat-related fatigue
Hot, muggy summer weather can zap your energy level, especially as you age. While caffeine is tempting, alternative medicine expert Bryce Wylde cautions that consuming caffeine after 12 p.m. will throw off your circadian rhythm. “You won’t get a really deep, relaxed sleep which is so important for longevity and energy,” he told viewers of NBC-TV’s San Antonio Living. He said that NMN supports energy production and manages circadian rhythm.
Wylde gave viewers a quick science lesson, explaining that the mitochondria in our cells need fuel to produce energy (ATP). NMN supports cellular energy, or ATP, production. Wylde has used NMN with his patients in his clinical practice for more than 20 years. “A tiny scoop of ProHealth Longevity NMN is a science-backed, healthy aging supplement for people with an active lifestyle who want more energy,” he confirmed.
Other energy-boosting tips that Wylde offered include:
- Avoid refined carbohydrates such as cakes and cookies. “Those will give you an energy peak but they will also cause you to crash,” Wylde elaborated.
- Incorporate 30 minutes of weight-bearing activity into your daily routine. “We’re meant to push, pull, jump and squat ... You have to expend energy to increase your energy credit.”
- Fuel your cells with slow-burning carbohydrates such as yams, walnuts, eggs and avocados.
- Help your cells to detoxify with beets and ginger so they can work more efficiently.
Wylde directed the NBC-TV viewers to our website to find research supporting his advice. “Before you buy anything, educate yourself!” he emphasized.
