Lack of desire, decreased performance, complete apathy - all symptoms of burnout. But today there is so much planned! Where is the search for alternative energy sources? This was told PhD, director of the Kiev city center Clinical Immunology, chief immunologist Kiev Oleg Nazarov.
cup of coffee.
Natural coffee brewed from freshly ground grains, has many advantages. This beverage enhances intestinal motility and accelerates the outflow of bile, breaks down fats, prevents cholesterol crystallization, but most importantly - stimulates the central nervous system, making a cup of coffee chases sleep, improves mood, increases stamina. But, despite all these positive qualities, no doctor would not take it upon myself to call coffee useful drink as its constituent caffeine is a powerful stimulant that, on the one hand, boosts the nervous system, and on the other - promotes blood pressure and increased blood flow.
That is why caffeinated beverages are contraindicated in cardiovascular diseases and nervous disorders. Do not get involved in coffee and in peptic ulcer and gastritis, because caffeine is irritating to the gastric mucosa. This drink is contraindicated for osteoporosis and as outputs from the body calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium and sodium.
Non-alcoholic energy drinks, which manufacturers are positioning as a means to "recharge the internal battery" is actually not as harmless as they seem. Vitamins and natural stimulants, which are stated as the main source of energy in energotonik very little. Its stimulating effect they have by connecting unjoinable: caffeine, alcohol and taurine - an amino acid that relaxes the nervous system and lowers blood pressure.
Caffeine, on the contrary, constricts blood vessels and raises blood pressure. As a result, a person begins to "sausage", throwing from one extreme to another, due to which there is a sharp stimulation of the nervous system. At the same time, few people know that such shake adversely affect the heart muscle, provoking the emergence of insomnia, feelings of causeless anxiety and increased nervousness.
In small doses, spirits such as cognac, a stimulant effect on the nervous system. This happens due to the sharp expansion of blood vessels, thereby increasing blood pressure and the person feels a surge of strength.
It is through this two teaspoons of brandy result in feelings of people with low blood pressure. But hypertensive spirits as invigorating means better not to use, because scientific studies have shown that in 20% of cases of essential hypertension was to blame alcohol.
Even minimal athletic exercises have an invigorating effect on the body. While driving improves blood circulation of the internal organs and the brain (it picks up oxygen and begins to deal with intelligent workloads better). After half an hour of exercise the body produces endorphins - substances that enhance the mood, drives away melancholy and depression.
In addition, the movement helps burn stress hormones - adrenaline and cortisol, which lead to premature aging of the organism. So to increase the energy potential of the organism is best due to sports loads, and no artificial stimulants such as energotonik or caffeinated beverages.
Herbal drugs that increase the adaptive capacity of the body is called adaptogens. The most famous are: Rhodiola rosea tincture, Siberian Ginseng, Echinacea, lemongrass, ginseng. By themselves, the plants from which made adaptogens are toxic, but in small doses may be useful for the organism. For example, 10 drops of lemongrass or Echinacea increases the body's defenses, to exacerbate the memory and vision, drive off in a bad mood and improve overall body tone. However, the beneficial effects of these drugs does not occur immediately, but only 3-4 days after the beginning of reception.
