Natural invigorating products for a more active life
To perform at work, keep up with daily concerns, enjoy spare time with the family, friends and partner… Our day-to-day life is very demanding, and we often need extra energy, to break free from stress, depression or low sexual desire and to feel capable of physically performing in situations that require our maximum vigour and intensity.
For this reason, correct nutrition is essential to improve performance and contribute to a rapid recovery. Natural supplements (invigorating or tonic substances, adaptogens) complement our diet and contribute to body’s balance. Natural invigorating substances help maintain the production and use of energy by delaying the onset of fatigue, they help optimise muscle strength and power, and preserve a correct metabolic flow when it comes to cognitive functions and sexual functioning.
Did you know?
It is estimated that erectile dysfunction (ED) affects more than 150 million men worldwide and impairs psychological well-being and personal relationships and hence the quality of life. The Massachusetts Male Aging Study indicated that the prevalence of ED was 52% in men aged 40-70 years old was strongly correlated with age.
Natural energisers for physical condition
The concept “physical condition” refers to an individual state characterised by the ability to vigorously perform on our daily activities and by the demonstration of characteristics and capabilities associated with a low early risk of suffering from diseases like hypertension, diabetes or obesity, among others.
There are different situations that can alter the physical and psychic condition, being the most important:
Fatigue significantly affects our life quality. It is the beginning of tiredness after starting an activity and can lead to exhaustion or difficulty in performing physical or mental tasks (decreased attention, concentration or drowsiness). There are other terms associated with fatigue: asthenia, lack of strength or inability to perform daily tasks–especially at the end of the day this can lead to weakness, or reduction or loss of muscle strength.
Stress is part of daily life and, although it is important for giving quick and accurate responses to events, if it is not balanced, it can affect physical and mental performance, immune potential and can even lead to disorders in body functions.
Sexual functioning is affected by stress, fatigue and tiredness, as well as obesity, cardiovascular disorders, smoking habits or environmental factors such as exposure to certain chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, heat or electromagnetic radiation, among others. All these situations can affect fertility, which depends on three major factors: erection difficulties, hormonal imbalance and oxidative damage.
Natural supplements rich in tonic substances, natural energisers, minerals and amino acids are particularly useful for invigorating and toning body and mind, fighting tiredness and fatigue, modulating stress and promoting metabolic and functional processes in our body.
Since the beginning of Greco-Roman, Arab, Chinese, Indian and Native American civilizations, the use of natural preparations has allowed the so-called Traditional Medicine to be “the sum total of the knowledge, skill, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to
different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness.” (OMS 2013, ISBN 978 92 4 350609 8).
These natural preparations were dependent on the so-called “temperaments”, the energetic state of an individual, so the invigorating or toning remedies were developed according to them. Their properties allowed the functions of the body to be normalised to obtain power, get encouraged and to reach harmony for daily activities.
Some of the natural remedies favouring performance are:
Panax ginseng or Korean ginseng contains natural antioxidant compounds: ginsenosides. Ginseng is one of the best-known herbal medicines used as a tonic agent in traditional Chinese Medicine to help increase resistance to fatigue and stress.
Royal Jelly is secreted by special glands of certain worker bees to feed young larvae and the adult queen bee. It is an essential food for the development and fertility of the queen bee, guaranteeing the continuity of the hive. It has got high energy and tonic value.
Paullinia cupana is native to the Amazon region. It is mainly valued for its stimulating properties.
Also called Siberian ginseng, Eleutherococcus senticosus is a resistant shrub native to the easternmost areas of the Russian steppes. Eleutherosides are its main active constituents and have got anti-fatigue and anti-stress effect.
Natural energisers tone body’s general state if complemented with:
Amino acids such as taurine, L-arginine and creatine: these are natural components of the human body (especially at the muscle and nervous system level) that promote tissue integrity and physical performance.
