Whether you are a busy mother with children, a power executive, a student with a heavy course load or business person or just simply one of the millions of  Indians who complain that they are tired of being tired, everyone experiences of fatigue at one time or another. And constant fatigue gets in the way of peak physical performance, no matter what you do!

What Causes It?
Fatigue is a normal response to prolonged physical and emotional stress. But if it occurs all of the time, it may be a sign of a more serious psychological or physical challenge that should be evaluated.

Optimal Life Foods For Fatigue

Carbohydrates. Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy products all supply needed carbohydrates, the
fuel your body prefers to run on.

Protein. Foods rich in protein like fish, lean meats, beans, and dairy products help keep blood glucose stable, and not rising and falling like a roller coaster.

Apples. Polyphenols found in apples improved physical performance and combated fatigue in one study.

Garlic. Animal and human studies have shown that garlic promotes endurance during exercise and has an antifatigue effect.
