3 Research-Backed Tips On Nutrition For Chronic Fatigue

In 2017, a detailed study was undertaken, which involved researching existing literature on chronic fatigue. The study highlighted there is very little research on the role of diet and nutrients in managing chronic fatigue. Some of the evidence pointed towards certain food items, which can improve chronic fatigue. And some research listed foods such as dairy products or gluten, which are harmful for some patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Listed below is a summary of the research findings on nutrition for chronic fatigue.

Probiotics Heal the Gut and Reduce Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue

There is enough evidence to prove a correlation between gut problems and fatigue. Hence taking probiotics can help relieve some of the gut-related symptoms and lower the overall fatigue levels in patients. Studies also revealed that regular intake of probiotics resulted in a significant decline in anxiety levels among patients of chronic fatigue.

Chocolates High In Cocoa Content Are Helpful for Chronic Fatigue

A study conducted in 2010 concluded that chocolates high in cocoa content can make patients with chronic fatigue feel better. Chocolate is rich in flavonoids and the effect of polyphenol in chocolate helped patients lower anxiety and depression related to chronic fatigue.

Balanced Diet Is the Key To Combat Chronic Fatigue

Most experts believe that the body needs a balanced diet and nutrition to manage the symptoms of chronic fatigue. The inclusion of foods like oats, whole grains, cereals, potatoes or rice with a low GI in diet can help in fighting against chronic fatigue. Similarly, fruits and vegetables, fish, beans, and yogurt work well to counter chronic fatigue. People with chronic fatigue are also advised to avoid food rich in sugar or oil as well as junk food. Sometimes, dietary supplements are recommended to counter the effect of chronic fatigue.
