Anti-fatigue Properties Assessment

Anti-fatigue Properties Assessment

Certain functional foods or bioactive ingredients with anti-fatigue properties help reduce fatigue and increase overall energy levels. Aprofood has a well-established scientific and technical system, along with a team of experts, to support the evaluation of your product's effectiveness in anti-fatigue.

Mechanisms of Action for Anti-fatigue

The mechanisms of action of anti-fatigue interventions involve complex interactions at the molecular, cellular, and systemic levels, which vary depending on the specific ingredient; some of the mechanisms are as follows.

Enhanced Energy Production

Facilitating cellular energy production by aiding in metabolic processes, such as ATP synthesis in mitochondria, to support mitochondrial function and potentially reduce fatigue.

Stress Response Modulation

For example, adaptogens, including ginseng, rhodiola, and ashwagandha can help regulate the body's stress response, reducing the impact of chronic stress on fatigue.

Neurotransmitter Modulation

Influencing neurotransmitter levels, improving alertness and reducing perceived fatigue. For example, caffeine can reduce perceived fatigue by blocking adenosine receptors in the brain. This leads to increased release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Polyphenols and omega-3 fatty acids can potentially alleviate fatigue by reducing inflammation, which is associated with various fatigue-related conditions.

Muscle Recovery

Amino acids, such as branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and glutamine, can aid in muscle repair and reduce muscle-related fatigue after exercise.
