Fatigue and Stress Supplement Stacks Guide
The fatigue and stress supplement stack consists of supplements that are promising in preventing what is known as brain and physical 'burnout.' This term means an excessive workload and low-grade stressors over a long period that has been accumulating in our bodies. This “burnout” causes an exhausted state comparable to fatigue and stress. It is very common other complications to occur, such as anxiety or depression.
Stack #1: For People with Acute Fatigue and Stress Symptoms
L-Tyrosine is the precursor to catecholamines (adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine) and having a pool of tyrosine in your body can prevent their depletion that occurs during stress. L-Tyrosine isn't really capable of spiking them to higher, but rather than regulating the normal levels, which is the goal when taking tyrosine.
Thus, 2 g of L-Tyrosine tends to be the lowest recommended dose for L-Tyrosine. Many studies used this amino acid in the 10-12 g range, taken in multiple doses throughout the 'stressful' period.
The dosage of 2-6 g L-ornithine has shown anti-fatigue effects in cases where there is an excessive level of ammonia in the blood. Ammonia is inherently pro-fatigue, and it is known to be spiked in prolonged exercise and it is suspected that long work hours may predispose persons to higher than average circulating ammonia concentrations.
L-Ornithine is unlikely to have any benefit in persons who do not have elevated ammonia concentrations.
Rhodiola rosea is one of the most well researched Adaptogen compounds, and appears to be particularly effective against prolonged stress and fatigue. It has been implicated in both preventative and rehabilitative uses, and has a relatively large body of human evidence to support its effects.
The 288-680 mg range is what is used in human studies, and assumes an extract that is standardized for 3% rosavins and 1% salidroside. The higher dose is recommend for one time usage, and the lower dose is recommended for daily usage.
