BRAIN NEUROTRANSMITTERS IN FATIGUE AND OVERTRAINING PDF

This can alter synthesis of central neurotransmitters involved in fatigue. While this association seems plausible, it has not been substantiated in the literature. Swimmers who consume inadequate carbohydrates have more fatigue during training but do not necessarily suffer a performance decrement needed to diagnose OTS. With exercise, there is increased unbound tryptophan, which competes with branched chain amino acids for entry into the brain. Mood changes and fatigue are subjective, difficult to measure, and influenced by many confounding factors.

For example one of your clients has severely overtrained, what would be steps he could take to get his body and mind back? Thanks for all your work and your helpful advice on here. First because you have essentially two types of overtraining, one caused by excess intensity one by excess volume. Both will lead to a decrease in performance and both will make you feel like crap but they will affect different systems.

So in that sense, yeah, neurotransmitters are normally the number one issue. But receptor desensitization is not the only possible problem. You can also have the depletion of one or several of the excitory neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline. So the cause could be: Dopamine depletion Noradrenaline depletion leading to lowered adrenaline since noradrenaline is the precursor to adrenaline Adrenaline depletion more rare Adrenergic receptors desensitization Dopaminergic receptors desensitization NOTE:overtraining via too much volume most often found in endurance athlete is more associated with depleted serotonin.

Kinda hard to know which one is affecting you. How can you tell which is affected? There are some tests you can do. Take g of tyrosine on an empty stomach in the morning, wait minutes and assess whether you feel better or not. If you have a big improvement on mood then it is a depletion issue because providing the body with the raw material to fabricated dopamine then noradrenaline and adrenaline fixed the issue which means that your receptors are responsive.

It could be that your body is inefficient at converting tyrosine into dopamine this is very often low levels of vitamin B6. You can try taking mucuna pruriens on an empty stomach.

It contains L-Dopa which is the direct precursor to dopamine. If neither tyrosine or mucuna made a difference then we are likely looking at a dopamine receptor desensitization issue. Which is actually quite common in our modern society of instant gratification. Keep in mind that blue light tablets, smart phones, flat screen TVs are extremely strong stimulants of the dopaminergic receptors. If you abuse them you can desensitize your receptors over time by overstimulating them.

The best way to improve dopamine sensitivity is to dramatically decrease the use the the devices mentionned earlier. It can go as far as not using a table, smart phone or TV for weeks. It could be another issue too. It can be adrenergic receptor desensitization or noradrenaline depletion.

How can you know which one? If your noradrenaline is depleted you will have big problems concentrating and focusing, more frequent headaches, a tendency toward low blood sugar episodes. Noradrenaline depletion often occurs when your body chronically produces too much cortisol. Because cortisol increases the conversion of noradrenaline into adrenaline, which canquickly lead to low levels of noradrenaline.

BTW if noradrenaline levels are low, so will your adrenaline levels because you need the first to make the second. Problems concentrating is normally the big symptom to look at.

In which case lowering cortisol would be your best bet since it would decrease the conversion of noradrenaline into adrenaline, allowing you to gradually increase your stores back up. And the best way to solve that is to decrease adrenergic stimulation for a while. This means decreasing cortisol, phosphatidylserine, ashwaganda, glycine and magnesium glycinane or taurate will be your best tools.

And in reality the issue is even more complex than that. Because the problem could come from serotonin. Thank you for being such an educator for so long!

BRAIN NEUROTRANSMITTERS IN FATIGUE AND OVERTRAINING PDF

Published on the web 15 August As brain function appears to be dependent upon the interaction of a number of systems, it is unlikely that a single neurotransmitter system is responsible for central fatigue. Several other mechanisms are involved, with evidence supporting a role for the brain catecholamines. Fatigue is therefore probably an integrated phenomenon, with complex interaction among central and peripheral factors. When prolonged and excessive training happens, concurrent with other stressors and insufficient recovery, performance decrements can result in chronic maladaptations that can lead to the overtraining syndrome OTS.

As brain function appears to be dependent upon the interaction of a number of systems, it is unlikely that a single neurotransmitter system is responsible for central fatigue. Several other mechanisms are involved, with evidence supporting a role for the brain catecholamines. Fatigue is therefore probably an integrated phenomenon, with complex interaction among central and peripheral factors. When prolonged and excessive training happens, concurrent with other stressors and insufficient recovery, performance decrements can result in chronic maladaptations that can lead to the overtraining syndrome OTS. It might be that, as in other syndromes, the psychoneuroimmunology study of brain—behavior—immune interrelationships might shed a light on the possible mechanisms of the OTS, but until there is a definite diagnostic tool, it is of utmost importance to standardize measures that are now thought to provide a good inventory of the training status of the athlete. It is very important to emphasize the need to distinguish the OTS from overreaching and other potential causes of temporary underperformance such as anemia, acute infection, muscle damage, and insufficient carbohydrate intake.
