5 Best Foods That Cure Chronic Fatigue

By    |   Friday, 28 Aug 2015 01:22 AM

Chronic fatigue syndrome leaves sufferers feeling so tired it interferes with their lives and at times makes it hard for them to function. These symptoms lead some sufferers to search for the best foods to help them cope.

In terms of diet, part of dealing with CFS involves what sufferers should avoid: processed, refined carbohydrates such as the white flour or sugar found in soda, as well as foods that include cookies, crackers, white bread, and cake, according to Everyday Health. CFS sufferers also can benefit by eating foods that provide important nutrients.

Here are five of the best foods for dealing with chronic fatigue.

SPECIAL: GMO Food: It's Worse Than We Thought . . .

Animal Proteins
CFS sufferers are encouraged to eat animal proteins such as eggs, meat, and fish, because they contain considerable amounts of the essential amino acids the body requires, according to Medindia, which cautioned CFS sufferers to only eat red meats occasionally. Nuts and beans also provide good quality proteins – but not as good as animal proteins.

Healthy Fats
Medindia adviced people with CFS to consume healthy fats — found in foods rich in omega-3 and omega-6 oils, such as fish, olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil — but to avoid unhealthy fats. “Fats help you improve poor immune function and hormonal imbalance, and also help in cognitive functioning,” the website said. “Moreover, fats are excellent source of energy,” Medindia said.

Flaxseed Oil
CFS sufferer Katie Manning wrote on the MindBodyGreen website that she has long taken flaxseed oil, and feels the difference when she doesn’t. Manning wrote: “All those omega-3s and -6s are fabulous for getting the blood flowing and easing creaky joints. You can also buy it in a bottle and use it in recipes; I put it on porridge, in smoothies, in soups — you name it. It’s a versatile creature.”

Fruits and Vegetables
All green vegetables benefit CFS sufferers, according to Medindia. “Researchers have found that CFS patients had elevated levels of methemoglobin (MetHb), a marker of oxidative stress, which shows that antioxidant treatment can help reduce free radical damage in them,” that website said. “A diet high in fruits and vegetables can increase plasma antioxidant capacity in people with CFS.”

Hemp Seed
According to MindBodyGreen: “Hemp seed contains all 21 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. It also boasts a perfect ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.”
