Fatigue can be a problem but for brain injury survivors it can be worse.
I was in a shop today, Home Bargains, and I saw a pack of maca powder.
If you know me, you know I go for natural foods for medication rather than that pharmaceutical rubbish.
Maca is apparently a great substitute for coffee. I have not tried it but will one day.
I say “I have not tried it” but I mean I haven’t had it on it’s own. I’ve had it in a combo with cacao powder before and that is nice too.
Anyway, according to the back of the pack of maca, it has thiamin (thiamine), vitamin B1 which can help with drowsiness/fatigue.
This got me thinking, does this mean brain injury survivors are actually deficient in vitamin B1?
It would’t surprise me.
As I have said before, I have turned my diet around to a more nutritional diet now and my fatigue has heightened, I think.
