Or the "marathoner's wall"
What if it was simply a lack of these 3 neurotransmitters:
- dopamine, role of starter
- noradrenaline, accelerator of the action
- adrenaline, persistence of the action
What if, it is actually a lack of Tyrosine! An Amino Acid that plays a key role as the precursor of these 3 culprits;)
But where did this Tyrosine go?...
👉 In fact, it's all about sugar storage getting depleted during the race! The body will try to manufacture sugar at any cost, even using sources other than carbohydrates, such as Tyrosine.
👉 Why only carbohydrates ?
Because the brain only relies on glucose. Therefore, Tyrosine suddenly diminishes in the bloodstream and ... there will no longer be enough of it to manufacture the 3 neurotransmitters mentioned.
✋In order to avoid this phenomenon it is advisable to take regularly during the effort of carbohydrates in the form of drinks or energy bars.
👀 where is Tyrosine found?
