Clinical diagnosis of overtraining using blood tests: A placebo controlled investigation of the effects of tryptophan or placebo on subjective and neurotransmittegs measures of fatigue.

At least five different serotonin receptors were identified in the cellular membranes, each of them with a sole molecular structure, pharmacological action, and anatomic distribution into the central nervous system.

A quite intensive training period during a training program seems to reduce the adrenocorticotropic ACTH and the growth hormone 57 concentrations.

Brain neurotransmitters in fatigue and overtraining.

Different cerebral structures are involved in different defense strategies, depending on the level of the threats perceived by the individual. Brain monoamines, exercise, and behavioral stress: In resistance sports, the overtraining syndrome is characterized by a persistent fatigue and apathy. Biochemical and immunological markers of overtraining. When the danger signs neurotransmtiters clear but still are far away, brainn tense immobility reaction is quite common, whose neural substrate is probably the ventral portion of the periaqueductal gray matter PGM of the mesencephalon 13, It is defined as a neuroendocrine disorder hypothalamohypophysial that results from an imbalance between the demand of the exercise and the functional capability, and it may be aggravated by an inadequate recovery, thus causing a decrease in the sportive and athletic performance, the incidence of bruises, neuroendocrine changes, alterations in the mood, constant fatigue, among fstigue symptoms 8.


Several of these neurotransmitters are synthesized through precursors delivered by the food, and they are directly influenced by the diet. Revista Brasileira de Medicina do Esporte ; The mechanism of the OTS could be difficult to examine in detail, perhaps because the stress caused by excessive training load, in combination with other stressors, might trigger different “defence mechanisms” such as the immunological, neuroendocrine, and other physiological systems that all interact and probably therefore cannot be pinpointed as braain “sole” cause of the OTS.

Eur J Appl Physiol ; Med Sci Sports Exer ; FATIGUE Fatigue can be defined neurotransmitterz the set of manifestations produced by the work or prolonged exercises, which has as consequence a decreasing functional capability in keeping or continuing the expected outcome J Neural Transm ; But the study needs to be deepened together with nutritional aspects related to the tryptophan and the aminoacid levels of the ramified chain that can be involved in the central fatigue.

Brain neurotransmitters in fatigue and overtraining.

Decreased nocturnal catecholamine excretion: Possible mechanisms of central nervous jeurotransmitters fatigue during exercise.

Effects of conditioned running on plasma, liver and brain tryptophan and on brain 5-hydroxytryptamine metabolism of the rat. The specific energetic path responsible by the muscular fatigue depends on the endurance and intensity of the event.

Drix A, et al. Fatigue is therefore probably an integrated phenomenon, with complex interaction among central and peripheral factors. Since up to this moment there are no physiological or biological markers that allow an early diagnosis of the neurotrahsmitters 12the use of instruments that allow to find overtaining to the mood 12 have demonstrated effectiveness in detecting the initial signs of the overtraining syndrome, preventing its complete development, and avoiding the inactivity period 58, Overview of adrenergic anorectic agents.


Ribeiro L, Kapczinsk F. The signs of danger would stimulate the defense system through the tonsils, and at the same time, they would activate the serotoninergic neurons of the dorsal nucleus of the Raphe, that will innervate both the ovdrtraining and the PGM through different nervous ways.

Int J Spot Med ; The focus given to the health services in controlling the sedentarism through the regular practice of exercises 1 and the changing in the aesthetic standards have lead individuals to search for a reduction in their body mass, to increase the muscle mass through physical exercises in addition to the traditional aerobic fitness. It is a prolonged response to the stress that precedes the exhaustion, and attacks younger athletes in anaerobic sports involving speed, strength and power.

Int J Sports Med ;13 Suppl 1: In the first phase, the body recognizes and reacts to the stressing factor s. Those training induced alterations in the metabolism of the nutrients have been proposed as one of the factors that contribute to the overtraining syndrome.

Rossi L, Tirapegui J. Acute tryptophan depletion in bulimia: Responses of plasma glutamine, free tryptophan and branched-chain acids to prolong exercise after a regime designed to reduce muscle glycogen.
