UNDERSTANDING TOLERANCE BUILD UP MAY BE KEY TO WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS
People who regularly take supplements or medication develop a phenomenon called "tolerance". Physical tolerance occurs when an organism builds up a resistance to the effects of a substance after repeated exposure. Decreased quantity of the substance reaching the site it affects. This is usually caused by an increase in induction of the enzymes required for degradation of the supplement. In other words, tolerance is a reduced response to repeated administration of the same dose or increase in the dose is required to produce the same magnitude of response. Once we begin to take supplement on a regular basis the dose response goes down - the same dose of medication produces less effect than it used to. Saying that the dose response to medication goes down is exactly the same as saying that medication tolerance goes up (and vice versa). Dose response and tolerance are mirror images of each other. As long as a steady use of medication is maintained, tolerance will tend to increase and dose response will tend to drop. In order to avoid this and get the expected result switching the products to those with different content or adding new ingredients is required.
