It is a term representing the intermediate state between illness and healthy, there may be no diagnosable illness but there are a range of uncomfortable health symptoms. Put it simply, you are sure that your health condition is no longer as healthy as before, but your health report shows that you are at a healthy state. According to the latest statistic, there are only as little as 5% of the world population are considered healthy. Excluded people who have diagnosed with diseases, the remaining 75% of the world population are at the status of suboptimal health!

Slept for 8 hours a day but still tired. Coffee is a must at work or else you will feel sleepy the entire day.
