Life in the 21st century is busy, busy, busy. As we age it is harder
to keep up with the pace, and fatigue is increasingly common.
There are many reasons why energy levels may decrease and
fatigue can just be the tip of the iceberg. Co-enzyme Q10 is a
nutrient that is often recommended to increase energy levels,
and as you will learn, this nutrient does more than just address
the tip of the iceberg!
Energy to Burn
Co-enzyme Q10, also referred to as CoQ10 or ubidecarenone,
is a fat soluble, vitamin-like substance which occurs naturally in
every cell of the body. CoQ10 plays a vital role in helping the
‘power houses’ of cells, the mitochondria, to produce energy.
Supporting mitochondrial function means the billions of cells
in your body become very efficient at producing energy and
you can feel the benefits with increased vitality and a regained
zest for life.
An Essential Antioxidant
CoQ10 is also an antioxidant and protects your cells from
damage by free radicals. Free radical damage is a natural
process of ageing and CoQ10 can slow this process. CoQ10
is sometimes referred to as an anti-ageing nutrient and is a
popular addition to cosmetic products for this reason. The
anti-ageing properties of CoQ10 can be attributed to its
potent antioxidant action.
CoQ10 – Your Heart’s Best Friend
CoQ10 levels are highest in the hardest-working tissues of the
body, especially the heart. The cells of the heart are extremely
active and require a high energy supply to keep your ‘ticker’
ticking. CoQ10 supports this important energy production. As
an antioxidant, CoQ10 protects the heart muscle from free
radical damage and also prevents LDL cholesterol (the bad
cholesterol) from being oxidised and causing plaque build-up
in the arteries.
Maintaining healthy CoQ10 levels
is fundamental for keeping your cardiovascular
CoQ10 Supply Declines with Age
Just when the wrinkles start to show and we enter the age
group of increased risk for cardiovascular disease, our CoQ10
levels and energy often start to decline. Certain drugs, such as
those used to lower cholesterol, can also reduce your body’s
stores of CoQ10. It is not possible to get large amounts of
CoQ10 from diet alone. Therefore, taking a daily CoQ10
supplement, especially as we age, can help to increase your
energy levels, keep your cardiovascular system healthy and
strengthen the body’s antioxidant defence network.
Quality is the Key
There is a wide range of CoQ10 supplements available,
but unfortunately some are not as effective as others.
A CoQ10 supplement should be derived from a natural
source, and needs to be in an appropriate oil base for optimal
absorption. After all, there’s no point spending your money
on a supplement that your body can’t use. CoQ10 delivered
in the patented EnsorbTM base has 900% better absorption
than powdered CoQ10 supplements, meaning that your
body is better able to use this type of supplement and you will
experience stronger and faster results.
Fatigue is a common problem and if you suffer with fatigue,
you probably feel you don’t have the energy to do anything
about it! With our advice, boosting your energy doesn’t need
to be a struggle and CoQ10 may be the perfect supplement
