Ubiquinol and its effect on energy levels
Ubiquinol provides every cell in the body with energy so that it can function and is also a powerful antioxidant. As we age and are exposed to lifestyle stresses, our bodies’ natural levels of Ubiquinol decline as does our ability to convert CoQ10 to Ubiquinol. This may affect our energy levels.
To consume the recommended 100mg of Ubiquinol a day you’d have to eat: 3.5kg of beef, 120 cans of sardines or 60 avocados daily! Or you can simply try Kaneka Ubiquinol™, with 17 years of research behind it, it’s the only, quality Ubiquinol on the market naturally produced by yeast fermentation.
