Energy & Fatigue
Ubiquinol is essential for Energy
Your body needs Ubiquinol to generate energy. It acts within your cells to help naturally increase energy levels.
How does it work?
Ubiquinol plays a role in transferring electrons to generate cellular energy, known as ATP. Its electron transfer ability also makes it a very good antioxidant – a feature that Ubiquinone (CoQ10) does not have.
Ubiquinol’s antioxidant ability is considered by doctors and researchers to be one of the most important functions in the body’s cellular energy production process.
Feeling tired or fatigued? You may be suffering from low levels of Ubiquinol in your body.
Ubiquinol is the “spark plug” that helps fire energy production in your cells.
As we age, or when we are under prolonged stress due to lifestyle, diet or environmental factors, our natural CoQ10 and Ubiquinol levels become depleted and the ability to produce Ubiquinol declines.1 In addition to this, the free radical activity and oxidative stress that occurs in our body from normal metabolism, even in healthy individuals, increases as we get older.2
One of the main roles of antioxidants in the body is to help combat free radical activity and oxidative stress. As such, antioxidants like Ubiquinol may help to minimise the impairment of normal functioning cells and restore essential levels of Ubiquinol back into your system.
When your energy production is low, it affects your natural energy levels in your organs such as your heart and liver, which means they are unable to function optimally. This may be the reason why you are feeling sluggish and generally tired.
How can Ubiquinol help?
In order to receive the minimum required amount of Ubiquinol each day (100 – 150mg), one would need to eat 3.4kg of red meat, 5.7kg of chicken or 50 cups of spinach.
Taking Ubiquinol supplements, the active and readily bioavailable form of CoQ10, may be an efficient way to help restore healthy levels of Ubiquinol in the body and support optimal energy levels.
Ubiquinol is available in a supplement form [Link to buyers guide] at health food stores, pharmacies and online vitamin stores, nationally.
