Overcoming Jetlag – Can Ubiquinol Help?
The natural alternative to beating tiredness and fatigue when travelling.
Ubiquinol – the active form of CoQ10 – is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the body, and plays a key role in generating cellular energy, known as ATP. It’s responsible for that “spark” that helps to get us going in the morning and keep our bodies moving, and in reducing signs of fatigue.
However as we age, particularly past 30, and are placed under prolonged periods of stress, our body’s natural levels of Ubiquinol become depleted and our ability to produce Ubiquinol declines. In addition to this, the free radical activity and oxidative stress that occurs in our body from our normal metabolism, even in healthy individuals, increases as we get older. Low levels of Ubiquinol can generally result in feelings of fatigue, lethargy and a lack of energy – the exact feelings you experience when suffering from jetlag.
So is it possible that supplementing with Ubiquinol can help to overcome jetlag?
- The body and mind undergo significant stress during airline travel – exposure to radiation at high altitude, lack of adequate sleep, poor nourishment and more. In combination, these result in tiredness, irritability, drowsiness and muscle fatigue. Ubiquinol is one supplement that can help to mitigate these stresses and encourage healthy production of ATP in the body.
- Ubiquinol can assist with muscle recovery, stiffness and inflammation after a long-haul flight – just as it is used to lower the degree of inflammation after intense physical exertion and exercise.
- A daily dosage (between 100-150mg) of Ubiquinol daily may be an efficient way to help restore healthy levels of Ubiquinol in the body and support optimal energy levels. When travelling, it is recommended passengers supplement with Ubiquinol during take-off and landing to help enhance energy production and alleviate the onset of jetlag and travelling-induced fatigue.
