Research indicates that as we age, our natural Ubiquinol levels decline and our ability for our body to restore these levels declines too.
Ubiquinol is the “spark plug” that helps fire energy production in your cells.
When we age, or when we are under prolonged stress due to lifestyle, diet or environmental factors, our natural Ubiquinol levels may become depleted and the ability to produce Ubiquinol declines. 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.
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 thereby help to support healthy ageing by restoring 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 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.
Scientific studies have indicated that Ubiquinol in an active and readily bioavailable form may be an efficient way to help restore healthy levels of Ubiquinol and support optimal energy levels.
