How ubiquinol can give your summer a (natural) energy boost

It’s not just batteries that run down at this time of the year. Between gift buying, gatherings and getting out and about, summer holidays can be exhausting. Here’s how ubiquinol can help.

It might be the season of happy and jolly, but for many of us “zonked” is more how it rolls.

Forget endless summer days and luxurious lie-ins, many Aussies are now opting for shorter two week summer breaks rather than a more relaxed four.

Roy Morgan data reveals more than eight million Aussies in paid employment now have 174.9 million days of annual leave due.

And we’re compensating by organising jam-packed itineraries, which can lead to exhaustion.

So how can we power through a hectic summer?

First, be selective in which events you attend.

Sure, we all love a summer soiree, but 10 in a row is going to leave you exhausted.

Learn to prioritise and only say yes to events that matter.

Second, rethink your rituals.

Not everything has to happen over drinks in the evening.

How about a catch up swim at the beach? A barbeque in the park?

This way you can have your fun and keep your sleep bank in positive territory at the same time.

Number three, maintain those hard won healthy habits.

Yes, a balanced diet (lots of leafy greens, brightly coloured fruit and vegetables, wholegrains, nuts and seeds), H2O (and not too much caffeine and alcohol), regular exercise and time outdoors.

And our secret weapon?

Our fourth hack is borderline genius, and it comes with an unusual name, ubiquinol.

Naturally occurring in the body, ubiquinol is the active (more easily absorbed) form of Coenzyme Q10, and this powerful compound acts like a “spark plug” to support energy production.

Its other crucial role is to serve as an antioxidant and protect cells from oxidative damage.

Studies show supplementing with Co-Q10 is beneficial to people suffering from weariness and can help increase power during exercise while reducing fatigue.

Why we need a little extra as we get older

While a healthy 20-year-old can produce all the CoQ10 the body needs and converts it into ubiquinol to help produce cellular energy, as we get older our bodies become less efficient at doing this.

Even if you are producing enough CoQ10, or taking a conventional CoQ10 supplement, you may not be able to put it to good use if your body cannot convert it into what it really needs – ubiquinol.

With ubiquinol supplements, the conversion from CoQ10 has already been done, which means it can be readily absorbed by your body.
