In theory, a varied well-balanced diet should provide all the daily nutrients necessary for good health but, in reality, this is often not the case. The fast paced world in which we live and work continues to take its toll. Food sourcing and farming methods affect the vital intake of minerals. Additionally the effects of pollution and an increasing reliance on convenience foods, can affect the daily intake of vital nutrients. Regular supplementation with vitamins and minerals can help to maintain essential nutrient levels within the body.
Good nutrition is obviously important if we are to maximise our energy levels. However, it is less well known that nutrients such as B vitamins and coenzyme Q10 are all vitally important to enable the body to release energy efficiently to help power our brain and nervous system throughout the day, helping our bodies to keep up with the stresses and strains that the day may bring.
Wassen have a number of products that have been specially formulated to help the body release energy from food including their Coenzyme Q10 + Vitamin E which helps those who normally have an active, sporty lifestyle stay energetic when fatigue and tiredness set in.
Wassen Coenzyme Q10 + Vitamin E is a natural vitamin-like substance that is essential for the release of energy for all the cells in the body. It combines Coenzyme Q10 with vitamin E and B2.
Coenzyme Q10 plays an essential role in the release of energy. Made naturally in the body, it’s in great demand for both physical and mental activity. Sadly, the body’s ability to manufacture Coenzyme Q10 declines with age.
Vitamin B2 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, helps with the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and plays a role in the normal functioning of the immune system. This important vitamin also contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cells and to the metabolism of iron. Vitamin B2 contributes to good vision, healthy skin, nails and hair. It is found naturally in milk, egg yolk, liver, yeast and yeast extract.
Vitamin E is needed for protecting cell membranes and unsaturated fats from oxidation and to help protect red blood cells. It is found naturally in vegetable oils, wheat germ, whole grain cereals, green vegetables, seeds and nuts. But for those who struggle to get enough Vitamin E from their diet, this supplement fills the gap.
To feel the full benefit of this supplement we recommend taking Wassen for 4 to 8 weeks, as it can take some time for the nutrients to work into the system. You can then continue to take the supplement every day to maintain energy levels and the reduction of fatigue. We saw some improvement in energy levels after taking the supplement once a day for 6 weeks and after 12 weeks there was a noticeable reduction in tiredness especially during the afternoon.
Wassen Coenzyme Q10 + Vitamin E costs £5.59 for 30 tablets and £13.75 for 90 tablets. Available from www.wassen.com, Boots and all good health food stores.
