As the end of the day approaches, many of us are familiar with that feeling of fatigue and exhaustion. Too commonly we reach for sugary foods, coffee and energy drinks to receive a quick boost of energy. Opting for sweets or artificial energy drinks will only providing a quick-fix and little long-term sustenance to keep you going through the day.

After over 10 years of research a scientific breakthrough has enabled Japanese scientists to discover a strong antioxidant, called Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is found naturally in our bodies and may be the secret to maintaining longer lasting energy.

Ubiquinol is seen to be one of the most powerful antioxidants and it is responsible for helping to sustain sufficient energy production in the cells of the body, particularly in our main organs including the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys.

If you are feeling run down and are in need of a natural energy booster, you may like to consider to the following tips!


  1. Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol is the active and reduced form of CoQ10 which is produced naturally in the body, providing vital antioxidant support and cellular energy, essential for the functioning of the cells and organs. Ubiquinol is a more bioavailable form of CoQ10, meaning as it enters your body it is delivered directly to where is needed, unlike CoQ10 where a conversion process is required. Ubiquinol is most commonly known for its ability to promote cellular energy, however as we age, stress or over exert ourselves our Ubiquinol levels decline. While we know it is important to maintain adequate levels of Ubiquinol in the body, the ability to consume a sufficient amount through foods would be difficult to meet. Your healthcare practitioner may recommend that you supplement to achieve the necessary amount.


  1. Eat a nutritious lunch

If you’re busy and you’re feeling tempted to skip lunch, you may want to reconsider your decision. Not allowing for a substantial and nutritious lunch will lead to feelings of lethargy and fatigue before the day is up. Include some protein such as eggs, beans, fish, chicken, and some leafy green vegetables: Spinach, kale, or broccoli. These vegetables assist in enhancing Vitamin C and Iron in the body, two minerals that are essential in the energy production process.


  1. Green tea

Drinking tea during the day is a good way to energise naturally, especially green tea, which is high in the antioxidant catechin. This type of antioxidant is a polyphenol found most abundant in the leaves of the tea plant – smaller amounts are found in foods such as red wine and chocolate. Green tea promotes improved memory, blood flow around the body and natural caffeine to deliver a gentle buzz. To make sure you get the most out of your dose, be sure not to boil the water and impair the beneficial antioxidants – this goes for all herbal teas. Also add a squeeze of lemon for better absorbency.


  1. Exercise

It may be the less desirable course to take, however, daily exercise strengthens the heart allowing it to pump more blood around the body, as well as releases chemicals called endorphins which promote that ‘feel good’ sensation. Opting to hit the gym, pavement or yoga studio in the morning is a good way to kick start the day by energising your body in the morning, taking you all the way to lunch!


  1. Sleep

Leading a healthy lifestyle does not stop at a balanced diet and regular exercise. Getting our seven to eight hours of consistent, quality sleep each night is vital to how we function. Unfortunately, many of us don’t receive our much-needed sleep per night, which leads to a deficit in sleep that is difficult to surplus. Sleep must be taken seriously; too much or too little promote health implications. Consider sleep a detox for your brain – sleeping, not just resting, restores and replenishes your body allowing for overall improved performance.
