Did you know that busy mums are competing with teenagers to be the biggest consumers of carbonated energy drinks? Who could blame them. Being a parent can be hard and quite often exhausting. The majority of mums admit to feeling fatigued and stressed on a daily basis. Although caffeine and energy drinks are effective pick-me-ups they can also be seriously damaging to the body. Side effects of their over-consumption include heart palpitations, hypertension, insomnia, anxiety, and headaches.Q10 is a vitamin like substance that is essential for the production of energy. It is found in every cell of the body but is more concentrated in hard working organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. Levels of Q10 are at their highest in our mid-twenties but as we grow older our bodies produce less and less. That’s why vitality generally decreases with age. Q10 is further depleted with stress, illness and certain medications (especially statins). Unlike stimulants that only provide a temporary boost and are usually followed by a crash, Q10 provides sustainable energy levels in a completely natural way.

Signs of a Q10 deficiency

* Muscle aches

Q10 Capsules or Creams?  

Q10 is not just an energy supplement. It is also a powerful antioxidant which is why it’s included in so many face creams.However the amount of Q10 in cosmetics is minimal and when applied topically it cannot reach the deeper layers of skin.Supplementing with Q10 can boost skin radiance by neutralising free radicals which contribute to wrinkles and collagen breakdown.

The Anti-ageing Antioxidant How Q10 can improve your complexion:

  1. It energises your skin. Young skin has ample amounts of Q10 and so has lots of energy to repair damage and keep skin cells healthy.
  2. It protects against photo ageing – premature aging due to excess sun exposure.
  3. It rejuvenates skin by stimulating skin cell activity. Active skin cells get rid of toxins easily and can make better use of nutrients. When your skin ages, all these processes slow down, causing dull, sagging and wrinkled skin.
  4. It stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the protein that decreases as we age,leading to wrinkles. Q10 boosts collagen production making skin look healthier and more radiant.
  5.  It is a potent antioxidant that acts against oxidative damage. This damage occurs as a result of UV rays, pollution, toxins and stress, leading to premature ageing that shows up on the skin. Q10 also plays a role in heart health, immunity and exercise performance.
This Sunday is the day to show mom (and aunties, grandmas and mother in laws) how much you adore them with the gift of health, youthfulness and energy.
