I’ve talked a bit about energy and the B vitamins needed to raise your levels if you’re feeling tired, sluggish or drained.
But what other vitamins and nutrients should we think about?
Let’s delve in and have a look at another nutrient* that can be beneficial if you’re feeling like your energy levels are low.
(* Remember – there could be other things going on for you so please always seek help from a qualified practitioner if you have any concerns) 😊.
What is it?
A compound found naturally in the body it helps other nutrients to perform many functions. As it’s name would suggest, it is a great team player (co enzyme) helping in lots of different functions:
✔️Helps to lower blood pressure
✔️Helps Vitamin E to recycle so aids detox of your free radicals!
✔️Helps cells to turn the glucose into energy
✔️Plays a central role in metabolism
Signs you could be deficient:
Lack of energy
Poor exercise tolerance
Poor immune function
Signs of ageing
Ways you can help CoQ10 be absorbed are by taking it with iron rich foods and B vitamins.
What to avoid : stimulants and sugar as these impede absorption. And the best way to make sure you're getting enough of this useful little enzyme? Eat these:
Sardines, mackerel, spinach, sesame seeds, walnuts and soya oil
