Are Q10 supplements good for energy levels?

Q10 supplements

I started taking Q10 supplements around five years ago because I needed to be in a healthier place as my husband and I wanted to have children. I was at the end of my thirties.

After our son Cyrus was born, it hit home even more how important it was that I stay as healthy as I can be and feel as energetic as possible.

I started taking more supplements, but I found that I was getting a lot of headaches and stomach aches and was suffering from dizzy spells, which I put down to the particular supplements I was buying.

More energy as an older mum

After doing some more research on the internet about nutrition and supplements, my husband and I came across Pharma Nord. It is a reputable and well-established brand which has been around a long time. So we started buying their Q10 Gold and taking 200mg a day.

I feel much better in myself. I feel like I have got a lot more energy, which is particularly important when you have a four-year-old son.

Just recently, I was able to run along the whole length of the beach with Cyrus for the first time in ages and not feel tired. I’ve never been a runner but I feel it’s given me the confidence to try running more.

Health benefits of taking supplements

I take the Q10 along with other Pharma Nord products including Bio-Vitamin D3 and Bio-Magnesium. Overall, I find that I am able to focus on things better than I did before. I get more done and I feel a lot calmer as well. This was particularly important during the Coronavirus lockdown because looking after a young child, working from home and navigating your way through a pandemic isn’t easy to do.

I talk to everyone about Pharma Nord products because we’ve found they really work for us.

We are going to continue taking the supplements because we are not getting any younger. We’ve got a young son and anything which can keep our energy levels up and keep us healthy is worth its weight in gold.

    This was really interesting! I am very interested in supplements, but don’t currently take any. It’s so hard to know what you should take, or which ones could cause adverse effects like the ones you described! Glad you found the right mix for you.

    I know about supplements because my mum used to take them when I was younger. These days she just goes fresh and natural instead

    Thanks for this post! The way I see it is that supplements can’t hurt, right?

    This is a great topic to discuss. I feel like many of us overlook the benefits of supplements until we get older. However, it would be a great idea to start them BEFORE you start feeling tired and worn out. Right? I worked with my doctor to have a blood test done, letting me know which vitamins I should be taking. This was based on my own personal levels so that I wasn’t spending money on something that I didn’t need. The result was impressive! I felt such a big difference.

    I think it’s important to get regular check ups and blood work to find deficiencies. I started taking vitamin D years ago and it made a HUGE difference in my energy!
