Review: Motherhood Over 40 Easier With Q10 Supplements

DISCLAIMER: This supplement journey is my personal chronicle, and while it’s a collaborative post, the love for Pharma Nord products is all mine!

Being a new mum over 40, I initially embarked on a supplement journey to ramp up my health game before entering motherhood. Enter Q10 – my energy superhero.

Little C, my bundle of joy, turned my world upside down, emphasising the need for boundless energy. Yet, my first attempt with supplements wasn’t great. Headaches, stomach aches, dizzy spells. It was like my body was staging a revolt against my well-intentioned health pursuits.

More Energy Than A Toddler On A Sugar High

Cue the superhero entrance music for Pharma Nord’s Q10 Gold! Armed with 200mg a day, I felt a transformation. Suddenly, I had more energy than a toddler on a sugar high (a fitting comparison with my four-year-old tornado, Cyrus). Recently, I even did the unthinkable – ran along the beach without collapsing in exhaustion. Who knew Q10 could turn me into a beach-sprinting babe?

Enhanced Focus

To complete my supplement journey, I joined forces with BioVitamin D3 and Bio-Magnesium, also from Pharma Nord. Call it the powerhouse trio! Now, I’m a focused, efficient mum – an impressive feat, considering the chaos of lockdown parenting during a pandemic. Let’s talk benefits – enhanced focus, heightened productivity, and an overall zen vibe. And no, this isn’t a sponsored infomercial; it’s a genuine ode to the wonders of Pharma Nord products.

Rollercoaster Of Life

As I navigate newfound motherhood over 40, juggling a young child, remote work, and the rollercoaster of pandemic life, these supplements have become my secret weapon. I’m like a well-oiled machine, gracefully pirouetting through the challenges life throws at me.

So, why the supplement saga? Simple – we’re not getting any younger. With a young son and the never-ending demands of life, these little capsules are our elixir of youth, keeping us energised and healthy. Because, let’s face it, when you’re an older mum, every bit of energy is worth its weight in gold.

The Benefits of Q10 Supplements In A Nutshell

Energy boost: Q10 plays a crucial role in the production of energy within your cells. Taking supplements can help combat fatigue and enhance your overall energy levels.

Anti-aging Properties: Q10 supplements are known for their antioxidant properties, which can help nutralise free radicals and reduce signs of aging. Regular intake may contribute to maintaining a more youthful appearance.

Heart Health: Research suggests Q10 supplements may support cardiovascular health by assisting in the production of energy needed for proper heart function.

Mood Regulation: Some studies indicate a connection between Q10 levels and mood. While more research is needed, there’s a suggestion that Q10 might play a role in mood regulation.

    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!
