Need more energy? Who doesn't! People who are ill need more energy. They just do not have enough energy to do the normal things in life. People needing more energy may have some of these illnesses
Every cell in our body has a job to do. They have to make energy to keep the body going. There are little furnaces within the cells called 'mitochondria'. The mitochondria need fuel to make energy. Without enough energy our body slows and starts to break down.
Co enzyme Q 10 (CoQ10) and D-ribose are the two ingredients that are essential for the mitochondria to make energy. If your supply of these is low, you will have low energy.
CoQ10 is needed in greater quantities in the heart. If you take statin drugs to reduce cholesterol, then you definitely need to supplement with CoQ10 as these drain CoQ10 from the cells.
Dose: 200-400mg CoQ10 daily.
D-ribose comes in the form of a white powder. It is only in recent years that scientists found how to make it. It is very safe to take.
Dose: 1 tsp powder 1-3 times daily
If you have CFS/ME and are very fatigued, take 3 doses daily for a 2-4 weeks. Cut back as you see fit.
These 2 natural supplements taken long term will give your mitochondria the fuel they need to make the energy your body needs.
