That feeling you get when you reach the top of the mountain, raft your favorite river, catch that perfect wave, keep up with the kids all day, [insert your own accomplishment, here], and still have the energy to get your evening workout in. There’s nothing that can beat it! It’s that feeling that tells us we are truly living, we are embracing this gift we call life and we are conquering the day.
Summer, the season of adventure is just a few days away. The days are warm and long and there are endless adventures to be had. While it’s exhilarating, it can also be demanding and a bit exhausting. You will be asking a lot out of your body, and that’s ok, it simply means that you have to put in what you take out and fuel your day.
Energy, it’s a hot commodity and constantly in high demand. When it comes down to it, we are at the mercy of our bodies to keep us going. And, everything we put in our body impacts the energy we get out of it.
Here’s how it works on a cellular level…
It starts with mitochondria, the structures in every cell that are responsible for producing energy. In a nutshell, mitochondria are the cell’s powerhouses. There are three primary pathways that cells use to produce energy, all of which rely on the breakdown of components in food, such as protein, carbohydrates, and fat. The mitochondria generate a substance, an “energy molecule” called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). All cells in the body require ATP in order to function. It is imperative that the mitochondria function properly in order to produce the necessary amount of ATP required by the body.
The mitochondria require something called CoQ10 in order to produce enough ATP to meet the energy requirements of the body. Our bodies actually produce CoQ10, but not enough for optimal energy which requires us to take in CoQ10 as well. CoQ10 is required for 95 percent of our cellular energy production. So, even though our bodies produce it, we still need to make it a priority to consume it as well. As a matter of fact, research has demonstrated that the natural production of this important compound slowly declines around the age of 30.
This is where something called Ubiquinol comes in. Ubiquinol is the reduced and bioactive form of CoQ10. What does this mean? It means that Ubiquinol is the preferred form of CoQ10 for consumption as the body can most easily recognize and utilize it.
This is where we get true, sustainable, lasting energy for our day and the adventures and challenges that it brings.
The truth is, courtesy of what we call the Standard American Lifestyle, many of us simply do not have the cellular energy that we need to conquer the day, or even get through the day. Going back to the three primary pathways that cells use to produce energy, they all rely on the breakdown of the foods and nutrients we consume.
So, what does this typical lifestyle look like today? Well, most of us know the answer to this and it includes stimulants like caffeine in one form or another, a variety of processed foods, convenience foods, and fast food. Now, that’s on one end of the spectrum. There’s also another end of the spectrum that includes a diet focused on whole foods that are in or very close to their natural state. And, of course, those who fall on the whole foods end of the spectrum are going to naturally have more energy.
So, that begs the questions, how can we live a life that maximizes our cellular energy without artificial stimulants? How do we get the boost we need without leaning on caffeine? How do we live a life that allows us to conquer every single day?
It starts with minimizing the fake foods and gravitating toward a whole foods-based diet. Go ahead and focus on eating a diet rich in whole foods, foods that haven’t been processed or have been minimally processed (legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, veggies, meat, and so on…). The human body runs at its best on food very close to, or in, its natural state.
It includes moving every day. Your amazing body is meant to move and sweat. Of course, that goes hand in hand with hydrating so shoot for at least half of your body weight in ounces per day, our bodies depend on quality hydration. (So if you weigh 150 lbs, then shoot for 75 ounces of water per day.) .
And, it involves boosting your nutrient and CoQ10 intake. Rather than relying on a morning or afternoon pick-me-up feed your body’s energy source. You can turn to a third-party tested and verified supplement like Energize by New Earth. Featuring Ubiquinol, a bioavailable form of CoQ10, Energize is tremendously powerful at providing cellular energy and promoting a healthy heart and a strong cardiovascular system. And, like all of New Earth’s products, the power of Energize lies in its formula.
