Women who wish to have a child need to ensure that they will be getting a constant and adequate supply of certain vitally important micro-nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies may cause a diminution in fertility. Ubiquinol has just as important a role to play as folic acid, iron and vitamin D. The first few weeks of pregnancy are particularly demanding on the body because metabolism and certain bodily functions change. Ubiquinol helps to provide the extra energy required for these changes and for overcoming the fatigue that pregnancy can induce.
Health of the skin, the hair and the nails
As women grow older, and particularly with the arrival of the menopause, a lack of micro-nutrients such as Ubiquinol can be expected. This frequently manifests itself in lifeless hair, broken fingernails and problems with the skin, particularly dryness. Ubiquinol, taken either orally or applied externally using creams, can help in preserving the skin in a healthy state. When taken as a food supplement, it favours the retention of water in the various layers of the skin. And when applied externally, it stimulates skin regeneration and helps in fighting against the appearance of psoriasis.
The pill - the cause of a lack of essential elements?
The contraceptive pill has proved its efficacy over the years, but one of its less well-known side effects is that it tends to increase the need for certain micro-nutrients. And because the pill tends to be taken generally over fairly long time periods, the need to ensure a healthy diet is all the more important. Hence the recommendation to supplement the diet with Ubiquinol.
