Why do we need supplements?

This was the question posed by Cardiologist Dr Ross Walker at Jeunesse Global’s L1FE CirQul8 product launch over lunch at Icebergs, Bondi.

“We were designed to live 30 or 40 years, wandering around the jungle with a spear. The peak of our lives was 30 and it was all downhill from there,” he said.

“By 40 you had your head ripped off by a saber-toothed tiger,  or you died from some infection. We were designed for a natural world, with a feast or famine mode, with acute stress, simplicity and a shorter lifespan. Life was pretty simple at the top of the food chain life. But our world has changed dramatically.”

Dr Walker explained that today, “we live in a world that is synthetic, creates obesity, increased exposure to radiation, complex chronic illness and a longer life”.

“Genetics load the gun, lifestyle pulls the trigger,” he said.

Dr Walker stressed the importance of taking the supplement Ubiquinol every day  for energy and cardiovascular health.

The active and bioavailable form of Coenzyme Q10, Ubiquinol, is vital for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the source of energy for use and storage at the cellular level, he said.  By promoting cellular energy, Ubiquinol supports heart and cardiovascular system function. A powerful antioxidant, Ubiquinol also supports healthy cholesterol levels and helps reduce the oxidisation of small dense low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, or ‘bad’  cholesterol particles in the blood.

Ubiquinol is one of the key ingredients in the  L1FE CirQul8 supplement  to support both mitochondrial energy and cell membrane health.

The supplement also contains annatto tocotrienols (vitamin E) for immunity and to fight inflammation, nicotinamide (vitamin B3) for energy and general wellbeing, pyridoxine (vitamin B6)  for a healthy nervous system, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) for healthy skin, bones and teeth and zinc  for mental clarity and focus.

Rachel McVinish, General Manager of Jeunesse Australasia said: “Last year, our team of scientists focused on the needs of our audience. In creating L1FE CirQul8, immunity and mitochondrial energy are front of mind.

“Our scientists at Jeunesse have looked deeply at what wellbeing freedom could look like in a product – how can we bring together powerful compounds that support immunity and mitochondrial energy in a formulation that is supported by cutting-edge research and over 70 scientific studies.

“Immunity is crucial to help protect us traverse this challenging season and support our optimal health, while mitochondrial energy is about the energy that is found in the cells of our body to help power our organs.”
