I've always used supplements, even as a young athlete
Fargo, ND (Vocus) October 16, 2009
Olympic gold medal figure skater Peggy Fleming, long-time advocate of dietary supplements and healthy living, has teamed up with Kaneka to travel the U.S. promoting heart health and their CoQ10 supplement called Kaneka QH™ Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the first stabilized, active and body-ready form of CoQ10, one of the natural health industry's most popular supplements for heart health.
Peggy Fleming has been using dietary supplements ever since her competitive skating days. So when she was introduced to Ubiquinol, it was a natural fit for her to join Kaneka's campaign in raising awareness of this unique heart health supplement. Recently, Lee Swanson, President of Swanson Health Products, visited Fleming at her California home to learn more about the Kaneka QH "Heart 365 Campaign" and her experience using Ubiquinol supplements.
"I've always used supplements, even as a young athlete," said Fleming. "My mother was very much into giving me the right vitamins. She even made protein shakes for me. I've been using Ubiquinol supplements for about 8 months now. When I first started taking it, I really did notice a little extra energy. I think that's important and helps us maintain our health."
Ubiquinol helps to spark 95% of the cellular energy in our bodies and to make all our systems work. "I think it's probably one of the most important supplements we can take as we get older because our bodies start changing," said Fleming.
However, the human body naturally produces less and less Ubiquinol over time. "I think it's important that we understand these things,'' Fleming said. ''We have to be constantly evaluating how our bodies are working and make sure that we discuss these things with our physicians."
What Is Ubiquinol?
Ubiquinol is the naturally occurring converted form of CoQ10, known as ubiquinone, found in the body. It is the substance that is necessary for cellular respiration, or energy production. Though CoQ10 is produced naturally within the body, this ability to produce CoQ10, as well as to convert it to ubiquinone, declines with age. Kaneka QH Ubiquinol is the first stabilized Ubiquinol supplement ever developed. Swanson Health Products has been a long-time partner with Kaneka.
