Study shows improved physical and mental fitness among nurses during the pandemic
In a study conducted by healthcare market research company Expansion Consulteam, unvaccinated French nurses experiencing intense stress and fatigue during the COVID-19 pandemic were given a daily dose of 100mg Kaneka Ubiquinol™. After 60 days of supplementation, almost two out of three declared themselves less stressed, and more than half said they felt less physically and mentally exhausted. These results correspond with previous studies on ubiquinol’s fatigue-busting effects.
This new study was carried out among 85 French nurses who, like all healthcare professionals, have endured an exceptional workload as a result of the pandemic. Half of the participants work in hospitals and the other half in private practice. Before the start of the trial, the majority of the nurses said they were suffering from stress, tiredness and mental exhaustion.
At the end of the study, the most cited and valued effects of ubiquinol supplementation were reduced stress and decreased physical fatigue, which were evident after 24 days on average. After taking 100mg Kaneka Ubiquinol™ daily for 60 days, 62% of the participants said they felt less stressed. Furthermore, 55% felt less physically fatigued since starting the ubiquinol treatment, and 56% felt less mentally fatigued. In addition, more than 7 out of 10 respondents reported improvements in their overall wellbeing.
Naturally present in the body, ubiquinol – the active form of coenzyme Q10 – is an essential micronutrient that helps cells produce energy. As it’s a true fuel for the body, a lack of ubiquinol results in a significant decrease in energy, resulting in fatigue and a lack of stamina.
Filip Van hulle, General Manager at Kaneka Nutrients Europe, explains: “We are delighted to see such positive study results, despite working conditions impacted by a galloping health crisis in France at the beginning of 2021. The feedback from the nurses shows that ubiquinol is a valuable weapon in the fight against daily stress and fatigue. Many consumers are currently looking to improve their overall health and ubiquinol could well be the solution: it supports several areas simultaneously, such as heart health, immunity and mental wellbeing, and contributes to improved energy and endurance.”
