Still, life is not always that simple, and even if we stick with the official guidelines for healthy living, it can often be challenging to get adequate amounts of the essential nutrients.

In fact, the use of such products can be compared with plant fertilizers that make plants look healthy, flourish and thrive.
‘As a mother of five children, you can really do with some extra energy,’ Thea Sanger laughs. That was the reason why she started using capsules with co-enzyme Q10. ‘I just wanted to try it and I found that it really helps.’

That’s much better now. And another great change is that my gums don’t bleed anymore!’

That’s why I bought a box of capsules,” she recalls.
