Introducing during Vitafoods 2017 Gumtastic Power: Energy gummies developed by Softigel by Procaps

Who hasn´t needed a wake-me-up in the morning or hasn´t dragged a tired body to the end of the day?  Regardless how we individually spend our day, the intensity of our routine, the sports practice or the stressful of our labor; the common consequence is the high demand and lack of energy.
Energy is a cellular function mediate by vitamins and minerals we consume along the day; low energy levels typically indicate a cellular imbalance.  When cells receive the energy they needed, the body feels enough strong, energized and gives you a sense of wellbeing.    Having enough energy also depends on the person’s lifestyle: exercise, work, sleep time, in a combination with the appropriate amount of nutrients and calories intake.
One of the ways to improve our energy is ensuring that we are taking the necessary nutrients according to our demand.  For some, high-intensity exercise like training for a marathon, or for others it may represent a long period of hard work.  Now, taking a gummy energy supplement with B-Complex, D-ribose and CoQ10 is an excellent way to increase the levels of nutrients to keep you energized and in motion.
But, why D-ribose, B-complex and CoQ10?
D-ribose is a sugar that is usually produce by the body, it is in charge of regulating the natural process of energy synthesis. It helps to reduce the loss of energy during stress periods and accelerates the energy and tissue recovery, helping muscles regenerate the lost energy and potentially helps minimize any physiological consequences of this energy depletion situation caused by high intensity exercise for instance.  Ribose is safe, clinically proven to be effective, doesn´t increase the blood sugar levels, and is protected by a family of patents* covering all known uses of ribose in nutrition: Increased energy associated with athletic activity, strenuous exercise or labor; prevents fatigue to a significant degree, increased energy demand that exists during strenuous labor, advanced age; among others.
On the other hand, the very well-known antioxidant coenzyme Q10 plays a vital role in the mitochondrial production of ATP, which transports energy within cells. Although CoQ10 is produced naturally in the body, production decreases with age and in the presence of specific diseases.  Taking the appropriate amount of CoQ10 reduces the fatigue during the physical activity, and at the same time acts as an antioxidant cleaning up the body of free radicals.
Converting food into cellular energy takes a lot of steps—literally hundreds of chemical reactions, and B-complex vitamins act as helpers in many of those reactions. B-Complex Vitamins by their selves do not make you feel more awake or more energized, B Complex vitamins make it possible for our body to use energy.  Now, in combination with the appropriate calorie source as D-Ribose, B complex is an excellent combination.
