At the start of 2020, a new coronavirus invaded the world leading to the death of more than six million people worldwide and while vaccines and oral medicines against Covid-19 are available, people are still susceptible to contracting the virus.

Clinical deficiencies of nutrients may be among the factors that could increase susceptibility to infections.

According to a survey by Rakuten Insights on dietary supplements in the Philippines, as of July 2020, 85 percent of people aged 55 and above tend to take nutritional supplements daily, while people aged 16 to 24 years old tend to be the most sparing in terms of taking supplements at 61 percent.

As people look for the best supplements that can help them look after their health, CoQ10 is one that emerges unique.

CoQ10 is a compound made by your body and stored in the mitochondria of your cells. Research has shown that CoQ10 plays several key roles in your body – provides energy to the cells, helps improve heart health and reduce the oxidative damage caused by daily stress and pollution.

Vivaro offers BIA, a CoQ10 supplement, to help meet your daily antioxidant requirement. Vivaro’s products were conceived of and launched during the height of the pandemic; but the journey started in 2010 when some of the founders of Vivaro learned about CoQ10 in Gerson Institute in Mexico, when they went for cancer treatment.

A group of experienced entrepreneurs, executives from pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare organizations, research scientists, technical and marketing technology professionals formed Vivaro with a vision of providing accessible, affordable nutritional products to help elevate Filipinos’ health, and therefore, their quality of life.

“Every Filipino spent an average of P8,216.42 on healthcare goods and services in 2020, around the height of the pandemic. This is a 5 percent increase in spending habits compared to just a year prior,” said John Echauz, chairperson of Vivaro. “Our country’s success depends on health, which is a basic human need. As a result, we strive to provide as many Filipinos as possible with world-class vitamins, minerals and health supplements.”

The founders of Vivaro are believers in a holistic approach to wellness in life: which means a combination of a healthy lifestyle — balanced diet, exercise, sufficient rest and rejuvenation, combined with the addition of the right supplements to help keep our body functioning optimally.

Antioxidants have become scientifically interesting compounds due to their many benefits such as anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. Antioxidants are found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables.

Your body naturally absorbs and produces essential substances, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

These keep your body healthy and functioning correctly. But it is not always possible to get all the essential nutrients we need just through our regular food intake.

Making CoQ10 supplementation a part of your daily routine can benefit adults of all ages, especially those receiving treatment for health issues or who have depleted energy levels due to medical conditions. CoQ10 supplementation is clinically proven to help manage cardiovascular problems and help improve heart health.
