Brits plan to get more exercise, lead a more active social life and have more sex in 2008 according to a poll by Wassen Coenzyme Q10.

Asked about their New Year Resolutions, 44% said they wanted to up their exercise regime, 43% said they could try to improve their social life and 34% said they wanted more sex.

More sex please! That’s the message for 2008, with 45% admitting to putting off sex with their partner due to a lack of energy. 43% aim to improve their love lives, giving this year’s resolutions a steamy slant.

The poll revealed that a lack of energy was a key culprit for many failed resolutions, with 59% admitting they felt drained at least once a day, and 1 in 5 are tired absolutely all of the time. Other statistics include:

27% said they were deprived of sleep, while 60% said they struggled to get out of bed in the morning.

Getting more exercise topped the nation’s New Year Resolution list, with just 11% of those polled getting 30 minutes’ exercise a day. 37% said they exercised less than once a week

Improving social lives was another key resolution for 2008. 38% saying that they declined invites to social events because they felt too tired

22% said they were even too lethargic to call friends

Rita Stoffaneller from Wassen Coenzyme Q10 said: “Rather than opting for traditional resolutions such as giving up smoking or going on a diet, many Brits are planning to improve areas of their life that many of us take for granted.

“Getting enough sleep and exercise is vital to ensuring we function at our best, while making sure our diet is rich in essential vitamins and minerals is also important. Busy lifestyles mean we are more likely to be deficient in certain nutrients such as Coenzyme Q10 even though the supply of food is plentiful.

Wassen’s Coenzyme Q10 with Vitamin E has been designed to provide the nutrients needed for more efficient energy production on a cellular level, essential for those leading a busy or hectic lifestyle.

Each of Wassen’s one-a-day tablets contains 10mg of Coenzyme Q10, which, in just one week, would mean we would have to eat more than 10.5kgs of broccoli, 30kgs of eggs, 2.3kgs of beef or 1.2kg of fresh sardines to get the equivalent energy boost. Now, who has the time to cook all of that, let alone eat it!?

Priced at around £5.45 or 30 capsules, Wassen Coenzyme Q10 + Vitamin E is available from Boots, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Holland & Barrett, independent pharmacies and health food stores. For more information visit www.wassen.com

Notes to Editors:

Coenzyme Q10 Definition and Research:

1) Coenzyme Q10 assists in the production of ATP*, the body’s usable form of energy. If the body is unable to efficiently produce ATP, it is unable to function at its optimum level

2) A study published in the International Journal of Sports Medicine*** showed that feelings of vigour and energy increased over a two month period of Coenzyme Q10 supplementation

* Based on an adult population of 49 million

** Energy from food (glucose) is used to make ATP, which is then used as the body's major energy source to fuel all cellular reactions.
