CoQ10 Nutrient Is A Must
CoQ10 is a nutrient, discovered by Fred Crane in 1957, that has profound effects on our levels of energy, stamina, organ health, immune system functionality and more. You can find CoQ10 in fish, like sardines and mackerel, as well as beef and peanuts.
Our cells require this coenzyme to function properly on a day-to-day basis and it’s considered to be an extremely strong antioxidant existing within our mitochondria fighting off free radicals. Without it, we suffer cell death – period. Improved health and less cell death is critical for anyone, either a high intensity athlete looking to improve a skill or muscle strength or the average person that just wants to enjoy a round of golf etc.
Not only does this coenzyme play a part in slowing the aging process in healthy people but it can reduce issues with blood pressure, ulcers, migraines, muscular dystrophy, heart disease and a wide variety of other illnesses.
If you suffer from a condition that forces you to take medications like statin drugs (for combating high cholesterol), then it’s important to consult a physician about taking the supplement. Medications can affect the metabolic process and some drugs, like statins, are known to decrease CoQ10 levels.
CoQ10 can increase energy, stamina, improve immune health to fight off sickness and much more.
How does it work?
Coenzyme Q-10 is an important vitamin-like substance required for the proper function of many organs and chemical reactions in the body. It helps provide energy to cells. Coenzyme Q-10 also seems to have antioxidant activity. People with certain diseases, such as congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, periodontal disease, Parkinson’s disease, certain muscular diseases, and AIDS, might have lower levels of coenzyme Q-10.
Coenzyme Q-10 has even been tried for increasing life span. This idea got started because coenzyme Q-10 levels are highest in the first 20 years of life. By age 80, coenzyme-Q10 levels can be lower than they were at birth. Some people thought that restoring high levels of coenzyme-Q10 late in life might cause people to live loger. The idea works in bacteria, but not in lab rats. More research is needed to see if this works in people.
