CO-Q10

1. Prevents And Decreases Risk Of Heart Disease


Remember the study where CoQ10 helped patients with full-blown heart failure stay alive and even improved their heart strength? If you thought that was impressive, there’s more! Another study where 641 patients with heart failure were given either a placebo or CoQ10 for a year found those taking CoQ10 fared significantly better – with fewer hospitalizations and better health overall. This is by far one of the most promising and exciting aspects of CoQ10 and it’s complementary vitamins D and K2. If you know anyone with a heart condition, urge them to look into these important nutrients.

 

2. Reduces Inflammation All Over The Body

 

Due to it’s antioxidative effects, research has found that CoQ10 reduces inflammation in the body. This is significant because so many diseases are caused by inflammation. We are realizing that inflammation is often due to our poor health habits, insufficient sleep, and… you guessed it – lack of nutrients! CoQ10 is one nutrient you should increase to fight off disease-causing inflammation.

 

3. Fights Gingivitis And Bleeding Gums

 

One of the best effects we’ve seen with CoQ10 so far, is it’s positive impact on gum disease. Obviously, I’m pretty excited about this. Research has found that CoQ10 can be used as topical treatment for periodontal disease. Gum disease is a pervasive problem that leads to widespread health issues when left untreated. Your mouth is a gateway to the rest of your health and CoQ10 can help keep you healthy.

 

4. Works With The Crucial Fat-Soluble Vitamins

 

As CoQ10 is a fat soluble nutrient, it’s also coupled with their fantastic benefits. This is primarily because fat soluble vitamins are carried in lipoproteins, which can stay in your body longer and are much better absorbed. Other fat soluble vitamins include vitamin A, D, and K2 – which is pivotal for your bones, teeth, and every other system in the body.

 

Vitamin A, D, and K2 all interact with your immune system to decrease risk of infection and decrease allergies and auto-immunity.

 

5. Fights Cognitive Decline, Improves Memory And Brain Performance

 

Low CoQ10 levels are associated with a bunch of health conditions, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Research has found that  CoQ10 is neuroprotective by aiding in ATP synthesis and related mitochondrial functions. In fact, in Dr. Dale Bredesen’s protocol for reversing Alzheimer’s he recommends increasing CoQ10 consumption and supplementation.

Best Food Sources Of CoQ10:

 

Right about now you’re probably wishing you had some CoQ10...Good news is there’s loads of great foods packed with CoQ10. Some of the best natural food sources of CoQ10 include:

 

  • Beef liver (Don’t like Liver?) Try these grass-fed beef liver capsules full of fat-soluble vitamins.
  • Grass-fed beef
  • Chicken
  • Mackerel
  • Sardines
  • Broccoli
  • Peanuts

Should You Take CoQ10 Supplements?

 

CoQ10 supplementation is generally a good idea. As with any supplement, you should be sure to only use a high-quality product. Recommended dosages range slightly because as I mentioned before, it’s still a relatively newcomer in the world of nutrition.

 

That being said, I recommend 200 milligrams per day for adults. If you’re taking statins, CoQ10 supplementation has been shown to offset the effects of this damaging medication and you can take more.  A recent study found that statins not only deplete CoQ10 but also inhibit the synthesis of Vitamin K2. These nutrients are important for anyone with heart conditions, especially those taking statins.

You should take your CoQ10 supplement with something fatty to help your body absorb it better.

 

What Is The Best Type Of CoQ10 Supplement?

 

In the body, CoQ10 exists either in its oxidized form, ubiquinone, or in its reduced form, ubiquinol. When oxidized CoQ10 (ubiquinone) is used by the body, it transforms and becomes ubiquinol.

A CoQ10 supplement is best taken in ubiquinol form. Dosage of CoQ10 is 100–200 mg/d with food.

One indication may be if you’re currently taking statins, or struggling with adverse effects caused by previous statin use.
