This powerful
mineral has many health saving properties. It is responsible for
essential chemical reactions in your body as well as being a
dynamite antioxidant.
What’s more, Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 occurs naturally in your body,
(and that’s good), but unfortunately, as you age, have
nutritional deficiencies or get sick you are producing less of
this essential mineral.
And check this out…studies show that an estimated 25%
deficiency will cause serious metabolic health problems. At 75%,
death will follow and that would mean no more birthday cake for
CoQ10 plays a key role in the production of adenosine
triphosphate (ATP) needed for energy production in every cell. It
also has a powerful antioxidant that helps guard against damage
from free radicals.
And that is just for starters, cardiologist Peter Langsjorn
explains “Like the vitamins discovered in the early part of this
century, CoQ10 is an essential element of food that can now be
used medically.”
It gets even better…
Here are just a few of the health benefits:
Weight Loss – stimulates your bodies metabolism
Healthy Gums – suppresses gingival inflammation
Male Fertility – improves sperm mobility and protects
free radical injury
Cardiovascular – improvement of symptoms in cardiac and
congestive heart failure patients
Immune System – significantly enhances function
In various other studies CoQ10 was a tremendous benefit in
lowering high blood pressure and helped with angina and
congestive heart failure.
So you may be asking yourself, “Wow, where do I find this
stuff??” well, good news and bad news. A small amount, 10 to 20
milligrams of CoQ10, can be found in fish and organ meats of
animals. Well…that slowed me down a little! I don’t like organ
meats of animals, do you? Yuck! Here is another solution. An
easily available source of this nutrient is in many high quality
nutritional systems.
Safe scientific formulated blends of vitamins and minerals
including CoQ10 are specially formulated for maximum absorption.
For adults taking Coenzyme Q10 in a supplement, the optimal
amount should be between 30 and 90 mg per day. Under a doctors
care, higher amounts may be prescribed.
Regardless of age or health almost everybody would benefit from
taking CoQ10 daily. Our health and quality of life are based on
feeling good and having healthy energy supplies.
And really people… this is so much better for your energy
levels than a cigarette and a diet soda!
