CoQ10 is What Gives Our Cells Life!
CoQ10 is a catalyst for food metabolism working in conjunction with enzymes, thus the name “coenzyme”. It is essential for the body’s cells, tissues and organs. CoQ10 is present everywhere in the body and without it, our cells can’t function. Every cell needs this vital coenzyme to create energy within the cell and keep up with life’s unceasing demands on our bodies. Co-Q10 is found in the highest concentrations in cells of the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas.*
CoQ10 and Aging
As we age, our body slows down in its production of CoQ10 and our reserves of CoQ10 are gradually depleted. It is thought that after age 20, your body’s production of CoQ10 begins to decline. Normal aging can reduce the Coenzyme Q10 levels in the heart by as much as 72%. It becomes more important to keep CoQ10 levels in our bodies stable.*
CoQ10 for the Brain
The brain is especially vulnerable to oxidative stress due to its rich oxygen supply and high fatty acid content. It would seem logical that the brain’s antioxidant defense system would be especially robust. Unfortunately, the opposite is the case. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant and can significantly neutralize the free radicals that cause oxidative stress thus assisting in keeping in brain health.*
CoQ10 and Your Heart
As mentioned earlier, CoQ10 is most highly concentrated in your heart muscle cells. The heart is made up primarily of cardiac muscle tissue and has the highest energy requirements of all the muscles. CoQ10 provides your heart cells the energy to stay strong.*Who Should Take CoQ10
People that are 19 years old and older will benefit from CoQ10 supplementation. CoQ10 is fat-soluble so should be taken with a meal containing fat for optimal absorption. Also, taking CoQ10 at night may help with the body’s ability to use it.
