Health Benefits of Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 has exploded onto the health scene. 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. Studies show that an estimated 25% deficiency of CoQ10 will cause serious metabolic health problems.
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."
Here are just a few of the health benefits of CoQ10:
Weight Loss - stimulates your body’s metabolism
In various other studies CoQ10 was a tremendous benefit in lowering high blood pressure and helped with angina and congestive heart failure.
So where can you find CoQ10? A small amount, 10 to 20 milligrams of CoQ10, can be found in fish and organ meats of animals. But if you’re not keen on organ meats an easily available source of this nutrient is found in many high quality nutritional supplements.
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.
