Coenzyme Q10 - The Powerhouse of Vitamins

Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like compound that plays a central role in cellular energy production. CoQ10 is found throughout the body, but is especially concentrated in the heart, liver, and kidney and production has been found to decline with age. CoQ10 works with vitamin E as a potent free radical scavenger in cell membranes, as well as within blood vessels. Years of scientific research have shown that CoQ10 helps to maintain a healthy heart and vascular system.

What are the benefits of CoQ10?

The benefits of CoQ10 are many and varied. For one, it is an extremely powerful antioxidant. This means that it scavenges free radicals within the body, which can damage cells and lead to a host of health problems. Additionally, CoQ10 has been shown to support cardiovascular health by helping to maintain healthy blood pressure levels and protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidation.*

CoQ10 has also been shown to boost cognitive function and memory.* In one study, subjects who took 200mg of CoQ10 per day for 12 weeks showed significant improvements in memory when compared to a placebo group.* Another study showed that subjects who took 300mg of CoQ10 per day for 16 weeks had significantly improved mental clarity and focus.*

How do I get more CoQ10 in my diet?

CoQ10 is found naturally in fatty fish like salmon and tuna, as well as in organ meats like liver and kidney. However, because cooking can destroy some of the CoQ10 content of foods, taking a supplement may be necessary to ensure adequate intake. Additionally, because production of CoQ10 declines with age, it is especially important for older adults to make sure they are getting enough through diet or supplementation. Good dietary sources of CoQ10 include:

* Salmon

* Tuna

* Liver

* Kidney

* Spinach

* Broccoli

* Nuts

As we age, our bodies produce less and less CoQ20. This decline begins around age 20 and continues throughout the remainder of our lives.* Because CoQ20 plays such an important role in cellular energy production, this decline can lead to decreased energy levels and overall fatigue.* Additionally, because CoQ20 is such a powerful antioxidant, its decline can put us at greater risk for developing chronic diseases like heart disease.* Supplementing with CoQ20 can help to offset the age-related decline in production and protect against cellular damage.* Supplements are available in both capsule and softgel form. When choosing a supplement, look for one that is 100% natural and devoid of artificial fillers or binders.

Suggested Usage: Take 1 capsule daily with a meal.
