Subject: CoQ10 — A Nutritional Powerhouse for Mitochondrial Health
coenzyme Q10, which is referred to as CoQ10 is gaining popularity in the supplement marketplace. The number of Americans who are using this supplement has risen to twenty-four million people. This is good news as research shows its benefits. New research shows it keeps the mitochondria healthy, allowing for oxygen to be converted to energy.
- At present, at least 1 in 4 American adults over the age of 40 are taking a statin — ostensibly to protect their heart health.
- This is the enzyme inhibited by statin drugs. This means that, in addition to lowering your cholesterol, the drug also compromises your body's ability to benefit from a healthy and cleaner-burning fuel (fat).
- Recent research found that taking CoQ10 in combination with selenium improves heart function and cuts cardiovascular mortality by nearly 50 percent in elderly people.
"Between 2000 and 2016, the number of Americans using CoQ10 increased from an estimated 2 million to 24 million, and the number of brands featuring CoQ10 has increased from 18 brands to 125."
