CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a Potent Antioxidant Used for Energy and Heart Health
Mitochondria are the powerhouse for the cells in your body, and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vital component to maintaining healthy, functioning mitochondria. CoQ10 is an enzyme which is essential for convert the energy stored in fats and sugars of the food we eat into viable cellular energy. Unfortunately, your body’s CoQ10 production decreases drastically with the aging process. With the right amount of CoQ10, mitochondria can work much more effectively throughout your entire body. Most importantly, CoQ10 works to help maintain good heart health because it works more effectively in more dense areas. Your heart is considered as the most dense. CoQ10 is also used as a powerful antioxidant. It helps to protect proteins, and DNA of mitochondria from oxidation and supporting mitochondrial function.
Many individuals are supplementing with CoQ10 now more than ever. One good reason for this is an increased awareness that statin drugs that are used to lower LDL and cholesterol deplete CoQ10 levels in the blood, and possibly the tissues. Not to mention the numerous, and potentially deadly side-effects of these cholesterol lowering drugs
Most doctors don’t realize that the aging process can result in a higher reduction in CoQ10 than taking statins. For example, while statin drugs have been shown to reduce CoQ10 levels in your body by nearly 40%, the aging process has been shown to reduce CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by up to 72%. What is particularly frightening is the deficit caused by the dual effects of aging and statin drug use that can result in severe depletion of cellular vitality.
So, if you are currently taking a prescription statin drug and you are over the age of 40, then it is vital to your heart health to start taking a Coenzyme Q10 supplement. Give your heart what it deserves.......and needs, Life Extension CoQ10.
