CoQ10 benefits for Heart and Muscles

Whenever I walk through the vitamin/mineral section of any health food store… I see many different brands of CoQ10.  I had no idea what it was or why I should think about taking this supplement.  I started researching this impressive supplement with what it does.  It keeps our heart healthy and how it may help to keep us younger, longer.

Benefits from coQ10
CoQ10 and all the benefits.

What is CoQ10?

CoQ10 is a natural antioxidant that is synthesized by our bodies. This is in almost all  our cell and membranes.CoQ10. It protects our DNA and cells from damage caused by free radicals. 

What are some of the Health Benefits?

1.  One of the greatest  benefits of CoQ10 is how it supports our hearts.  In fact, the heart uses up more energy than any other part of the body.  Free radicals over time cause damage to the heart and make it weaker.  This awesome antioxidant makes the cells in the heart’s muscles stronger.  It makes the cells better produce and use energy.  It prevents muscles in the heart from weakening.  Due to oxidative damage from free radicals.  For those people who have high cholesterol and take statin drugs to lower their levels of cholesterol, they deplete the healthy CoQ10 level in the body.  So, taking CoQ10 supplements is a good idea to prevent this.

2.  Fountain of Youth?

As we age, the level of CoQ10 goes down in our bodies.  By taking this supplement, it can restore the level of this enzyme to optimal levels. It also cleanses the body of free radicals which causes our bodies to degenerate over time as we age.

3.  Lowers High Blood Pressure

4.  Increases Energy

CoQ10 helps in more than 95% of the bodies energy production!  So, this supplement is helpful for those who suffer from low energy or chronic fatigue.

Food Sources of CoQ10:

Chicken

Broccoli

Peanuts

Cauliflower

Herring

Trout

Pistachios
