While there is simply no substitute for eating healthy unprocessed whole foods, there is some need to complement your diet with some nutritional supplements.

One of these is CoenzymeQ1O (COQ10) which has been available for decades. COQ10 limits free radical production, which affects the aging process. It also helps boost your body’s cellular energy production.

Free radicals are oxygen atoms deficient in electrons that become highly reactive. This in turn causes potential damage to your tissues and DNA.

So exactly is CoEnzymeQ10?

Well an enzyme has two parts. A protein and another part that’s either a mineral or a vitamin. When this “other part” is a vitamin it’s called coenzyme. COQ10 has similar structure to Vitamin K, and it acts as a catalyst in various chemical reactions that leads to the production of energy namely ATP.

You store enough ATP that will sustain rigorous activity for 5 to 8 minutes, and ATP must be constantly produced. For this to happen, your body needs a good supply of COQ10.

The heart and the liver contain the highest levels of COQ10 in the body. Dr. Stephen Sinatra, a cardiologist, says if there is just one think you do to help maintain your heart health, make sure you are taking COQ10 daily.

The challenge you face as you age is your body levels of COQ10 continue to diminish. Some reports say your COQ10 level decline becomes apparent as early as your 20’s

COQ10 can help you in many ways to complement your healthy body and energize your life.

* Help you produce more energy for your cells.

* Boost your heart health

* Act as an antioxidant to help protect you from free radicals.

* Help you reduce the signs of normal aging

* Help you maintain blood pressure levels within the normal range.

* Provide a boost to your immune system

* Support your nervous system

If you or someone else you know is taking statin drugs, it is essentially important that you should start taking COQ10 immediately to replenish your COQ10 levels.

Statin drugs work to lower your cholesterol in the same way your body uses to produce COQ10. Normally well over 99% of people on statin drugs do not need them.

You really should be able to easily optimize your cholesterol levels with simple lifestyle changes.

When selecting COQ10 it should be a top-notch product.

Here’s what it should be able to do:

* Deliver high-absorption formulas regardless of your age.

* Be all-natural with no synthetic ingredients.

* Come from a highly reputable company with some of the strictest quality control and safety standard practices in place.

They are even more possible advantages of COQ10:

* Support healthy gums

* Help maintain blood sugar levels

* Promote normalization of your weight

Coenzyme is not only an antioxidant; it can also help with a number of diseases such as diabetes, gingivitis, congestive heart failure and more.

Here’s a very important message you should learn. Nutritional supplements are very important to your overall health. If you can get all the nutrients you need from food you eat that’s great.

However, in most cases, people don’t get enough nutrients they need just from their regular diet. If your doctor is well educated about nutrition then you can get your information that way. If that’s not a possibility, then it’s best to visit a home-owned nutritional supplement store where you can get some good advice on which ones to add to your daily health regimen.
