Burdock, Coenzyme Q10 and Curcumin

The herb burdock has been tested by researchers for its antioxidant properties.

They found burdock is a powerful antioxidant, capable of scavenging free radicals.

The study showed also burdock and vitamin E kill more free radicals when used in combination.

Burdock also might protect against cancer by helping to control cell mutation.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant structurally similar to vitamin E.

It plays a crucial role in creating cellular energy, is a significant immune system stimulant, increases circulation, has antiaging effects, and is beneficial for your cardiovascular system.

Also known as ubiquinone, coenzyme Q10 is found in highest concentrations in the heart, followed by the liver, kidney, spleen, and pancreas.

Within your cells’ energy-production centers, coenzyme Q10 helps to metabolize fats and carbohydrates.

It also helps to keep your cell membranes flexible.

Many research reports suggest coenzyme Q10 also may be beneficial in treating cancer, AIDS, muscular dystrophy, allergies, gastric ulcers, myopathy, Parkinson’s disease, and deafness.

Natural sources of coenzyme Q10 include meats, peanuts, sardines, and spinach.


Found in the spice turmeric, curcumin has antioxidant properties that prevent the formation of and neutralize existing free radicals.

It stops precancerous changes within DNA and interferes with enzymes necessary for cancer progression.

Curcumin stops the oxidation of cholesterol, thus protecting against the formation of plaque in your arteries.

In a study of chronic smokers, those who took curcumin excreted a substantially lower level of substances inducing cells to mutate in their urine, a reflection of how well the body is dealing with cancer-causing substances.

Curcumin has also been shown to benefit people with advanced pancreatic cancer.

It may also calm an overactive immune system in people with ulcerative colitis, reducing inflammation, redness, and soreness.

In one study, curcumin helped keep people with ulcerative colitis from experiencing intestinal flare-ups.

But it doesn’t seem to be effective for other inflammatory conditions like psoriasis.

Curcumin also blocks toxic compounds from reaching or reacting with your body tissues, and may prevent cataracts.

Curcumin shouldn’t be taken by anyone with biliary tract obstruction or who’s taking anticoagulants, because curcumin stimulates bile secretion and acts as a a blood-thinner.
