Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance found in all parts of your body.

The way it works is similar to vitamin E.

It may be an even more powerful antioxidant.

It’s also called ubiquinone.

There are 10 common substances called coenzyme Qs, but coenzyme Q10 is the only one found in human tissue.

This substance plays a critical role in producing energy in every cell of your body.

It’s good for circulation, your immune system, getting oxygen to your tissues, and anti-aging.

Deficiencies of coenzyme Q10 have been linked to periodontal disease, diabetes, and muscular dystrophy.

Research has revealed supplemental coenzyme Q10 is beneficial for people with allergies, asthma, or respiratory disease.

Many people also use it when taking cholester9ol-lowering drugs reduce leg cramps.

Medical literature doesn’t support this, but coenzyme Q10 isn’t harmful and there’s enough anecdotal information about relieving cramping, so it can’t hurt to try it.

Coenzyme Q10 is used to treat difficulties with mental function, like those associated with schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease.

It’s also beneficial in fighting obesity, candidiasis, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes.

Other conditions – like heart disease, migraines, and Parkinson’s disease – are related to a defect in your body’s ability to turn food into energy, and coenzyme Q10 may help.

Coenzyme Q10 appears to be a giant step forward in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

A 6-year study by scientists found people being treated for congestive heart failure who took coenzyme Q10 in addition to conventional therapy had a 75% chance of survival after 3 years, compared with a 25% survival rate for those using conventional therapy alone.

In a similar study, coenzyme Q10 was shown to be able to lower high blood pressure without medication or dietary changes.

In addition to fighting cardiovascular disease, coenzyme Q10 has been shown to be effective in reducing mortality in experimental animals afflicted with tumors and leukemia.

Some doctors give their patients coenzyme Q10 to reduce the side effects of cancer chemotherapy.

Coenzyme Q10 is widely used in Japan.

More than 12 million people there are reportedly taking it for treatment of heart disease (it strengthens your heart muscle), high blood pressure, and to enhance the immune system.

Research in Japan has shown coenzyme Q10 also protects your stomach lining and duodenum, and may help heal duodenal ulcers.

The amount of coenzyme Q10 present in your body declines with age, so it should be supplemented in your diet, especially by people who are over the age of 50.

Sources

Mackerel, salmon, and sardines contain the largest amounts of coenzyme Q10.

It’s also found in beef, peanuts, and spinach.

People consume about 10-15 milligrams a day, mainly from meat and fish.

Vegetarians should be aware their intake may be less than optimal and should consider supplementation.

Comments

Coenzyme Q10 is oil soluble and is best absorbed when taken with oily or fatty foods, like fish.

Be cautious when buying coenzyme Q10.

Not all products offer it in its purest form.

It should be kept away from heat and light.

Pure coenzyme Q10 is perishable and deteriorates in temperatures above 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
