Benefits Of CoQ10

Benefits And Uses For CoQ10:

Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) is an Antioxidant produced in sufficient quantity by the body when we're young but as we age, we produce less, until we actually need to obtain it from our diets.  In fact, some refer to it as Vitamin Q, because it becomes Vital To Life in older people.  This may suggest CoQ10 can slow aging in some ways.  CoQ10 is showing promise in tests for the treatment of some cancers, migraines, Huntington's, protection against degenerative brain conditions due to Parkinson's and TIA's and may help in the treatment of certain heart conditions.  For More Information, see these recent best-selling books on the benefits and uses of CoQ10

Deficiency Symptoms Of CoQ10:

CoQ10 is considered an non-essential nutrient and has no deficiency symptoms associated, though, there seems to be a correlation between disease, aging and deficiency of CoQ10.  Also, Statin drugs used to control cholesterol interfere with normal production of CoQ10, creating a possible deficiency. 

Toxicity (Overdose) Symptoms Of CoQ10:

Check with your doctor before supplementing with CoQ10 if you're on blood thinners.  In high doses, some side effects ( nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, etc.) have been reported.  No tests have been made concerning long-term effects...exercise caution.

Foods High In CoQ10:

Meats and Seafood are high in C0Q10.

Supplements Of CoQ10:

Because the body produces CoQ10 and because it reacts to some medical drugs, we recommend you notify your doctor before supplementing.  There is no established recommended amount for daily use.  Supplementation needs will increase with age, illness and certain medical drugs used. Supplements vary greatly depending on manufacturer.  Make sure to use a reputable, well-known supplier.  Here are some of the most popular sources of CoQ10 Supplements.  

Health And Fitness For Life:

If you're looking to nutrition for health and fitness, you probably want a healthy life...not just body or looks...but mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
