Blood Flow in the 2 chambers. CoQ10 enzyme helps cells use energy better

CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is an antioxidant that is a necessary nutrient for cell function in the body, specially that of the heart cells. It has numerous health benefits.

When a person is young, the liver generates this powerful enzyme to support the health of cells, (especially that of the heart).

Very often CoQ10 concentrations  decrease as we age. Supplementing becomes an important heart health boost as this antioxidant may help support healthy aging of cells.

The CoQ10 enzyme, beside being important and possibly helping maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, may also help maintain healthy blood pressure levels in a person with already normal blood pressure. (It doesn’t necessarily reduce that of people with high blood pressure).

* This was a Very important reason to supplement my body’s generation of CoQ10 with natural supplements. Although I don’t take Statin Medications, as I understand from studies, it is in these instances where someone is taking Statin medication, such as Lipitor Crestor etc. it will benefit the most. This is because most statin medication can reduce CoQ10 levels by impeding the liver’s capability of producing it. So supplementing can  replenish what Statin medications may deplete.

Here is a list of all the CoQ10 supplements that Amazon sells. (Buy CoQ10 from here) Includes both types of CoQ10.

Versions: There are 2 versions of CoQ10 (coenzyme Q10), Ubiquinone, and Ubiquinol.

Ubiquinone: Is straight CoQ10, and usually younger people (younger than 30) benefit from this version more, because the body converts it to Ubiquinol to use it.

Ubiquinol: Is an electron-rich (reduced) form of coenzyme Q10. It is easier to absorb by those over 30. It is a “Pre-Processed” version of CoQ10, if you will. Once over a certain age (25-30), the body has to work harder to convert Ubiquinone to Ubiquinol. I personally take 4 days of Ubiquinol (100mg) and 3 days of Ubiquinone (300mg), just to cover my bases. The difference in dosage necessary for them to be equivalent.

Here’s a link to each one if you would like to order from Amazon and have it delivered to you.

A word of warning though: CoQ10 is not  a replacement for Statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while Supplementing with CoQ10
