Benefits of Coenzyme Q10

There are a lot of wonderful vitamins and supplements that can have huge impacts on your health. One of them that I haven't touched on before is Coenzyme Q10. I hope you enjoy learning more about this wonderful supplement.

"The power of antioxidants and their role in contributing to a healthy lifestyle has been documented in study after scientific study not only by doctors but also by nutritionists. One such positive antioxidant affecting the body you've probably heard of before and seen listed as an ingredient on everything from skin lotions, to dietary supplements, is Coenzyme q10. The substance, which is sometimes referred to as coenzyme coq10, or CoQ10, is a natural enzyme that is formed in the body. High levels of coenzyme coq10 in the body have been linked to lower instances of heart disease, obesity and even diabetes. For those whose bodies don't make enough of the compound, or makes very little, there are ways to increase levels of the substance in the body by either taking dietary supplements of coq10, or eating foods rich in the substance. You can find coenzyme coq10 supplements at virtually any vitamin supply store or pharmacy. The majority come in liquid pill form and are recommended to be taken as little as once a day, or up to three times per day, depending on the strength of the pill chosen."

"For those who want to boost the amount of coenzyme q10 in the body without having to resort to buying and taking supplements, another way is to introduce the antioxidant into your body through eating foods that are high in the substance. There are a number of healthy foods that are high in the antioxidant, including fish products. One of the best sources is from fish that are from cold-water climates such as salmon and sardines. Another benefit of getting your antioxidants from fish sources is the existence of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3's have also been shown to help reduce levels of heart disease. If you're not a fish person, you can also find coq10 in a variety of nuts and vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, and pistachio nuts. Fruits like strawberries also contain small amounts of the healthy substance. Often times when researching coq10 supplements, you may also come across items that contain idebenone. Idebenone is actually a close relative of coq10; only it is synthetic version that was used to help cure symptoms of a number of cognitive diseases, such as muscular dystrophy. Idebenone supplements for sale online are oftentimes associated with providing healthy skins and for combatting the signs of aging. If you are looking for supplements to help better protect your heart and combat free radicals in the environment, coq10 supplements and eating healthy are the best options. Coq10 products you will find in skin lotions are meant to improve the look of the skin, but won't likely protect your heart."
