Show you heart how much you love it with Co Q-10! Co Q-10, also known as Coenzyme Q10, is an antioxidant that plays a crucial role in the generation of cellular energy. Your body produces Co Q-10 naturally, but decreases as we age. A lack of sufficient Co Q-10 can lead to cardiovascular disease. Without enough of it, the heart cannot circulate blood effectively. This essential coenzyme helps your heart transport energy.
Tip: If you are prescribed a statin medication OR you take Red Yeast Rice, you NEED CoQ10! Both lab created and natural statins can deplete your body of this antioxidant.
Tip: Taking Lecithin and Vitamin E can help your body better absorb CoQ10
Q. Who should take CoQ10?
A. CoQ10 is a beneficial antioxidant and is good for anyone to use. It is especially good for mature men and women or people who take a statin medication to combat high cholesterol. These groups of people typically have lower CoQ10 levels and would greatly benefit from supplementation. People who are seeking a boost in energy and muscle strength and anti-aging or antioxidant support would also benefit from CoQ10 supplementation.
Q. Is CoQ10 the same as fish oil?
A. No, fish oil is a completely different supplement than CoQ10, even though you may hear or see the two together. If you are currently taking a fish oil supplement (we suggest Vitamin World’s Triple Strength Fish Oil 1360mg) CoQ10 might be something to add into your natural supplement regimen. It can enhance your fish oil by providing heart healthy antioxidant support and offset depletion if you are a regular statin or Red Yeast Rice user. CoQ10 is also a great addition to a general health and wellness program, as it is an antioxidant and works on protecting your body on a cellular level.
Q: How long does it take for CoQ10 to start working?
A: Most clinical studies that tout the benefits of natural supplements occur in a 12 week (3 month) time period, so it is always suggested to take a supplement for that time before assessing its effectiveness or changing dosage. We have heard feedback from our customers that they were able to see results in as little as 4 weeks of continuous daily usage.
