CoQ10 for a Heart Health

Innisfil Scope

COQ10, an abbreviation for Coenzyme Q10, is a compound produced naturally by the body which assists the functioning of enzymes, which in turn are responsible for chemical reactions that take place in our bodies such as regulating our metabolism, breaking down and digesting our food, healing wounds, and maintaining healthy muscles.

Because Coenzyme Q10 is central to the production of energy, itís not surprising that it is found in high concentrations in the heart muscle, which requires a tremendous amount of energy to perform its functions. COQ10 has been shown to strengthen the heart muscle, and prevent heart attacks and heart disease. Coenzyme Q10 has been proven in multiple major studies to significantly improve the health of patients with congestive heart failure.

In addition, other studies have revealed that people suffering from cardiovascular disease tend to have low levels of this crucial nutrient. Coenzyme Q10 also acts as a nutrient with powerful antioxidant properties as well. Common uses include treatment for prevention of heart attacks and recovery, high blood pressure, diabetes, gum disease, kidney failure, migraines, Parkinson's disease and weight loss, and breast cancer. Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to deplete in our bodies the older we get. Therefore, supplementation is probably most important for the aging.
