It's Wellness Wednesday with Dr. Borges! Today's topic is the Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10):
Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is a compound used to generate energy in your cells. Your body produces CoQ10 naturally, but production decreases with age.
Many health conditions have been linked to low levels of CoQ10, however it is not clear whether low levels of CoQ10 cause these diseases or are a result of them. Research has shown the many health benefits of CoQ10.
CoQ10 levels in the body tend to decrease as you age, and supplementation becomes more crucial to good health.
The primary functions of CoQ10 are to start the production of energy in your cells and to serve as an antioxidant and protect cells from oxidative damage. These properties make it helpful in the preservation of cells and the prevention and treatment of some chronic diseases. Oxidative damage produces free radicals, which can interfere with regular cell functioning. This is known to cause many health conditions.
CoQ10 supplementation can have have positive effects on the following: Heart Health, Fertility, Skin Damage, Chronic Headaches, Exercise Performance, Diabetes, Cancer Prevention, Brain Health and Lung Disease.
CoQ10 comes in two different forms — ubiquinol and ubiquinone. Ubiquinol accounts for 90% of the CoQ10 in the blood and is the most absorbable form so it is best to choose supplements containing the ubiquinol form like our 4Ever CoQ10 Supplement. This is the active form of CoQ10, a potent antioxidant, that is depleted with age, stress and certain medications. 4Ever CoQ10 Supplement contains Ubiquinol, which has been shown to have 4-8 times better absorbability than ubiquinone.
Since CoQ10 production decreases with age, adults of every age could benefit from supplementation.
