What is CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Quoting a cardiologist, "If there is just one thing you do to help maintain your heart's health, make sure you're taking CoQ-10 daily." CoQ10 plays a large role in the absorption and use of oxygen by your body's cells.
CoQ10 exists in every cell, organ, and tissue of the body. Our lives depend on CoQ10 for survival. Without it, we cease to live. However, our bodies contain such a limited amount, and we inevitably exhaust its supply simply through everyday living. Stress, illness, exercise, and natural aging significantly deprive the body of necessary CoQ10. With age, our bodies witness gradual decline of this indispensable chemical. Furthermore, our bodies fail to reproduce it, and hence require other means of access.
Real Benefits of Taking CoQ10:
1.It enhances the immune system
2.It might indeed be the 'Fountain Of Youth'
3.It is great for the heart - improving the ability of it to pump more blood.
4.Increases the energy level.
5.Helps in gum diseases.
6.Increases collagen and elastin in the skin, and help repair damaged skin cells.
Why CoQ10 might be the Fountain Of Youth?
In most cases, CoQ10 levels begin to drop after age 30, leaving the body more vulnerable to free radical damage. Studies have shown that CoQ10 supplements may help increase collagen and elastin in the skin, and help repair damaged skin cells. CoQ10 is an ingredient in many skincare creams that claim to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and protect the skin from aging. CoQ10 may be more effective than other topical vitamin treatments because it is a small molecule that can relatively easily penetrate into skin cells.
CoQ10 should be taken everyday as a supplement. Taking 30mg will be sufficient. The dosage can be increased as and when required.
