09 Feb 7 Incredible Health Benefits of CoQ10
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant naturally produced by your body. Your cells use CoQ10 for maintenance and growth.
Levels of CoQ10 in your body decrease as you age. People with certain conditions, such as heart disease, and those who take cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins, may have lower levels of CoQ10.
CoQ10 is found in meat, fish and nuts. However, the amount of CoQ10 found in these dietary sources is not enough to significantly increase CoQ10 levels in your body.
CoQ10 supplements are available at Vivify. Our medspa offers CoQ10 booster shots that are quick, easy and offer maximum absorption compared to oral alternatives.
Some of the incredible health benefits of CoQ10:
Improves cardiovascular function
Numerous clinical trials indicated that CoQ10 is very effective in the treatment and prevention of congestive heart failure, angina, arrhythmia, myocardial degeneration and hypertension. Researchers report that CoQ10 may have significant benefits for people with cardiovascular disease (CVD), from reducing risk for repeat heart attacks and improving outcomes in patients with heart failure to lowering blood pressure and helping combat side effects of cholesterol-lowering statins.
Boosts energy and stamina
Oxidative stress can affect muscle function, and thus, exercise performance. CoQ10 can help exercise performance by decreasing oxidative stress in the cells and improving mitochondrial functions
Supports cognitive function
The brain is very susceptible to oxidative damage due to its high fatty acid content and its high demand for oxygen. Oxidative damage enhances the production of harmful compounds that could affect memory, cognition and physical functions. CoQ10 may reduce these harmful compounds, possibly slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Fights free radical damage
CoQ10 is a very effective antioxidant that fights free radicals, as well as supporting the body’s metabolic processes.
Supports healthy vision and hearing
Coenzyme Q10 is involved in the energy production in the mitochondria, which are the power plants in our cells. It also ensures that our hearing cells have enough energy to function correctly. As an antioxidant, coenzyme Q10 protects our cells from harmful free radicals. Studies show treatment with coenzyme Q10 sped up the recovery process following exposure to acoustic stress.
Improves oral health
CoQ10 contains quinines that help produce energy through the use of oxygen. With gum problems, a deficiency in CoQ10 is often seen. CoQ10 strengthens gum tissue and helps stave off the unwanted bacteria in the mouth that can cause plaque. By helping support the management of oral bacteria, CoQ10 is able to support a healthy inflammatory response important for gum health.
Promotes smooth, supple skin
CoQ10 can help prevent premature aging neutralizing free radicals and keeping cells healthy.
