Have you heard of CoQ10and wondered why it’s important? For starters, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) helps generate energy in every one of our cells. As people age, they produce less CoQ10.
So CoQ10 is vital for our energy levels, and it’s alsoa strong antioxidant that helps protect our cells from free radicals, which can damage our cells and may result in health problems. The best source of CoQ10 is organ meat, which is often not a favorite choice for most people, but pork, beef, chicken, and certain fatty fish are also good sources.
Here are just a few ways CoQ10 may benefit our bodies:
Supplementing with CoQ10 may be particularly helpful for people taking cholesterol-lowering statin medication. Some studies have found that CoQ10 may be helpful in reducing the muscle aches, fatigue and memory concerns that often occur with statin medication.1
Clinical studies have shown CoQ10 to be effective in supporting gum health and in reducing inflammation. For a closer look at the research, check out the study on COQ10 below.2
