Supplements You May Need, but Might Not Know About: Part 2

This week Nutrition Line will discuss the benefits of another supplement found in Biometics products that many people need, but are not commonly known.

Heart Protector: Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is also known as ubiquinone, from the word “ubiquitous,” meaning present everywhere. It is essential to the process that allows your cells to produce the energy to do all of the things that keep you alive. Beginning in the 1950s, a number of successful studies and research projects have been completed on the benefits and multiple purposes of CoQ10 including its use in heart health, Parkinson’s disease, the immune system, and even cancer.

A new study suggests that CoQ10 supplementation can reduce some symptoms of Parkinson’s disease by improving the function of the patients mitochondria- the “powerhouses” that produce energy in cells. In the multicenter Parkinson’s Study Group, patients who took high doses of CoQ10 in early stages actually slowed progression of the disease.

In multiple studies, it was shown that people with congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathy, both frequently fatal conditions, recover more quickly when CoQ10 was added to conventional treatment.

Because there have been studies that show CoQ10 to be effective in boosting the immune system, it is now being researched and explored for its effects against cancer. Although a clinical trial has not yet been conducted, the future is bright. A related chemical has shown promise in suppressing cancer growth in test tubes and in animals by possibly disrupting the process of cancer-stricken cell growth.

CoQ10 is primarily found in animal products, however, even if you are a meat eater and consume large amounts of meat and fish products every day, you probably do not consume more than 15mg of CoQ10 (100mg was used in clinical trials).

**If you have a serious illness, are taking a prescription blood thinner, or are concerned about taking CoQ10, see your doctor or health care professional before taking the supplement.

BIOMETICS offers a full line of advanced liquid nutrition for overall body health. CELL CARE contains 30mg of CoQ10 for improved heart and cellular health!
