Many of us heard that certain supplements such as Fish Oil (Omega-3 Fatty Acids) and Magnesium might be good for our heart. But not many people know about one very interesting, and still newly emerging supplement in the market today -CoQ10. So let's talk about it!
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q 10) is an essential component of the human body and plays a role in cell growth and maintenance, energy, and antioxidant protection.
Highest concentration of CoQ10 is observed in the heart; however, its levels decline naturally with age. Low levels of CoQ10 have been associated with loss of contractile function of the heart and reduced ability of vessels to dilate (which may lead to hypertension and clogged arteries).
CoQ10 is also an essential supplement for those who take statins or have been taking statins in the past. It replenishes CoQ10 levels and can reduce side effects of statin medications such as muscle pain.
Other benefits of CoQ10 might include:
CoQ10 is found in meat, fish and nuts, however the amount of CoQ10 found in food is not enough to restore its levels to normal.
