Did you know that CoQ10 can speed up your metabolism, boost your energy levels, slow down the aging process and help you exercise longer?
CoQ10 is found in its highest concentrations in the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas.
Foods such as beef, soybean oil, sardines, mackerel and peanuts are higher in CoQ10. Low blood levels of CoQ10 have been found in people with various types of cancer and chronic diseases including heart conditions, Parkinson’s disease, congestive heart failure, diabetes, periodontal disease and HIV/AIDS. In addition, some prescription drugs, such as statins, may lower CoQ10 levels. Natural CoQ10 levels decrease with age.
Coenzyme q10, also known as ubiquinone, is a naturally-occurring fat-soluble compound found in every cell in the body. It plays a key role in producing energy in the mitochondria, the part of a cell responsible for the production of energy in the form of ATP.
It was first discovered by Professor Fredrick L. Crane and colleagues at the University of Wisconsin–Madison Enzyme Institute in 1957.
In 1972, Gian Paolo Littarru and Karl Folkers separately demonstrated a deficiency of CoQ10 in human heart disease.
Meat and fish are the richest source of dietary CoQ10 and levels over 50 mg/kg can be found in beef, pork and chicken heart, and chicken liver. Vegetable oils are also quite rich in CoQ10. Parsley and perilla are the richest vegetable CoQ10 sources. Broccoli, grape, and cauliflower are modest sources of CoQ10. Most fruit and berries represent a poor to very poor source of CoQ10, with the exception of avocado, with a relatively high CoQ10 content.
After age 35, the body produces less CoQ10, which can lead to a weakened immune system and feeling less energetic. The fact that the body produces less CoQ10 when getting older could be linked to the aging process itself.
Why People Take Coenzyme q10 Supplements:
- Alleviate some types of migraine headaches
- Reduce the progression of Parkinson’s Disease
- Maintain / heal the heart and cardiovascular system
- Reduce blood pressure
- Treat periodontal or gum disease (CoQ10 works by inhibiting bacterial growth due to improved oxygen metabolism at the cellular levels.)
- Neutralize free radicals
- Strengthen the immune system
- Increase energy levels
- Breast cancer
- Mental alertness
- Reduce radiation injury
- Regenerate other antioxidants such as Vitamin E
- Kidney failure
Importance of Fat Soluble Molecules like Coq10:
Many people who have had their gall bladders removed, had bariatric surgery or who have compromised immune systems; have digestive problems, gluten intolerance or major health issues such celiac disease, Crohn’s or cystic fibrosis, have a difficult time absorbing fat soluble molecules, such as Coenzyme q10, which further hinders their ability to heal from their conditions.
How to Buy CoQ10 Supplements:
Coq10 supplements vary widely in price and quality. Interestingly, only 10-30% of most supplements, including liquid supplements, are absorbed. (Remember, fat soluble molecules like Coq10 can be the most difficult to absorb.) It’s not unusual to spend more than $50 per month for what’s thought to be a high quality supplement and still only have limited absorption.
When it comes to nutrition, it’s not just what you eat, it’s what you absorb. (In other words, you can be eating a very clean, pure diet, but absorbing very little of it.) Fortunately, there is a new Swiss technology, called VizPur, which makes CoQ10 and other fat soluble nutrients more absorbable, actually water soluble, with a newly stabilized, patented micelle process. The process is designed to dramatically increase absorption of fat soluble nutrients, such as Vitamin E and Vitamin D3 and Omega 3, up to 90%! Many people who used to have health disorders related to fat soluble nutrient deficiencies are already noticing tremendous improvements in their health because of these new Swiss technology water soluble products! (Have you noticed how most health solutions seem to come back to water? ”Viz” actually means “water” in Hungarian!)
