My mom told me the other day that her doctor recommended that she take a CoQ10 supplement and she asked me what CoQ10 did and I had a hard time explaining it. That’s why I decided to do this week’s spotlight on our Hydrosoluble CoQ10. This spotlight will be a little different because I’m just going to talk about CoQ10 and its importance. Our wonderful Liquid Health Hydrosoluble CoQ10 product offers 50 mg of CoQ10 per 1 ounce.
Coenzyme Q10 (as hydrosoluble udibecarenone) – CoQ10 is found in every cell in the human body. This substance is necessary for many important functions in our bodies including converting the food we eat into energy. CoQ10 also acts as an antioxidant. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center “Antioxidants fight damaging particles in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Scientists believe free radicals contribute to the aging process, as well as a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants, such as CoQ10, can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause”
People take a CoQ10 supplement for many reasons including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart failure. Another possible benefit of taking CoQ10 is increased energy. A study done in Denmark in 2010 showed that mice given CoQ10 for 4 weeks showed “a significantly prolonged exhaustive swim time” as well as “increased liver glycogen contents” in comparison to the control mice.
There are a few different ways to get CoQ10. According to WebMD.com “CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods, but levels are particularly high in organ meats such as heart, liver, and kidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines, mackerel, and peanuts.” Other food sources include oily fish (such as salmon and tuna) and whole grains. If you feel you need a CoQ10 supplement there are various forms available to you, such as: soft gel capsules, oral spray, hard shell capsules, tablets and liquids.
Liquid supplements carry many benefits, including a higher absorption rate when compared to pills or tablets. Our Liquid Health Hydrosoluble CoQ10 product also contains Vitamins C and E, blueberry juice and goji berry extract for their antioxidant properties, as well as Hawthorne Berry Extract which has long been used as a cardiovascular regulator and for heart function support.
