Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) helps convert food into energy, it also serves as an antioxidant and plays a vital role in oxygen utilization, blood sugar balance and energy production, particularity in heart, liver, brain and the kidneys. Statins can reduce serum levels of CoQ10 by up to 40% so those who take statins will benefit from taking a CoQ-10 supplement
COQ10 Boosts Cellular Energy to Give Total Body Health and Wellness
Your mitochondrial function is at the heart of everything that happens in your body, that risk extends particularly to your energy-demanding heart muscle and the rate at which your organs age. However, you don’t need to helplessly stand by and allow assaults on your cells from free radicals rise as you age and watch your body’s natural defences to fight them gradually weaken
Cinnamon Lowers High Blood Sugar
We have added the spice Cinnamon to CoQ10 because it contains a polyphenol called MHCP which mimics insulin to help improve glucose metabolism and reducing bad fats associated with heart disease. Each capsule contains 1000 mgs of Cinnamon bark extract.
Researchers believe preventing mitochondrial dysfunction – is the key to your total body health and wellness and the number one nutrient to prevent this happening is COQ10 in the form of Ubiquinol. We supply 120mgs Ubiquinol per capsule in this amazing anti-ageing anti-stress antioxidant supplement. We have also added 1000 mgs of cinnamon bark standardised extract known for its beneficial effects on balancing blood sugar.
Ubiquinol supports heart health, especially important for women
Benefits of CoQ10
- boost your energy and stamina levels
- protect your mitochondria from free radical and oxidative assault
- support the health of your brain and cardiovascular system
- reduce normal signs of ageing to make you feel younger
- enhance the support of your immune and nervous systems
- support your CoQ10 levels if you are taking a statin drug
Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) is a substance that is found naturally in the body which helps convert food into energy, many factors can lower CoQ10 levels including; ageing, use of statins, poor diet and oxidative stress. Studies show that if levels decline by a 25% deficiency our organs and systems cannot meet their energy requirements. CoQ-10 is actively involved in making ATP, the energy required by heart cell muscles, the brain, kidneys so many people take a supplement to lower the risk of heart related problems.
Coenzyme Q10 reduces statin muscle side effects
We supply 120 grams of CoQ-10 per capsule, this dosage is shown effective to help stop muscle pains caused by taking statins, a class of drugs used to lower cholesterol. Statins are now used by hundreds of millions of people every day, of which at least one in twenty will develop muscle-related side effects. According to the US-based Journal of Family Practice, coenzyme Q10 supplements are the only treatment that has shown promise in treating statin adverse effects such as muscle pain symptoms. It's also advisable to take a vitamin D3 supplement as vitamin D is made in the body from cholesterol and when statins lower cholesterol, they also lower vitamin D3 production. Lack of vitamin D has also been associated with muscle side effects.
Blood Sugar and Statins
There is general agreement that statin drugs increases the risk of developing diabetes (Current Atherosclerosis Reports, Jan. 2015). Research has shown that there is a 10 to 12 percent increased incidence of new-onset type 2 diabetes in statin takers. Cinnamon has been used for generation to balance blood sugar levels when combined with CoQ10 this protective formula will help support a healthy blood sugar balance.
What Affects Body's Levels of CoQ10?
- Increased metabolic demand
- stress including oxidative stress
- insufficient low dietary CoQ10 intake
- shortage of factors required for bio synthesis and ubiquinol conversion
- potential effects from illness and disease
- age related changes in your genes
- statin usage
Each capsule contains 120mgs CoQ-10 ubiquinol and Cinnamon Bark 1000mgs ( from 250mgs 4:1 extract) one capsule daily will provide an ideal optimum dose for those wanting to keep a healthy mitochondrial system, for anyone over the age of 50 years ,who take statins or are pre-diabetic.
