If you’re one taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, then you probably have a deficiency in the spark needed to ignite your fuel and turn it into energy—the powerful antioxidant known as coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).
This amazing antioxidant, discovered in 1957, provides 95 percent of your body’s energy! And hundreds of scientists have proven that the more CoQ10 you have the more energetic your body will be.
When you’re young, your liver produces CoQ10 in the amounts necessary to give strength to the muscles and cells of your body. CoQ10 can help:
#Protect your skin and hair by replacing cell tissue.
#Keep your vision sharp.
#Flush your arteries of the gunk that can cause life-threatening heart disasters.
#Protect your essential organs like the liver and kidneys.
But as you get older, especially when you hit your 40s, your levels of CoQ10 decrease to the point of being inadequate to sustain the energy levels you need.
Another cause in the decrease of needed CoQ10 levels in your body is the use of statin drugs such as Lipitor® and Zocor®, used to lower cholesterol.
Even though CoQ10 is important for the overall health of your body, it has been proven to be of the utmost importance to the health of your heart. Major studies directed by leading scientists and reported in highly respected medical journals continue to prove that CoQ10 is essential in maintaining healthy blood pressure and regulating the rhythm of the heart.
So, what do you do if your fatigue levels are high… your natural CoQ10 levels are low… and your health is being compromised? Try increasing the foods in your diet that contain higher levels of CoQ10 such as soybeans, sesame oil, sardines, mackerel, peanuts and sesame seeds, just to name a few.
