Surprising Benefits Of CoQ10 Supplementation

Surprising Benefits of CoQ10 Supplements- CoQ10, Tart Cherry, & BCAA in Jar - Post Activity Gummy

What is CoQ10?

Coenzyme Q10 is present in almost every cell in your body. It is a powerful antioxidant that fights off oxidative stress and has several health benefits. In theory, healthy people naturally generate enough CoQ10 to meet all cellular needs. Increased age and some medical conditions can cause CoQ10 production to drop. Likewise, a poor diet and/or changing bioenergetics will change overall levels of CoQ10.

HDL Blood Test & LDL Blood Test

Reduces Cardiovascular Disease

Studies suggest that supplementation of CoQ10 can significantly increase HDL-C and ApoA1 levels even with statin use. HDL is high-density lipoprotein; this is the so-called ‘good’ cholesterol. Apolipoprotein A1 is a component of high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Inflammation markers are also lowered for many on CoQ10. Low CoQ10 levels have also been associated with a higher risk of tissue damage to the heart during a heart attack and to the brain during a stroke.

Improves Statin-Related Muscle Symptoms

Although statin medications are widely used in an effort to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, muscle aches and weakness are significant and painful side effects of their use. In a 2014 study (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4226312/), CoQ10 supplementation alongside statin use has shown to reduce these muscle pain side effects in 75% of participants when taken twice a day for 30 days.

Reduce Heart Failure Mortality

CoQ10 has been found to improve the mortality rate in those with severe heart failure. In the Q-SYMBIO study, patients were tracked for 2 years. For those that received CoQ10, the risk of dying from all causes during this time period was reduced by half when compared to the placebo group. Patients that received CoQ10 during the study had lower cardiovascular mortality and fewer instances of hospitalizations due to heart failure. One biomarker for overall wellness is the total cholesterol to HDL levels and CoQ10 can improve that ratio.
