5 Signs Your Body Needs More CoQ10


5 Signs Your Body Needs More CoQ10 While the popularity of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) has been on the rise in recent years, many people still may not be getting enough of this important nutrient.
A vitamin-like substance, which is found in every single cell in the human body, CoQ10 supports cell growth and maintenance and even functions as an antioxidant. Small amounts of CoQ10 are naturally present in some foods and help to digest food and perform body processes. Consider the five amazing benefits of CoQ10 below, and ask yourself if you’re getting enough of this critical supplement.

1. Your Energy is Low

A wealth of anecdotal and scientific evidence reveals that people begin to feel noticeably more energetic when taking CoQ10. In fact, in as little as two to three weeks, many people start to feel the benefits. CoQ10 supplementation has been shown to benefit patients with chronic problems of fatigue, helping with depression and migraines in the process. Better energy leads to an all-around improvement in the quality of life, as we’re able to live more fully.

Poor Vision Is NOT Inevitable! Landmark Studies Reveal the Vital Nutrients Your Eyes Crave

Can you even imagine your daily routine without your ability to see well? According to the National Eye Institute, nearly 40 million American adults suffer from serious vision impairment and eye problems.

But deteriorating vision is not an inevitable part of aging! There is one simple thing you can do to help maintain sharp, crystal clear vision into your 60s, 70s, 80s and even beyond.

2. You’re on a Statin Drug

While statins are designed to block an enzyme that promotes the synthesis of cholesterol, these medications also negatively impact CoQ10 production as a result. As a matter of fact, many physicians believe that it is absolutely vital for everyone who is taking a statin to regularly take CoQ10 supplements. Doing so will help counteract the depletion of this nutrient that occurs with regular statin use, and protects the body from damage and aging.

3. You’re Over 40

CoQ10 occurs naturally in the body, however, as we age we tend to produce less and less of this vital substance, making supplements a valuable option for many people. In fact, as early as age 30 the body’s natural levels of CoQ10 start to become lower, with levels potentially becoming too low for optimal heart function by age 50, and may even accelerate aging by the time we hit age 70. On the other hand, people with adequate levels of CoQ10 may actually be able to slow the aging process, maintaining proper cell and body functions in the process.

4. Your Whole Body Just Feels “Off”

Ideal levels of CoQ10 not only protect against diseases and provide better energy, they enable the entire body to function more effectively, on both a cellular level and a body systems level. Research is ongoing, but some studies have linked CoQ10 to better muscle and exercise performance, with improved aerobic capacity, and quicker recovery times. Other studies have cited CoQ10 as supporting male fertility and sperm health, and it has even been identified as an immune system booster by the National Cancer Institute.

5. Your Health Stats Suddenly Go Awry

Were you surprised by the results of recent lab work? You may want to address the matter with your physician and discuss the possibility of taking more CoQ10. One of the most powerful and important features of CoQ10 is its ability to serve as protection against a multitude of chronic diseases. An abundance of CoQ10 has been associated with reduced rates of everything from hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, and inflammation to even cancer and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. When all of these benefits are coupled with its ability to slow the aging process, it’s easy to see why CoQ10 is so highly recommended.

Things to Consider

If you think that your body may not have a sufficient supply of CoQ10, there are a number of supplements that you can take to alleviate this problem. In fact, many physicians strongly recommend CoQ10 supplements for people of middle age and older, especially if they are taking a statin. However, just because these types of supplements are widely available, does not mean that they are all of the same quality. In fact, the quality of CoQ10 supplements vary greatly, and having a high quality version may make a huge difference in its effect. Talk to your physician regarding CoQ10, and make sure you know about the best available forms of CoQ10 in supplements.

    I ordered the COQ10 started taking it felt so much better thought it was all in my head, so 2 day I gave my husband the pill and ask for results at the end of the day. He said what’s in that pill, I feel wonderful so much energy. This was only after the second day. No more naps for me and the 2 o’clock let down. This is truly a miracle pill. Won’t go with out it.

    “A lack of CoQ10 has been associated with lower rates of everything from hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, and inflammation to even cancer and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.” Don’t you mean higher rates?

  3. Deborah Sauter says:

    Derek- Can you re-read #3 and see that it is not properly written. You/re saying low levels of COG10 lead to less hypertension, heart attacks etc. This is the opposite of what you want to establish.

    This is the second time I’ve seen this incorrect version in this newsletter!

    CoQ10: Does it help 80 year old females with brain
    improvement? Wife says she hears peoplr talking to her. No one is in our house. Give me some ways to help her mind improve. Thanks

    • Gloria Cole says:

      I am 76 and i hear people talking at 3 AM. I investigated and found out it is the two young people who drive a truck and are heading out about that time of day. They are talking loudly to hear each other over the trucks warming up for their trips. Maybe she needs some noise cancelling ear phones.

    I have been taking 150mgms daily of COQ10 for several years- I take it in the morning before or with breakfast,. I still feel constantly exhausted- and very easily tired – can you advise me as to the best does and or the maximum doseage recommended., I take a good list of other vitamins and nutrients.,
    I am on 5mgms Norvasc daily for blood pressure
    and Lipitor 10mg daily for cholesterol that has remained about 5.00 for about ten years on that.
    My other blood tests all look very good.,

      have u checked the side effects of your medication? also if u are taking an excessive amount of some vits or minerals? some vits in excess can have serious side effects. hope this helps.

    • Gary Mercatante says:

      Hello, I just noticed your comment today. My wife, God rest her soul, was on Norvasc a couple of times while she was still alive. AWFUL stuff! It would cause violent coughing “jags” during the night that would strike out of nowhere. Within 24-48 hours after coming off of that stuff, all her symptoms disappeared. She also ran the gamut of all of the “tors” for cholesterol. Those meds naturally drain you of COQ10; they are notorious for draining you of that, hence your “get up and go, gets up and leaves”. If you need to stay on these meds, it is possible you need to bump up your COQ10 to get results.

    What is a good brand to take? I’ve been buying mine at Costco. How much so I need? I’m taking 100 mg. My doctor isn’t very helpful. He didn’t tell me to take it. I found out myself online.

    • Segen Tekle says:

      Coq10 plays an important role in energy production and heart health. Generally, experts suggest taking anywhere from 200-400 mg of coq10 daily.
