Coenzyme (CoQ10)


Helps Prevent Congestive Heart Failure, Strokes, Alzheimer’s, even Parkinson’s!

[dropcap]D[/dropcap]r. James Balch, noted specialist in alternative medicine and author of Prescription for Nutritional Healing, steadfastly maintains the above is true. He personally takes the right amount to help prevent not only strokes, but also Alzheimer’s.

Why is this nutrient so vital? Because it helps to move electrons around to create ATP. ATP fuels muscle contraction (especially important for your heart— just think, it beats, on average 72 times a minute— that’s over 100,000 times each and every day! Imagine the amount of energy it takes to do that!) …ignites the production of billions of immune cells… energized liver and kidney cells… propels the repair of worn out parts and damaged cells… and more.

What is this vital nutrient? Coenzyme Q10 (Coq10). Without CoQ10, there is no ATP. Without ATP, your body would simply stop functioning. CoQ10 is also vital for cell respiration (the cells’ ability to “breathe”). This is also especially important for your heart. Without oxygen your heart cells die, your cardiac muscle is destroyed, and the muscle fibers are replaced with nonfunctional connective tissue. With enough of this damage, your heart will fail. The more CoQ10 available to heart muscle cells, the longer they can “hold their breath.” When circulation is restored and cells are re-oxygenated, a salvage process occurs and damage is circumvented. So, between CoQ10’s effect on the production of ATP, which keeps your heart beating, and its effect on cell respiration, which helps to prevent heart damage, you can understand why it’s vital to heart health!

What do the experts say? Dr. Stephen Sinatra, M.D., Founder and Director of the New England Heart Center in Manchester, Connecticut, Publisher of HeartSense, three -time recipient of the A.M.A.’s Physician Recognition Award, and one of America’s leading cardiologists, maintains that CoQ10 floods your body with youthful energy and health protection. In fact, he states: “Nothing I’ve ever found comes close to CoQ10’s success rate… If I could recommend only one health secret, this (CoQ10) is it!”

Dr. David Williams, writing in Alternatives for the Health-Conscious Individual, says “I’ve been recommending CoQ10 for decades… for individuals with any type of heart or liver problem The list of benefits attributed to this one nutrient is just like the Energizer Bunny— it goes on, and on, and on.”

Noted physician Dr. Sherry Rogers, writing in Total Health in Today’s World, states”…I believe CoQ10 should be part of the nutritional regimen for anyone with not only heart disease, but chronic fatigue, cancer, depression or gum disease (those with other symptoms can benefit as well).”
CoQ10 is vital for more than just your heart!

Studies indicating that CoQ10 can significantly help patients with breast cancer, periodontal disease, Parkinson’s disease, and blood sugar problems. And according to Dr. Sinatra, CoQ10 may help regulate blood pressure, as well as fight cancer.

Why is supplementation so important?
CoQ10 cannot be had adequately from food. Therefore without supplementation, cells become energy starved. This is especially important for people who are taking statin drugs (drugs like Zocor, Simvastatin, Lipitor or Pravachol that help lower cholesterol): Statin drugs block the synthesis of CoQ10. The body doesn’t make it, so cells can’t use it. Supplementation is not merely desirable, but necessary.

Keep in mind, CoQ10 is not easily absorbed by the body. That’s why it’s essential to get it in a Q-Melt form. Q-Melt chewable formulations suspend the CoQ10 in a small amount of oil. This delivery system provides 100% dissolution and is up to 300% more effective than other forms of CoQ10. Thus the Q-Melt form is more potent. This has all the benefits of the capsule form, with that additional benefit of being even more bioavailable, and being absorbed even more quickly. That’s why you should only try Vitaline CoQ10 chewable tabs to supplement with CoQ10.
