When we discuss cardiovascular health, we think of eating a heart healthy diet full of healthy grains, healthy fats, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. We may also think of a daily exercise regimen that will get our heart rate up for at least 20 minutes.
But did you know …
At the top of the list for nourishing the cardiovascular system is a vital vitamin-like nutrient that helps produce energy that allows our bodies to function called Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10. CoQ10 is particularly important for the heart muscle, as it provides the necessary energy to pump blood and nutrients through the body. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant also and protects cholesterol from harmful oxidation, maintains healthy blood pressure and fights free radical damage to arteries and blood vessels. Our cells need it for proper growth and maintenance making CoQ10 such an essential nutrient for cell regeneration and supporting a long, healthy life.
Our body’s CoQ10 levels decline naturally as we age. By age 40, our CoQ10 levels are half what they were at 20. Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can also impair the body’s ability to product CoQ10. Supplementing with CoQ10 is one of the most important things you can do to protect your heart health.
Many CoQ10 products on the market today are oil soluble, making them difficult to absorb. Achieving the optimal benefits of CoQ10 is not a matter of how much you take, but of how much CoQ10 is absorbed.
