Anti-Aging Spotlight: CoQ10
7 min read.
Promote healthy aging at the cellular level with antioxidant Coenzyme Q10.
Coenzyme Q10 is actually produced by the body, but like everything else, that production declines with age. Which is why it's important to supplement that loss with foods and high quality supplements.
ICoQ10 is a potent antioxidant that also helps to battle the deteriorating effects of oxidative stress, as well as inflammation. It’s even been shown to slow or stop age-related symptoms and diseases and protect cells from damage, along with playing an integral role in the metabolism.
Keep reading for the powerful affects of this anti-aging powerhouse.
Anti-Aging Benefits of CoQ10
Youthful Cellular Energy – CoQ10 declines with age and is essential to producing ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the universal energy currency of our cells. It also helps recycle antioxidants to protect from the effects of free radicals.
Heart Health – While CoQ10 is perhaps most known for cardiovascular support, it can also support healthy function of the respiratory and nervous systems, as well as the brain and eyes. Pro tip: to promote oral health, massage into the gums.
Alleviate Headaches - CoQ10 has also been studied as a preventive treatment for migraine headaches, though it may take several months to work.
Graceful Aging - CoQ10 levels decline steeply with age and are typically accompanied by an increase in free-radical activity. By supporting the body's antioxidant defenses against such bio-deviants, CoQ10 may aid in healthier, more graceful aging.
How much CoQ10 should you take?
There is no established ideal dose of CoQ10. Studies have used doses of CoQ10 ranging from 50 milligrams to 1,200 milligrams in adults, sometimes split into several doses over the course of a day. A typical daily dose is 100 milligrams to 200 milligrams. Follow the instructions on the bottle or get advice from your doctor or a dietitian. Keep in mind that different supplement brands might have different ingredients and strengths.
One of our favorites, is fast absorbing vCoQ10 supplements is from Quicksilver Scientific. You just take 2 pumps by mouth twice daily. Hold in mouth 30 seconds before swallowing, and you're good to go!
Powerful Antioxidant Support
Improve the quality of your life and energy levels with the support of CoQ10
IN SHORT: Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is the only fat-soluble antioxidant produced naturally inside our bodies. It is core to cellular energy production, supports healthy cell mitochondrion membranes, and aids healthy heart and blood vessel function. It may also act as a longevity molecule, facilitating graceful aging. Unfortunately, exposure to environmental stressors depletes CoQ10 at the cellular level. However the good news is that supplemental Coq10 can help address this problem, providing powerful antioxidant support for the while body!
