Seems like everywhere I turn these days, I'm hearing more about the dietary supplement Co Q-10. As we age, the Co Q-10 in our bodies decreases. We need to replenish it, as Co Q-10 is a powerful antioxidant that helps to keep the heart healthy, decreases blood pressure, fortifies the immune system, and contributes to increased energy. Several medications, including Statin drugs, can deplete Co Q-10, and it should be replaced as it is vital to cells, tissues, and body organs.
I take 100 mg daily in the form of a softgel, though the instructions say you can take it 3 times daily, with meals. However, since CO Q-10 is rather expensive, this would be prohibitive for most people. (Many doctors and nutritionists suggest 100 mg daily.) It has an unconditional guarantee in the form of refund or replacement.
Spring Valley Co Q-10 contains no sugar, gluten, wheat, milk, lactose, artificial colors, sodium, or preservatives. This formula also contains 100% Vitamin E (30 IU) and 100 mg of L-Carnitine.
A friend of mine said that he was able to come off his cholesterol medicine after adding Co Q-10 to his daily regimen. I make no claims about that, but it is certainly worth a try to incorporate natural remedies whenever possible. I do know that my blood pressure is better since taking Co Q-10, and I feel that I have more energy. Knowing that it contributes to cardiovascular health also helps to put my mind at ease. Like all supplements, it should be used along with a nutritious diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.
