CoQ10 & Benefits to your Health

Coenzyme Q10, known also as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, or just CoQ10 is a substance physically generated in the human body and its main purpose is to increase the production of cellular energy.
Actually is responsible for almost 95% of the energy production in human body. In this article we will provide a brief overview of the CoQ10 benefits to health and CoQ10 weight loss impact.

The highest concentration of CoQ10 is found in the human organs with the highest energy requirements, such as liver, heart and kidney and when it is present at normal levels, provides these vital organs with the proper cellular energy they need for having a smooth funtion and keeping our body in a healthy condition.

Due to its energy carrier nature, CoQ10 is an excellent antioxidant, which prevents effectively the initiation and propagation of lipid and protein oxidation but also regenerates other antioxidants such as Vitamin E.  As a supplement it protects us from several diseases such as:

  • Congestive Heart Failures
  • Obesity 
  • Periodontal Disease, 
  • Cancer (especially breast type)
  • Hypertension, 
  • Migraine
and others.
Since it can speed up the metabolism of fats, is one of the best supplements to help overweight people loss their excess weight.
Its levels decline normally with age, peak level is around the age of 20 years and drops significantly after 40. So supplements assist to maintain the proper levels of CoQ10 in order to reduce the aging effects in our vital organs and skin and to enhance the slower metabolism, which is responsible for us not being able to lose easily weight while getting older.
It is contained mostly at meat and fish and particularly at the organs of high concentration levels, such as heart and liver. Although a daily dosage of 30-60mg is enough to maintain a healthy status, in case of treatment against diseases, a considerably higher dosage can be used (up to 200mg daily) without any certain side-effect.
