CoQ10 for Cellular Aging and Staying Alive

Posted by Margy Squires on 5/24/2019 to Anti-Aging
The secret to anti-aging? Keep your cells alive and you live longer. It’s that simple. Two ways to help your cells stay alive is with proper nutrition and protecting them from oxidative (free radical) damage. The antioxidant supplement coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) does both. Plus CoQ10 is ubiquitous to every cell in your body for good reason – your cells use it for energy to function. That’s why it’s the number one nutrient for your heart, the muscle that runs 24/7. Now studies show CoQ10 benefits not only a healthier inside but also a healthier outside – by protecting and anti-aging your skin.

Posted by on 7/19/2018 to Anti-Aging
While the thought of cancer is a scary one, ignoring the risk is hazardous to your health! Best to take the wise advice of applying an ounce of prevention as liver cancer is preventable says Dr. Xu, one of the study authors of this latest health concern.  
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raised the red flag on liver cancer in their July 2018 published review. Their report shows an alarming increase in liver cancer mortality from 2000 to 2016. Men had a 43% increase, women 40%. For men, their risk still remains higher as statistically their overall numbers are 2 to 2.5 times that of women.

CoQ10 Regulates Serotonin in Fibromyalgia

Posted by Margy on 4/18/2018 to Antioxidants
Over the past several years, TyH has been reporting on Dr. Cordero's studies with CoQ10 and fibromyalgia (FM) which lowers oxidative stress and improves energy. Another interesting study (which also includes Cordero) shows CoQ10 helps regulate serotonin, found low in FM, which may in turn help pain in this amplified pain condition.

The small clinical trial reports that disturbances in serotonin function impact the classic FM symptoms as this important chemical modulates pain, fatigue, sleep, cognition and mood. The reason why this disturbance happens or how it plays in the pathology or disease process of FM is not agreed on by researchers. However, restoring normal function could potentially help FM patients. Measured comparison of FM patients to healthy controls showed "marked" lower levels of both CoQ10 and serotonin in blood platelets. Previous research suggests platelets are good models of serotonin levels as found in nerve cells.
