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.

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.

Peoole in Pre Diabetes BoxNO sugar coating here...
Someone once told me that you are responsible for what you know. Then who is responsible for what you don’t know? As I researched for the article Pre-Diabetes, Get out of the Box, I found studies dating back to 1976 on the relationship between CoQ10 status and glycemic control. Whoa, say what? Other abstracts pointed out some statin takers went on to develop diabetes. How transparent does the evidence have to be? It’s well known that statins block CoQ10! How many people put on statins were advised of that risk factor, especially since you need CoQ10 for muscle energy? And isn't the heart the most important muscle in your body?
