Are you full of "vim, vigor and vitality"...or has the lack of Coenzyme Q10 benefits caused your energy level to resemble the following poem?
"How do I know my youth is all spent?
My get-up-and-go has got up and went!"
Has your thinking become fuzzy or does your forgetter keep outwitting your memory?
Do you have muscle pain from unknown causes?

Just as a gasoline engine can't work without spark plugs, the human body can't work without Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) benefits. And statin drugs can keep your CoQ10 energy fuel supply "on empty."
Stephen Sinatra, M.D., a highly regarded heart surgeon says,
"A CoQ10 deficiency affects your heart as profoundly as a calcium deficiency would affect your bones."
CoQ10 is found in most cells, with especially high concentration in the heart.
The heart never sleeps and it never takes a vacation. It beats more than 100,000 times each day, so it is very dependent on the energy generating power of CoQ10.
As an antioxidant, CoQ10 helps protect proteins and mitochondrial DNA from oxidative damage and, consequently, supports healthy heart, brain, and joints.
Although the body can typically make the Coenzyme Q10 it needs for optimal health, use of statin drugs such as Lipitor, Crestor and their generic counterparts can deplete CoQ10 levels in the body. Our body also makes less Coq10 as we age.
It comes real close. It's the nutrient that fuels your heart. Coenzyme Q10 supplements are cellular energy boosters and is an essential part of your body's energy-producing process.
After we reach age 40 almost a third of the Coenzyme Q10 benefits have been depleted. This is a major factor in the age related risk of a heart attack.
You may have heard of CoQ10 before, but not fully understand why this nutrient is so critical to your heart, brain and muscles.
When your heart has the high levels of CoQ10 it needs, it works like a charm. But when levels get low, your heart strains to do its job, and ultimately your entire body suffers.
Coenzyme Q10 benefits are found throughout your body, but the greatest concentration is in your heart muscle because it beats 24 hours per day, seven days per week...and hopefully for a long, long time.
I would absolutely not be without this essential nutrient. Nothing is too good for my heart and brain.
Most of the ordinary CoQ10 that you may be familiar with is imported from China and is not of the same quality or purity that you will find in the USA.
Since nutritional products are not regulated by FDA there can be surprisingly large differences in quality.
Consumer Lab, an independent testing facility that evaluates nutritional products, found in one study that only four of the seven products evaluated contained the amount of nutrients that they showed on the label. "Let the buyer beware."
I personally like to stick with products that use the same formulation used in the clinical studies.
Dr. Sears, MD is a board-certified physician with over 20 years experience transforming the lives of over 20,000 patients in 23 countries.
Dr. Sears is the author of over 6 books and 500 articles published in the fields of alternative medicine, anti-aging and nutritional supplementation. Following are his comments:
"Many people are suffering from the lack of one single nutrient: Coenzyme Q10.
"It might shock you to find out that government health advisors don't even consider it "essential", yet it's impossible to live without Coenzyme Q10 and the benefits it provides.
"If you don't have enough of it, you leave yourself open to muscle weakness, seizures, heart failure and cancer. In fact, CoQ10 is the primary source of energy for the immune cells that get suppressed by cancer.
"CoQ10 also works wonders to energize the heart, reduce oxidized fat in blood vessels, and destroy free radicals lurking in the heart.
"And did you know that the majority of people with heart disease are deficient in CoQ10?
And The best thing is that a new study confirms that this vitality booster can actually double your energy!
Because CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient, take it with fat like cod liver oil or olive oil to make sure it's absorbed well.
At his New England Heart & Longevity Center in Manchester, CT, Dr. Sinatra integrates conventional medical treatments for heart disease with complementary nutritional, anti-aging and psychological therapies that help heal the heart.
He is uniquely qualified to give advice on nutritional supplements and the heart. Dr. Sinatra is one of the few medical doctors who formulates his own vitamins.
Dr. Sinatra says, "If you are on a statin drug, or short on energy you need CoQ10!"
I couldn't have said it any better.
