CoQ10 Reduces Heart Attack Risks

CoQ10 Lowers Risk of A Heart Attack

Gene Millen, Author - Revised 4/27/15

Are you full of "vim, vigor and vitality"...or has lack of Co Q10 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!

Is your heart as strong and vital as it could be?

Has your thinking become fuzzy or does your forgetter keep outwitting your memory?

Do you have muscle pain from unknown causes?

Are you taking a statin drug such as Lipitor, Crestor, Vytorin or one of their generic cousins?

Just as a gasoline engine can't work without spark plugs, the human body can't work without CoQ10.

Stephen Sinatra, M.D., a highly regarded heart surgeon and author of several books on heart health 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 CoQ10 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.

Is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) a "miracle" nutrient?

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 CoQ10 in the heart has gone! 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.

CoQ10 is 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.

All Coenzyme Q10 is not created equal

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. Al says Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) works wonders for the heart:

Dr. Al Sears, integretated medicine physician

Newsmax Health reported in 2013 that scientists at Tulane University looked at 14 randomized, controlled trials involving supplementation with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a vitamin-like substance that concentrates in muscle tissue.

Subjects who took 60 to 300 mg per day for up to seven months were found to have an increased heart ejection fraction of 4 percent compared to those who did not take the supplement.
Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart muscle becomes weakened to the point that it is not able to pump blood throughout the body. Unfortunately, once a diagnosis is made, there is a 50 percent increased risk of mortality over the next five years.
The highest concentration of CoQ10 occurs in the heart muscle. Studies show a direct correlation between low CoQ10 levels and heart failure. Although this study did not find a vast improvement with CoQ10, any reversal of ejection fraction in CHF is go
The increased rate of congestive heart failure is due to the use of statin medications, which poison the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, and decreases the body's production of CoQ10.

Another strong voice for CoQ10 is Dr. Stephen Sinatra.

Dr. SinatraAt 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!

You and your heart will be glad you did!
