Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinol 10, was discovered in the 1950’s as a naturally-occurring compound produced by the human body that is responsible for basic cell function and disease prevention.
In addition to maintaining basic cell function, CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant, which is responsible for fighting free radicals in the body. Free radicals cause physical disease and premature aging by destroying living cells.
As the body ages, natural CoQ10 levels decrease by as much as seventy percent. Supplementation of this natural enzyme is recommended for patients with heart-related conditions such as:
Congestive Heart Failure, arrhythmia, heart attack, angina, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, mitral valve prolapse, coronary heart disease.
The antioxidant power of CoQ10 also makes it an excellent natural anti-aging solution. Free radicals are destroyed, energy and vitality is increased and cells are brought back to a stable, healthy condition that might have been lost during mid-life.
