The Many Health Benefits of Coenzyme Q10

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential component of cellular metabolism and numerous biochemical reactions within the body. Not only does it serve as a powerful antioxidant which protects the body from damage caused by harmful free radicals, it is also required in order to produce energy for each cell.

Science has shown that levels of CoQ10 decrease gradually as we age, affecting in particular the cardiovascular system (the highest concentrations of energy-producing CoQ10 are found in the muscle of the heart). Moreover, CoQ10 is also commonly depleted when taking statin drugs; this may result in experiencing increased negative side effects. As a result, CoQ10 should be considered a fundamental supplement to optimize healthy aging.

Healthy Planet’s new brand of CoQ10 contains a highly absorbable form of CoQ10, shown to improve the symptoms of conditions such as: Hypertension (HBP); Diabetes mellitus; Congestive heart failure; Fertility; Migraines and headaches; Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD); Chronic fatigue syndrome; Cancer – adjunctive treatment; Athletic recovery.

Now, the Healthy Planet has introduced its own brand of CoQ10 which is formulated to optimize wellness by complementing a healthy diet and increasing quality of life. It is made using a natural fermentation process and does not contain artificial preservatives, flavours, sweeteners, dairy, corn, eggs, nuts, starch, or wheat. Overall health benefits include:
