Co-enzyme Q10 is quite a big scientific name.
The first time I heard that, I felt it sounded very medical and deep. Try to repeat it: why don’t you take co-enzyme q10? I was like: reallyyyy? Wow, this must be some supplement.
Then, I found out it is an anti-oxidant.
What’s an anti-oxidant?
According to Lendsy Getz: “In simple terms, an antioxidant is a chemical compound that protects cells against the effects of free radicals (molecules produced when the body breaks down food or is exposed to pollutants such as tobacco smoke or radiation). Free radicals can damage cells and may play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other medical conditions; hence, researchers are trying to determine exactly which antioxidants are effective against them.”
To simplify even more, co-enzyme q10 is like the fuel in the engine of a car. It is a nutrient that triggers the mitochondria (powerhouse of the cell) to produce energy from the food we eat, helping our bodies to move and perform in a healthy matter. In other words, if you’re not operating well, that means your engine is not working properly. Your fuel, which comes as result of your food, is not being properly converted, or, just like a car engine, perhaps you are not using the right type of fuel. Maybe you are using diesel, while you need super or premium unleaded instead.
Now, we will use that lovely scientific lingo that is so dear to scientists and those sceptics of everything alternative…
What is Co-enzyme Q10?
Co-enzyme Q10 is not just a vitamin-like chemical. It is something more important for the human body: it is a food for your heart, liver, kidney, pancreas, and blood vessels. A shortage of co-enzyme Q10 can cause and exacerbate a number of problems, including cardiovascular diseases. The heart is especially sensitive to a lack of co-enzyme Q10, because the heart’s metabolism is especially active. Co-enzyme Q10 can stabilize the cell membranes of heart muscles, which will work inappropriately without it.
Co-enzyme Q10 is usually produced by the human organism in the necessary amounts. However, after 20 years of age, production declines, and the more you age, the more your production of co-enzyme q10 declines. That’s in addition to external factors that can cause this decline, such as stress, disease, pollution, nutrition, and so on.
As a nutritional supplement, co-enzyme Q10 is part of every cell in the human organism. This enzyme can be either ubiquinone and ubiquinol. Initially, each all co-enzyme Q10 is ubiquinone, some of which after certain transmissions and strengthening of several elements becomes ubiquinol.
Several diseases boost their development when the level of co-enzyme Q10 decreases, namely:
- Alzheimer’s disease, which is characterized by memory issues and the progression of dementia.
- Heart diseases, such as those related to congestive heart failure and other supportive cardiovascular diseases people may have.
- Hypertension, which is related to higher blood pressure, as co-enzyme Q10 lowers blood pressure in the human organism.
- Side effects of statin, an issue related to muscles.
- Gum disease, related to gum tissue.
In summary, we need to take care of our vehicle (body), just like we take good care of our cars. In the end, your body is the most important form of transportation in life and love.
Always attune to the message your engine is sending you, and heal it accordingly…
