Lightbulb CoQ10 for Health and Longevity

Importance of CoQ10 for aging and health...

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally occurring oil-soluble, vitamin-like substance which is absolutely essential for optimum health and longevity. Also known as ubiquinone, CoQ10 is found in virtually every cell in the body, primarily in cellular mitochondria, and it is a vital component of the electron transport chain which generates 95 percent of the body's energy via adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

CoQ10 is vital for the heart

Organs with the highest energy requirements - such as the heart, liver, and kidney - have the highest concentrations of CoQ10. Adequate CoQ10 is particularly vital for the cardiovascular health. It is thus ironic as well as tragic that statin drugs which are prescribed for reputed heart benefits lower CoQ10 production by up to 40%. For more information statin drug dangers, see:


As we age, we lose much of our supply of CoQ10, particularly in the heart. At the age of 80, for example, CoQ10 levels are cut by more than half. CoQ10 benefits and protects the heart in many ways, including helping lowering high blood pressure and preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. The effectiveness and safety of CoQ10 in the treatment of congestive heart failure has been well established by numerous studies. One recent study also found that CoQ10 can improve survival after a cardiac arrest.

Interesting, its just a pity that Dr's wont mention or prescrbibe that to their patients, instead of statins.
