I want to officially kickoff my new website by talking about something that I think of as one of the most important substances in the human body, Coenzyme Q10. For those who don’t know, Coenzyme Q10 is sort of the spark of youthfulness. It’s naturally produced, can be found in every cell in the body and is both a nutrient and antioxidant. When you’re young your cells practically brim with Coenzyme Q10 but as you age the levels drop dramatically, and with it so does your joie de vivre.
At about 35 or 40 your levels of Coenzyme Q10 start to take their steep fall but, worse, your body starts to lose the ability to absorb CoQ10. But there is a remedy, Ubiquinol. I have been taking Ubiquinol for more than twenty years and I swear by it. I started taking it for my teeth originally. Ubiquinol is great for oral health, it reduces the depth of gum pockets, limits tooth mobility, bleeding, redness and infection, things I had struggled with for years. Then I discovered there was a lot more to it, on top of everything else it enhances the immune system and strengthens the body’s ability to fight off bacteria. I credit it with not only keeping my mouth young and healthy but fueling my every cell in my body like the tiny powerhouses.
I take 100 units, four times a day with a meal or some organic peanut butter. As with everything I put in my body I have done a lot of research on Ubiquinol and think
One more thing on Ubiquinol. Studies suggest that taking statins can deplete your natural levels of CoQ10, it’s so important that if you are on statins (something we’ll talk about later on) you should absolutely be using Ubiquinol.
I’ve been ordering my Ubiquinol from Life Extension for years, they are one of the most reputable and trustworthy companies around. Below you can find a link to their Super Ubiquinol CoQ10, which I absolutely swear by.
