More than just lyrics, in biological terms, our hearts contain the most metabolically active cells, rich in mitochondria, churning out energy molecules, all day and night. Since they’re so “busy” they’re very hungry, needing good food to perform at their best.
That means food rich in Coenzyme Q10:
- Organic beef (grass fed) and chicken
- Cruciferous veggys like broccoli
If your mitochondria are performing well, you will too, feeling good, strong, alert, all those things associated with vibrant health.
What exactly does CoQ10 do for you?
- Helps your mitochondria function more efficiently as they produce energy from sugar, fat and oxygen.
- Protects your mitochondrial membranes from the everyday wear and tear caused by oxidation.
- Encourages new mitochondrial generation.
- Helps prevent or mitigate cardio vascular disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, autism and ALS.
While your body has the ability to generate CoQ10 within, unfortunately, this capability lessens as you age. To make matters worse, if you’re on any kind of statins, your mitochondria are even further compromised.
Statins are the enemy! CoQ10 helps neutralize their damage.
While a quarter of Americans are prescribed statins, supposedly to protect their health, the unfortunate side effects from taking these drugs include bad things like depleting your stores of CoQ10, increasing your risk of heart disease and interfering with your liver’s ability to produce ketones.
What are ketones?
Ketones are produced when your body dips into its fat stores to burn energy, instead of burning sugar. Burning fat is a much cleaner fuel source causing less free radical damage. We’re not talking about diabetic ketoacidosis, a dangerous condition, but healthy energy production from well-nourished mitochondria.
Why not adopt good habits that pay rich health dividends? Dr. Dave’s Best CoQ10, (ubiquinol, the reduced form) helps optimize your mitochondrial function, setting you up for a vibrant future.
