The CoQ10, It’s a fat soluble already an naturally occurring enzyme syntheized by the liver but the amount produced is used before before it can reach a homeostasis. It’s applications involve lowering blood pressure, optimizing cerebral blowflow, powerful anti-oxizidation properties also lowers the levels of blood glucose.
The CoQ10 input and type II diabetes, type II diabetes is becoming ever more prevalent approx 1/10 American adults, 1/4 seniors it’s also not a condition thats well regulated or treated on a consistent basis. Type II diabetes has killed 1.5 Million people in 2012 and projected to claim 3 Million lives a year by 2030. 1/3 people are pre-diabetic and probably have no idea that they are because Americans are chronically deficient in CoQ10. This is equates to low cellular energy production and a surplus of glucose relaxing around.
Starting with one of the more unique traits about CoQ10 are it’s Nootropic influences, one being an already when supplemented enough you’re providing the Mitochondria within the neurons what it needs to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), we begin to succomb to Mitocondrial deficits as we age, which results in lower cellular energy production, brain fog, recall and over all poor cognitation. If the Midocondrial deficit is severe enough it will also lead to more complicated neurodeneratives like Alzheimer’s Diease, Dementia and Lou Gehrigs disease. The Mitochondria is the source of life and death for the Neuron, the supernumerary about of CoQ10 will suppress synaptic plasticity deficit by supercharging the mitochondria. We have more on (ATP) in a earlier post: Ketosis, a true human superpower. #Biohacking #Psychology
To get the most of CoQ10 for cellular energy production will having it be converted into it’s more active cousin Ubiqinol, which makes a huge difference in the nutrients ability to through the blood and absorbed through cells. Unfortunately as we get older this process becomes increasingly difficult, But unlike supplemental CoQ10 you can also supplement Ubiqinol which is already more powerful antioxidant because of it’s additional electrons this is vital because the additional electrons are used to neutralized free radicals. Now free radicals are harmful because they scavage and roam then steal electrons wherever they are located including DNA, lipids and proteins. When free radicals remove the electron it oxidizes the molecule leading to oxidative stress will damage and lead to long term complications. The lending of an electron from the Ubiqinol subdues the free radical that would have entailed metabolic problems.
The input of CoQ10 have shown some interesting effects of its application during migraines the exact cause of migraines are still undetermined but suggested to be linked to low cellular energy production.
‘ two small studies on the coenzyme Q10 and migraines have provided evidence that coenzyme 10 may help even prevent migraines. The first study found that among 31 patients who took 150mg of CoQ10 daily for three months, 61% of them reported at least 50% reduction in the number of days they had migraine attacks ‘
Research has showed that the CoQ10 input alleviates contributors to cardiovascular disease. Supplementing CoQ10 can signfiicantly increase HDL-C and lower levels of inflammatory biomarkers shown to be high risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Low levels of CoQ10 have been shown to have greater tissue damage to the heart and brain in the event of a heart attack or a stroke. Approx 83,600,000 adults in the U.S carry some form of CVD or another, more than 90% have Hypertension, 18% with Coronary Heart Disease and 10% with Myocardial Infarction, 8% with stroke and then 30% with actual CVD. After a Heart attack in a random clinical trial CoQ10 given to patients after a Heart Attack proved a much lower rate of subsequent cardiac events over the next year. In 12 clinical studies, researchers reported that CoQ10 has the potential to lower systolic blood pressure by 17 mm Hg and diastolic pressure by 10 mm HG without any side effects. This proves the marvelous efficacy of CoQ10.
