Are you taking the wrong
type of CoQ10?
Coenzyme Q10 is one fantastic nutrient. Your body typically makes plenty of it in your liver. But when your body doesn't make enough, it is hard to replace. That's because CoQ10 isn't absorbed very well. Fortunately, there's one type of CoQ10 that's easily absorbed. And it can work wonders on your heart.
Researchers recently gave a group of rabbits one of three infusions: CoQ10 laden liposomes, empty liposomes, or saline. Then they closed off a coronary artery for 30 minutes (occlusion). And then the researchers opened the artery to blood flow (reperfusion). The risk area to their main left ventricle was 20% of its mass. It's well known and accepted that when a blood vessel occludes, its reopening can lead to yet more injury called "reperfusion injury."
The rabbits that took the saline lost 70% of the risk heart mass area. Those taking empty liposomes lost 60% of the risked area. But those given the CoQ10 lost only 30%. The authors concluded that CoQ10 greatly protected those heart muscle cells at the greatest risk.
CoQ10 is a critical nutrient for your cells' furnaces, the mitochondria. And your heart, your body's constant workhorse, is loaded with mitochondria. CoQ10 is required for them to make energy. It protects the mitochondria from the hot blast of combustion they stoke.

As I mentioned earlier, CoQ10 is tough to replenish when your body doesn't make enough. So it's vital you take a CoQ10 that's easy to absorb. It is called ubiquinol. While it is impractical to give you IV CoQ10, ubiquinol currently provides you the best delivery of CoQ10 available. If your heart is at risk with any affliction, please be sure CoQ10 is at the top of your list. You can order the product from Advanced Bionutritionals by following this link.
