In the video below, I summarize the pros and cons of CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10)… And how to best use it for maximum safety and effectiveness.
“So How Effective Is CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) For Lowering Cholesterol & Triglycerides?…”
Coenzyme Q-10, also known as CoQ10, ubiquitone and ubidecarenone, is a naturally occurring enzyme that is found in every cell in the body. Without CoQ10 NO cell in the body remains alive. The ramifications of interfering with the production of CoQ10 is insurmountable.
CoQ10’s most critical role is to protect and create energy within the cells of the heart and skeletal muscles. The heart has the greatest requirement and highest concentrations of CoQ10 than any other tissue in the body.
Reduced levels of CoQ10 could be dangerous to the heart and many times a potential factor in heart disease (and prevention) – which is why you never want to take “statin” medications because they deplete this vital enzyme (more on this below).
Can CoQ10 Reverse Heart Disease?…
Many studies have shown that CoQ10 is necessary for a healthy heart, and maintaining a healthy heart is the best way to avoid heart disease. Every muscle in the body needs CoQ10 to produce energy, and the heart muscle, having the greatest energy requirement, has the greatest concentration of this nutrient.
However, you natural production of CoQ10 peaks in your 20’s and declines thereafter. With the main food sources of CoQ10 being organ meats, not usually a part of today’s diets, you’re much more prone to a deficiency, especially from middle age onward (hence, why it’s so important you supplement your diet with it).
Warnings & “Scams”
As with anything, there are always potential “negatives” and here are a few things you want to watch out for:
- IF you take statin prescription drugs, you MUST supplement your diet with CoQ10 because these harmful drugs DEPLETE this vital enzyme (which is why these drugs actually INCREASE the risk of heart disease!)
- The best form of CoQ10 is “Ubidecarenone” because it’s the most absorbable and natural..
- You never want to take only the CoQ10 by itself because it doesn’t lower cholesterol – but it IS NEEDED for healthy heart function. Hence, you need to take it with other natural ingredients (more on this below).
But, don’t go out and spend your hard-earned money on CoQ10 just yet …
“So, What’s YOUR Best & Safest Solution?…”
I’ll be honest with you. No one single ingredient works at 100% effectiveness forever, let alone for every person. And that includes CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) or any other single herb or nutrient.
Think about it. Just like you don’t eat only broccoli for best health, you don’t want to use only one herb or nutrient either.
The best products use red yeast rice, in conjunction with other key ingredients, at specific dosages to dramatically help with lowering cholesterol & triglycerides. Other key ingredients you should look for when purchasing a product, which also work in synergy with red yeast rice are:
- Policosanol (make sure it contains specific “octacosanol” and not the cheaper form of “beta-sistosterol”)
- Garlic Extract (make sure it’s Deodorized with 1.3% alliin)
- Pantesin® d-Pantethine
- Guggulsterones (make sure it’s 10% Pure Extract; E and Z)
- Artichoke Leaf Extract (make sure it’s 15% Chlorogenic Acid, 5% Cynarin)
- Phytosterols Complex
Additionally, whatever product you select – make sure it has a liver cleansing formula (because your liver is where cholesterol problems first start) and something to reduce Homocysteine levels (which is 43% cause of heart attacks). This is REALLY IMPORTANT!
When the above ingredients are combined together in proper ratios, the “synergy” creates a much more effective solution, at a lower dose – WITHOUT your body adapting or having negative side-effects. That’s the secret!…
Confused? Too Many Options & Choices?
Here’s What Other People Have Done…
Now, you might be thinking, “Geez, I don’t want to take 20-30 pills a day, buying a bunch of bottles and herbs” and I don’t blame you. Who has the time OR money?…
Fortunately, there’s “all-in-one” solution called CholesLo™, which contains the above key ingredients, in specific extracted dosages — in addition to a couple other helpful ingredients.
The feedback has been amazing and since the product has been around since 1999, you know it works!
