CoQ10. CoQ 10 is a widely known and widely studied molecule and a vitamin, and is very important to make our body function properly. There are very few CoQ10 side effects and a lot of benefits and we will be going through that in this video. Now, cells use CoQ10 in order to produce essential energy which is needed for cells to grow and also maintain themselves. In fact, CoQ10 is so vital to the production of energy, that it is in the highest concentration and those organs that require most of the energy, more specifically heart, liver and kidneys. CoQ 10 also works as an antioxidant by defending the body from free radicals and causing damage to your system. It is a good anti-aging vitamin and also helps to make proteins needed to help assist muscle contraction. And so those are a few of the benefits of CoQ10. Specifically CoQ10 can be consumed through certain foods. Foods that are richest in this substance include organ meats such as kidney, liver, and heart. It can also be found in peanuts, beef, sardines, and mackerel. Aside from obtaining it from food, it can also be taken through oral supplements. Now the benefits of CoQ10. There are more than 4000 different clinical studies that have been conducted about CoQ10. And all of them have proven that higher levels of CoQ10 indicate that a person will live a healthier and longer life. For example, three out of every four individuals who have suffered from heart conditions have been found to have major deficiencies in CoQ10. When those with heart problems were given CoQ10, their conditions were found to improve. Overall there were many benefits of CoQ10. While CoQ10 side effects are minimal CoQ10 may also benefit in other areas such as helping with weight and fatigue. It may also assist in your immune system by making it effective and healthy as well. It's also been discovered that CoQ10 supplements help those with high cholesterol. That's because people with high cholesterol actually have a lower CoQ 10 Because it produced less from the cholesterol being high. And so they end up being deficient in that. Studies also support that high blood pressure has been shown to improve with CoQ10. Now statin drugs have been specially shown to actually decrease CoQ10 levels, leading to muscle pains and discomfort. So with that, if you are taking a statin then CoQ10 supplementation has been found to decrease the side effect of the medications. It can be extremely challenging to supplement with CoQ10 orally because of this weak absorption levels. That is why taking a liposomal version of CoQ 10 is so important. Liposomal technology is a new technology that actually encapsulates CoQ 10 in fat, and liposomes, so it's actually able to get absorbed better. Normal CoQ10 is absorbed about 7-9%, but about 20% is absorbed when you take a liposomal version. Side effects of CoQ10 can be rashes, diarrhea, fatigue and headaches. So if you do experience these side effects, do consult your healthcare professional to see if CoQ 10 is the right supplement for you
