Are you on a path of wild goose chases because you can’t find a doctor who can treat your symptoms of chronic muscle and joint pain, foggy thinking, and low energy? They may prescribe a variety of drugs and therapies, none of which work for any length of time. You have one of those mystery illnesses that are treated for the symptoms, but not the cause.
You may just chalk it up to getting older. Your body begins to ache and you don’t have the energy you used to. Before you do that, however, you may want to consider the possibility that you may be suffering from a vitamin deficiency.
Your heart is working 24/7 to pump needed oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. It beats, on the average, 100,000 times a day in order to do its job. That is billions of times throughout your lifetime. That is why exercising and keeping your heart healthy is the key to a healthy life.
A protein known as CoEnzyme Q10, or CoQ10 fuels your heart. You may not have heard of it before, but it’s important that you understand why this nutrient is so important to your body function. CoQ10 is a cellular energy booster and powerful antioxidant, and is an essential part of your body’s energy process. It is found throughout your body, but the highest concentration is in the heart muscle because of the high demand the heart needs.
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant cofactor that has been shown to protect the brain. In addition to being a potent free radical scavenger, CoQ10 has proven to be effective in a wide variety of age-related conditions. You can lose CoQ10 from stress, illness or certain statin medicines. As a matter of fact, statins are the worst offenders, and few doctors warn their patients that by taking a statin drug in order to improve your heart you are actually taking the very fuel the heart needs in order to work properly.
When CoQ10 is at high levels your hear works like a charm. When the levels are low your heart strains to pump the needed nutrients through your body, and especially to your brain. This nutrient may be just what your doctor is missing in his/her diagnosis of your mystery illness.
CoQ10, also known as as Ubiquinone or Ubidecarenone, is available as a supplement, and by taking it regularly you will find a significant increase in your energy, memory and overall health.
