Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a “cellular energy booster, powerful antioxidant, and it’s an essential part of your body’s energy-producing process.” CoQ10 levels are at their highest around the heart and when you have a deficiency your heart struggles to perform, thus causing you to experience low energy levels, head fog, or muscle and joint pain. As we age, our levels of CoQ10 naturally diminish and it’s important that we supplement this loss, so our heart can stay strong longer. Other benefits of CoQ10 are: boosts brain power and mental clarity, fights off free radicals that cause aging, and energizes your heart.
It is recommended to take at least 100-200 mg of CoQ10 per day. This is especially important if you take medications, like statins, because it can cause a CoQ10 deficiency.
