Natural Heart Disease Treatment and Prevention Using Coenzyme Q10
Posted Sep 22 2008 11:00am
While I was living in Japan, I learned of an amazing medical breakthrough that could radically impact the cardiovascular system. In the 1960s the Japanese used a related compound called Coenzyme Q7 in corgestive heart failure. The next decade theJapanese began producing pure CoQ10 in large quantities to be used to fight heart disease and congestive heart failure.
Coenzyme Q10, often called ubiquinone, is essentially a vitamin-like substance that can be found in almost every cell in the body. It is very often to get this amount through a daily dietary intake and it is suggested that individuals with periodontal disease, high blood pressure, heart disease and impaired immunity can benefit from the antioxidant activities of CoQ10.
Because of it 's strong interaction with free radicals, CoQ10 is known for its anti-aging benefits. It slows and can often reverse cellular aging by reducing free radical damage and protecting DNA, cellular membranes and various enzyme systems in the body.
What is really great about CoQ10 and the reason why I started to use it; it is considered bioenergetic. It greatly enhances the energy in the mitochondria ( the energy generator of our cells) and speeds up metabolic energy.
Taking CoQ10 has been proven to reverse heart disease, lower cholesterol and increase the energy levels of various individuals.
Suggested CoQ10 dosage:
30-100 mg daily: preventative in cardiovascular or periodontal disease and for patients taking Hmg-CoA reductase inhibitors
90-180 mg daily: treatment of angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, high blood pressure and moderate gingival disease.
180-360mg: for congestive heart failure and dilated cardiomyoptahy.
**For a severly impaired immune system, as in cancer, even higher doses of CoQ10 may be required.
