Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death worldwide.  Bor-Jen Lee, from Chung Shan Medical University (Taiwan), and colleagues enrolled 45 men and women with CAD, and 87 healthy individuals (served as controls), in a case-control study. The team measured subjects’ blood levels of Vitamin B6 and Coenzyme Q10. The CAD subjects had significantly lower levels of both nutrients, as compared to the control group.  Observing that: There was a significant correlation between the plasma levels of coenzyme Q10 and vitamin B-6 and a reduced risk of CAD,” the team submits that: “Further study is needed to examine the benefits of administering coenzyme Q10 in combination with vitamin B-6 to CAD patients, especially those with low coenzyme Q10 level.”

#72 - Sin of the Skin #3: Thin Skin
As we age, the skin becomes papery thin, and suffers from a decrease in oil gland activity (which also may cause skin to become dry). Largely a function of hormonal decline, you may benefit from a hormone replacement regimen. Consult an anti-aging physician, who will follow these guiding principles to design your hormone replacement therapy (HRT) regimen:
• Use natural, not synthetic, agents
• Select bioidentical hormones, which the body is able to use safely and efficiently
• Prescribe proper dosing (as stipulated by laboratory testing for deficits), not supraphysiologic dosing
• Conduct regular follow-up office visits and lab tests, to monitor progress
