Excerpts. Full article Written by Camille Fletcher October 23, 2014
Growing up is overrated! No matter the number of candles on your birthday cake, I believe you only have to be as old as you want to be. Me? Well, I’m rolling up on 40, but I still watch Scooby Doo cartoons on a regular basis, live for the summer trip to the local amusement park, and buy myself toys on occasion (most recently Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon that stays perched on my car’s dashboard at all times).
So, maybe I’m weird. But I’m not the only one out there who’s in touch with their inner child… you know who you are… and really, who says we have to act our age anyway?
Sometimes, though, mindset can only take us so far. Sometimes our bodies need a little help.
CoQuinone delivers coenzyme Q10. When we’re young, our bodies store or produce plenty of CoQ10, which is used by the mitochondria in each and every cell to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the form of energy that powers our cells. But as we age, the amount of CoQ10 that we absorb or produce naturally declines, so nutritional supplements can help top off our cellular energy stores to keep our cells working like they did when we were younger.
This is especially important for the heart, which needs lots of energy to function properly. CoQ10 levels are also high in the liver, kidneys, and pancreas.
However, by combining CoQ10 with alpha lipoic acid, CoQuinone offers even better support for good health!
According to The Journal of Nutrition, alpha lipoic acid may support mitochondrial function as well as help to retain healthy normal blood pressure and LDL levels.*
Should I Supplement with CoQuinone?
If you are generally healthy, you may want to consider supplementing if:
• You are over age 30. Levels of coenzyme Q10 in the body may begin to drop as early as your twenties!
• Maintaining cardiovascular health is one of your key concerns.
• You live a stressful lifestyle, you often exercise intensely, or you don’t eat as well as you should, because CoQ10 is also a powerful defender against oxidative stress.*
• You don’t eat meat or seafood—as these are the main sources.
• You are often very tired and weak (and if you are experiencing this, you should go to the doctor!).
