Living Well Forever with CoQ10


What is CoQ10?

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant naturally produced by our bodies that’s often linked to longevity. Our cells use CoQ10 for growth and maintenance, creating energy which then enables proper cell function. CoQ10 has many benefits, but primarily works to protect cells by neutralizing any free radicals in the body, resulting in reduced oxidative stress. 

As we age, our body’s ability to produce CoQ10 declines. This can lead to increased oxidative stress, which can manifest as tissue damage, inflammation, cellular apoptosis, or even cell death. Reduced CoQ10 means an increase in  free radicals and an increased risk of disease. Scientists have identified associations between CoQ10 deficiencies and people who suffer from heart disease or cancer.


CoQ10’s Uses

CoQ10’s benefits range from superficial to substantial, with multiple studies that have been conducted to determine its efficacy. One clinical trial showed that optimal results occur when CoQ10 is dosed daily over the span of a month.  

When applied directly, CoQ10 can reduce the effect that UV rays have on the face, and can even help decrease the depth of wrinkles. 

Fertility: Since CoQ10 helps reverse symptoms of aging, it may also help maintain a woman’s fertility as she ages. 

Diabetes: CoQ10 supplementation has been found to help people with diabetes improve their insulin sensitivity and better regulate their blood sugar levels

Migraines: According to some research, CoQ10 might decrease the frequency of migraine headaches.

Heart Conditions: CoQ10 has been shown to improve symptoms of congestive heart failure since it may help reduce blood pressure.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases: Increased levels of CoQ10 may help slow the progress of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, due to increased mitochondrial energy which can reduce inflammation in the brain. 

Lung Diseases: Studies have shown that people with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) experience less inflammation with supplementing with CoQ10. COPD patients even require fewer steroids than usual.   


CoQ10 Sources and Dosages

With so many benefits, CoQ10 should be a staple in your supplement cupboard. Some foods naturally contain CoQ10, but not in an amount that has been shown to significantly increase CoQ10 levels in your body. This makes CoQ10 an ideal supplement to add to your daily regimen. 

However, it can be difficult for your body to absorb CoQ10. This makes TRANSCEND’S Ubiquinol a great alternative. Ubiquinol is a bioavailable form of CoQ10 that is easier for your body to absorb. 

The recommended dosage for those with CoQ10 deficiency is 100 mg to 200 mg per day. For the average person, the range is anywhere from 100 mg to 1,200 mg per day. Since CoQ10 cannot be stored in the body, it should be taken daily over the course of months for maximum effect.
