Heart Health & CoQ10….What Does It Mean For Lowering Cholesterol?

February is the month of heart health.  Most likely over the past few years you’ve seen a news update on something called CoQ10.  So what is CoQ10…..below we’ll get to that & what it means to people who are on statins or working on lowering cholesterol.  Let jump right in.

The Challenge

Your heart pumps approximately 2,000 gallons of blood throughout the body every day. As the hardest-working muscle in your body and the circulatory system’s main control center, your heart requires a significant amount of energy to function properly. That energy is made available with the help of a nutrient called coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which also plays a role in supporting blood vessel health. CoQ10 is produced naturally by the body and is present in all cells. Dietary intake helps maintain CoQ10 levels; however, the amount of CoQ10 consumed from foods is typically less than 10 mg a day. More important, factors such as poor diet, aging, and daily exposure to free radicals may increase the need for this crucial nutrient.

Did You Know?

• Your heart beats 100,000 times a day
• The aorta, the largest artery in the body, is almost the
diameter of a garden hose
• The use of certain medications can reduce CoQ10 levels
in the blood

Dietary Intake Of CoQ10

Dietary intake helps maintain CoQ10 levels. However, the amount of CoQ10 consumed from foods is typically less than 10 mg a day. Supplementation is beneficial; to get the same 100mg of CoQ10 in CoQHeart, you would have to eat 6 ¼ pounds of beef or 100 cups of broccoli. Take a look at the chart below to see the amount of CoQ10 in some commonly consumed foods:


Tips To Help Keep Your Heart Healthy

1. Watch what you eat. A diet low in saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, and sodium—but high in fiber—
promotes a healthy heart.
2. Achieve a healthy weight. Too many calories and not enough exercise can promote weight gain.
Modest weight loss of 5%–10% of your weight can improve heart health, if overweight.
3. Stay Active. Get at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. Even a simple but brisk walk can make a
big difference.
4. Don’t smoke. Smoking makes your heart work harder and can increase blood pressure.
5. Laugh more. Studies show laughing can relax blood vessels and contribute to a healthy heart.
6. Take your supplements. Supplement your diet with CoQHeart®, which delivers 100 mg of CoQ10 plus
resveratrol in a bioavailable softgel.

blood flow.*

Clinically Tested Key Ingredients

Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient produced in the body and present in all cells. Higher concentrations of this nutrient are found in organs that work extra hard and require a significant amount of cellular energy to function, such as the heart, the liver, the kidneys, and the pancreas.

CoQ10 is vital to the trillions of cells in the body that must make their own energy to survive. To make energy, cells burn sugars and fats that come from the foods we eat. These nutrients are broken down and carried through an energy-producing pathway that requires CoQ10. This energy-producing process is repeated thousands of times a second and fuels your beating heart and other body organs that require a continuous flow of energy. W ithout CoQ10, cells would not be able to produce energy and organs would not be able to function properly.

CoQ10 is also known for its potent antioxidant activity, protecting cell membranes from free radicals. As an antioxidant, CoQ10 helps protect arteries against the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL). This is important
as it helps promote the function of blood vessels, including those that transport blood to the heart.

Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a phytonutrient found in red wine, red-grape skins, and purple grape juice. Like CoQ10,
resveratrol plays a role in heart and blood vessel health. In laboratory studies, resveratrol has been shown to help
reduce the oxidation of LDL and to promote blood vessel relaxation. The more relaxed blood vessels are, the wider
they open to promote healthy blood flow.

Who Should Take CoQHeart?

• Healthy adults 18 and older concerned about their heart function and artery health.
• Adult men and women who take certain medications that may lower CoQ10 levels in the blood.
• If pregnant, nursing, or if taking blood thinning or blood pressure medications, consult your physician prior to using CoQ10.
