Several studies show how CoQ10 helps cardiovascular function and its multitude of benefits throughout the body. While most healthy people do get enough of the nutrient naturally through their diet, some do choose to take supplements to address specific health conditions such as heart or inflammation.
There’s more, though. This incredible nutrient is so beneficial to the body. Here are 10 health benefits of CoQ10.
(Natural News) From the sound of it, vaccines are like biological weapons that destroy human health and should all be completely banned until proven safe and effective by multiple independent labs running vigorous tests and extensive clinical trials. Within hours and days of being injected with harmful substances, recombinant DNA, mRNA and genetically mutated viruses, human beings, including babies and children, are being assaulted, maimed and killed by vaccines that are dirty and dangerous.

(NaturalHealth365) Virtually everyone is familiar with the feeling of physical fatigue: the sense of tiredness, the heaviness in the limbs, the overwhelming desire to rest. But there is another kind of fatigue that can be just as debilitating: mental fatigue. Sometimes referred to as “brain fog,” this temporary – but frustrating – mental state is characterized by impaired concentration, “fuzzy” thinking, lack of mental focus, and difficulty with simple cognitive tasks that would ordinarily be easy to complete.
(NaturalHealth365) The Mediterranean diet has long been considered a heart-healthy diet, which consists of legumes, fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and healthy fats, including olive oil. And it turns out that olive oil could be key in the health benefits it offers.
A recent trial found that consuming extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) boosts cognitive function, making a case for using long-term intervention with the oil to boost brain health and performance. What was surprising was how supplementing with EVOO stacked up against following the Mediterranean diet alone.
(NaturalHealth365) Chickpeas, a familiar staple at salad bars, are customarily used to accent and complement a bowl of mixed greens. But these plump, beige little legumes shouldn’t be thought of as merely a garnish to be tossed into salads.
Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are gaining credibility as a true “superfood” – with research revealing that they are packed with disease-fighting micronutrients.
In fact, the diversity and power of the health benefits of chickpeas may surprise you. Here are four reasons to give chickpeas a regular place on your plate.
(NaturalHealth365) You probably know about the popular adage, “you are what you eat.” Right? Well, science continues to back that saying up … especially when it comes to your brain function.
Growing research supports the positive (and negative) effects of the foods you eat on your body, mind and spirit – in particular the brain. That’s especially true of foods containing flavonoids, which are found in many vegetables, fruits, and other plant products. Rich in antioxidants, they work by powerfully warding off the threat of toxins, as well as other health benefits.
(NaturalHealth365)Are you feeling “frazzled?” For many people, the seemingly endless stream of data from social media, online news sources and cable TV can create a mentally fatiguing sense of “information overload.” But, an assortment of natural brain nutrients may be able to help.
Scientific research shows that these nootropic (brain function-enhancing) compounds can speed up brain processing, increase alertness and motivation, improve memory, diminish anxiety and stress and even fight cognitive decline.
In other words, these supplements can help to “supercharge” cognitive function – while promoting clarity, focus and a sense of calm. Let’s take a look at four of the very best brain nutrients for sharpening mental abilities and combating tension. →
One of the world’s most ancient trees, Ginkgo biloba is considered a “living fossil” because it’s been around for nearly 300 million years.

(NaturalHealth365) Did you know that most processed foods contain additives that are known to cause brain damage and place us at risk for neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and dementia?
Unfortunately, these “excitotoxins” (like aspartame) can be found in just about all heavily processed foods, meaning many canned, bottled and boxed foods. To be clear, the science swirling around about these dangerous substances is pretty grim, as you’ll see. →
