(NaturalHealth365) Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is a nutrient found in many foods and occurs in the body naturally. It is a powerful antioxidant that works to prevent cell damage, but it also has several cardiovascular advantages. It is also a major component of metabolism.
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.
(NaturalHealth365) Heart disease, a condition in which the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet the body’s demands, currently affects 5.7 million people in the United States, with roughly 550,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Unfortunately, heart failure – often triggered by coronary artery disease and ischemic heart disease – features a high mortality rate.
(NaturalHealth365) When it comes to nutrition, we’ve only learned how powerful coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can be within the past few decades. This antioxidant plays a significant part in your body’s energy levels, and as you grow older, the body produces less CoQ10 – which means you need to get more of this essential nutrient from food or supplementation.
(NaturalHealth365) If you struggle with depression, you have plenty of company. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over 40 million Americans currently suffer from the condition. In fact, depression is so widespread that experts predict that about half of the population will experience at least one episode of depression in their lives. Clearly, there is a need for effective natural interventions for depression.
Fortunately, recent research supports the ability of simple lifestyle changes and natural nutrients and supplements to complement conventional antidepressant therapy. For ten of the most effective natural techniques against depression, keep reading.
(NaturalHealth365) Half of all Americans over 60 suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension), a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke and kidney failure. In fact, research shows that even small increases in blood pressure increase the danger, with every 20/10 mmHg rise over optimal levels (115/75 mmHg) causing heart disease risk to double! And, while conventionally-trained physicians tend to prescribe drugs to reduce blood pressure, these medications can produce toxic side effects.
Fortunately, a variety of vitamins and nutrients can significantly reduce blood pressure. To discover the top 9 natural supplements for blood pressure control, keep reading.
(NaturalHealth365)With over 25 percent of American adults over age 40 currently taking statin drugs to lower cholesterol, it’s clear to see that these medications are capable of yielding astronomical profits for Big Pharma. In 2019 alone, for example, Lipitor (atorvastatin) generated a stunning $2 billion dollars in revenue for its manufacturer, Pfizer.
While statin medications are lavishly endorsed and prescribed by Western medicine, natural health experts have long cautioned of toxic side effects – and clinical research exists to back them up. Let’s take a look at ten unwanted adverse effects from statin drugs, along with some nutrients that can help manage cholesterol naturally. →
(NaturalHealth365)The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “estimate” that 14,000 – 36,000 deaths have occurred (due to the flu) since October 2019. Although the CDC does admit: they don’t know exactly how many die because the flu is “not a reportable disease in most areas of the U.S.” →
(NaturalHealth365) Heart disease and cancer are now the leading causes of mortality in the United States. Together, these two deadly diseases are responsible for over 1.2 million deaths a year – a tragic toll, and one which experts say is largely preventable. Recent research demonstrates the potential of natural nutrients – vitamin D, along with a pair of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil – to help stem this deadly tide.
As natural health experts have long insisted, these two non-toxic nutrients can help prevent the development of heart disease and cancer, thereby sparing countless lives. Unfortunately, experts estimate that up to 40 percent of Americans may have insufficient levels. →
(NaturalHealth365) While its symptoms may seem easy to ignore, gingivitis can causeserious health problems, if left untreated. Over time, gingivitis can develop into gum disease, ravaging surrounding mouth tissue and bone. Also known as periodontitis, this advanced gum disease condition can often cause a loss of teeth and be the “seed” to many other health issues. →
(NaturalHealth365) As you probably know, it’s not cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes or auto accidents that make ups the conditions most likely to threaten the lives of American adults – it’s cardiovascular disease. In fact, according to statistics published by the CDC, heart diseasecurrently kills nearly 650,000 people – every year – in the United States. And a primary factor in heart disease is arterial plaque – artery-clogging deposits of fat and calcium that can lead to angina, heart attack and stroke.
