No Dust Under Me
This past Saturday I had a Church Council meeting with our group which was conducted at a new facility which will house women and children that are homeless or suffer with addiction. Just prior to the start of our meeting at a conference room within the facility, I was confronted with a question from one of our council members. He asked, “I’m turning 40 and already lacking energy, what supplement do I need that would help me?” Back to the Future When this question is on the table I always start with Organ Sulfur but I began this time with the start of our cellular energy,Ubiquinol Click here. I said to him, “If you are concerned about your heart health… if you suffer from fatigue, muscle aches or memory issues, then this is going to be big news for you.” CoQ10 is the “spark plug” that ignites energy production in every one of your 50 trillion cells. Without CoQ10 … no energy … and no life! CoQ10 is also one of the most powerful antioxidants in your body. It works inside your cell membranes and crosses the blood-brain barrier. It protects your cells, proteins and even your DNA from free-radical damage. It’s very difficult for your body to absorb conventional CoQ10. Even if it’s packed in liquid gel caps with vitamin E or fat to make it easier to absorb. Only as little as 4% may actually reach your bloodstream. The Past Only Offered One Option But until now, this conventional CoQ10 was your best (and only) option. Another problem is that once the CoQ10 enters your body, it has to be converted to a more natural, bio-available form of CoQ10 called Ubiquinol Click here— before you get any of its energy-boosting benefits. That’s okay when you’re young. But as you get older starting around 30, you convert less and less. Your total levels of CoQ10 drop. So does your ability to metabolize CoQ10 into the bio-available form your body really needs. Medications can lower your CoQ10 levels, too. Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs do the same. Statins work by suppressing an enzyme in your liver that makes both cholesterol and CoQ10. So it’s no surprise that statins can cause a CoQ10 deficiency. In fact, statins can reduce blood levels of CoQ10 by 40% or more. This deficiency can lead to...
