Everyone ages 30 and older should supplement with coQ10 to protect heart health. There is just no question because natural production of this vital heart-energizing nutrient peaks in a person’s early 20s and then biosynthesis lessens with age.
By age 60, biosynthesis has decreased by half (see graph below showing typical plasma levels of coQ10 with age) and the need for supplementation becomes more critical if a person is taking heart medications like statins that inhibit coQ10 production further.
With almost a quarter of the 120 million people of the Baby Boomer generation in the United States taking statin drugs, many suffer from muscle fatigue, a sign of severely depleted coQ10 levels and they don’t know it.
“CoQ10 supplementation would definitely help these individuals and it is indeed a big market,” says William Judy, Ph.D., who has been studying the nutrient for nearly 40 years and its several pathways and benefits in the body.
A great supplement for receiving CoQ10 is in the Ageless Essentials Daily Pak (click on the picture to learn more or to purchase).
