CoQ10 shares the same synthetic pathway in the body as cholesterol. When you block cholesterol with statins, you block the body's natural production of CoQ10
East Hanover, NJ (PRWEB) December 10, 2007
High cholesterol, diabetes, and cancer all have one thing in common: their medical treatments often rob the body of the very nutrient it needs to maintain heart and brain health, Coenzyme Q10. In the fifty years since its discovery, CoQ10 has been clinically shown to play a vital role in the mitochondria, the body's cell production powerhouse, but it is QuTen Research Institute's recent technological breakthrough that has allowed the large molecular weight of CoQ10 to be formulated in a daily dietary supplement, Qunol Ultra CoQ10, that may actually help prevent cell damage and improve health in just weeks.
Dr. Frederic Vagnini, board certified heart surgeon and host of New York City radio program, "The Heart Show," explained Qunol's breakthrough Ultra CoQ10 supplement, "In the past, absorbing CoQ10 supplements in the body was difficult because its molecule dissolved only in fats. Qunol Ultra CoQ10 supplement is both water and fat soluble and has demonstrated 300% better absorption than other CoQ10 supplements." Qunol's CoQ10 absorption, the Dr. pointed out, results in increased heart energy and a more potent anti-oxidant effect in just weeks - not the months that fat-soluble supplements delivered.
Because the body's ability to produce the Coenzyme Q10 nutrient decreases steadily with age, 50% by the age of 43, cells become damaged and degenerative diseases occur. Worse, many of the medications used to treat degenerative diseases deplete the cellular energy the body needs to function fully. "For example," shared the heart surgeon, "CoQ10 shares the same synthetic pathway in the body as cholesterol. When you block cholesterol with statins, you block the body's natural production of CoQ10," adding, "If you take statins, its important to take a CoQ10 supplement to maintain blood pressure and a strong and healthy heart."
