Statins can reduce the levels of CoQ10 in the body, so taking a supplement to counteract these can avoid side effects like muscle pain, nausea, and increased blood sugar levels, among others.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 22, 2021
Developers of Betterment supplements and stimulants ASYSTEM have released their guide on when to take CoQ10 morning or night, in line with its goals to provide people with the tools and information to be their best. This guide covers the basics of what CoQ10, what it does for the body, and of course when the best time during the day to take a supplement for it would be.
CoQ10, also known as Coenzyme Q-10, is an enzyme which the body produces naturally, and aids in the chemical reactions that lead to energy production. Not only that, but CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant which removes potentially harmful oxidizing agents and works to maintain the body’s natural processes. Its benefits go beyond that— CoQ10 has been shown to support cardiovascular health and enable the heart to recover after surgery. CoQ10 is also known to mitigate the side-effects incurred by taking statins, which treat high cholesterol levels. Statins can reduce the levels of CoQ10 in the body, so taking a supplement to counteract these can avoid side effects like muscle pain, nausea, and increased blood sugar levels, among others. Other studies have also discovered that CoQ10 can improve cognitive functions, support athletic performance by decreasing lactic acid production, and supporting metabolic processes.
The medical experts at ASYSTEM have found that those who are maintaining an exercise regimen and a healthy diet wouldn’t need extra CoQ10, but for those who don’t it may be best to take a supplement. The body typically produces less CoQ10 as it ages, so those who are older may find themselves needing the extra boost of enzymes. On top of them, the body also acquires it from food, particularly foods high in B vitamins. If you find your diet doesn’t contain many of these, you may also want to consider a supplement. Finally, deficiencies in Coenzyme Q-10 can be caused by both medication side effects or as effects of disease, so if you suffer from diabetes, cancer, heart disease, or take statin drugs for high cholesterol, a supplement may be in order.
For those wanting a supplement and wondering when to take CoQ10 morning or night, it’s important to know a few things. Firstly is that CoQ10 is a fat-soluble enzyme, which means it is most effective to take it alongside a light meal, and as an active digestive system will help the body absorb it better, it’s not recommended to take it before bed. In other words, you should take CoQ10 about thirty minutes after waking up, and after you’ve had a light breakfast. For those looking for supplements to take, ASYSTEM produces its own set of supplements called Superhuman Supplements, which includes a daily dose of CoQ10 as part of this multivitamin. As with any supplement, you should consult with a physician before adding these to your diet, and ensuring that a CoQ10 supplement doesn’t have an adverse effect with any other medications you take.
