And lastly Number 1.
CoQ10 or Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is a fat-soluble molecule that has significant benefits for people with cardiovascular disease.
CoQ10 plays two major roles in your body: energy and protection.
It gives energy to your nerve cells which need more nutrition than most other cells.
And as a powerful antioxidant it protects your body from pollution and toxins in the environment and within your body.
All cells need CoQ10 for their energy needs. CoQ10 is found throughout the body in cell membranes, especially in the mitochondria, and is abundant in the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, and adrenal glands.
Your brain, heart and nerve cells need the most energy. Nerve cells are sick or damaged in neuropathy and for them to heal they need adequate levels of CoQ10.
In one study, neuropathy symptoms such as pain and tingling improved and in fact were cut in half or better on CoQ10. The nerves were also healing with an improved speed for conducting impulses.
However, the amount of CoQ10 in our body decreases as we age.
You can eat foods like organ meats, fatty fish, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, oranges, and lentils to get more CoQ10.
