[3:10] Why hasn’t your doctor told you about CoQ10?
[4:12] CoQ10 is an essential nutrient that our body requires. It works as an antioxidant in our body.
[5:22] Our bodies can make small amounts of CoQ10 on their own, but only small amounts and our body needs more CoQ10 as we age.
[5:44] CoQ10 is extremely important for energy; energy within every cell in our body.
[6:10] CoQ10 also helps other enzymes in our body, such as those that digest our food. It also works as an antioxidant and helps with absorption of other vitamins in our body.
[6:54] Our body makes less CoQ10 as it ages. This is why it’s important to get it in our diet, as a supplement, or both. You will want to eat things such as grass-fed beef, fish, herring, free-range chicken, rainbow trout, sesame seeds, pistachios, broccoli, oranges, strawberries, and cage-free eggs.
[8:07] If you are taking statin drugs that deplete your body of CoQ10, then you will likely need to take supplements of CoQ10 in order to get enough. The softgel tablets or chewable forms are more easily absorbed by the body.
[10:26] It’s worth spending a little more money for quality CoQ10 supplements.
[10:56] This episode’s Feeling Good Superhero is Robert. Robert was a patient of Dr. Phil’s a few years ago when statin drugs were new and he came to the pharmacy and complained of muscle weakness and was low on energy. Dr. Phil saw that Robert was taking a statin drug and he knew Robert needed to supplement with CoQ10 and encouraged him to talk to his doctor. The CoQ10 helped him get his energy back and get off the coach and do the things he loved to do everyday. It was life-changing for Robert. Thanks for being our Feeling Good Superhero today, Robert.
