Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10

Chiropractic Cullman AL Wellness

If you are concerned about your heart health... If you suffer from fatigue, muscle aches, or memory issues... then this is going to be big news for you. You probably know that CoQ10 plays a vital role in your health. CoQ10 is the "spark plug" that ignites energy production in every one of your 50 trillion cells. Without CoQ10... No energy... and no life! CoQ10 is also one of the most powerful antioxidants in your body. It works inside your cell membranes and crosses the blood-brain barrier. It protects your cells, proteins and even your DNA from free-radical damage.

Why Would You Use CoQ10?

  • Prevent Heart failure
  • Prevent Cardiomyopathy
  • Heart attack prevention and recovery
  • Help with high blood pressure
  • Prevent risk of diabetes
  • Fight gum disease
  • Prevent risk of kidney failure
  • Reduce Migraines
  • Counteract Prescription drug effects
  • Prevent risk of Parkinson's disease
  • Promote weight loss
  • If you are taking a satin drug

Satin Drugs and CoQ10

Satin drugs reduce the enzyme HMG CoA reductase, which is a key enzyme in the synthetic pathway for cholesterol and also for CoQ10. CoQ10 helps to produce energy or ATP for the mitochondria, or the powerhouse of the cell. Your body can store enough ATP to help you sustain rigorous activity for 5-8 minutes. Your body has to constantly produce ATP to be able to function at full capacity. For this to happen your body needs a good supply of CoQ10.


  • I recommend 200 MG per day due to the fact that your body will only absorb 25-30%
  • CoQ10 is fat-soluble, so it is better absorbed when taken with a meal that contains oil or fat
  • The clinical effect is not immediate and may take up to eight weeks


  • Consult your doctor before trying CoQ10, especially if you have heart disease, kidney failure, or cancer
  • Side effects of CoQ10 may include diarrhea and rash
  • CoQ10 is used in combination with standard treatment, not to replace it
  • CoQ10 may lower blood sugar levels, so people with diabetes should not use CoQ10 unless under a doctor's supervision. CoQ10 may also lower blood pressure
  • The safety of CoQ10 in pregnant or nursing women or children has not been established
