CoQ10 Fights Cancer

CoQ10 is the number one nutrient on my list to take every day. It is lauded as the breakthrough nutrient to combat heart disease, cancer, aging, periodontal disease, neurodegenerative diseases, Diabetes and more.

Be sure to read "The Coenzyme Q10 Phenomenon" by Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D. F.A.C.C., Author of Heartbreak and Heart Disease and other excellent books.

The section on CoQ10 and cancer is particularly important for me, since we are aware of so many people in our community who are battling this dreaded disease. Many are suffering terribly through chemo and radiation treatments. It's estimated that one in three people will get cancer in their lifetime, due in large part to our pollution-ridden environment.

You'll read in Dr. Sinatra's book of anecdotal reports demonstrating that high doses of CoQ10 supplementation (390 mg per day) have been associated with complete remission, even for patients with metastatic breast cancer. He quotes studies showing how low blood levels of CoQ10 make a person more susceptible to developing cancer.

University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine discovered that delivering CoQ10 to cancer cells and tissues, the molecule induced apoptosis, which is the normal programmed cell death that goes awry in the disease process.

The scientists were able to restore a cancer cell's ability to kill itself, while not impacting normal cells.

Learn more about their research online.

And the bottom line: take CoQ10 seriously. We take the dosage Dr. Sinatra suggests every day, simply as a precautionary measure. I remember Dr. Sinatra speaking at a Usana Health Sciences convention, when the company's CoQ10, called CoQuinone, was introduced to the product line. He said it met his high standards for manufacturing to ensure maximum bioavailability. That's important. Why take a product that will just wash through your system?

Do you need CoQ10?

As we age, the ability to absorb and synthesize CoQ10 diminishes and the amount of CoQ10 retained in tissues decreases. In addition, CoQ10 may be depleted by several other factors, including overall nutritional status and inadequate levels of the B vitamins, vitamin C, and selenium. some drugs, including the cholesterol-lowering statins, and excessive exercise or environmental stresses such as illness and extreme weather may also lower CoQ10 levels in tissue.

And if cancer doesn't concern you, how about heart disease?
Several human trials demonstrate CoQ10's effectiveness in maintenance of good heart functions.

Do your research on CoQ10. I highly recommend Usana's CoQuinone. It is manufactured to strict pharmaceutical standards, guaranteed for purity and bioavailability.
I wouldn't go a day without it.
