The coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance vital to the body’s energy supply. It is stored in the cells, but it is depleted as we age.
The benefits of CoQ10 include preventing heart attack and stroke.
The heart is one of the few organs in the body to function continuously without resting; therefore, the heart muscle requires the highest level of energetic support. A decrease in CoQ10 leaves the tissues more sensitive to free radical attack.
Recent research found Q10 to be an important supplement for those taking cholesterol lowering drugs such as statins.
Coenzyme Q10 helps increase energy levels and overall sense of vitality. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Like l-carnitine, CoQ10 assists in mitochondrial energy production.
Dietary sources of CoQ10 come mainly from beef heart, pork, chicken livers and fish. The average person only gets 2–5 mg CoQ10 a day from diet, let alone vegetarians, who are indisputably deficient.
While CoQ10 benefits your health by sparking energy within the cells, L-carnitine is like a shuttle, bringing fuel into heart cells to be burned as energy.
Together, the benefits of CoQ10 and L-Carnitine include healthy blood pressure and the reduction of a wide variety of heart risk factors.
L-carnitine also carries out antioxidant and muscle protective activity.
L-carnitine is a water-soluble nutrient that helps support healthy fat utilization and energy production. For carnitine to have optimum effect, adequate omega-3 fatty acids need to be present in the diet. Carnitine optimizes energy formation and an active metabolism. Small amounts of carnitine are obtained from foods, such as meat and dairy products, but to get an abundant supply, supplementation is necessary.
Carnitine has an important role in weight-loss because it is anti-inflammatory and aids in transportation of fats into the mitochondria to be burned to generate energy. Carnitine enhances the sensitivity of insulin receptors, helping to decrease blood sugar and circulating levels of insulin.
Omega-3 is important to normal immune system response and can also suppress the production of inflammatory substances. It is required for the development and function of the brain. It helps reduce blood triglyceride (fat) levels. It as been found that a deficiency of Omega 3 fish oils can result in learning difficulties. People with inflammatory and autoimmune disorders may also benefit from this supplement.
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids from fish oil have anti-inflammatory characteristics and can help promote weight loss. Omega-3’s also elevate mood, stabilize blood sugar levels, lower insulin levels, and decrease appetite.
The ideal balance of Omega 6 to Omega-3 is a ratio of 2:1 or 1:1. The standard diet now contains a highly inflammatory ratio of 24:1 Omega-6 to Omega-3.
A combination of L-carnitine, omega-3, and CoQ10 may improve visual function in early age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Together with garlic these substances benefit the heart, the cardiovascular system and have a high antioxidant effect:
Garlic has lipid-lowering, anti-blood coagulation, anti-hypertension, anti-cancer, antioxidant and anti-microbial effects, the substance in it, that is responsible for these highly beneficial effects, is allicin, the major biologically active component of garlic: it is the key ingredient responsible for the broad-spectrum of anti-bacterial activity.
Garlic helps regulate blood pressure.
It is also effective in reducing symptoms of the common cold and keeping sinuses clear.
Each capsule contains high doses of Omega-3 fatty acid, the coenzyme Q-10, odourless garlic extract, as well as l-carnitine.
These highly effective substances work synergistically with each other to achieve even greater health benefits.
