Coenzyme Q10 (coq10): Yes Or No For Your Metabolism

This unique nutrient receives attention for type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and metabolism. Coenzyme Q10 / CoQ10: Coenzyme Q10 has another name, Ubiquinol, a reference to its ubiquitous presence in every cell throughout the body. The unfortunate popularity of “statin” medication for lowering blood cholesterol put CoQ10 on the map of research in the past decades because these medications problematically cause a drop in tissue CoQ10 levels. This biochemical result from cholesterol medications is likely behind the statin side effects of muscle pain, weakness, and fatigue. CoQ10 supplementation is more indicated for people with elevated lipids, elevated blood pressure, and elevated blood glucose. According to researchers, “CoQ10 supplementation may improve blood pressure and long-term glycemic control in subjects with type 2 diabetes.” Due to drug interactions, you might require CoQ10. Medical prescribing manuals recommend supplemental CoQ10 for those on beta-blockers and statin medications. Athletes at peak condition can generate slightly more peak performance if they take CoQ10 along with intensive training.
