One of the most important muscles in your body is your heart. Do you realize how important it is to your health? At about the size of a clenched fist sitting front and middle of your chest, behind and slightly to the left of your breastbone this all-important muscle pumps blood to all parts of your body. Providing oxygen, hormones, and other components to a host of essential cells. Your heartbeat is the result of blood moving forward through your arteries. You can feel this movement as a ‘pulse’. At rest, a heart beats at a rate of 60 to 100 times per minute, however a child’s average heart heat is higher than an adult. 

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 

Coenzyme Q10 plays a central role in the energy-production structures within cells and the storage of that energy in the cells. This fat-soluble compound can be produced by the body or taken in your diet.  

You can obtain coenzyme from the following foods:  

  • Organ meats like heart, liver, and kidney 
  • Some muscle meats: pork, beef, and chicken  
  • Fatty fish 
  • Spinach, cauliflower, and broccoli  
  • Oranges, and strawberries  
  • Soybeans, lentils, and peanuts 
  • Sesame seeds, and pistachios  

Overtime the concentrate of coenzymes in tissues decline. Taking an oral high-dose coenzyme q10 can usually effectively treat this decline. It has been found that heart failure patients with lo plasma coenzyme Q10 concentration is a biomarker of advanced heart disease.  

Beside the associated benefits of coenzyme Q10 in heart health it can help other parts of your body like brain function, lung health, and is also found in anti-aging skin care products.
