CoQ-10? Hype or Health?

I get questions all the time about whether supplements are all hype. Sadly, there’s lots of hype around CoQ10, so let’s separate truth from hype today.

CoQ-10 is an important antioxidant. It is found in every cell of the body and supports energy production in all the body’s cells and also provides wide-ranging cardiovascular support. Specifically, CoQ-10 supports the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a molecule that fuels all cell functions.

Nearly all of the body’s energy processes depend on CoQ-10 and levels are highest in the heart because it is a high-energy organ. Around age 35 or 40, the body’s ability to synthesize CoQ-10 diminishes and levels of CoQ-10 decline in the body to have ramifications on cardiovascular and neurological health as well as the immune system.

Chances are that you are not getting enough CoQ-10 in your diet either, and because environmental toxins also reduce CoQ-10, your body suffers a triple whammy: decreased internal production, insufficient diet levels and diminishing toxins.

From a dietary perspective, you’d have to eat several pounds of meat, nuts or sardines every day to get sufficient CoQ-10 intake. Of course, this is not feasible! CoQ-10 is a vital nutrient and you are likely not getting enough. So, no matter your age or current state of health, you should be taking CoQ-10. My private label supplement is an oil-based formulation, which is important because CoQ-10 is lipid soluble. I also add natural vitamin E which helps to stabilize and enhance the absorption of the CoQ-10. This is a nutrient that has been shown in research studies to extend cell life and improve your energy levels.

08-09-21 Deep Dive PREMIUM – with Jamie Walden

Meet Jamie Walden, of Omega Dynamics. Imbued with matchless passion for all things “adventurous” and “fun”, Jamie’s teen years were filled with significant tumult (injuries, arrests, and choices of near life-long consequence). However, amid the rebellion and ruckus, Jamie continually endeavored to one day earn the title, “U.S. Marine”. After being nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Defense, Intelligence, and Diplomacy in Washington, D.C., where he subsequently secured a nomination to the US Naval Academy, Jamie made the determination to simply enlist in the Marine Corps Infantry and achieve his childhood dream.

After leaving the Marines Corps, Jamie obtained a double major B.S. in Law Enforcement and History. Pursuing a career in Federal Law Enforcement, Jamie was selected as an Intern for the United States Marshals Service, and subsequent recruitment to a “Three Letter” agency. It was then, when Jamie received “the call”, that the Lord began testing and affirming the genuineness of his faith.

After again returning to Iraq in 2014 to serve the Christians suffering under the savage campaign of ISIS, Jamie and his wife Virginia were compelled to surrender their paradigm and follow the Lord into full-time ministry.

“The Mission of Omega Dynamics is this: to teach, train and equip “Those with ears to hear” to stand anew in their rightful place as more than conquerors in a kingdom that cannot be shaken…this generation is literally, eternally dying for us to”
