Questions @ CoQ-10? We Have Answers

Today, I want to focus on CoQ-10, an antioxidant that helps the cell produce energy. In fact, this antioxidant is found in every cell of the body and is abundant in the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell important in producing energy. CoQ-10 is an important enzyme in several chemical reactions that produce energy. We all need to supplement with CoQ-10 because after age 40, our natural levels start to decline.

CoQ-10 has actually been shown in research to protect the body against free radicals and it also extends cell life. In particular, CoQ-10 is beneficial in body systems that are high energy, such as the immune, neurological and cardiovascular systems.

Everyone can benefit from CoQ-10 to create energy inside the cell’s mitochondria. Cardiac muscle cells have a very high concentration of CoQ-10 because the heart never rests! Exercise creates oxidation and because CoQ-10 is an antioxidant, it can help reduce oxidative damage and muscle damage, including cardiac damage.

CoQ-10 declines with age, as the number of mitochondria are reduced, meaning the body’s ability to produce CoQ-10 is also reduced. Supplementation is needed to protect against cardiac diseases including hypertension and heart attacks. The powerful antioxidant is also associated with improved artery flexibility and blood flow.

Why do you need supplements?

There are foods that contain CoQ-10 but amounts are very small in foods like fish, beef and chicken, or oils, nuts and vegetables. You need a supplement to get the right amount.

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”
