    A Practical Guide to Taking CoQ10

    Addressing Energy Production and Overall Health

    CoQ10 or coenzyme Q10 is an essential nutrient found in every cell in the body. CoQ10 plays an important role in making energy in the cells and protecting the body against free radicals. Coenzyme Q10 helps provide the energy for the healthy function of your heart, brain, muscles, kidneys, and other tissues.

    CoQ10 is extremely helpful in strengthening the contraction of the heart muscle. As a pharmacist, I see many individuals taking medications that tend to lower the body’s Coq10 level. It is common to have a low CoQ10 level when using cholesterol-lowering medications called statins. Thirteen controlled studies conducted between 1990–2004 demonstrated significant drops in CoQ10 levels, due to the use of statin medications. Acid blockers, some blood pressure medications, and certain diabetes medications are some of the other drugs that lower coenzyme Q10 levels.

    Emotional and Mental Stress: Dealing With Them the Right Way

    The Pandemic Has Increased Stress Levels of Many

    I have received numerous emails and phone calls lately asking me if I can recommend a supplement for anxiety and panic attacks. The number of requests has increased recently, and as you can guess, it is partially due to the stress associated with being in a pandemic as well as the social unrest related to recent events.

    Stress & Anxiety

    Some of you have lost your job. Some have lost a loved one. You are limiting social get-togethers. You hesitate to travel. You are uncertain about your future, the future of your loved ones, society, and this world. All of these factors can create more anxiety.
