Diabetes Control with CoQ10

blog imageOne of the best ways to lower blood pressure and improve glycemic control is to take Dr. Newton’s Naturals EZ Melts CoQ10 Complex. EZ Melts CoQ10 Complex contains powerful nutrients to help support a healthy cardio-vascular system. It also aids the body in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.

Two new research studies have identified Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a naturally occurring substance found in the mitochondria of cells thought to protect against cellular damage and fuel cell growth, to be a potential candidate for future prevention of Diabetic Neuropathy Pain (DPN) in both  type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients.

The two independent studies, released in January 2013 journal editions of Anesthesiology and theProceedings of of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), found that long-term use of CoQ10 has protective effects and reduces progressive loss of nerve function associated with DPN with minimal side effects in mice with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, respectively.

Coenzyme Q10, is a powerful antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. It can be taken in supplement form to treat a variety of conditions. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance.  CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods.  Our body makes it naturally, but one of the primary causes of less CoQ10 production is unavoidable. It’s the aging process. As we age, the natural production of CoQ10 dramatically decreases. It is believed that as many of 75% of men and women over the age of 50 are deficient in Coenzyme Q10.  Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.
