Good afternoon ladies and gents.
Just another short post, I know, but I've been rather busy lately. Moving into a new apartment. You never realise how much stuff you have until you need to fit it into boxes.
Anyway, I'd just like to talk about the lovely powdered product, CoQ10.
(You can get it in pill form, however, I love the little scoops you obtain within the powdered ones.)
Coenzyme Q10 is the fancy name for a dietary supplement that can be bought in most chemists. It occurs naturally in some foods, however, not enough of it is ever absorbed so that you can reap the benefits of this magic powder.
To view all the health benefits, you can go to the wikipedia page ->http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coenzyme_Q10#Supplementation_benefits
CoQ10 promotes cellular energy by improving the efficiency of the mitochondria in your cells. This, in turn, helps to maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. It's a great all round booster, improving your energy and overall health. As with all supplements, the effects are gradual but noticable. I've been taking this for 6 months now and I can tell you with sincere honesty, it is the best supplement I've ever taken (and I've tried a lot).
Anyway, the price for said powder varies depending on where you are. I picked my little tub up for 15 dollars, and one tub usually lasts around 1-2 months. If you do end up trying it, let me know how it works for you.
As always, this is based on my personal experience (apart from the science-y part.) All things in moderation, always follow the label and what not.
Take care of yourselves, next post will be a rant.
