Coenzyme Q-10 has been promoted as a heart healthy supplement. However, it wasn’t untill recently that I discovered that it was also an natural energizer. The scientific explanation behind this fact can be confusing. So, here is the break down in simple terms.
Inside the cell your body produces energy in the form of ATP from carbs and fat. Coenzyme Q-10 works inside the cell to aid the body in the process which converts what you eat into energy. Therefore this supplement helps you form more ATP (energy).
Research supports the notion that supplementing with CoQ10 boosts energy levels. A recent study from Japan reported that subjects who supplemented with 300 mg of CoQ10 per day for eight days had significantly less fatigue during exercise and recovered faster between exercise bouts.
Energize me: Take 100–200 mg of CoQ10 with breakfast and another equal dose at lunch or dinner (source).
If you are like me, then you want all the help you can get to have more energy and burn more fat! Looks like I will be heading to the store to pick up some of this. I can add it to my long list of supplements!
