There are more and more studies emerging on the benefits of CoQ10. The bulk of studies have been on the effects CoQ10 has on cardiovascular disorders, including angina, acute myocardial infarction, arrhythmias and survivability of patients with congestive heart failure. It should be absolutely mandatory to take CoQ10 for anyone taking cholesterol lowering medication or for that matter red rice yeast. Both inhibit the body’s ability to manufacture CoQ10. CoQ10 is an antioxidant super star. It not only benefits the heart but plays a key role in fighting cancer. There are some significant studies on CoQ10 and breast cancer in particular. One interesting study was done in Demark with 32 “high risk” breast cancer patients. Six of the patients showed partial tumor regression. With a dosage of only 90mg. In one of these six patients they increased the dosage to 390 mg. and within one month the tumor was not palpable and in another month a mammogram confirmed the absence of the tumor. Consider this with one in three women in the United States developing breast cancer it makes sense to take at least 100 mg. of CoQ10 daily. Hence, the old proverb and ounce of prevention is better than a pound cure. OVitaminPro sells a wonderful liquid capsule form made by Karuna Products. Check it out in our store. The capsules are 100 mg so no need to take a ton of pills.
