Can CoQ10 Save Your Heart?

Hi, my name is Dr. Chauncey Crandall and I am a practicing interventional cardiologist, chief of the Cardiovascular Preventive Medicine Program at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic, and editor of the popular Newsmax Health newsletter Heart Health Report.

You already know how important the role of CoQ10 is to maintaining optimal cardiac health. Virtually every cell in your body contains CoQ10, which is concentrated in the mitochondria. Heart cells have approximately 5,000 mitochondria each, more than any other cells. In addition, CoQ10 is a strong antioxidant, which can help prevent premature aging and free radical damage.

Today, numerous trials indicate CoQ10’s unique ability to support heart health and function. Clinical studies on CoQ10 suggest that it can promote optimal heart function and normal blood pressure levels. Our bodies produce CoQ10 naturally, but unfortunately, our CoQ10 level declines with age. By the time you reach your 40s, your body’s CoQ10 level may have dropped by as much as 30%. Taking statin drugs may also accelerate the loss of CoQ10 in your body.

But if you take CoQ10 or are thinking of doing so, imagine slicing off a tiny sliver of the pill or capsule, swallowing that minuscule piece, and throwing the rest of the supplement down the toilet. That’s shockingly close to what actually happens, because traditional CoQ10 is very poorly absorbed by the body. As a result, taking less than 200 mg a day of CoQ10 is unlikely to deliver the cardiac benefits you’re counting on.

Because I recommend CoQ10 to so many of my patients, I recently teamed up with premium supplement company Medix Select to create an all-natural CoQ10 supplement using an important nutrient delivery system, called BioPerine®. This special black pepper fruit extract maximizes bioavailability and benefits of CoQ10 — making it much more absorbable than traditional forms of CoQ10.

This new product, called Cotrexin™, is an advanced dietary supplement that contains 200 mg a day of CoQ10 and 1,000 mg a day of Omega-3 fish oil with BioPerine® efficiency. I hand-picked these ingredients to support heart health function, proper inflammatory response, circulatory health, energy production, and reduce oxidation of cholesterol.

Because I believe so strongly in Cotrexin™, I’ve provided you with more information on this natural support for maintaining cardiac health. And don’t forget to let us know how it worked for you. Please don’t put this off — your heart health is too important.

Yours in Health,

Dr. Chauncey Crandall
