Our Phenomenal Heart
After losing a friend and mentor who died of a massive heart attack at the age of 40, we became very focused on speaking to women about the real heart risks that exist for us all. Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death for women over age 25 in the United States, regardless of race or ethnicity. We don't share this statistic to incite fear but simply to educate and hopefully to inspire some quiet reflection about the care of your phenomenal heart.
CoQ10 is used in the energy center of every cell in the body. Not only does CoQ10 scavenge and destroy free radicals that cause cardiovascular problems and heart disease, it sparks the heart’s energy production allowing it to pump more efficiently. When CoQ10 levels decline, energy wanes. CoQ10 exists naturally in food sources but in small doses primarily from meat.
Numerous studies, including extensive multi-year human studies, highlight the many heart protective, health promoting, and mitochondrial benefits of daily CoQ10 supplementation. At her vital way we are big fans of CoQ10 and we are particularly impressed with its ability to assure circulatory health and adequate energy levels; support optimal functioning of the heart muscle; protect against LDL cholesterol oxidation; and dramatically reduce heart incidents.
Once a woman reaches her late 40s (or earlier with some women entering peri-menopause well before this), the risk for heart disease increases with declining estrogen levels, particularly when combined with other risk factors like high stress levels, a sedentary lifestyle, repressed emotional pain, hormone imbalances, and blood sugar issues.Recognizing that heart tissue requires significant levels of mitochondrial ATP and therefore higher concentrations of CoQ10 means that proactively supporting the heart is good for us all.
We love the gentle energy increase that we feel when taking CoQ10 and believe that the fermented, vegetarian CoQ10 that we offer at her vital way is the best form, as it is identical to the CoQ10 produced by the body.We recommend taking1 capsule twice a day with a meal (for proper absorption because CoQ10 is a lipid antioxidant) to support the heart, energize workouts, and offer systemic mitochondrial support for changing hormones*.
