To improve the effect of the Q10 supplement, three important vitamins, B1, B12 and E. are added. They are described below.
Vitamin B1 supports the body’s energy level and, similarly like Q10, is good for the heart. Suffiecient
intake of B vitamins is also needed for Q10 production.
Vitamin B12 activates the natural energy level in the body and can provide an extra energy boost. Just like vitamin B1, vitamin B12 is needed for the body’s own production of coenzyme Q10. Vitamin B12 also supports the production of red blood cells that trasnport oxygen to our organs.
Vitamin E, similar to Q10, helps protect the cells against chemical compunds that cause oxidative stress. Because Q10 ‘recycles’ vitamin E into its original form and is given in a high dosage, it can function more effectively. Vitamin E also helps retain muscle tissue.
Optimal fat burning
Q10 functions as a sort of ‘bellows’ in the mitochondria, helping to optimalise the burning of fatty acids. It is found in small quantities in our daily diets. It is therefore recommended as a supplement. It is used in combination with Carnitine by people who want to stimulate fat burning.
Use in combination with statins
Cholesterol lowering medications (statins) have the side effect of blocking Q10 production. Long-term use of these medications can lead to a lower concentration of Q10 in the body’s cells and lower energy levels. People using statins therefore often supplement their diets with a Q10 supplement.
Q10 works as a strong antioxidant and protects the cells against oxidative stress and aging. It ‘recycles’ other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E, enabling them to work more efficiently in the body. It is often used in various skin care products, such as facial creams, because it works as an antioxidant that slows aging.
