The Anti-Aging Power of CoQ10

With all the talk about the importance of CoQ10 and its powerful anti-aging and disease prevention properties you’d think it would well known just where to find it, how to get it to the places in your body where you need it, and what it does.  Here’s a quick overview I found, http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/heart-failure/tc/coenzyme-q10-topic-overview:

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods, but levels are particularly high in organ meats such as heart, liver, and kidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines, mackerel, and peanuts.

In an anti-aging skin care product, CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant, promoting cellular energy production and functions best within an antioxidant network.  So make sure your coenzyme Q10 is paired with other powerful antioxidants in your product for maximum results. Tru Face Essence Ultra:This silky serum helps enhance skin firmness and elasticity, and prevent future signs of aging. Or there is another (click link below)  that promotes cellular energy and allows skin to rebound from daily oxidative stress.There are 3 fantastic CoQ10 products in the NS family: one with a link above and the last 2 shown here. (Please talk to me about getting a 25% discount on any of the products you find you might want to try.)

Ah ha!  It is another one of those antioxidants that works with other antioxidants to help prevent disease, help us look younger and feel younger.

Health Tip:  Which Whole Grain Is Healthiest?

We have all been trained to “read the labels” when we are making healthy food purchases at the market.  Recently I noticed that breads have so many grains now on their labels that I don’t know which one is the best choice.  I recently found an article in the Winter-Spring 2012 edition of the magazine “New Beauty” that explains the healthiest choices are Whole Grains ("100-percent whole wheat") and "White Whole Wheat" (unbleached white whole wheat , hard white whole wheat).  Isn’t that interesting that a wheat used in breads and pastas can be white as long as it is “unbleached” and make it to the healthiest choice list? If you are interested in knowing more about it, please comment here and I can provide you with more bread grain options!
