It seems that there is some type of new wonder drug gaining popularity every week, claiming to fix any problem you’ve got. Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is one of the recent contenders. But while the benefits of the supplement are advertised as a strong antioxidant, the knowledge that CoQ10 needs NADH in order for the body to experience these benefits is usually omitted.
NADH is the body’s most powerful antioxidant. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride is biologically ranked coenzyme 1, the highest level of coenzyme in the body. This means that it is the coenzyme, or cofactor, needed for numerous other enzymes that are involved in cellular energy production. It is also essential for cellular development and acts as an antioxidant. Scientists have acknowledged that it is the body’s most important antioxidant to protect cells from damage caused by harmful substances. ENADA is the stable form of NADH that can be taken as a supplement for the benefit of users suffering from a multitude of diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and diabetes. However users who are perfectly healthy benefit from NADH’s effects, such as increased energy, increased libido, weight loss, and immunity boost. Aside from having tons of health benefits of its own, it also works to regenerate other important antioxidants, such as glutathione, vitamin C, and CoQ10.
One of the coenzymes that need NADH for energy production is Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is frequently thought to be an antioxidant. Commercially available products boast the positive effects it has on the body when ingested, most frequently increased energy and enhancing the immune system. It’s a coenzyme that naturally occurs in the body, producing energy in the mitochondria in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It is known to have many other benefits to the body and supplements are taken to cure migraines, heart failure, gum disease, Parkinson’s disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, among other ailments. However, when Co Q10 is ingested as a supplement, it is in its oxidized form. Therefore, it is not an antioxidant, and completely useless to the body. Only when it is in an antioxidant form do the health benefits exist.
Only when CoQ10 is combined with NADH does it become effective and beneficial to the body. NADH modifies the Co Q10, biologically ranked coenzyme 10, in the body, reducing it into an antioxidant and also an energy-producing compound. So before you run out and purchase a bottle of Coenzyme 10 supplements, remember that you’re wasting your money if you aren’t taking it simultaneously with NADH.
