The heart is a simple organ, who’s main function is to pump blood
throughout the entire body.
Congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathy are diseases of
the heart muscle and can have several causes, like:
hypertension, repeated or severe heart attacks, viral infections
and infiltrative heart diseases like lupus or scleroderma.
In each case the disease weakens the heart muscle and disable it
to handle the amount of blood it receives from the body.
The heart tries to compensate for its weakened state by dilating
and beating faster. Ultimately, blood backs up into the lungs,
filling them with fluid.
This is called congestive heart failure. The patient starts to drawn
on his or her own fluid.
Weakening of the heart is called cardiomyopathy and is a very
severe case of congestive heart failure, characterized by a large
When the heart muscle is weakened, it places an increased
demand on the nutrients the heart cell need, in order to create
energy. Because of excessive use of these nutrients, the heart
muscle becomes depleted of CoQ10, which is the most important
nutrient for energy creation.
Patients who take this supplement are be able to replenish their
weakened heart muscle’s stores of CoQ10, generating more
energy and compensate for it’s weakened state.
Patients should continue to supplement their traditional medical
treatment over a long period of time.
Clinical studies on CoQ10, which involved 2,660 patients with
heart failure, resulted in nearly 80% improvement in three major
symptom categories. CoQ10 can be a significant helpful
supplement for the treatment of the heart muscle.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat – soluble vitamin and a strong
antioxidant. Coenzymes are cofactors, essential for a large
number of enzymatic reactions within the body.
CoQ10 is the cofactor for at least three very important enzymes,
used within the mitochondria, which is the furnace of the cell,
where its energy is produced.
Mitochondria enzymes are needed for the production of the
high – energy phosphate and adenosine triphosphate, upon
which all cellular functions depends.
It is in the mitochondria where the energy starts, but where also
dangerous by-products, free radicals, are created.
CoQ10 is very important to help neutralize free radicals and
most importantly, to create energy.
CoQ10 is produced by the body, but this is a complicated
process. It is also found in a variety of foods, like organic
meats, beef, sardines, mackerel and peanuts.
Doctors need to learn and understand how natural products
can help their patients. By supporting the natural function of
the body and trying to enhance its ability to perform at
optimal level ; only then everything possible is done to benefit
the healing process of the body.
