It’s a heart medicine used around the world, and if your doctor doesn’t know about it, you can easily get it on your own; it could save your life.
If you have heart problems, you should know about a substance called coenzyme Q-10. It appears to be a powerful reenergizer of heart cells and can bring new hope to millions of people with heart disease, particularly those with congestive heart failure, in which heart muscle steadily weakens, causing the heart’s pumping function to deteriorate. The condition is very common, especially in older people, and may not respond to conventional treatments. It stems from various causes: long-standing high blood pressure, diabetes, viral diseases, alcohol abuse, and, most frequently, a heart attack or just plain everyday damage from the aging process. Impaired, the tiny heart cells no longer generate enough energy to orchestrate the forceful heart contractions that pump blood throughout the body. Because of heart muscle cells’ inefficiency, blood flow slows and heart function begins to fail. “Literally, heart failure is an energy-starved heart,” says one cardiologist. Typical symptoms are shortness of breath, fatigue, fluid in the lungs, and swelling of the ankles. Gradually, the overworked heart may give out and shut down, leading to the body’s steady deterioration and death. Congestive heart failure is epidemic in Western countries. It’s the number one reason for hospitalization in older Americans. Common treatment: drugs such as digitalis, diuretics, vasodilators, and ACE inhibitors. The ultimate cure: heart transplant. But there’s another common treatment that’s used throughout the world with great success. It reenergizes the heart by giving cells a renewed burst of energy. It is called coenzyme Q-10, and its miracles are legendary among some cardiologists.
