Along with my multivitamins, minerals, and fish oils, CoQ10 is another supplement I take every day. CoQ10 has valid research that it is a powerful cancer fighter. Researchers in Tokyo gave rats a carcinogen that promotes colon cancer. The rats were divided into three groups. One group was fed a regular diet. The second group got a low dose of CoQ10. The third got a medium dose.
Both of the groups that received CoQ10 had reductions in abnormal crypts (an early sign of colon cancer) of up to 77%. Ultimately, the results of this study suggested that CoQ10 held cancer in check even when exposed to this carcinogen.
Researchers in Denmark studied a group of breast cancer patients. They gave them CoQ10 plus a combination of other antioxidants and essential fatty acids. The result? The entire group had a partial remission of the cancer. But here’s where things get very interesting…Two of the patients received larger doses of CoQ10 (390 mg). Their tumors disappeared. Here’s what the researchers said regarding one of the patients: “After three months, the patient was in excellent clinical condition and there was no residual tumor tissue.”
Remarkable isn’t it?
Another study done at the University of Texas at Austin documented 10 cases of cancer patients who unexpectedly survived when treated with CoQ10. It works by blocking the free radicals that can ultimately damage the DNA in your cells. It also helps re-energize the immune system cells that get suppressed by cancer. It restores their ability to fight back and attack the cancer cells.
The only natural source of CoQ10 is red meat, especially organ meat. But today’s commercially-raised, grain-fed beef is a poor source. Even worse, many popular drugs — especially cholesterol-lowering drugs like statins — cause your levels of CoQ10 to plunge.
I recommend getting 50-100 mg of the CoQ10 daily. I use Nanocell Q by Metagenics. Order @ www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
