Super-Nutrient Battles Migraines, Fatigue, Diabetes, More

Many studies show the effectiveness of a single nutrient that is largely ignored by most people.  Called Coenzyme Q10 (or CoQ10), this amazing nutrient offers help for a number of health conditions. A potent antioxidant, it also aids the body in the creation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a substance that produces energy needed by all cells of the body.  Here are 11 proven benefits of CoQ10:

1. It reverses fatigue. As we age, our internal levels of CoQ10 are lessened.  In numerous studies, CoQ10 has a dramatic effect on energy levels.  In one study, 94 percent of people taking 150 mg had significantly more energy within three months.  In my experience, many people notice results much faster than that.

2.  It cuts the incidence of migraine in half. In a study cited by Stephen Sinatra, M.D., author of The Coenzyme Q10 Phenomenon, women susceptible to migraines had half as many migraines after taking 200 mg of CoQ10 for three months.

3.  Coenzyme Q10 protects the pancreas from diabetes. Because CoQ10 is a potent antioxidant, it mops up pancreas-damaging free radicals before they can damage insulin-producing cells, thereby helping to protect against diabetes.   Results were obtained with 60 mg. daily.

Keep reading to learn how CoQ10 fights cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and more.

I heard if you take 2000 units of vitamin D it will rid you of having miragraines. I know a couple whom both suffered this and cured it with vitamin D.

Thank you for the article. Forwarding to a friend and going to try the Coenzyme Q10 my self after I check if it's ok with my doctor to do so so it doesn't counter react with different medications. Always check with your doctor first before trying anything.

Sorry, just wanted to add that, of course, there are periods in our life where we feel a bit down, phisically and/or mentally, and to know that you can get better with the help of these substances is a great gift... Love to everyone!
