Two new studies have shown how the energy-enhancing nutrient, coenzyme Q10, can make the human heart much stronger - even in patients with heart failure.
It can hardly come as a surprise that coenzyme Q10, a widely used energy-enhancing supplement, makes you feel more alert. What is amazing is that two new studies show that it can also give the heart muscle significantly more power. One study was carried out on a normal healthy group of elderly people, while the other study was conducted on heart failure patients. In both studies the heart muscles of the Q10-treated participants obtained significantly more contractile strength - that it its ability to contract - and the number of people who died of cardiovascular complications was reduced by over 50%.
