Coenzyme Q10 is a nutritional supplement is a very effective natural therapy to lower elevated blood pressure. In this blog post, I am going to summarize a study that demonstrates just how amazingly effective coenzyme Q10 is for people with hypertension.
Dr. Peter Langsjoen is a cardiologist that I met about a decade ago and I have followed his work very closely ever since. Since Dr. Langsjoen is a cardiologist, he has a lot of patients with high blood pressure. A number of years ago, he selected 109 of his patients with hypertension and added coenzyme Q10 to their existing medications. The average dose used was 225 mg/day. In most of these patients, the average time from the initial of diagnosis of high blood pressure was 9.2 years. Many patients were taking 2 or 3 blood pressure-lowering medications to keep their blood pressure within acceptable ranges.
How effective was coenzyme Q10? Within the first 6 months, 51% of the patients were able to discontinue from 1 to 3 blood pressure medications, with an average time of 4.4 months.
As a pharmacist, I have to be cautious about recommending CoQ10 to patients who are taking blood pressure medications. I emphasize that they must communicate with their physician because coenzyme Q10 is so effective, they will need to reduce the dose of their medications and/or discontinue them at some point. It is illegal for me to advise people about changing the dose of their medications. That must be done by a physician. However, I feel my passion is to educate people about natural therapies so I share this study and encourage them to discuss it with their doctor.
The title of the study I have discussed is Treatment of Essential Hypertension with Coenzyme Q10.
Every household should have DMSO on hand. DMSO, which is available as a liquid or in a rub-on gel, is a miracle treatment for all kinds injuries. Trainers of most athletic teams are aware of DMSO's ability to rapidly heal sports injuries and I've been using it personally for over 30 years. I introduced DMSO to the owner/coach of my CrossFit gym a couple of years ago and he immediately began using it on athletes with minor aches and pains. My blog gives me the opportunity to publicize the many benefits of DMSO to a much wider audience. So, here is the DMSO story. Read more
In October 2014 I spoke at the ACAM medical/health conference in Las Vegas. In the exhibit hall, I spoke with Brad Weeks, MD at a booth who was promoting a natural anti-inflammatory, pain relieving product called SOUL. Dr. Weeks gave me a sample of SOUL and told me about the product's benefits. I told Dr. Weeks that I am a "science-based guy" and that I wanted to see scientific studies that would document the product's claimed benefits. Well, it turns out a large number of scientific studies that have been published which document and explain the benefits of SOUL. After reading and evaluating over 80 studies on SOUL and its ingredients, I'm convinced that it is a very effective natural product for the relief of pain and inflammation. In this post, I want to explain why the traditional anti-inflammatory and pain medications are so terribly harmful and then review SOUL's benefits and explain how and why it works. Read more
Biomarkers by William Evans, Ph.D. and Irwin Rosenberg, MD is one of the most important
books I have ever read. The authors present 10 of the most reliable biological markers of aging and show that all ten of these markers are directly regulated by muscle mass. Weight training or strength/resistance training is the key. The authors claim that people do not need to become frail and weak as they age. They have shown that people of any age can engage in strength training programs and significantly REVERSE the biological markers of aging.Read more

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is
one of the body's most important antioxidants and it is also required
for energy production in all cells. In this post, I will review a study
that reveals coenzyme Q10's remarkable ability to slow down the aging
process. Coenzyme Q10 is truly a remarkable life extension nutritional
supplement. I will also explain why most CoQ10 products have very low
rates of absorption. My readers can order highly absorable Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold at 20% discount.
CoQ10 Dramatically Extends Life Span: Studies
evaluating things that influence lifespan are difficult to conduct in
humans because they take too long. Instead, researchers use small animal
models which compresses the story into a much shorter time scale. I
want to discuss an experiment done with mice that reveals the power of
coenzyme Q10. This experiment was conducted by Emile Bliznakov, MD who
subsequently wrote a book titled The Miracle Nutrient: Coenzyme Q10.
In this post, which is primarily directed to healthcare professionals, I am presenting a remarkable new therapy called Bemer. Bemer is a remarkable life extension/anti-aging therapy. Physicians, chiropractors and other healthcare professionals who are using a
Bemer in their practice find that it creates a new source of revenue. In addition to customers paying for Bemer sessions, many people end up purchasing a Bemer for home use. Having a Bemer also brings new patients into their practices.Read more
Ruth Myers (shown in photo) is 91 years old and still doing strength training. Gerontologists study aging people and the aging process. Several years ago Italian scientist Dr. Ravaglia and his colleagues designed a unique study to determine the most important factor for healthy aging. A group of 75 HEALTHY elderly people ranging from 90 to 106 years old were selected for this study.
The researchers evaluated an enormous amount of data including anthropometric data (height, weight, skin-folk thickness, body circumference at the waist, hip & chest), a wide range of blood values, as well as aspects related to diet, nutrition and lifestyle.Read more
