Men’s Health and CoQ10

Just like women, men have unique nutritional needs and health risks. As men progress through adulthood, their nutritional needs change. Most men will benefit from regular supplementation with multivitamin and fish oil. The multivitamin is especially important for men who do not eat a whole foods-based diet, such as most men in their 20′s and even 30’s. For this age group, a simple regimen of one doze of multivitamin a day could be highly beneficial and easy to adhere to. What’s more, this is the age when most men reproduce, and nutrient status is a determining factor for sperm quality.

Many young men do strenuous exercise or they could be athletes and carry on daily heavy physical activities. In doing so, they deplete CoQ10, a natural antioxidant, synthesized by their body from the food they eat. CoQ10 is necessary for muscle recovery of these young men. It also offers cardiovascular support because it contributes to mitochondrial energy production in heart (and other) cells as such a supplement including CoQ10 is an important consideration for men’s nutritional health at this time.

As men move through their 30′s and 40′s, it becomes even more important to be proactive about health, as this is when early signs of health problems typically begin. CoQ10 helps transform food into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), supporting energy production. The ability to support healthy energy levels is especially important for men as they grow into their 30′s, 40′s, and beyond when energy levels may start to decrease.

Men over the age of 50 will additionally benefit from healthy strategies to support prostate health. Many men use of statin drugs to manage their cardiovascular health but while stain help them manage their cardiovascular health, they also inhibit the body’s natural production of CoQ10. So taking CoQ10 supplements is essential in maintaining men’s cardiovascular health by producing necessary mitochondrial energy and protecting against harmful effect of statin drugs!

Supplemental prostate support nutrients and botanicals, such as zinc, saw palmetto, and lycopene, can provide critical prostate health support at a vulnerable time in a man’s life.
