How can CoQ10 make it easier to quit cigarettes?
by S. D. Wells
(NaturalNews) No matter whom you are, your heart beats about 100,000 times a day, fueling your entire cardiovascular system. When coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) levels get depleted, your heart strains to get its job done and your entire body suffers. This manifests and results in what seem to be "mysterious symptoms" that most allopathic doctors just can't put their finger on, so they put a "prescription" on it instead. Are you experiencing chronic fatigue, numbing dull pains or decreases in mental functions? This is not just about smokers and the elderly, as this addresses every human being whose heart beats one million times in ten days. It's time to consider natural solutions to seemingly "complex problems."
A recent case report has demonstrated that CoQ10 may help reverse even extreme neurodegenerative diseases, even if you're a 75-year-old man with ALS - amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease). People remember Lou Gehrig, the New York Yankee star who had to retire from baseball at 35 due to ALS. His farewell speech at Yankee stadium still rings out as one of sport's most touching moments ever. He died shortly after. That rare and extreme form of neurodegenerative disease affects the musculoskeletal nerve impulses that control function. It starts with cramping, twitching and weakness and then spreads quickly, and in two to five years you can't even swallow food.
Recently, a Japanese medical scientist allowed colleagues to do a clinical evaluation of CoQ10 for ALS on him. He had been diagnosed with onset ALS in the year 2000. By 2005, it had progressed to the point of interfering with his most common mundane activities. He was treated with a highly bioavailable form of CoQ10. His improvements were significant, with most of his voluntary motor activity returning, along with his grip. This scientist/patient was still surviving and managing when the CoQ10 study was reported in the September 2012 edition of The Open Nutraceuticals Journal. Alive and kicking - the scientist lives on, cruising past the 80-year mark in 2012. If CoQ10 treatment can do this for ALS, what might it do for other neurological diseases such as MS (multiple sclerosis), Parkinson's or Alzheimer's diseases?
Parkinson's is neurodegenerative and so is cigarette addiction Pesticides In your food, irradiated food and, yes, cigarettes - all contribute to muscle breakdown, loss of fine motor skills, memory loss and cancer. Most smokers do not "watch" what they eat and consume everything from Monsanto's genetically modified foods to microwaveable boxes and bowls of processed, irradiated food. Many people with Parkinson's now were ex-smokers or even still smoke. It's a cold hard fact that the more you are exposed to pesticides, cigarette smoke and radiation, the higher your risk of neurological disease.
Here's the correlation from the study: "Parkinson disease (PD) is associated with progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, as well as with more-widespread neuronal changes that cause complex and variable motor and nonmotor symptoms. Recent rapid advances in PD genetics have revealed a prominent role for mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathogenesis of the disease, and the products of several PD-associated genes, including SNCA, Parkin, PINK1, DJ-1, LRRK2 and HTR2A, show a degree of localization to the mitochondria under certain conditions. Impaired mitochondrial function is likely to increase oxidative stress and might render cells more vulnerable to this and other related processes, including excitotoxicity [Bold added for emphasis]."
A complex interplay occurs between mitochondria and other cellular machinery that affects cell survival, as mitochondria not only have a key role in electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation but are also the main cellular source of free radicals, and they are involved in calcium homeostasis and the regulation and instigation of cell-death pathways.

We are talking about cell death here. This is what CoQ10 can reverse, if you get the right quality. First, though, you must learn the dirty little secret of the CoQ10 supplement "industry" called "cis-form." They won't tell you if its not "trans-form," instead they make synthetic "cis-form" CoQ10, and you might as well be swallowing a breath mint. You see, it's not on the label. There's no data proving its effectiveness or its safety. To make things even worse, much of the ingredients besides the synthetics of cis-form come from tobacco, so do you want to be taking that if you are not a smoker, or worse, just having quit cigarettes? What a scam!
You have to get high-quality CoQ10, and then you can experience all the benefits. Remember, quality is everything. Find "Trans-form" CoQ10 made with yeast fermentation - it's identical to what is produced naturally within the body, and it yields the most effective, bio-available form. Here's the good news heading your way.
With high-quality CoQ10, you may:
• Energize your heart and keep it pumping strong.
• Boost brain power and provide mental clarity.
• Provide cellular energy and combat fatigue.
• Beat back harmful free radicals that have accumulated in your body! That's cancer armor!
CoQ10 affects the function of ALL cells in the body, making it essential for the health of all human tissues and organs. CoQ10 particularly affects the cells that are the most metabolically active, like those of the heart and immune system. Think how much this would assist smokers who are trying to quit cigarettes and nicotine. (http://www.thorne.com)
Free yourself from cellular death and cigarettes Face it: the chemicals in commercial cigarettes create neurological problems. If you are over 45 years of age, CoQ10 is ultra important. If you smoke and you're over 45, it's super important to stop smoking and research CoQ10. Quitting smoking might not be as hard as you think, if you follow the right path. There is a "yellow brick road" paved for you, and it's called 14AndOut - Stop Smoking Naturally in 14 Days.
This could be the best year of your life yet, so just quit cigarettes and take care of your heart. You could live to be 110, happy, healthy, safe and wealthy! Start juicing raw, organic vegetables daily and use a smoothie blender to blend organic fruit with organic juices, spring water and organic lemon or lime juice. Change the way you feel, heal and reach your potential. It's time to be organic, the way you were born to be!
