Energy for your Cells
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like compound which is produced naturally in the body. It is an essential element for many health systems since it is required for the proper functioning of every single cell in the body. In order to sustain enough energy to perform bodily functions the mitochondria in our cells use fat and other nutrients to create useable sources of energy- this critical conversion process is only made possible by the presence of adequate amounts of CoQ10. As a result, having healthy levels of cellular energy is highly dependent on the body’s levels of CoQ10. Furthermore, Coq10 is an extremely potent antioxidant which has been used in medical practice to protect cells from the effects of aging and free radicals.
Although the body creates its own CoQ10, it does not always do so consistently or adequately. As we age, or become ill, our bodies can become less efficient at producing this essential compound, and a lack of CoQ10 is associated with decreased energy, the damaging effects of oxidative stress, declining cognition, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, heart disease, muscle conditions, and other health ailments. The fact that CoQ10 is so important for cellular energy and proper cell functioning means that in order to stay healthy it critical to make sure you are balancing your CoQ10 levels. With the aid of a medical professional CoQ10 Intramuscular or Subcutaneous Injections are an excellent way of quickly increasing levels in the body and optimizing conditions for increased cellular energy production and health.
Aside from CoQ10’s energy promoting and antioxidant effects in the body, studies have also shown its supplementation to improve heart health, lower side effects of statins, maintain optimal pH levels, protect cognitive health, combat cancer, promote fertility, ease symptoms of autism, and much more. Some of the positive effects of a CoQ10 injection can often be felt quite quickly. Many athletes will supplement with CoQ10 injections prior to intense physical exercise, as its energy promoting effects can be useful for peak performance levels.

Methods of Administration
The bioavailability of CoQ10 when ingested orally is quite poor due to malabsorption and difficulties passing the GI tract. In order to facilitate the proper uptake of CoQ10 by peripheral tissues in the body it is necessary to raise blood levels of Coq10 many times over. This is best achieved through either Intravenous, Intramuscular, or Subcutaneous Injections. At Emerald Wellness, we often opt to supplement CoQ10 with Intramuscular or Subcutaneous Injections since this method of delivery is less invasive than an IV and one can derive the same benefits. If a patient is already receiving IV therapy for other nutritional compounds the CoQ10 may be added to the IV mix or administered through an IV push. Although the bioavailability of oral CoQ10 can be poor it is sometimes still advised to supplement Orally as well as Intravenously in order to increase levels in the body. It can also help to supplement with L-Carnitine in order to increase the effectiveness of CoQ10 within the body.
