Low Levels of CoEnzyme Q10 Increase Your Risk of Breast Cancer
A study* done in 2011 that followed over 1000 Chinese women found that women with lower levels of CoQ10 have higher rates of breast cancer.
CoQ10 is also useful for supporting women with cancer related fatigue, cancer treatment related “chemobrain” and to protect the heart from damage from chemotherapy drugs such as Adriamycin.
What else increases risk of breast cancer (and other cancers too)?
- Low Levels of Vitamin D
- High levels of inflammation
- High Blood Sugar, Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes
- Too much body fat, especially around the belly
- Less than 7-9 hours of sleep per night
- Less than 150 minutes (30 min 5x/week) of moderate exercise per week
The recommended dose of CoQ10 or CoQNol is 100-200mg per day.
I also recommend daily CoQNol as part of an anti-aging program because it fuels the mitochondria, the energy powerhouse inside every one of our cells!
Why do I recommend CoQNol rather than CoQ10???
CoQ10 comes in two forms, CoQ10 as ubiquinone and CoQNol as ubiquinol which is more effective at raising blood levels of CoQ10.
The newer form CoQnol (Ubiquinol) shows improved absorption and availability over CoQ10 (Ubiquinone). I recommend CoQnol (Ubiquinone) to get the most benefit.

CoQ10 as CoQNol is also included in these Comprehensive Longevity Kits:
