NOW Foods - Krill & CoQ10 Heart Support - 60 Softgels
Effective Heart Protection from the Cellular LevelPeople have been clamoring for fish oil because they know that it contains omega-3 fatty acids, known for making the heart function well. The health supplement industry is churning out multiple fish oil products, trying to get a chunk of a sizeable market. But consumers should know that not all omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils are alike. For faster absorption, they must look for fish oil from krill. Matched with CoQ10, the compound that provides energy to cells, Now Foods Krill & CoQ10 Heart Support softgels might just be the best product where heart health is concerned. It is also packaged in a safe and healthy manner because it does not contain dairy, egg, wheat, soy, and gluten. And for just two softgels a day, you get assured of a healthy heart and a healthy body.
- Protects the heart
- Prevents cardio-vascular disease
- Easy-to-absorb omega 3’s
- No dairy, egg, wheat, soy & gluten
- Just two softgels a day
May Help Prevent and Reduce InflammationOnce absorbed in the body, omega-3 fatty acids change into hormones that stimulate prostaglandins, anti-inflammatory substances that prevent and reduce inflammation within the body. When this happens, one might find relief from joint aches, such as from those suffering from diseases like arthritis.
May Improve Mood and Fertility IssuesOmega-3’s don’t just work in the heart. They are also helpful in other organs like the brain because it reduces inflammation in that area too. It also releases hormones in that organ that makes one calm and relaxed.
CoQ10 is a compound that rescues cells from oxidative damage. Unfortunately, the body produces them less and less as it ages. This low production causes cells to be unhealthy. The same is true with women’s egg cells and men’s sperm cells, the ones that are responsible for conception. This could be corrected with a CoQ10 supplement and men and women can produce healthy reproductive cells this way.
May Help Lower CholesterolKrill oil reduced cholesterol among those who took it as a supplement in an experiment. With reduced cholesterol, one avoids the risk of a stroke or a seizure. It also makes any physical activity less taxing.
Improves Skin and PhysiqueThe largest organ, the skin, is very vulnerable because it can easily be damaged from within and without. Improper diet and too much sun exposure are just two of the forces that make them vulnerable. But by taking a supplement with CoQ10 that also protects skin cells, one may see an improvement in the skin’s appearance as it becomes smoother and younger-looking. CoQ10 also fights the free radicals in the muscles and prevent them from becoming weak. CoQ10 supplementation encourages them to be strong, improving one’s athletic performance or any activity that requires physical strength.
May Help Maintain Good Blood Sugar LevelsCoQ10 is also known for making the body sensitive to insulin and may help in the regulation of healthy blood sugar levels. In fact, a study shows that subjects who already have uncontrolled blood sugar levels have witnessed how their blood sugar levels decreased after being treated with CoQ10 supplements. It seems that this substance has a way of converting blood sugar into energy and thus not storing them in the blood.
