Should I be taking CoQ10?

CoQ10, what a great supplement! It is an antioxidant that is vital for muscle maintenance, as it helps cells grow and stay healthy. It is also important for heart health, as the heart is a muscle itself! There is even research being done to determine if CoQ10 can help with migraines!

Have you heard the side effect “muscle pain and weakness” that tends to be listed on medications such as statins for cholesterol? This can occur because these medications (and many others!) can decrease the amount of CoQ10 in the body. If you are currently taking any prescription medications, be sure to ask your chiropractor if you should be supplementing with CoQ10 to combat long and short-term side effects!
