This photo is for the group Macro Monday's and this week the theme is "In a Bottle".
This is my bottle of Co Q 10. Supposedly Co Q 10 is to help give you energy and helps with keeping your muscles strong... or that was what I was under the impression of. I can tell you that it's not helped with either after months of use... unless I'm actually dead... and in that case it's helped!! :0
Here's what Web MD says about Co Q 10:
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules.
Many claims are made about CoQ10. It is said to help heart failure, as well as cancer, muscular dystrophy, and periodontal disease. It is also said to boost energy and speed recovery from exercise. Some people take it to help reduce the effects certain medicines can have on the heart, muscles, and other organs.
