This NutriNeat article tells you more about CoQ10 enzyme and weight loss and its possible side effects.
The CoQ10 are fat soluble substances, that produce energy in our body. Many people, who want to lose weight fast, or need to reduce weight in order to keep their heart in a healthy state, take this enzyme. Some people say that CoQ10 and weight loss go hand in hand. Some also say that there might be problems if a person takes in too much CoQ10. Here is some information that will clear all your doubts.
Meaning Of CoQ10
CoQ10 or the Co enzyme Q10, which is also called the Ubiquinone (derived form the words ‘ubiquitous’ which means that ‘they are found everywhere’) or even Vitamin Q, is present in each and every cell of our body and they are the ones that are responsible for the production of energy in the mitochondria, which is found in the body cells and which in turn is responsible for the production of energy in the form of ATP. The CoQ10 are the ones that improve the activities of the enzymes present in the body and they are important for better health of the cells, the tissues and also the organs of our body. They are compounds which are naturally formed in our body.
This is a fat soluble substance, hence many people who suffer from heart problems and need to keep their weight low, take this enzyme. This happens because it stimulates the metabolism of the body. This enzyme is also used for providing help during heart attacks, during cancer, periodontal disease, and muscular dystrophy. Foods like meat, poultry products, and fish,are rich in this enzyme. Oils like soy, olive, coconut, sunflower, nuts like peanuts, walnuts, almonds, and vegetables like parsley, broccoli, fruits such as apple, oranges, grapefruits, etc, are also rich in CoQ10. If you have these foods daily and follow a healthy diet combined with exercising, you can lose weight fast.
Possible Weight Loss
The enzyme increases the metabolism rate in our body which burns up the food that we eat, faster.This enzyme is present more in the liver, pancreas, and the heart than in the lungs. The presence of CoQ10 not only improves the metabolism rate in our body, but also improves the immune system. Deficiency of the Co enzyme Q10, in an individual, reduces the level of metabolism due to which the person might face several problems related to weight. Presence of CoQ10 also keeps the heart in a good condition, which again is good for the weight of our body. This enzyme also lowers the blood pressure level.
If a person takes around 100mg or above of CoQ10, then they might suffer from insomnia. Taking more than the usual content can also cause liver problems in some people. If a person takes CoQ10 thinking that weight loss is somehow related, then they should be ready to face certain side effects such as headaches, heartburn, and fatigue. The person might also suffer from involuntary muscle movements or maybe diarrhea and some skin infection. If this enzyme is mixed with a blood thinning medicine, then there are chances that the person might suffer from prolonged bleeding. So one has to take the doctor’s permission before taking in CoQ10 for losing weight.
