Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vital nutrient in the human body. CoQ10 is widely distributed in the human body and serves as a cofactor for the production of cellular energy in most human cells. As the name implies, a coenzyme is a factor that helps the function of an enzyme; enzymes are small proteins in the body that carry out nearly every chemical reaction. CoQ10 is made in our body and therefore for most people it is not essential to eat CoQ10 or take supplements, however CoQ10 status can become depleted because of various health conditions, medications and environmental factors.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a compound that helps to generate energy within the cells, which is why it’s so important in combating heart disease, poor brain function, and even cancer.

A new report from Sara Middleton, writing for www.naturalhealth365.com, tells of a peer-reviewed study in the journal Science Translational Medicine that is a bit scary. A substance called propionate (a salt from a short-chain fatty acid called propionic acid), which is commonly used as a preservative in baked goods to inhibit mold, increases insulin resistance–even at a “very low dose.” That’s bad news for us Type 2 diabetics, whose insulin resistance is already causing us problems. (But then, we should be frugal with baked goods in our diet, too!) The study, by Amir Tirosh, et al., was reported in the April 24, 2019, issue of the journal.
