Micronutrient Mondays – **Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)**

Conenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 is part of a family called the ubiquinones and is a powerful antioxidant! Humans can synthesize CoQ10 so it’s considered nonessential, but nonetheless, deficiencies can arise. One of the biggest risk factors for deficiency is treatment with a cholesterol lowering statin medication, like Lipitor. It’s established that patients on statin medications have reduced CoQ10 levels. Some studies have shown statins can drop CoQ10 levels by as much as 40 percent.

Alternating Hot and Cold Showers AKA Hydrotherapy

Hot and cold showers use hot and cold water temperatures to create a makeshift “pump” in your circulatory system. Your blood vessels will dilate when exposed to hot water and then constrict when exposed to cold water, therefore giving your circulation a boost. This means greater flow through your blood vessels and lymphatic system. These networks of vessels transport oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells to your tissues and cells and remove wastes (among other important functions)! This can be used for Detoxification, Anti-aging, Skin health, Immune Health & Cellulite.
