CoQ10 – an alternative treatment for cancer

Interest in coenzyme Q10 as a possible treatment for cancer began in 1961, when it was found that some cancer patients had a lower than normal amount of it in their blood. Cancer is both the result and a significant cause of free-radical damage related to inflammation. A growing awareness of this critical and intimate association has led scientists to explore ways of controlling cancer growth by limiting free-radical damage. As an antioxidant, the advonced form of coenzyme Q10 – Ubiquinol – may help prevent cancer from developing. (more…)

Since iron  plays an important role  in regulation of metabolism and synthesize some vital substances (e.g. DNA, white blood cells and the brain chemical), iron deficiency also damages our ability to think and weakens our resistance to infection.
