Antioxidant Supplements Like CoQ10, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Alpha Lipoic Acid Improve Health



we all are bombarded with so many different free radicals that essentially damage our DNA and that's why we get increased cancer risks when we get antioxidant excuse me when we get oxidative damage and so getting as many antioxidants in your body as possible is really really useful there are things like you know coq10 is a really common one this tends to have a lot of cardiac benefits this is a liquid one that they have here that's actually a natural form of mixed gamma tocopherol is that I love because a lot of people just don't like pills and they're kind of big vitamin E like they're like the big soft gel caps so you know one dropper full of this it's 400 IU's and that's really easy to just drop into anything else this is a nice full-spectrum natural vitamin E vitamin E also has some blood thinning effects it's really neuro protective it does protect against oxidative damage just like all the antioxidants do it really helps protect your red blood cells and your white blood cells and so in that way it kind of prevents anemia because they don't your cells don't break as easily and keeps immune function strong and let's see and there's um it keeps your blood from being sticky there's a very anti platelet and anti-inflammatory effect to vitamin E I think that's really useful vitamin C is our classic it's another great antioxidant lots of different forms but boosts immunity keeps our skin intact promotes healing of skin cartilage blood vessels and joints it's a good fatigue fighter not a lot of people know but vitamin C is really important in adrenal health and production of cellular energy and it also helps prevent iron deficiency anemia because it helps you absorb iron so in those three ways it can really improve energy and it does protect against heart disease Linus Pauling talked a lot about this it actually helps clean out the arteries and it helps keep LDLs from oxidizing and it's very anti carcinogenic in order to get the kind of cardio protective effects of see you've got a really dose higher so like general immune stuff 1 to 3 grams a day like vitamin C 4 cardiovascular protective effects you'll see more like six to ten grams a day you've got to do divided doses that will definitely induce a loose stool if you just kind of start with that for most people and some people still couldn't tolerate that much orally and we'll do it IV but most people will tolerate that just fine so take away four vitamin C is supports immunity healthy stress response decreases allergies promotes good energy keeps our skin vessels joints and muscles healthy and it's protective against cardiovascular disease and cancer a couple things about coq10 Oh anyone on a statin needs to be on cookie ten I don't know like why this isn't public information or why it's just not on every statin label statins are hmg-coa reductase inhibitors they stop the production of coq10 in the body so there's other ways that I would much prefer to get people's cholesterol levels down but if they're going to be on a statin they really need to be taking coq10 at least 200 milligrams a day and there's zero toxicity to cook you ten it's just expensive so you can dose four hundred eight hundred milligrams a day have at it I say at least 200 milligrams a day and then alpha lipoic acid is a universal antioxidant that increases energy but it's also really great for diabetics in particular because it really helps with nerve damage and it helps with glycosylation reactions which are reactions when there's too much sugar in the body and there's proteins that start cross-linking this happens a lot with uncontrolled sugar issues and so alpha lipoic acid is ideal for a diabetic person but it's great for all of us as we age and it's the unique thing about alpha lipoic acid is that it's both water and fat soluble we're usually like vitamin C's water soluble vitamins fat soluble alpha lipoic acid does both and they all kind of help recycle each other and work synergistically so it's kind of nice too for alpha lipoic acid I think 600 milligrams is a good dose

  1. Thanks for your knowledge !!! Great stuff , so excited to get healthy again 😊😊😊

  2. What is a good supplement for type 2 diabetic to take

  3. I make all my facial line as well as other products loaded with vitamins. I understand that the vitamins and minerals in or food are nothing by time of arrival, also my water depleted due to RO! But then I look at all these supplements and wonder, except for iron, multi, probiotic… I mean  don't have half of what is listed here, yet my cupboard upstairs +2 downstairs and shelf is full! I heard this is not right as your body will eventually stop making them naturally??? It is a business, and impossible to take everything on counter!

  4. can we mix vitamin C, E and coq10 and apply them topically on my face for removing lines?

  5. Glad I found this video. Which of the Antioxidants is recommended for someone with Crohn's? Remember Crohn's is a disease that makes it hard for the digestive area to absorb nutrients so I would be interested in the one that would be easiest to absorb.

  6. Yes

  7. can one take coq10 with evening primrose oil

  8. Very informative! So thankful for these videos. I get confused about (g) vs mg though. For instance; I'd like to have more enrgy and up the dose of vitamin c, but I take in pill form and each one is 500mg. I take 2 per day right now.

  9. AWESOME VID! You answered a lot of the questions I had regarding supplements I'm currently taking. Many thanks.

  10. @magicadespell56 There is one skin care product I can recommend because it's manufactured by a good friend of mine and she is quite the purisit. It is a mircodermabrasion product, and I've used it, and it's quite good. You can also watch the video on her website, which I produced. Go to microdermx (dot) com

    Maybe later I can do some videos on skin care. Thank you for the suggestion. 🙂

  11. i would love a video on the most healthy makeup/skin care- i know a lot of wemon that take care of them selves but dont take into consideration the cosmetics they use- the skin being the largest organs sucks everything in- cover fx has a omega 3 primer with lots of anitoxdents in it so after doing a little a little homework i found a few – if you could post a list thats good for the skin- as far as anti age is concerned i know gals and guys that would line up to watch your videos-x shelly
