5 Dangerous CoQ10 Deficiency Symptoms

Updated on May 18, 2012

CoQ10 Deficiencies Can Affect Your Health

A lack of CoQ10 on your body can lead to poor health. When you reach the age of 40 your body has a hard time making enough. Taking supplements with Ubiquinol (CoQ10) can get your levels back up again.

CoQ10 Deficiencies

Ubiquinol Suplements Can Help

Let's be honest: few people have even heard about CoQ10. What is it exactly, and what are its benefits? CoQ10, or Coenzyme Q10, is an enzyme that is extremely healthy and invigorating for your body. The most common supplemental form of it is b>, which is a supplement and serves to re-energize and replenish your body's cells, especially those in your muscular system. It's quite a marvelous enzyme, almost miraculously increasing your energy levels, giving you more vigor, providing your heart and muscles with more health, and overall making you feel stronger and think more clearly. But what are the CoQ10 deficiency symptoms, and how can you tell if you need to take supplements to increase the enzyme in your body?

There are a few indications your body will give you when it knows it needs more CoQ10, and one of the most obvious of these is fatigue. When you feel exhausted after only walking around for a few minutes, or upon waking after a good night's sleep don't feel you can even get out of bed, then that's a sign that you may need some Ubiquinol supplements. With this fatigue, which is both mental and physical, will come other problems such as lapses in memory, a hard time focusing, more stress and emotional break downs, depression,, and irritability. When you start feeling these CoQ10 deficiency symptoms you should immediately check with your doctor to see if you should begin taking supplements.

Deficiencies in CoQ10 May Be Related To Fibromyalgia and Migraines

Another indicator that you should be taking Ubiquinol supplements is when your body experiences chronic or increased pain. A CoQ10 deficiency will often bring about headaches or even migraines, as well as pain in your jaws, muscles, and joints. You could even develop a condition called fibromyalgia where your whole body hurts and even the slightest touch can leave you in acute pain. Taking CoQ10 supplements is your way out if you start to experience any of these symptoms.

Your Immune System Relies on CoQ10

Without enough of this important enzyme your body's immune system also suffers. Without taking Ubiquinol (CoQ10) supplements when you need to you could end up with all sorts of colds, coughs, flu, and other sicknesses, because your body simply lacks the energy from the CoQ10 to fight them. The cells and antibodies that need to be produced are not produced, and your whole body suffers. A CoQ10 deficiency could only be the start of a host of other problems.

Your Heart May Pay The Price for Low CoQ10

Lowered levels of CoQ10 can also lead to heart problems. When your body has too little CoQ10 and you aren't taking supplements, you may experience inflammation that causes high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The next step after that is heart disease and even heart failure.

In extreme cases you could even develop a neurological condition. Many cases of Parkinson's, Huntington's, sclerosis, and myalgic encephalomyelitis have been connected with a lack of the vital CoQ10 enzymes in the body and the failure to take supplements to fight the problem.

Find Out What Your Body Has Been Missing

Now that you know exactly what risks you might be taking when not ensuring your body has enough CoQ10, you can work to change that and start taking supplements if you need them. Ubiquinol (CoQ10) is safe to take with virtually no side effects. Of course, you should always check with your doctor to find out the proper dosage for your situation. There's no reason to suffer through sicknesses that are avoidable when you can have renewed and increased energy.
