“All truth goes through three steps:
First it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violently opposed;
Finally, it is accepted as self-evident.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer –
There have been monumental breakthroughs in recent years through clinical research about health, but that information is not getting to the public because the healthcare industry is big powerful and in charge of a 3 trillion, 350 billion industry that is growing and they want to keep it that way.
My mission is to enlighten people about how to be healthy while spending less money, and experiencing less pain.
I have been studying nutrition, supplements, and what really makes you healthy for thousands of hours over the last 38 years. Studying this field for that long gives me the ability to sift through to the truth, after reading so many research papers. The ones with all the details are usually financed by a neutral entity.
Then there are widely distributed articles where a claim is made that a nutrient or supplement has no effect on your health. These articles are well written and can convince you that they are true, but they often leave out an important element of the study, like the dosage. The dosage is so low that there will be no result. It is difficult to find all the details on these studies and also who finances them.
The way things are going in the health field, it is about time I share what I know. When you study something for 38 years, the real truths become apparent. I can document everything I say and if you want to discuss issues or want more documentation, let me know and I will gather more.
It will make me happy if people know a better way to get and stay healthy, give me a chance to explain things in a few emails and then make your own decision.
What is Going On as We Age
I have had the rude awakening that Nature doesn’t really need us once we have offspring and take care of them long enough so they can continue the process and perpetuate our species. We hit our peak at 26 and once we are 40 we are in free fall, because really we aren’t needed for many more years, in the basic scheme of the universe.
But we know we can contribute incredible things after 40 and maybe even past 100. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mother Theresa, and Clint Eastwood are a few examples of people who have had success after forty.
So what is causing us to age. The answer is that our 37 trillion cells are not performing as they did when we were 26 and younger. If we find a way to keep our cells healthy, communicating, and happy, we will continue to lead a productive life as we live past 100. Yes, scientists use the term happy. When we are stressed and not happy it affects our cells and their performance.
What is going wrong and why, is the many faceted answer we are discovering. There are many books, articles, and research projects that delve into one or some part of the equation but we have to solve the complete equation and put all the elements together to keep our bodies and mind functioning in great health past 100.
That is what I am working on, a book about the 8 Elements that will keep you healthy past 100, all in one place.
If you want a free copy of my book just go to our website HammondLifeExtension.com, sign up and I will give you a free copy this spring when I publish it. In the meantime I will be sending out weekly emails that go over one aspect of health from the air we breath to the supplements we take.
Today I would like to explain things that you might not know about CoQ10
Our bodies produce CoQ10, if you had no CoQ10 in your body you would die because CoQ10 is a necessary component in the conversion of the food we eat into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) the fuel your cells need in order to function. If your cells can’t function, you can’t function. Your body should make enough CoQ10 to keep you healthy until you reach about 40 years old but my twins took an extensive blood test at 19, because their energy level was low, and they were both found to be low in CoQ10 at age 19. Research has found that your body’s production of CoQ10 can be 50% at 50 and 30% at 70. If the amount of CoQ10 working in your body to supply fuel to your cells is diminished your physical and mental abilities will also be diminished. It is smart to get a blood test for CoQ10, which can cost less than $80.00, so that you can decide on the correct dosage.. Taking a supplement of CoQ10 when your body supply diminishes helps keep your physical strength up while keeping your mental abilities sharp, it also helps you to do more, feel healthy and look better.
Most articles on CoQ10 concentrate on the benefits of CoQ10 in regards to your heart and your brain, but now you know that it does much more because CoQ10 needs to be available to convert the food we eat into the fuel that the mitochondria needs to power all of the 37 trillion cells in our body. The brain and the heart have over a thousand mitochondria in each cell while some cells only have a few so it is vitally important to have enough CoQ10 to convert food to large amounts of ATP for the heart and brain to function properly.
Now I am going to ask you to wrap your brain around this whole concept of purpose with CoQ10. It is a necessary part of the process that converts the food we eat to ATP, the fuel the mitochondria need to power all the cells of our body to do all the things our body and mind must do. So, if we don’t have enough CoQ10 at all times to make this conversion, every function of our body can be compromised because our cells mitochondria don’t have enough fuel. When our body is not working properly excessive amounts of free radicals accumulate and lead to oxidative damage, which can interfere with regular cell functioning. Oxidative stress can induce cell damage. This can result in metabolic diseases like diabetes. Studies also show that people with Cancer, Alzheimers, and other forms of dementia are low in CoQ10.
When you realize what CoQ10 does, you can understand why trusted source studies show that a lack of CoQ10 affects almost everything in our body.
Many studies show CoQ10 is good for your heart, your brain, and your muscles, which makes sense because those cells have the most mitochondria so they need lots of CoQ10.
- Studies show that CoQ10 helps with fertility.
- Boosting CoQ10 has eliminated severe headaches in group research
- CoQ10 can help to keep your skin young
The list goes on because the lack of enough CoQ10 to keep your cells energy where it needs to be can manifest itself at your weakest link.
Now for the sales part
We have our own website as a sales arm of Life Extension, a 40 year old supplement company that sells world wide and is the number one quality supplement company in the United States. I have been a customer of Life Extension for 38 years and for the last four years have been working in the wholesale division. We are not a multilevel, I work directly with corporate.
I have health information on the site that I will continue to add to with the latest news about what has been tested to give you a long healthy life.
You can buy CoQ10 right here.
Our CoQ10 is unique in these ways;
We use the best CoQ10 made in the world, which is the CoQ10 that is used in all research throughout the word. It is made in Japan and is under this name “Ubiquinol (as Kaneka Ubiquinol™)”. If you don’t see it written this way in the ingredients on the bottle, it is not the CoQ10 used in all research.
We have added shilajit to this supplement which doubles the levels of CoQ10 that reach the mitochondria.
We have added PQQ which promotes the generation of new mitochondria.
I will discuss different supplements and special health practices in future posts and please ask questions or leave a comment below.
