Nutrient CoQ10 May Be An Important Weapon In The Fight Against Lou Gehrig's Disease And Other Neurodegenerative Diseases, Says Antiaging Institute Of California

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Antiaging Institute of California believes that antioxidant Coenzyme Q10, popularly known as CoQ10, may have previously unknown benefits against one of the most fearsome of all neurodegenerative illnesses. CoQ10 has already been shown to be a powerful promoter of cardiac health, as well as an effective weapon against high blood pressure and migraine headaches, but a recent study suggests that more attention ought to be paid to its possible use against a disease that has devastated the lives of countless individuals, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Sold in the form of a supplement by the Antiaging Institute of California, the relatively little known nutrient may be far more powerful than most medical authorities have previously believed.

ALS is more widely known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, named for the stricken baseball legend famously portrayed by Gary Cooper in the 1942 film biography, Pride of the Yankees. The illness, usually deadly but always severely debilitating, has devastated the lives of countless others, including world famous physicist Stephen Hawking, who has done unusually well. The Antiaging Institute is pointing to a study published in the May 2012 issue of The Open Nutraceuticals Journal and written about on the website, The study looked at the possible impact of the supplement on an unnamed 75 year-old Japanese scientist who had been diagnosed with ALS five years previously and was having severe difficulty with ordinary motor function. Treatment with CoQ10 appeared to improve his condition and notably slow the progress of the illness.

While the medical establishment has accepted that a diet rich in antioxidant laden fruits and vegetables appears to be protective against ALS and related illnesses, the Antiaging Institute of California believes that further study of CoQ10 and neurodegenerative illness is more than warranted, and that patients concerned about the illness may consider consulting their physicians about adding the supplement to their health regimen. Along with such increasingly popular antioxidant products as green coffee bean extract, which appears to be a powerful aid in weight loss, the Antiaging Institute of California markets a large and growing line of outstanding nutritional supplements.

Studies show that nutritional supplements can have a powerful impact on the health of people of all ages. While it is strongly recommended that consumers consult their physicians about adding supplements to their diets, supplements are believed to be a natural, gentle way to improve human health that may, in some cases, be more beneficial than some commonly prescribed and over-the-counter medications.
