My expat encyclopedia mentor here in Angeles City told me about an amazing supplement and nutrient called CoQ10, aka coenzyme Q10.
He said it would help my insulin resistance by converting food to energy rather than storing it as fat. I looked it up and all the websites said it was an important nutrient. Even establishment medical sites do. I cant believe i didn't know about this before.
Apparently it burns your fat and converts it to energy and takes that energy and sends it to your brain so you're more alert and aware. Wow thats incredible. It also lowers your blood pressure and controls blood sugar and helps your heart and cardiovascular system too.
Wow i cant believe such a nutrient exists! I wonder why this isnt more well known? I mean why arent all overweight Americans taking this if it does all that? What do u think? Have u heard of CoQ10? If not you should research it online.
Im going to order it online from iherb.com. it's not very expensive. And in fact healthy options has it too for 500p for 30 softgels at 100mg. But u should take 100mg or 200mg.
However, there are two forms of CoQ10. One is stabilized and cheaper, called ubiquinone, the standard version. Many experts recommend the active form of CoQ10 called ubiquinol because it absorbs better and is more soluble and more effective. But the active version more expensive of course and harder to stabilize. See here:

Other experts say the body can convert CoQ10 to both stable and active versions as needed. I don't know who to believe so im just going to try both. Both versions have lots of positive reviews from users it seems. So both are probably beneficial.

As mentioned above, CoQ10 levels naturally deplete with age.
Thankfully, supplements can raise your levels of CoQ10 and may even improve your overall quality of life.
Older adults with higher blood levels of CoQ10 tend to be more physically active and have lower levels of oxidative stress, which may help prevent heart disease and cognitive decline (22).
CoQ10 supplements have been shown to improve muscle strength, vitality and physical performance in older adults (23).
To counteract the age-related depletion of CoQ10, it’s recommended to take 100–200 mg per day (24).
