Today on Health & Longevity, Dr. John Westerdahl features guest, Bruce Lipshutz, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry at University of California at Santa Barbara, and Scientific Expert on Coenzyme Q10. Dr. Bruce Lipshutz discusses Coenzyme Q10, its chemistry, its function in the body, and its role in human health and longevity. CoQ10 is present and vitally needed in all human cells in the body. This unique compound is made naturally in the body in sufficient amounts for maintaining health while we are young, from youth to around the age of 20. As we age our bodies ability to produce CoQ10 is reduced. Dr. Lipshutz discusses how dietary supplementation with CoQ10 can help optimize the levels of CoQ10 in the body.
