CoQ10 AND Vitamin C
(Both Supplements For Only $84.00)
-Active Antioxidant Form of CoQ10
Produced naturally within the body, ubiquinol is a form of CoQ10 that is essential for use in cellular energy production. In addition to its critical role in energy production. it is one of the most powerful known lipid-soluble antioxidants available, protecting the bodys cells from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals.* Until recently, the only way to increase ubiquinol levels in plasma was to convert it from ubiquinone (CoQ10) within the body, which research has shown becomes increasingly difficult with age. Ubiquinol has superior bioavailability to ubiquinone as demonstrated in clinical trials.
CoQ10 STOPS GUM DISEASE
There is a lot of research and evidence linking CoQ10 to the reversal of gum disease. One study looked at 40 gingivitis patients and found most were CoQ10 deficient.
Another study using a double-blind trial found that CoQ10 doses of 50 to 75 mg every day stopped gum disease very quickly – sometimes within just a few days.
THE benefits of CoQ10 on gum disease. This super-nutrient is produced by your body in a 17-step process that requires at least eight vitamins, riboflavin (B2), niacinamide (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), cobalamin (B12), folic acid, vitamin C and other trace minerals and the amino acid tyrosine. And its strength lies in its power to protect and fire up your mitochondria, the microscopic power plants of your cells.
Your mitochondria also make up the master energy system that runs all your body’s functions – your circulatory, immune and endocrine system, as well as everything else that keeps you alive.
Low levels of CoQ10 affect every aspect of life. It also affects health, which brings on diseases and speed up aging. Yet CoQ10’s crucial role is still ignored by mainstream medicine.
Mitochondria are where food is converted into energy – but they are also the Achilles’ heel of cellular aging. As you grow older, your body produces less CoQ10 and that’s when your energy-producing system slows down. Our brains are no longer sharp, our hearts do not beat as efficiently and we get tired easily.
But replacing depleted CoQ10 reserves through diet and supplementation has a potent and rejuvenating impact on every part of your body – including your gums. It supercharges the energy output from each of your cellular power producers.
The most powerful is the ubiquinol form. Take at least 50 mg per day, up to 200 mg in divided doses if you have gum disease or an infection.
As a dietary supplement take 1 to 2 softgels 1 to 3 times daily, preferably with fat containing meals or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

A better solution for gum disease
There is a shifting paradigm in our understanding of gum disease. Many researchers in the field of nutrition understand bleeding swollen gums are a sign of scurvy – which is the hallmark of a vitamin C deficiency.
How does vitamin C help to prevent gum disease?
Everything from receding gums and tooth sensitivity can often be attributed to a vitamin C deficiency. It is estimated that gums turn over at least 20% of their collagen every single day. Collagen supports the gums by promoting both circulation and strength.
Every time teeth touch each other, from chewing food or grinding together, they use up some vitamin C. This is why the teeth that touch first when you close your mouth will have the most gum recession, decay and plaque buildup.
Yes, vitamin C inhibits the formation of plaque and tartar. In fact, vitamin C is referred to as the invisible toothbrush. Even if you are a tooth brushing fanatic – you may not get the results you want without adequate amounts of vitamin C.
Vitamin C deficiency promotes plaque buildup
There are scientific studies cited in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine which looked at brushing frequency and vitamin C status. Research revealed that individuals brushing once a day – and having good vitamin C levels – had less plaque than those who brushed twice or more daily, but had low levels of vitamin C.
People that grind or clench their teeth will notice more sensitivity and gum problems because of their increased need of vitamin C. Also, it has been found that people who consume less than the daily allowance of vitamin C, are one and half times more likely to develop severe gingivitis than those who consumed three times the amount.
While only a small amount of vitamin C intake a day is needed to prevent scurvy, this is hardly sufficient for optimal adrenal and oral health. What isn’t well recognized is that scurvy is a continuum and although low levels of scurvy aren’t recognized by the medical establishment – it still exists.
Vitamin C effectively kills unfriendly bacteria
Since vitamin C is one of the best natural defenses against bacteria – it is essential for health teeth and gums. Let’s not forget, the mouth is the gateway to the body not only for food, but also for unwanted bacteria.
The toxins – which the bacteria emit – are a real cause of dental disease. They promote gum pocketing, which eventually leads to tooth lost. While vitamin C is one of the best toxin killers – it is also a wonderful electron donor.
Toxins deplete electron stores at the cellular level. Having sufficient electrons inside your cells will save the gum walls – when toxins are prevalent in the oral cavity.
How modern dentistry fails to save teeth
Periodontal exams are considered the best form of prevention. That’s like saying mammograms prevent breast cancer – very deceptive, to say the least.
If periodontal and dentist recommendations for gum and tooth health were so good why would we have statistics which say one out of every two American adults, over 30 years of age, have some form of periodontal disease.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the risk for adults – 65 and older – goes up to 70.1 percent. Their study was published in the Journal of Dental Research, the official publication of the International and American Associations for Dental Research.
Will conventional dentistry ever tell the truth about gum disease?
The simple fact is most Americans are eating too many simple sugars and processed foods. All processed foods along with sugar, corn syrup, and other sweeteners deplete the body of vitamin C.
Yet, this fact is not addressed by the dental association and guidelines for dental health fail to mention the importance of vitamin C. One thing to remember – when choosing any form of vitamin C – avoid the GMOs, make sure it's organic and the most absorbable form is from whole food sources, not ascorbic acid. Generally speaking, only around 20% of oral vitamin C is absorbed – with the balance remaining in the gastrointestinal tract to attract water and loosen the bowels.
Bottom line, daily brushing and flossing are simply not enough to avoid gum disease. Be sure to maintain a healthy diet – low in simple sugars and processed foods. Plus, always eat a diet rich in vitamin C and supplement .
