CoQ10 LOADED RECIPE!
GARLIC STUDDED GRASS FED SIRLOIN ROAST
This recipe is prefaced with what I consider an important message from Dr. Al Sears, MD, an integrative, anti-aging, practitioner with some very good information. Coincidentally I was studying about CoQ10 and PQQ as anti-aging, energy increasing supplements this weekend. I don’t believe in coincidence so I am sharing this information with you. These nutrients decline in us with age and are important. If you are vegan you can get these nutrients in plant based foods like nuts (peanuts, pistachio, walnuts, hazelnuts and their oils) and garlic, sweet potato, broccoli and many other plant based foods.
From Dr. Sears:
When I tell my hypertensive patients that they have high blood pressure, they almost always ask me "Why?" Seems like a pretty basic question. But most doctors have no good answer. They'll tell you it's your age. Or they'll tell you it's called "primary" or "essential" hypertension. That means you have it because you have it. They have no idea why.
Our world today is nothing like the environment our ancestors thrived in. In ancient times, humans had pure air, water and soil. They got all the nutrients they needed from wild animals, fish, nuts and berries.
Today our industrial food supply is a mess. It's soaked in rancid vegetable oils. It's full of chips, crackers, sodas, sugar, and thousands of junk products. We eat commercially processed meats loaded with toxins. Our soil has lost nutrients at a staggering rate.
Like our primal ancestors, traditional people eat the foods they were designed to eat. And they get the nutrients we need to keep blood pressure in a healthy range. One of the most important nutrients they get — and we don't — is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).
Studies show that boosting your CoQ10 can drop blood pressure an amazing 11 to 17 mmHg in systolic pressure and 8 to 10 mmHg in diastolic pressure.2 CoQ10 is a high-octane fuel used by every cell in your body. It's essential for the normal function of all your vital organs — especially energy-hungry organs, like your heart. It supplies your heart with the critical energy it needs to pump blood throughout your body.
