Heartfelt Advice

Sometimes when I haven’t had enough sleep or if I’ve indulged in one too many double iced lattes my heart will let me know.  Once in a while it will beat a little too fast for my taste, only to abruptly slow down again, and then resume its steady (and comforting) regular pitter-patter rhythm.  This is a little reminder to adjust my caffeine consumption but also to start thinking seriously and proactively about my heart health.

I do try to exercise regularly, reminding myself that bike rides and hikes are supposed to be “enjoyable” and good for me.  I also attempt to eat heart healthy foods and to eschew saturated fats whenever possible, though this can sometimes prove difficult as I have a torrid love affair with cheeseburgers.

Lately I’ve been hearing (and reading) a lot about the nutritional supplement coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10.  Numerous studies have shown that CoQ10 may be able to strengthen the heart muscle and enhance the immune system as well as provide the body with extra energy.  Additionally, new research suggests that CoQ10 therapy can help some effects of Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases, and possibly help to protect against dopamine depletion as well.

So now I’m adding another supplement to my regime of multivitamins, exercising and eating (relatively) well.  I feel stronger already.

Now.  Where did I put my bicycle?
