L-Carnitine and CoQ10 - The "One-Two" Boost for Your Heart

L-Carnitine is a compound that is produced in your liver and kidneys.  High concentrations can be found in your skeletal and heart muscle.  It can greatly improve your heart and muscle energy by increasing their ability to extract oxygen from your blood.

Free fatty acids is a biochemical term for fat.   They are called "free" since they are free to move around the blood and within cells, compared to fats (and lipids) that are stationary.

Research shows that the heart uses free fatty acids as its main source of energy.  More energy can be obtained from the breakdown of fats than from a comparable amount of carbohydrate, sugar or starch.

L-Carnitine and CoQ10 work together to remarkably preserve heart health, preserving brain health, triggering weight loss, offering protection in neurodegenerative diseases (particularly Alzheimer's), giving new hope for male infertility, slowing down aging, improving immunity, enhancing athletic performance and the list goes on considerably.

L-Carnitine is best taken on an empty stomach and dosages of 250-500 mg, 3 to 4 times per day have been recommended.  Individual health conditions may require increases, and L-Carnitine is VERY safe.  Those with compromised renal function may require lower dosages.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
