A Little More About PQQ and Coenzyme Q10
I like to liken Coenzyme Q10 to having a wood burning fire in your carpeted house without a screen. The fire pops sparks onto the carpeted floor, and you end up with burn marks. When you add a screen, you protect your carpet. Coenzyme Q10 acts as a screen.
Dr. Rheaume suggests PQQ and Coenzyme Q10 work best when taken together. And she recommends 20 mg of PQQ and 100mg – 200 mg per day of CoQ10, especially for those over age 50.
These antioxidants are fat soluble. And that usually means you should take them while eating some sort of fat in your food. However, these days, if fat soluble nutrients come in a softgel form, it’s not as important to eat fat when you take them to fully absorb them.
Need an easy way to find PQQ and CoQ10?
Life Extensions, Solaray, and Natural Factors all provide combo supplements of these two powerhouse antioxidants.

And I’ve been working for years to put together a sleep tool kit that helps me get the most out of every night of sleep.
Stress affects our ability to rest well.
