CoQ10 Takes On Dry Mouth!

A vitamin-like substance that plays a critical role in cellular energy production throughout the body, Coenzyme Q10 remains a popular supplement option associated with many health benefits and backed by clinical research and trials (Balch 31). In a recent post on his website, Dr. Michael Murray discusses CoQ10’s potential role in alleviating the symptoms of dry mouth, a unique benefit for a supplement already linked to the treatment of cardiovascular disease, cancer (as an immune booster and/or chemotherapy relief), diabetes, and other prominent health issues (Murray 1). As Murray explains, CoQ10 increases chemical energy (ATP) production, “allowing the saliva-producing cells enough energy to secrete more saliva into the mouth,” effectively reducing the dry mouth sensation (Weekly Fast Facts 1).

For more information, check out the entire article here: Dr. Murray CoQ10 vs Dry Mouth. Even if you aren’t suffering from dry mouth, stop by the Nutrition Department of either Native Sun Store to learn about the possible benefits of adding CoQ10 to your supplement regime.

FREE Lecture on Anti-Aging Tuesday May 17th @ 8pm

Sally Byrd will be at Native Sun Natural Foods Market’s Baymeadows location at 11030 Baymeadows Road on Tuesday, May 17 at 8pm to give a FREE lecture “Collagen’s Role in Anti-Aging.”

A fibrous structural protein that occurs naturally in bones, connective tissues, and skin, collagen protects joints, ligaments, and tendons while aiding in the renewal of all cells within the body. As we age, the collagen in our bodies begins to break down, aging our cells, reducing the elasticity of the skin, and creating wrinkles. Join us as we explore the potential benefits of collagen supplementation, learning how collagen can help rejuvenate the skin and redefine the aging process!

Sally Byrd is a board certified and registered traditional naturo-path and author who currently works as the Director of Sales, Education and Formulation for Dr. Venessa’s Formulas™.

Seating is limited & reservations are required by calling 904-260-6950.
