Coenzyme Q10, aka CoQ10, is a natural enzyme used to help your body to create energy and it’s pretty much a crucial ingredient for functioning cells. Whilst found in various food sources, many people choose to take it in supplement form as well, to take advantage of its fantastic antioxidant properties. CoQ10 deficiency has been linked with heart failure and high blood pressure, as well as cancer, diabetes, and more. So the benefits of CoQ10 are good news indeed!


Where can I get CoQ10?

You can either use a supplement to complement a healthy diet or you can increase your intake of CoQ10 foods. You’ll find it in veggies such as spinach, cauliflower, and broccoli, as well as in protein foods such as beef, liver, trout, and eggs. Nuts and sesame seeds are also full of the stuff, as are both strawberries and oranges. Just think how many scrummy dishes you can cook up with those ingredients! The endless benefits of CoQ10 might mean you even learn to like liver…or maybe not, but who needs an excuse to eat strawberries?


What are the benefits of CoQ10 then?

Ah, there are so many benefits of CoQ10! CoQ10 deficiency has been linked to a number of health issues and its use could improve just as many. These include:


Lowering Blood Pressure

Research suggests that CoQ10 could significantly lower blood pressure. This is perhaps because its powerful antioxidant properties can help to prevent blood vessel constriction. Either way, this is most definitely good news!


Preventing Migraines

Mitochondria dysfunction is a possible cause of migraines and, since CoQ10 is essential for healthy cells, it makes sense that it could help to prevent this distressing complaint. It has been found to reduce migraine frequency by up to 27%. We all know that migraines suck, so sufferers take note!


Combatting Chronic Heart Failure

Studies have found evidence to suggest that CoQ10 can aid in reducing symptoms common to heart failure, such as shortness of breath and blood pooling, so this could be an effective treatment, or partial treatment, for the condition. Keep that heart healthy!


Fighting Cancer

Researchers have found that cancer patients often have low CoQ10 levels. When a small group of patients were given CoQ10 supplements alongside their normal treatment, tumour regression occurred. If this could work, that’s fantastic – we’re on board with anything that fights this nasty disease.


Boosting the Brain

One study concluded that CoQ10, when used in combination with Vitamin E, could speed up the learning process. This could mean that they might be effective in treating cognitive issues in ageing. And who doesn’t want to get smarter?


Slowing Down Ageing

As a formidable antioxidant, with a large role in the creation of energy around the body, CoQ10 has been shown to fight signs of ageing in the skin. Which is good news all round really!


There are a bunch of reasons to increase your CoQ10 intake, but most important is a healthy, balanced diet full of vitamin-rich foods, including plenty of fruit and veg. The healthier your body in general, via diet and exercise, the more of the good stuff, like CoQ10, it should be able to produce itself!

How to get the right fit

To measure your clothing size follow these instructions (use the image below to help):


Measure from the bottom of your ankle to your waist area


Measure from your crotch to the bottom of your leg. Be aware that the inseam measurements are based on a regular inseam.

3. HIP

Stand with feet together and measure around the fullest point of the hip, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.


Measure around the narrowest part of the waist, keeping the tape horizontally.

Choose the right size

That's easier said than done. Because, what do you do if you are in between two sizes?

If in doubt, we recommend going a size  up in leggings - if you are between sizes, this is the best way to ensure a great fit!

Leggings fit:If the measurement for your hip and waist are different, select your leggings size using your hip measurement.
