Coenzyme Q10 is an essential nutrient that is found in every living cell in the body.
CoEnzymeQ10 is extremely important in the repair and maintenance of periodontal tissue. Several studies show the correlation between periodontal disease and CoQ10 deficiencies. Coenzyme Q10 is also a powerful antioxidant and without enough Coq10 to boost resistance, a person’s periodontal damage may exceed repair. Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to have a much more rapid and powerful effect when taken orally as a liquid or gel as the absorption process begins in the mouth. Gum tissue will absorb sufficient quantities of Coenzyme Q10 to replenish deficiencies. Unlike other alternate supplements and medicines, the results of CoQ10 application are quickly observed.
Researchers at Osaka University faculty of dentistry in Japan found that people with gum disease tend to have significantly lower levels of CoQ10 in the tissues of their gums. They gave patients with moderately or severely inflamed gums a regimen of CoQ10 for about 8 weeks. Patients received no other therapy. The CoQ10 therapy effectively suppressed the gingival inflammation in every case.
CoEnzyme Q10 has proven to be a powerful addition to a successful gum treatment, as is helps to replenish CoQ10 deficiencies in the gums after long-standing gum disease.
