Acid Reflux, Heartburn, GERD, Natural Remedies

Many people have heard of the terms acid reflux and heartburn and use them interchangeably. However, there are differences between the two conditions.

CoQ10 for Headaches, Parkinson’s

Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is a compound that helps generate energy in your cells. Your body produces CoQ10 naturally, but its production tends to decrease with age. Fortunately, you can get CoQ10 through supplements or foods. Numerous health conditions such as “neurodegenerative disorders, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, muscular and cardiovascular diseases” have been associated with low CoQ10 levels [1].
