Coenzyme Q10 appears to be a must-use supplement as you age. According to the September ’13 Reader’s Digest, “[CoQ10] —a substance your body produces naturally in small amounts—decreased mortality rates among heart-failure patients by about half in a study presented at the International Heart Failure 2013 Congress.” It appears to encourage heart cells to produce more energy.

Kale is getting a reputation as a supervegetable, and for good reason. According to the May/June ’13 Well Being Journal, “It has a 3-1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio, which is a very high amount for a vegetable. It also contains all nine essential amino acids needed to form proteins, as well as nine other nonessential amino acids. Kale also contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids [in a desirable ratio]. It also contains cancer-preventive compounds such as sulforaphane and indole-3 carbinol.” You can stir-fry it with onions or garlic and olive oil or bake it to make kale chips to snack on.
