This simple supplement can erase wrinkles

You know the cliché: Liver spots, gray hair, and wrinkles aren't signs of aging.

They're signs of LIVING.

It's certainly true, and I know folks who are proud of those marks -- as if they've earned every line through years of good living.

But not everyone feels that way.

While it's perfectly OK to wish those lines away, there's an entire industry out there trying to scam you with overpriced anti-aging creams that make promises they can't deliver.

Don't get hoodwinked.

Most of those lotions will skin your bank account, leaving you with more wrinkles and less cash. But there IS something that can help smooth over those bothersome lines -- and it's not a cream, lotion, or ointment.

There's a simple and safe nutrient that can fight some of the worst damage of aging on the inside -- and now, new research shows how it can work wonders on the outside, too.

Coenzyme Q10 can help wipe away the wrinkles that form in the most noticeable place: your face.

Just 150 mg of CoQ10 per day for 12 weeks can reduce wrinkles around your eyes and mouth, improving smoothness and firmness.

And if you've ever noticed that those lines seem to get worse in winter, it's not just your imagination. The cool weather and dry air can take a toll on your skin -- but the study finds that CoQ10 can help there, too, by easing the seasonal changes that strike in winter.

While the study doesn't show why it would help improve wrinkles, CoQ10 is used by every cell in your body for energy, including skin cells. That quick burst of energy could give them the power they need to fight the stress of aging.

It's also a potent antioxidant, which means it can help protect skin cells from the damage that leads to wrinkles.

That's not even close to everything CoQ10 can do. It's not even the BEST trick CoQ10 has up its sleeve, because this stuff can also protect seniors from today's leading killer.

It can fight heart disease.

One study a few years back found CoQ10 will cut your risk of death from heart disease in half when taken with selenium, an essential trace mineral now found in most decent multivitamins.

The only problem with CoQ10 is getting it, because you won't find this one in your multi.

Your body can make some CoQ10 on its own, and you can get a little from diet -- but generally, the amounts you'll find in food are pretty low. Even worse, drugs such as statins can suck the CoQ10 right out of your body, leaving you badly deficient.

So whether you're worried about the wrinkles on the outside or the aging of your heart on the inside, it's smart to add a CoQ10 supplement to your daily routine.
