How are our Gut and Immune System Related?
The gastrointestinal tract is the primary interface between us and our outside environment. The total mucosal surface area of the adult GI tract is about 300 square meters, and is by far the largest body area exposed to “foreign” substances like pathogens, harmless bacteria and food. The gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) makes the GI tract our largest immune organ.
Millions of people worldwide suffer from occasional heartburn and gastrointestinal discomfort, which can result from stress, eating too much, and/or eating too fast. Symptoms can include burning and pressure, or pain in the chest and/or throat area. Many people treat this condition through the use of acid-blocking or acid-neutralizing medications.
Coenzyme-Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like substance found in virtually all cells of the human body, including the heart, liver, and skeletal muscles, and in most plant and animal cells.
• As an antioxidant, CoQ10 protects proteins, LD (“bad”) cholesterol, and mitochondrial DNA from oxidative damage.
• As a participant in the production of cellular energy, CoQ10 helps ensure the body’s biggest energy consumers - the heart and the brain - are well-fed.
