What is CoQ10, what's its function, and what other supplements could still be helpful in boosting immunity (or natural detox) now? 

That's the topic of this episode with my friend and detox expert, Bridgit Danner. Inspired by a post she did in February, heart health month, I reached out to her. It dawned on me that though we all got serious about supplements a year ago, we've relaxed, many of us. Yet, we're not out of the woods yet, and whether immunity or detox, at midlife and beyond supplements will continue to be better than prescriptions. 

My Guest:

Bridgit Danner has been a licensed acupuncturist since 2004 and a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner since 2015. She ran a busy, integrative medicine clinic for ten years and has done over 12,000 treatments in her career. 

After losing everything to toxic mold, Bridgit now educates about toxins on how to detoxify with a functional healthcare approach through her online community at She also offers functional lab testing and practitioner-grade supplements through her shop,

Questions we explored in this episode:

  • What is CoQ10 and what is its function?
  • What effects someone’s need for CoQ10?
  • How might a woman know she needs it?
  • What other benefits are possible? (or positive side effects)
  • What other supplements might still be important to us and listeners who’ve relaxed a little about because of “new normal” still important to us?
  • How does each help?
  • Signs or signals we may need more?
  • What are mitochondria and why should listeners know about them besides energy for exercise?
  • How are they damaged?
  • What are the symptoms?
  • What can listeners do to support our mitochondria and have more energy?
