CoQ10 is a lipid-soluble antioxidant found in every cell in the body. CoQ10 is abundant in the mitochondrial membrane and plays an important role in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule of chemical energy upon which all cellular functions depend. The synthesis of ATP within the mitochondria is a multi-step series of biochemical reactions called the electron transport chain. As a coenzyme, CoQ10 is required for several enzymatic reactions required to produce cellular energy and to protect the body against free radicals produced during this process. To maintain energy production, mitochondrial CoQ10 is continuously recycled from ubiquinone, its ATP production state, to ubiquinol, its antioxidant state. After the age of 35 to 40 years, endogenous synthesis of CoQ10 begins to decline.
CoQ10, an essential component of cellular energy production, has been shown to extend cell life and benefit high-energy systems, namely the cardiovascular, neurological and immune systems.
The CoQ-10 formulation is delivered in an oil-based proprietary form and includes natural vitamin E for enhanced absorption and maximum stability.
1 or more soft gel capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional
The large body of evidence supporting CoQ10 supplementation has been embraced in virtually every corner of the medical and scientific community. Perhaps named for its vast presence in the body, ubiquinone (CoQ10) contributes to energy production and good health. Because of the immense energy demands of the heart, CoQ10 has the ability to promote cellular energy production and offers wide-ranging cardiovascular support.
Finding the Right CoQ10
The right CoQ-10 is important for effective results. To improve absorption, CoQ10 must be dissolved and transported with a lipid carrier. This formulation is delivered as a highly bioavailable, oil-based soft gel.
