What is CoQ10?

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), also known as ubiquinone, is a proenzyme produced naturally within the body. CoQ10 plays a critical role in energy (ATP) production and is one of the most powerful known lipid-soluble antioxidants, protecting cells, organs and tissues from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals. CoQ10 inhibits protein and lipid oxidation and protects mitochondrial...

Full Description

CoQ 10

OVERVIEW

CoQ-10 is a lipid-soluble antioxidant found in every cell in the body. CoQ-10 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.

This CoQ-10 300 mg formulation is delivered in an oil-based proprietary form and includes natural vitamin E for enhanced absorption and maximum stability.

INGREDIENT BENEFITS

CoQ-10 Depletion

The body’s ability to produce and metabolize CoQ-10 has been reported to decrease with age. CoQ-10 deficiency may be caused by insufficient dietary intake of CoQ-10, impairment in CoQ-10 production, drug-induced CoQ10 depletion, gene mutations and oxidative stress. HMG-CoA reductase is an enzyme required for the synthesis of cholesterol and CoQ-10. Cholesterol lowering medications inhibit this enzyme in order to reduce cholesterol synthesis, but may also simultaneously deplete CoQ-10 status.

Cardiovascular Health

CoQ-10 is important for all energy-dependent processes, and is especially helpful in strengthening contraction of the heart muscle. CoQ-10 is also important for protection against free radical damage to the arterial vessels.

Blood Sugar Balance

The electron transport chain, a biochemical pathway in which CoQ-10 plays a major role, significantly impacts carbohydrate metabolism. CoQ-10 has been shown to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
