Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), or ubiquinone, is a naturally occurring, vitamin-like nutrient found in almost all cells of the human body and is essential to life. It works on a cellular level to produce metabolic energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). High concentrations are found in the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas.
CoQ10 is commonly used to strengthen and protect the heart, although it has other important health benefits. It acts as a powerful antioxidant and supports circulation, healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range, immune function and gum health. It also boosts the benefits of vitamin E.Evidence suggests people who take statin drugs to treat high cholesterol levels may be simultaneously depleting their CoQ10 levels. Many cardiologists are now recommending CoQ10 to patients as an adjunct to traditional medical treatments.
Normally CoQ10 is found in the diet, in foods like fish, organ meats and peanuts. As we age and begin to lose our ability to synthesize this nutrient from food, CoQ10 supplements can help.
One of the most important things you can do for your overall health and longevity is improve your heart health. With well-documented substantial benefits to the heart and more, coenzyme Q10 is an essential nutrient to add to your health regimen.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supports heart health, and promotes vitality and energy. It's an essential component of cell mitochondria, where energy is produced. CoQ10 is vital to meet the heart's high energy needs, and it acts as a potent antioxidant.*
Our pharmaceutical-grade (USP) CoQ10 is produced by natural fermentation. Since CoQ10 is fat soluble, we combine it with soybean oil, which significantly enhances its absorption.
