CoQ10

CoQ10 is a fat-soluble, vitamin like substance found in every cell in the body and is essential to the mitochondria in cells.

CoQ10 is a fat-soluble, vitamin like substance found in every cell in the body. It is essential to the mitochondria, the energy producing center of the cell, and is involved in the production of ATP, the major energy source for the cell. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease as we age and certain prescriptions (i.e., Statin Drugs) may also deplete cellular levels of CoQ10.

Ingredients

Co-Enzyme Q10 (Ubidecarenone)

Benefits of CoQ10

Lowers bad LDL cholesterol's ability to stick to the blood vessels.

Fuels highly energy-dependent cells.

Improves mitochondrial functions.

Protects brain cells from oxidative damage.

Stress

Oxidative stress, caused by a host of factors, causes mitochondiral disfunction. This inferes with muscle function, exercise and increases oxidative stress on the entire metaoblic system. By controlling and satisfying oxidative stress, CoQ10 will ease damage and stress potential at the cellular level.

Heart

Coenzyme Q10 is beneficial for heart health by maintaining the normal oxidative state of LDL cholesterol, it will also help assure circulatory health, and therefore support the optimal functioning of the heart muscle. By being involved in teh generation of ATP, it will also provide the energy your heart need. Overall, your cells use CoQ10 for growth and maintenance, so lower levels of CoQ10 are not supportive of other efforts to reduce illness.

Immunity

As a natural antioxdant, CoQ10 is a immunity boosting nutrient because of the defense it provides from the bodies own creation of free radicals. Free radicals are a part of healthy cellular metabolism Anti-oxidants disarm free radicals by donating an electron, which satisfies them, and thereby, reducing potential damange they cause to other healthy cells.

Brain

Cellular division creates oxidative damage, which in turn, enhances the production of harmful compounds that could affect memory, cognition and physical functions. CoQ10 may reduce these harmful compounds, possibly slowing the progression of cellular level breakdown. Unfortunately, the brain is very susceptible to oxidative damage due to its high fatty acid content and its high demand for oxygen.
