Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) / Ubiquinol
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an important, naturally-occurring, essential nutrient, found in every cell of your body providing antioxidant protection against free radical damage at the cellular level. CoQ10 is a fat-soluble, super-antioxidant supplement whose actions in the body and chemical structure resemble those of Vitamin E and Vitamin K. It is considered by many researchers as the “Spark Plug” that creates cellular energy promoting the necessary chemical reactions for healthy cellular structure. Thousands of clinical studies and reports have shown that maintaining proper levels of CoQ10 in your body leads to improved overall health and longevity.
CoQ10 levels within the body typically begin decreasing as early as age 20. The body’s ability to maintain sufficient levels continue to diminish with age and the onset of chronic conditions and or oxidative stress. Without proper levels of CoQ10, the body produces less energy and lacks a strong defence against these conditions.
Some of the signs of CoQ10 deficiency are muscle aches and pains, liver dysfunction and mental deterioration. Individuals on cholesterol medicines of the statin class such as Lipitor, Zocor, and others, may consider taking CoQ10 supplements since statins have shown to decrease blood CoQ10 levels.
Each cell in the body needs a source of energy to survive, this is achieved by the cells breaking down sugars, fats, and amino acids to make energy. Minute enclosures within cells that create this energy are called mitochondria. CoQ10 exists naturally in our mitochondria transporting electrons involved in energy metabolism. CoQ10 is essential in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the basic energy molecule of each cell.
Supplementing with CoQ10 can help to combat oxidative phosphorylation disorders resulting from a decrease in the ability of the mitochondria to make energy in the form of ATP. Mitochondrial disorders often affect tissues that have a high-energy demand, such as the heart, brain, eyes and skeletal muscles. Mega-Liposomal CoQ10™ has the potential to raise plasma levels and help produce ATP more efficiently.
Potential Benefits of CoQ10
Attainment of Higher Blood CoQ10 Levels Consuming Far Lower Doses
Protecting Cells Against Oxidative Damage Through a Powerful Antioxidant Action
Generating Energy and Endurance by Rejuvenating Cellular Mitochondria
Improved Exercise Tolerance and Increased Muscle Strength
Promotes Healthy Heart
Stimulating Production of Healthy Gum Tissue to Combat Periodontal Disease
Controlling Hypertension and Blood Pressure Disorders
Reducing Damage Due to Hypoxic Injury (Tissue Damage By a Lack of Oxygen)
Nutritional Support for Improved Immune Response
Balancing Metabolic System Involved in Weight Management
The largest impediment in supplementing CoQ10 to the human body is the extremely poor absorption when taken orally in conventional pill form. The enhanced absorption feature of Mega-Liposomal CoQ10™ has the potential to significantly increase the bioavailability of CoQ10 nutrient into the body producing blood levels that can rival intravenous infusion.
Mega-Liposomal CoQ10™ is recommended for healthy adults for their daily health regiment as well as people who are nutritionally deficient and looking for advanced CoQ10 supplementation.
