Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), An Antioxidant for Cardiovascular Health.
•Natural Ubiquinone (CoQ10) Supplement
CoQ10 (also called ubiquinone or coenzyme Q10) is a strong antioxidant used to support optimal cardiovascular health and nervous system health. The wealth of evidence for CoQ10 supplementation has been embraced in virtually every corner of the medical and scientific communities. Perhaps named for its vast presence in healthy body function, Ubiquinone (CoQ10) has impressed researchers for years for its array of contributions to good health.
The Role of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in The Body
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential component of the mitochondria (the "powerhouse" of a cell), where it plays a major role in energy production. The mitochondria in our cells generate 95 percent of all cellular energy by utilizing the ability of CoQ10 to transform sugars and fats into energy. CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in the body. Organs such as the heart, brain and liver, require constant energy in order to function correctly. CoQ10 provides the needed energy for proper functions of these organs. Coenzyme Q10 has demonstrated a positive effect on overall health through its ability to restore mitochondrial function in living cells.
Restoring Natural CoQ10 Levels in The Body to Normal Range
Our bodies naturally make CoQ10 in smaller quantities; however, as we age our ability to make CoQ10 declines and our CoQ10 levels can become depleted. During the normal aging process, the CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall can decrease by as much as 72 percent. Certain health conditions and medications have also been found to deplete CoQ10 levels in our bodies. Statin drugs (used to treat elevated cholesterol levels) have been known to further drain the bodys natural CoQ10 levels. Studies have shown that statin drugs can reduce blood plasma levels of CoQ10 by 40 percent. CoQ10 in a supplement form has been found to restore these levels to normal (pre-statin) range.
Finding the Right Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) Supplement
Low levels of CoQ10 in the body impair a cells basic metabolic function and CoQ10 supplementation can be used to restore low levels to optimal range. Coenzyme Q10 supplementation has been used successfully in many cardiovascular related health issues. The right CoQ10 supplement is as important as the research itself in gaining effective results for patients. Quality can be an issue when choosing a CoQ10 supplement. It has been proven that powdered CoQ10 supplements do not absorb as well as oil based CoQ10 supplements. Our natural CoQ10 supplement is provided as an oil, setting it apart from the less effective powders.
