Supports Cardiovascular Health
More people are supplementing with CoQ10 than ever before. One of the biggest reasons for the recent rise in popularity of CoQ10 is the increased awareness that “statin” drugs used to lower cholesterol deplete levels of CoQ10 in the body.*
Scientific research also suggests that supplementing with CoQ10 improves Cardiovascular and Heart Health.* Studies reveal that patients with lower Ubiquinol concentrations and decreases in ATP (energy) production in the heart muscle tissue suffered more severe types of heart disease than patients with higher levels of CoQ10.*
The mitochondria are the energy factories in our bodies, and coenzyme Q10 is an essential component of healthy mitochondrial function. CoQ10 is required to convert the energy from fats and sugars into usable cellular energy. And yet, the body’s production of CoQ10 declines significantly with advancing age. With an ample amount of CoQ10, mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout the entire body-including the most densely populated area, the heart.
CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant, helping to protect proteins and DNA from oxidative stress, making it an essential part of any anti-aging regimen.
Ubiquinol versus Ubiquinone
Q10 by itself is known as Ubiquinone. Most CoQ10 supplements today contain Ubiquinone which is then converted by the body into Ubiquinol, the active form of CoQ10. The drawback to Ubiquinone is that it is notoriously difficult to absorb.
By supplementing with Ubiquinol, (the active form of CoQ10), rather than Ubiquinone (the inactive form of CoQ10), persons are able to achieve much higher blood concentrations of CoQ10. In fact, the absorption rate of Ubiquinol is up to 8x greater than Ubiquinone.
