Description: Co-Q10 is an antioxidant used in cardiovascular health.
Key Ingredients: Co-Enzyme Q 10 is an essential component of the mitochondria (the “powerhouse” of a cell), where it plays a major role in energy production. Co-Q10 is found in almost every cell in the body. Our bodies naturally make Co-Q10 in smaller quantities; however, as we age our ability to make Co-Q10 declines and our Co-Q10 levels can become depleted. Certain conditions and medications have also been found to deplete Co-Q10 levels in our bodies.
Supplemental Co-Q10 has been used in several different studies spanning a wide range of topics. It has been used successfully in many cardiovascular related health issues. It has also been found to restore Co-Q10 levels after medication use. Co-Q10 is also a strong antioxidant and is often times used for this reason.
Quality can be an issue when choosing a Co-Q10 supplement. It has been found that powdered Co-Q10 supplements do not absorb as well as oil based Co-Q10 supplements.
Suggested Use: 1 or more soft gel capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
