WHAT IS COQ10?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like compound that plays a central role in cellular energy production. CoQ10 is naturally found in every cell of the body, but is in high concentration in organs that have high energy requirements such as the heart, liver and kidney. The amount of CoQ10 in the body tends to decline with age and may contribute to fatigue and other health conditions.
Supplementation with CoQ10 is often recommended for those 40 years or older because of this tendency for the amount of CoQ10 in the body to decline with age. Statin drugs may decrease the amount of usable CoQ10 in the body and for that reason, many doctors recommend that patients on statin drugs also supplement their diet with CoQ10.
CoQ10 provides the form of CoQ10 found in nature. This natural form is called ubiquinone. This product can enhance energy and support heart health
This product includes:
This compound is derived from the seed of the Annatto plant. Research has shown using this supports against diabetes, diarrhea, fevers, fluid retention, heartburn, malaria and hepatitis. It is used as an antioxidant and acts as a bowel cleanser. It has also been used topically to treat burns and infections.
Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) - CoQ10
A fat-soluble component that is involved in energy production in the body, coQ10 also supplies antioxidant actvity to bind free radicals. It is found in all tissue but is especially high in tissues with high metabolic requirements (i.e., heart, kidney, liver, neurological). This also supports the breakdown of simple carbohydrates (Maltose).
Glutathione, also known as GSH, is a molecule found in your body. Produced byt the liver as well as by neurons in the central nervous system, it is made up of three amino acids: L-cysteine, glycine, and L-glutamate. It is a very powerful antioxidant and is found in every cell of the body. It plays a crucial role in immune function, detoxification capacity and protection against oxidative stress.
A polyunsaturated essential fatty acid that is found mostly in plant oils. It's known as the parent fatty acid of omega-6 series, and it is essential for human nutrition because it cannot be synthesized by the body. Like all fatty acids, linoleic acid is used by the body as a source of energy. It plays a special role in the support of heart health, reduces total and LDL cholesterol, has some evidence that it also improves insulin sensitivity and blood pressure.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs)
MCTs are medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. These fats are easily digested and when ingested promote weight loss, may help reduce blood sugar levels, support diabetes, control cholesterol, are instant fuel for energy, may help reduce lactic acid in the body and could help manage epilepsy, Alzheimer's Disease and Autism. MCTs also contain powerful fatty acids that fight yeast and bacterial growth.
A naturally occuring long-chain fatty acid in various animal and vegetable fats and oils. It is an odorless, colorless oil and is classified as a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Research supports oleic acid improves lipid profile, helps maintain balance of body weight and insulin resistance and protection.
Palmitic acid, also known as palmitate or C16, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as long-chain fatty acids, omega-7. Palmitic acid is the most common saturated fatty acid found in the liver and tissue of the body. Other sources come from animal meats, dairy, as well as palm and coconut oils. The main functions of this acid is to allow water to combine with oil and dirt molecules and wash them away.
Safflower oil (non-GMO)
An oil extracted from the Safflower plant (Carthamus tictorius) a herbaceous, thistle-like annual plant. The flower and extracted oil from the seeds are used as medicine. It has a rich source of unsaturated fatty acids and is used for treating high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and scar prevention.
Vegetable glycerin (Other Ingredient)
Glycerin (also know as glycerol or glycerine) is a clear liquid typically made from soybean, coconut or palm oils. It is odorless and has a mild, sweet tast with a syrup-like consistency and is derived from vegetables. It is added to food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and supplements and may offer health benefits such as moisturized and reslient skin, releif from constipation, improved hydration and better physical performance.
