CoQ10

 

CoQ10 is in an essential nutrient that works like an antioxidant in the body. In its active form, it’s called ubiquinone or ubiquinol. It’s synthesized within the body naturally and used for important roles such as supplying cells with energy and regulating blood pressure.

Why You'll Find this Herb in our Product

To sustain enough energy to perform bodily functions, our cells' mitochondria turn fat and other nutrients into useable sources of energy. This conversion process requires the presence of CoQ10.

Although the body has the ability to make CoQ10 on its own, production naturally declines as we age—just when we need our cells to help defend us most. Consuming CoQ10 from high-quality supplements can help maintain these levels.

Coenzymes Make Great Partners

  • The reason CoQ10 is not considered a vitamin is because all animals, including humans, can make small amounts of coenzymes on their own. 
  • As a coenzyme, CoQ10 helps other enzymes work to digest food properly.
  • CoQ10 defends our cells from damage caused by harmful free radicals.
  • It’s been shown that it helps recycle vitamins C and E, maximizing the effects of vitamins and antioxidants that are already at work in the body.

Radically Changing Free Radicals

  • CoQ10 defends our cells from damage caused by harmful free radicals.
  • As a powerful antioxidant, CoQ10 can increase absorption of other essential nutrients.
