As we age our levels of CoQ10 decline and we need to supplement it with additional CoQ10 for general energy and heart health.
CoQ10 is naturally produced in all cells of the human body, and has been studied for more than 40 years. It plays a critical role in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which provides energy to all cells including those in your muscles – and that most important muscle known as your heart. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent free radical production which causes damage to the DNA and all cells in the whole body. It can also help you maintain a healthy immune system, reduce stress-related damage, and improve circulation and brain function.
CoQ10 exists in both ubiquinol and ubiquinone forms, but ubiquinol works better because, as a precursor to CoQ10, it raises blood levels of CoQ10 much more quickly and naturally, and, therefore, it is more bioavailable as a naturally absorbed nutrient delivering all the benefits of CoQ10.
