PRIMARY USES: Cardiovascular Health, Enhanced Energy, Athletes, Antioxidant Protection, Periodontal Health, Elderly
Cardiovascular disease is still the #1 killer of people in industrialized societies. This necessitates supplementation in order to maintain optimal heart health and nothing is more direct or better than CoEnzyme Q10. It can be taken daily for the duration of ones life to either maintain or help rejuvenate systemic heart health, energy levels, aging and other conditions. Co-Q 10 is especially important for the health of the heart due to the organs’ high-energy demands. It can benefit anyone experiencing cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, angina, arrhythmias or congestive heart failure. Co- Q10 improves overall heart function by enhancing energy production, inhibiting blood clot formation, improving the hearts pumping action and preventing the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol). Beta blockers, blood pressure lowering medications and cholesterol lowering medications (statins) can all inhibit Co-Q10 production. Taking supplemental Co-Q10 while on these medications can prevent further cardiovascular problems and can assist in improving overall cardiovascular health.
Coenzyme Q10 is a compound produced naturally by the body. It is required for the production of energy within every cell of our body and is critical for the health of all tissues and organs. Co-Q 10 acts as a catalyst to the electron transport chain in the mitochondria of our cells where biological energy called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is produced. Because of Co-Q10 ‘s extensive involvement in energy production, it is a great supplement for anyone looking to increase energy or enhance exercise tolerance. Athletes can use Co-Q10 to enhance athletic performance and keep the heart functioning strong. Individuals with fatigue syndromes and muscle weakness can also benefit from the added energy Co-Q10 provides. Natural Co-Q10 levels in the body slowly begin to decline around age twenty with a more pronounced drop off after age fifty, therefore, as we age, Co-Q10 supplementation becomes increasingly more important. The elderly and adults alike who lack exertion and feel overly fatigued and weak may be experiencing a Co-Q1O deficiency.
Co-Q1O is an important antioxidant in mitochondria and lipid membranes. It significantly reduces oxidative damage to tissues, inhibits oxidation of LDL or bad cholesterol. Co-Q 1 0 is also an important component of the immune system. It enhances immune activity in both healthy and immuno-deficient individuals.
Co-Q 1 0 can also be helpful for those with periodontal (gum) disease. Most of individuals with gum disease have low levels of Co-Q1O. Supplementing with Co-Q 1 0 can provide faster healing and tissue repair of the gums.
Co-Q10 is a fat-soluble substance and is therefore insoluble in water. When Co-Q10 is combined with Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols), it increases its stability and enhances its absorption, utilization and function in the body.
CONTRA·INDICATIONS AND CAUTIONS:
Co-Q10 may decrease blood pressure and blood sugar levels and caution is advised in individuals with low blood pressure, diabetes or hypoglycemia.
