Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), or ubiquinone, is a lipid-soluble antioxidant found in every cell in the body. CoQ10 is abundant in the mitochondrial membrane and plays an important role in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule of chemical energy upon which all cellular functions depend. As a coenzyme, CoQ10 is required for several enzymatic reactions required to produce cellular energy and to protect the body against free radicals produced during this process. To maintain energy production, mitochondrial CoQ10 is continuously recycled from ubiquinone, its ATP production state, to ubiquinol, its antioxidant, free radical scavenging state. CoQ10, an essential component of cellular energy production, has been shown to extend cell life and benefit high-energy requiring systems including the cardiovascular, neurological, and immune systems.
Ubiquinol is the reduced, active antioxidant form of CoQ10. In addition to its critical role in energy production, CoQ10 is one of the most powerful known lipid-soluble antioxidants, protecting cells, organs and tissues from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals. For those who cannot efficiently convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol on their own, the patented, lipid-stabilized Activated CoQ-10 formula ensures maximum bioavailability and cell protection.
Patented and Stabilized Form of CoQ10 for Maximum Bioavailability and Utilization. For those who cannot efficiently convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol on their own, the patented, lipid-stabilized ubiquinol formula ensures maximum bioavailability and cell protection.
Suggested Use: Take one soft gel with a meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Does Not Contain: Gluten, wheat, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, dairy, fish, or crustacean shellfish.
If you are pregnant or nursing, consult with your healthcare practitioner before taking this product.
CoQ10 and vitamin K have a similar structure. As vitamin K promotes blood clotting, using CoQ10 at the same time as warfarin and other anticoagulant medications could antagonize their effects.
If you have diabetes and take insulin or other glucose-lowering medications, you might require dosage adjustments to compensate for the potential blood-sugar lowering effect of this supplement. Its potential to lower blood pressure might also require a similar course of action if you take drugs to control hypertension.
