CoQ10 x 60 Capsules
CoQ10 belongs to a group of substances known as ubiquinones, all of which are known as coenzymes Q. These molecules are known to have cardioprotective, cytoprotective, and neuroprotective properties. The antioxidant characteristic of CoQ10 works in the mitochondria, where it protects mitochondria from free radical damage, and it prevents oxidation in the membranes of cells.
CoQ10 is made by the body and shares a common pathway with cholesterol. Levels of CoQ10 decline as humans age. Additionally, some drugs, such as the statins used to control cholesterol levels, inhibit the body's manufacture of the enzyme.
CoQ10 is used to manufacture ATP, a major form of energy available for immediate use by the body.
Absorption of CoQ10 is relatively low, especially if a supplement is taken on an empty stomach. For that reason, it is best taken with food, preferably containing some fat. This form of CoQ10 is well absorbed because of its mix with medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).
