CoQH-CF x 60 Capsules
CoQH-CF™ (ubiquinol) is a reduced form of coenzyme Q10, and is the primary form the body needs for cellular energy production. A unique softgel delivery system protects the content from oxygen exposure and provides an efficient way to maintain adequate ubiquinol levels in those whose ability to produce or convert it has been hindered by oxidative stress or disease.
Why support with CoQH-CF™?
Regular supplemental coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is oxidised, and must be converted to the reduced form in the body (ubiquinol), for effective antioxidant activity. The many benefits of supplemental CoQ10 as ubiquinone are dampened by the fact that only a small percentage is utilised by the body, requiring large doses for maximum results. Those who are under increased oxidative stress, or are simply getting older, typically are even less able to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol.
Solute ubiquinol is the most absorbable form of CoQ10 on the market today. A unique softgel delivery system protects and stabilises the content. The formula contains D-limonene oil (from oranges) for crystal-free solubilisation. Minute amounts of capric and caprylic acids are added to help keep the alpha-lipoic acid completely dissolved.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is essential for the health of our cells, tissues and organs.* It belongs to a family of lipid soluble ubiquinones, present throughout the body, and occurring in the cells of all plants and animals. Among the coenzyme Q compounds that exist in nature, coenzyme Q10 is the predominant form found in humans. It is most concentrated in cells of the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. The body’s production of CoQ10 peaks around age 20 and then declines. For many decades, supplemental CoQ10 has been used throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States for its support of cellular energy, antioxidant function and cardiovascular health.
CoQ10 plays an essential role in the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC), the major metabolic pathway for making energy in every cell of the body. The ETC is the third step in the process of cellular respiration, following glycolysis and the Krebs cycle, the step where most of the energy locked in the original glucose molecule is released. The ETC is a “bucket brigade” of electron-carrying proteins located in the inner membrane of the mitochondria, which transfer electrons from one to another down the chain. This eventually produces water and a gradient through which ATP, our cellular energy currency, is made. CoQ10 functions as an electron carrier in the ETC, linking the various enzymes of the chain. Every pair of electrons processed by the chain must first interact with CoQ10, making the production of ATP dependent on sufficient levels of CoQ10 in the mitochondrial membrane.
Avoid obvious sources of pollution, toxins and fumes. Air your house. Consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates and processed foods. Drink adequate quantities of filtered water.
