CoEnzyme-Q10: The essential nutrient

CoEnzyme-Q10: The essential nutrient

Coenzyme-Q10 (coq10) is a required nutrient found in every cell of your body. A fat-soluble antioxidant, the active form of coq10, also known as Ubiquinol, is important for assisting cellular energy production and helps support the body’s natural protection against free radicals and oxidative stress.

What does coq10 do in the body?
The main biochemical purpose of CoQ10 is as a factor in the electron transport chain, in a series of reactions that are involved in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). As all cellular functions rely on ATP, CoQ10 is an essential nutrient for the health of all human tissues and organs.

What are free radicals?
Free radicals are any molecules capable of independent existence that contain unpaired electrons. Due to the unpaired electrons, they can be highly unstable and reactive, and may potentially lead to cellular disruption and affect body tissues.

What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress occurs when there may be an imbalance in the body between free radical production and antioxidants. Oxidative stress may affect lipids and proteins, changing their structure and function.

Oxidative stress is widely considered to be a contributing factor in many inflammatory health conditions, including poor heart health.

How may ubiquinol help?
Coq10 is found naturally in two forms– Ubiquinone (the oxidized) and Ubiquinol (the active form). As the active form of coq10, Ubiquinol has a higher absorption rate and bioavailability.

Ubiquinol may be considered a more effective antioxidant than ubiquinone, because it can give its two spare electrons to free radicals, leaving the rest of your body’s cells untouched.

In helping support your body’s natural production against the effects of oxidative stress, Ubiquinol supports heart health and cellular energy production. However, our bodies’ natural levels of Ubiquinol start to decline after age 30.

Before taking a Ubiquinol supplement seek medical advice from a doctor or consult your healthcare practitioner to find out whether a supplement is right for you. Always read the label.
