CoQ Absorb is an advanced softgel form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) that combines 60mg of CoQ10 with 60 IU of the natural antioxidant vitamin E and 1750 IU of beta carotene (vitamin A). The exceptional absorption rate of CoQ Absorb is 2 to 3 times as efficient as a regular softgel due to its enhanced bioavailability. The absorption rate is not dependent on the food you eat or proximity to meals, and provides effective energy support at lower dosages.
How CoQ10 Works
CoQ10 is a vital component of the energy generating process at the cellular level: it is a true coenzyme. Enzymes, which are biological catalysts, often need assistance in bringing about chemical change within the body. CoQ10 works in the mitochondrial membrane as an electron/proton donor, facilitating the process of energy production. Studies show that oral supplementation with CoQ10 will renew CoQ10 stores in cells and tissues through the mitochondria, where they enhance cellular energy production and sustainability.
Potent Antioxidant Formula
CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant. Combined with vitamin E this formula helps protect the proteins, lipids and DNA of mitochondria from oxidation. Vitamin E also enhances delivery of CoQ10 for faster absorption and energy support. Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A and is part of a large family of compounds known as carotenoids. Carotenoids are found in fruits and vegetables and are responsible for producing the color of many plants.
CoQ10 and Energy Production
CoQ10 plays an important role in generating cellular energy and works inside a cell’s mitochondria to provide the supplies necessary for energy production. CoQ10 is an electron/proton carrier that helps the mitochondria to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s energy source. This is vitally important because mitochondria must continually generate ATP to support every cell in the body. CoQ10 is found in high amounts in the cells of the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas. Oral supplementation with CoQ10 helps maintain CoQ10 stores in these crucial cells and tissues.
CoQ10 and the Immune System
According to Robert C. Adkins, M.D., author of Vita-Nutrient Solution, CoQ10 can "enhance our immune defenses." CoQ10's nutritional support of the immune system was studied by William Lee, Ph.D., who found that with a daily dosage of 60mg for three to twelve weeks, patients had significantly increased levels of immunoglobulin G, an important part of immune system function.
What People are Saying about CoQ10
"Coenzyme Q10 may be the ultimate antidote to aging, the life force your body produces to stay alive and healthy…and it can be taken as a nutritional supplement," writes William Lee, R.Ph., Ph.D. in Coenzyme Q-10.
