Description

CoQ10- What characteristic does every cell in the human body share? They all contain substantial amounts of coenzyme Q10. Without an ample supply, our body simply can not function at peak performance. As an active contributor to all aspects of cellular function, CoQ10 has become universally regarded as one of the most vital nutrients ever made available to the public.

As a powerful antioxidant, it significantly reduces the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, and is absolutely essential to the production of energy within the mitochondria. And just as the human heart contains high concentrations of this absolutely crucial nutrient, without it we would be unable to produce enough energy to live. NOW 400mg CoQ10 - our highest potency ever!*

FAQ

What is CoQ10 and what is it good for?

CoQ10 (Co-enzyme Q10) is a vitamin-like compound also known as ubiquinone. Ubiquinone combines two terms to describe this substance –quinone is a type of coenzyme and ubiquitous indicates it exists everywhere in the human body. CoQ10 plays an important role in the body’s energy production and is an essential component of the mitochondria, where it helps to metabolize fats and carbohydrates and maintain cell membrane flexibility. CoQ10 is also involved in the production of several key enzymes that are used to create ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), a key energy storage molecule. Without CoQ10, you would not be alive.

CoQ10 is also an effective antioxidant that may beneficially affect the aging process. As we age, our body’s production of CoQ10 declines by as much as 80%. Because it is so important to energy production, and therefore life, researchers believe that this decline may be a factor in the effects of aging on the human body.

The highest levels of CoQ10 are found in tissues in the body that work the hardest; like the heart, the liver, etc. Initial studies into CoQ10 found that persons with cardiac insufficiencies had very low levels of CoQ10, and that supplementation increased CoQ10 levels. So CoQ10 is not only an effective antioxidant, but it supports cardiovascular health as well.

Which of your CoQ10 products do not contain soy?

Because CoQ10 is a fat-soluble substance, many of our CoQ10 supplements include additional ingredients to facilitate absorption and utilization, including Lecithin, Vitamin E, Selenium and Hawthorne Berry. Lecithin and Vitamin E are both highly purified fractions derived from soybean oil.

How and when should I take CoQ10?

CoQ10 works better if taken with fats and oils. Many CoQ10 supplements contain oils in the base and are sold as liquid filled softgel capsules. All forms of CoQ10 will work better if taken with a meal containing fats or with healthy supplements providing fat, such as fish oil, flax oil, coconut oil, etc.

What about the quality of NOW's CoQ10?

NOW sells only the natural, 100% all-trans form of CoQ10 that is produced using natural fermentation and purchased from the leading Japanese suppliers. This is considered to be the best and most natural form availab
