|Is an essential component of cells that promotes energy production.|
|The heart muscle requires huge amounts of CoQ-10 for energy.|
|As we age the body makes less CoQ-10, affecting the heartís energy.|
|Supplementation protects the Aging deficiency process of CoQ-10.|
Parkinsonís, Cancer and Cardiovascular disease
|Research has shown that patients suffering from Parkinsonís, Cancer and Cardiovascular disease have low levels of CoQ-10, usually.|
|CoQ10 is unique in nature for its pharmacokinetic (CoEnzyme) metabolic effects and concentrates in the heart and liver tissue. (Energy storage)|
The cardiovascular benefits provided by CoQ-10) are now widely known and accepted by mainstream medical practitioners and A.D.ís alike.
How does CoQ-10 work?
Each cell in the body needs a source
of energy to survive, so cells break down sugars, fats, and amino acids to
make energy. Small enclosures within cells that make this energy are called
mitochondria. CoQ-10 exists naturally in our mitochondria and carries electrons
involved in energy metabolism. CoQ-10 is essential in the production of
adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the basic energy molecule of each cell.
In the bloodstream, CoQ-10 is mainly transported by lipoproteins such as LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein). It is thought that CoQ-10 is one of the first antioxidants to be depleted when LDL is subjected to oxidation. Hence, CoQ-10 is an important nutrient that prevents the oxidation of lipoproteins, thus potentially reducing the risk of arteries from forming plaques and getting damaged.
In healthy individuals, CoQ-10 is found in "high concentrations" in the heart, kidneys, and liver.
