CoQ10 (short for Coenzyme Q10) is an essential element for many daily functions and is required by every single cell in the body. As an antioxidant that protects cells from the effects of aging, CoQ10 has been used in medical practice for decades, especially to treat heart problems.
Although the body produces coenzyme Q10, it does not always do so consistently. CoQ10 deficiency or CoQ10 deficiency is most often associated with the harmful effects of oxidative stress (also called free radical damage).
CoQ10 deficiency is now thought to be linked to conditions such as cognitive impairment, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, heart disease and muscle conditions.
In fact, the antioxidant capacity of CoQ10 is what makes it one of the most popular anti-aging supplements in the world.
CoQ10 is present in the human body at the highest levels in the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas. It is stored in the mitochondria of your cells, often called the “powerhouse” of cells, and is therefore involved in energy production.
It is synthesized in the body naturally and is used for important functions such as supplying cells with energy, transporting electrons and regulating blood pressure levels. As a “coenzyme”, CoQ10 also helps other enzymes to work properly. The reason it is not considered a “vitamin” is that all animals, including humans, can produce small amounts of coenzymes on their own, even without food.
Coenzyme Q10 is needed not only for the production of cellular energy, but also to protect cells from damage caused by harmful free radicals.
It has been shown to help recycle vitamin C and vitamin E, further increasing the effect of vitamins and antioxidants that are already working in the body.
Although the body has the ability to produce some CoQ10 on its own, CoQ10 production naturally decreases with age – just when we need our cells to help us protect ourselves the most.
In addition to aging and genetic defects, some factors contributing to CoQ10 deficiency / low levels are thought to include:
Rarely can a person suffer from “primary deficiency of coenzyme Q10”, which is a genetic defect that stops the body from synthesizing this compound properly. These people usually need a CoQ10 supplement to help reverse the symptoms of primary CoQ10 deficiency related to the brain and muscles.
Why choose CoQ10 30 mg from Pure Nutrition?
|Coenzyme Q10||30 mg|
|Serving Size||1 Softgel|
COQ10 is found in such low amounts in most foods that even a healthy diet cannot provide us with the daily recommended doses.
Depending on your health, CoQ10 dosing recommendations can range from 30 milligrams to 300 milligrams.
We recommend that you take 1 tablet 1 to 3 times a day with food.
Although it can be taken at any time, it is best to take CoQ10 with a fat-containing food, as it is fat-soluble. If you are taking a dose of CoQ10 that exceeds 100 mg per day, it is best to divide the doses into two or three smaller portions, which will help absorption.
