Our COQ10 is great for aging individuals! It is good for youthful skin, helps prevent migraines, boosts energy and stamina, and supports healthy vision and hearing by protecting the delicate tissues of your eyes and ears from free radical damage. This product is also great for cognitive and cardiovascular function. As an encapsulated gel, it product has higher absorption rate than solid CoQ10 would normally be ingested.
The body’s ability to produce and metabolize CoQ-10 has been reported to decrease with age. CoQ-10 deficiency may be caused by insufficient dietary intake of CoQ-10, impairment in CoQ-10 production, drug-induced CoQ10 depletion, gene mutations and oxidative stress. HMG-CoA reductase is an enzyme required for the synthesis of cholesterol and CoQ-10. Cholesterol lowering medications inhibit this enzyme in order to reduce cholesterol synthesis, but may also simultaneously deplete CoQ-10 status.
CoQ-10 is important for all energy-dependent processes, and is especially helpful in strengthening contraction of the heart muscle. CoQ-10 is also important for protection against free radical damage to the arterial vessels.
Blood Sugar Balance
The electron transport chain, a biochemical pathway in which CoQ-10 plays a major role, significantly impacts carbohydrate metabolism. CoQ-10 has been shown to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
