CoQ10

"Natural Energy Support"

Ubiquinol — the reduced, electron-rich form of CoQ10 that your body produces naturally — plays an important role in the electron transport chain of your mitochondria, where it facilitates the conversion of energy substrates and oxygen into the biological energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP) needed by your cells for life, repair and regeneration. It’s a fat-soluble antioxidant, meaning it works in the fat portions of your body, such as your cell membranes, where it mops up potentially harmful byproducts of metabolism known as reactive oxygen species.

How

CoQ10

can help you:

Ubiquinol — the reduced, electron-rich form of CoQ10 that your body produces naturally — facilitates the conversion of energy substrates and oxygen into biological energy and is critical for mitochondrial health. Taking a CoQ10/ubiquinol supplement helps protect your mitochondrial membranes from oxidative damage, and has been shown to be helpful mitochondrial function. Recent animal research suggests ubiquinol also has neuroprotective benefits that can improve your chances of recovery in case of a traumatic brain injury

Longevity

  • CoQ10 is a lipid-soluble substance whose primary role is as an essential intermediate of the electron transport system in the mitochondria. Adequate amounts of CoQ10 are necessary for cellular respiration and ATP production (7).
  • CoQ10 is a promising agent to restore Nitric oxide production and endothelial function, thereby enhancing blood flow and delivery of nutrients (8).

Brain

  • Coenzyme Q10 administration increases brain mitochondrial concentrations and exerts neuroprotective effects (4).
  • Coenzyme Q10 supplementation reverses age-related impairments in spatial learning (5).
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a promising agent for neuroprotection in neurodegenerative diseases, and can protect against dopamine neuronal damage (6).

Physical Performance

  • Coenzyme Q10 supplementation (Bio-Qinon Pharma Nord, 90 mg/day) was studied in a double-blind cross-over study of 25 Finnish top-level cross-country skiers. With CoQ10 supplementation, all measured indexes of physical performance (AET, ANT and VO2Max) improved significantly (1).
  • CoQ10 may show performance-enhancing effects during the repeated bouts of supramaximal exercises and CoQ10 might be used as ergogenic aid (2).
  • Ubiquinol supplementation enhances peak power production in trained athletes in a double-blind, placebo controlled study (3).
