|Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10, Co-Q10 Softgels
Coenzyme Q10 is essential to human life. It plays a role in the electron transport
chain, one of the body's energy-producing cycles that converts food into energy.
Research indicates that supplementation with this nutrient may support normal
heart function and provide antioxidant protection.
Coenzyme Q10 is a crucial component of the primary energy generating
cycle that takes place in each of the trillions of cells in our bodies. CoQ10
is essential for human life.
Energy Generation Requires Nutrients
The body requires many nutrients in order to perform the complex biochemical
processes that convert food into ATP "energy currency." Some of these
nutrients such as the B-vitamins are familiar to us. However, there are many
other substances which are essential to this process. Coenzyme Q10 is one of
Functions of Coenzyme Q10
Several complex metabolic pathways are required in order for the body to transform
that lunchtime sandwich into energy that you can feel and use. First glycolysis
and the Krebs' cycle break down large molecules of protein, carbohydrate and
fat into smaller components. Coenzyme Q10 is a key enzyme in the Electron Transport
Chain - the final stage in this extraordinary design. This pathway generates
90% of the ATP needed by the body from the food we eat.
ATP provides the "energy currency" for the following crucial metabolic
functions: 1) synthesis of cellular components including cholesterol and proteins
(formed primarily by the liver), 2) nerve conduction (in the brain and peripheral
nerves), and 3) energy for muscular contraction (of the heart and skeletal muscles).
- The Heart: The heart muscle (myocardium) consumes a tremendous amount
of energy. Your heart beats over 100,000 times and pumps 1,000 gallons of
blood each day! Coenzyme Q10 is necessary for the generation of the energy
required by the heart. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that
supplementation with this nutrient may support normal heart function. Its
presence is necessary for cardiac performance during exercise as exemplified
by criteria including: blood flow, oxygen utilization, contractility and exercise
tolerance. In addition, Coenzyme Q10 may play a role in the regulation of
- The Gums: Since the 1970's scientists have been researching the effects
of Coenzyme Q10 on the health of the oral tissues. Although the mechanism
of action is not known, research has established that Coenzyme Q10 has a profound
ability to preserve and maintain the health of the gums.
- Antioxidant Properties: Coenzyme Q10 plays an additional vital role
in our metabolism as a protector of lipids in cell membranes. Laboratory studies
have also shown that Coenzyme Q10 is more efficient than vitamin E, beta carotene
or lycopene in safeguarding LDL cholesterol from oxidation by peroxides. This
process is important for maintaining the health of our blood vessels.
