Coenzyme Q10 supplement
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10, known as ubiquinone) is a fat soluble, vitamin-like compound found in virtually every cell of every living thing. CoQ10 is present in all human cells, reaching its highest concentrations in and around the energy producing mitochondria. It is needed for every basic cellular function, including energy production and, in fact, even life itself.
Because of its unique, fat-soluble structure CoQ10 can readily exist within cell membranes and facilitate both its protective antioxidant and energetic functions.
No other molecule can do this!
CoQ10 levels are known to decrease naturally with aging either by reduced production efficiency (biosynthesis) within the body, or by increased metabolic requirements, or both. Our natural production of CoQ10 slows as we age, often by more than 50% by age 50. Some diet and lifestyle patterns and prescription drug therapies are known to deplete CoQ10 unnaturally. Of particular concern are the cholesterol lowering drugs known generally as “statins” which are known to disrupt CoQ10's natural biosynthesis within the body.
CoQ10 Mitochondrial Energy Complex is nutritional fortification for optimal cellular energy and health. Its exclusive, proprietary formula was developed from years of research by the NeoLife Scientific Advisory Board and our global Science and Technology Team. It is packed with specially selected nutrients known to play key roles in healthy, lifelong mitochondrial energy production.*
Why A CoQ10 Supplement?
■ CoQ10 levels are known to decrease naturally with aging; either by reduced production efficiency (biosynthesis) within the body, and/or by increased metabolic requirements. This often results in more than a 50% drop by age 50.
■ Diet and lifestyle patterns are known to deplete CoQ10 unnaturally.
■ The use of some prescription drugs in particular cholesterol lowering “statins” and other over-the-counter medications can deplete CoQ10 in the body.
■ Low CoQ10 levels have been directly associated with higher risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, neurodegenerative diseases, certain genetic disorders, and aging.
■ Low levels of CoQ10 have been associated with the negative impact of three of the primary biologic markers of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS); obesity, oxidative stress and inflammation.
■ With L-cysteine, the “rate-limiting” amino acid needed for cellular biosynthesis of the mitochondrial protector glutathione. L-cysteine is known to support mitochondrial function and strengthen inner-cellular protective systems.*
■ Other key ingredients; sunflower lecithin, coconut medium chain triglycerides (MCT) oil, rice bran oil support CoQ10 absorption.
