Co-enzyme Q10 is one of the most exciting discoveries of the 20th Century. As well as promoting general health, this nutrient plays a crucial role in initiating the production of energy in the body and supporting cardiovascular health. Numerous clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of co-enzyme Q10 supplementation in supporting vital areas of health. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential nutrient with a wide range of applications for human health. It is present in every cell of the body and is absolutely necessary to support key metabolic functions. This nutrient acts as a coenzyme in the energy producing pathways that fuel the bodys daily activity. CoQ10 works in the mitochondrial membrane as an electron acceptor/proton donor, facilitating the process of energy production. The body must continually generate energy to support life from these minute power plants within every cell, the mitochondria. Studies show that supplements with CoQ10 will restore depleted CoQ10 stores in cells and tissues through the mitochondria, where they enhance cellular energy production and sustainability. It is especially abundant in the energy-intensive cells of the heart, helping this organ beat more than 100,000 times each day. In addition, coenzyme Q10 acts as an antioxidant, much like vitamins C and E, helping to neutralize the cell-damaging molecules known as free radicals. CoQ10 has generated much excitement as a possible therapy for heart disease, especially congestive heart failure or a weakened heart. In some studies, patients with a poorly functioning heart have been found to improve greatly after adding the supplement to their conventional drugs and therapies. Other studies have shown that people with cardiovascular disease have low levels of this substance in their heart. Multiple studies have investigated the ability of CoQ10 to reduce the lipids that characterize harmful cholesterol build-up. An article in the journal, Atherosclerosis, reported that treatment with CoQ10 reduced the amount of plaque deposits in the coronary arteries and also reduced the incidence of plaque rupture and thrombosis key events in heart attacks. WHY ADVANCED LIFE COQ10? There are basically two types of CoQ10 according to source. The more common inexpensive form is the synthetic type. The other type is the more expensive natural CoQ10, derived from fermented algae. While the chemical configuration of both the synthetic and the natural forms of CoQ10 are similar, the effects are not. Algae-derived natural CoQ10 has more hydrogen proton power (from the sun) than normal hydrogen proton making it capable to carry more electrons. These extra electrons are available to be donated to unstable oxygen molecules known as oxidants or free radicals. Advanced Life Co Enzyme Q10 is exclusively sourced from a fermented algae making it not only more powerful, but just as importantly - totally natural. Dosage: Adults and children 12 years and over.
