Healthy functioning of the mitochondria requires CoQ10 levels to be normal. Mitochondria are organelles within a membrane within our body cells. Their job is to convert energy from the foods we eat so that the cells can use it as fuel. Hence the nickname ‘power plants of the cells’. CoQ10 is required in order for the cells to convert the energy from fats and sugars in what we consume into usable cellular energy. However, the natural aging process sees a huge decline in natural CoQ10 made in our bodies. So we need CoQ10 supplements to keep the required levels for adequate cellular energy. With a plentiful supply of CoQ10 from CoQ10 supplements, the mitochondria works efficiently in every part of our bodies, including the heart, which contains the most mitochondria. CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant and, apart from supporting mitochondrial function, helps protect proteins, and mitochondrial DNA from oxidation.
Statins are a class of drug prescribed by doctors in order to treat high cholesterol. But statins also reduce CoQ10 levels in the body. Seen as statins tend to be prescribed to those over the age of 50, whose CoQ10 levels are already low due to the natural aging process, CoQ10 levels are often extremely low. Thus, CoQ10 supplements are required to boost cellular energy throughout the body.
CoQ10 levels decrease with age, even more so than the reduction seen in those prescribed with statins. A reduction of around 40% is bserved in statin users, whereas ageing can reduce it up to 72%. Obviously a combination sees a larger decrease than either. CoQ10 supplements can help to counteract this.
It is well known that CoQ10 is not easily absorbed by the body. But studies show that the ubiquinol form of CoQ10 can be absorbed up to 8 times better than the ubquinone form of the same chemical. Studies whereby mice were tested during fatigue induced by exercise, results showed ubiquinol to be 90% more effective than ubiquinone. A further study into age-related changes in mice showed that ubiquinol was 40% more effective in slowing the process.
Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 supplements with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ contain the highly bioavailable ubiquinol form of CoQ10 in a patented delivery system which ensures greater levels of absorption.
Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ also contains PrimaVie® shihajit. This substance is known to double CoQ10 levels in mitochondria according to studies.
Some recent studies have shown that we can achieve a higher level of cellular energy by combining CoQ10 with shilajit. This particular shilajit (PrimaVie Shilajit) is proven to double the mitochondria CoQ10 levels. By combining these two ingredients, we can increase brain energy production by more than 50%, and muscle energy production by over 140%, which is much higher than CoQ10 when taken alone.
Research has shown that shilajit enhances the health effects of CoQ10 in the following ways:
Stabilises the CoQ10 in its highly biovailable ubiquinol form, thus helping to prolong the benefits in the cells
Improving delivery of CoQ10 to the mitochondria and thus enhancing cellular energy output.
Shilajit itself is also an abundant source of essential natural chemicals that help the mitochondria to convert fats and sugars from our food into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body´s most important source of energy. Without this energy source, the cells cannot perform many essential functions.
