Mitochondria are tiny organs within our body cells held within a membrane. In order for the cells to get their energy, the mitochondria converts energy from the foods that we eat into a form that the cells can use. But in order for mitochondria to work properly, CoQ10 is required. CoQ10 is naturally found in the body, however as we age the natural source of CoQ10 declines and so we need CoQ10 supplements to make up for this loss, in order to keep the mitochondria working properly to provide energy to our cells. Particularly, the heart which contains the densest population of mitochondria.
CoQ10 is also an antioxidant that has powerful effects to counteract oxidation in the body cells.
Statins are a class of prescription drug often used to reduce high cholesterol, but the disadvantage is that this causes a decrease in CoQ10 in the body. CoQ10 supplements are thus required if you are taking statins.
As we age, naturally the CoQ10 levels reduce in the body – even more so than with the use of statins. Aging reduces CoQ10 in the heart by 72%, whereas statins reduce levels by 40%. And often, statins are prescribed only in our later years, thus the combination of aging and statin use vastly reduces CoQ10 to critical levels. CoQ10 supplements can help to rectify tis health risk and ensure that our cells are getting enough energy.
It is a well known fact that CoQ10 is not easy for the body to absorb by itself. However there are two forms of CoQ10 – ubiquinol and ubiquinone. Ubiquinol is 8 times more absorbable than the ubiquinone form. Studies with mice show that it is 90% more absorbable in relation to exercise related fatigue, and 40% more effective in slowing age related changes in mice. Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ contains the highly bioavailable form of CoQ10 (ubiquinol) in a patented delivery system which ensures greater levels of absorption for a more effective CoQ10 supplement.
Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ also contains PrimaVie® shihajit, which research has shown to double mitochondrial CoQ10 levels.
When combined with CoQ10, shilajit helps to increase cell energy levels drastically, according to some recent studies. PrimaVie® shilajit has been shown to double CoQ10 levels in mitochondria. An energy production increase of 56% in the brain and 144% in muscles has been observed during testing when CoQ10 is combined with shilajit compared to when it is administered alone. Research has also discovered that shilajit enhances the beneficial effects of CoQ10 by:
Prolonging CoQ10 action in the body by stabilising CoQ10 in its highly bioavailable ubiquinol form.
Improving delivery of CoQ10 to the mitochondria and thus enhancing cellular energy output.
Shilajit alone is also rich source of essential substances needed by the mitochondria in order to convert fats and sugars from our food into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body´s most important source of energy. This energy is essential for many functions of the body cells.
