Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is essential for healthy functioning of the mitochondria, membrane-bound organelles within the cells which convert energy from food into forms which can be used by the cells. For this reason mitochondria have often been dubbed the power plants of the cells. CoQ10 is needed to convert the energy from fats and sugars into usable cellular energy. However, as we age, the body´s production of natural CoQ10 decreases considerably. With a plentiful supply of CoQ10 from CoQ10 supplements, the mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout the body, including the most densely populated area – the heart. It is therefore an effective heart supplement. CoQ10 is also one of the powerful natural antioxidants and apart from supporting mitochondrial function, helps to protect proteins, and mitochondrial DNA from oxidation, which can in turn help to protect against many diseases and even cancer.
As people are becoming aware that statins, a class of drugs used to lower cholesterol levels, reduce CoQ10 levels in the blood and possibly also in the tissues, many are turning to CoQ10 supplements.
The normal aging process may reduce CoQ10 to an even greater extent than statins and thus CoQ10 supplements are needed as we age. Statins have been shown to reduce plasma CoQ10 levels by almost 40%. Yet aging reduces CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by 72%. Consequently, extremely low levels of CoQ10 can occur, causing a severe depletion of cellular energy. With CoQ10 supplements, we can help to increase cell energy levels.
CoQ10 is notoriously difficult to absorb. Studies have shown that the Super Ubiquinol form of CoQ10 has 8 times the absorbability of ubiquinone and that higher levels of ubiquinol remain in the blood much longer than ubiquinone. Thus, Super Ubiquinol helps to increase CoQ10 absorption in the body. In studies measuring exercise-induced fatigue, ubiquinol was 90% more effective than ubiquinone, and in trials with middle-aged mice, ubiquinol was shown to be 40% more effective than ubiquinone in slowing age-related changes.
